Saturday, September 17, 2011 11 comments
Yes, I love running more every time I run a race. I hurt my ankle the other day and thought I might not be able to do this run. Well, I did it. I made it in 1:13:28. My goal was 1:15. I was hoping I would at least do 1:20 the longest so I feel g... Read more

OK! I'm pretty sick of eating when I'm not really all that hungry. There was one time yesterday when I actually thought 'why am I doing this??" and still ate more chocolate. what is wrong with me. I have no control. Maybe if I locked myself up??... Read more

Finally I can get into a pair of my size 12's. I have to lose a few more pounds to get into some of the others but am very excited by the prospect of getting into some of my old favorites. It was only a few years ago I fit into them (probably 4)... Read more

I did it! I made it 10k today. Now I have to try to get faster before my 1st race at the end of August. I did this 10k on the treadmill since I'm a wimp and don't like to run in the sun (lupus issues and it's already HOT) I'd probably have to ad... Read more

Made my 1st 4 miler - 51.22min. not quite my goal but close!!
Monday, July 04, 2011 5 comments
Wasn't sure how 4 miles would be. I've done it on the treadmill a few times but it's always so different outside. I did 3.5 outside one day but really hate running in the heat. I did my heart rate monitor and walked when it got too high. I let i... Read more

Can't seem to get myself away from eating too much. Something has been taking over and I tell myself "I'll just have this on little thing" and I keep going back for more. I finally get myself out of it and I feel terrible. I just haven't been ab... Read more

Gotta control that heart rate!
Thursday, April 21, 2011 3 comments
Had a personal training session today and found out I've been letting my heart rate get too high for too long. I could still talk but didn't know I was at 95% of my heart rate so I need to run slower. (I'm already VERY slow) I will try because m... Read more

Had a meeting last night and the hostess had made ice cream (did I mention it was one of my FAVORITE foods?) Homemade chocolate, strawberry, canteloupe, and soft vanilla. Well, you know I had to try all of them. Way too much chocolate, actually ... Read more
