A feeling of deja vu is coming over you, I'm sure. I even think my blog title is a repeat. I spent some time trying the Weight Watchers points program. Overall, it was a bust. Too many extra points all over the place and it felt like I ha... Read more
Into life a little rain...
Tuesday, August 07, 2012      4 comments

and a monsoon must fall! The deluge of rain made a run un-doable for me this a.m. but my cardio tennis class later in the morning REALLY tired me out so it's just as well, I suppose. An interval walk tonight will do nicely and then I can run ... Read more

I know it's just one day...but how can I track everything - be at 1400 calories for the day, done more than an hour and a half of cardio (sweaty, breathing hard cardio) and be up one more pound this morning? I can hear you all now...it's water,... Read more

Welcome to day one of a new month. I'm going to start this month off right with good choices. Had a fiber/protein rich breakfast, walked the Kona Bean for 35 minutes and am getting ready for my hour on the elliptical trainer. Today is a "slow... Read more

They screamed "No!" Mile 4 of the 6 mile run this morning was when they started gasping. My poor legs. They've run a total of 16 miles in three days... OK, no more today guys. I promise...gotta' rest up for Cardio Tennis tomorrow! :-D... Read more
Feeling Fine

Got my five mile run done EARLY this morning, leaving before 7 a.m. My time was not a PR (not that I was expecting one) but I was a little tired from the 4 mile run and a two hour stint cleaning house yesterday. I put in the mileage and that's... Read more
A sub-12 minute pace today!

Ran four miles today. After staying up late for the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympics (midnight, people!) and delaying the start of my run because of the Olympic cycling event, I did NOT think I would have a stellar run. I debated about even ... Read more

I've signed up for the Wicked 10K again. This year it will be on October 27th. I am shooting for a sub 1 hour time. This may not sound like a huge honkin' deal - but for me...it kinda' is. With the recent gains in poundage, my running has g... Read more
Good Intentions and THEN...
Wednesday, July 25, 2012      5 comments

Yesterday was full of lofty goals for staying around 1500 calories. Truly. THEN the hubster arrived home and he hatched this brilliant plan to order from a local place called BoardWok (I know - clever, right? We are a beach town and their me... Read more

SO relieved that I have two indoor workouts scheduled for today...I just took the new puppy (19 weeks - we call her Kona, but she also answers to "Hey! Stop that!") for a 22 minute fast walk (she has SO much energy) and it was NASTY out there. ... Read more
Ignoring the Meteorologist

My five mile run this morning was way more pleasant than yesterday's four miler...even though the weather forecast was for 97% humidity this morning - I found it to be much less than that at 7 a.m. and there was even a breeze! The cloud cover l... Read more
running + humidity = blech
Saturday, July 21, 2012      4 comments

Ran four miles this morning - oy, the humidity! I was sluggish and slow but plodded on. My last run was this past Monday and I had been avoiding running because of the awful heat + humidity we were experiencing all week. I'm not so sure that ... Read more

After another week full of battling fatigue, getting my workouts done anyway, then eating to make up for - something, (I don't know what) I am feeling way more focused today. I made good choices for breakfast, worked out and then continued to m... Read more
Monday and a new start
Monday, July 16, 2012      6 comments

New starts don't always have to happen on Mondays - it just happens to be Monday and after another rough week and some bad choices, well, it's just time to get started. I know...AGAIN. My 4 mile run this morning was a good one, though hot a... Read more
