Trigger Foods
Thursday, July 22, 2010      5 comments

I guess I've always known that there are some foods that make me want MORE instead of leaving me feeling satisfied. Potato chips are like that. You know, "you can't eat just one!" Cheetos, too. My mom and I were in college together and she could... Read more

I completed C25K (couch to 5K) W5D1 today! It includes three 5 minute runs, but I changed the last 5 minutes into 8 minutes. I was amazed! It wasn't hard! I never started breathing hard and my HR only got up to 151! It's been getting up to 160-1... Read more

I was asked about personal trainers, so I thought I'd share my answer in a post! This is my second time to have a personal trainer (PT). The two experiences have been pretty different. Last time, I was at a gym where they train PTs. I ... Read more

"Lazy" Day
Monday, July 19, 2010      2 comments

I had a very slow start to my day. Since my hubby had to leave for work at 6:30, I wasn't able to run. And, I had thought about taking my dd to the park, but it started raining at 7:15. We've gotten a lot of rain the past 2 days! So, I spen... Read more

Well, my husband's schedule this week has thrown me a curve. To get in my workouts, I've been getting up at 6 to swim or run before he leaves at 7 or 7:15. Well, he said he has to leave by 6:30 every day this week - and not getting home until 10... Read more

Thursday, July 15, 2010      7 comments

I had to run on a treadmill today. I really don't like running on a treadmill and this is the first time I've done it since starting C25K. Anyway, I forgot my iPod and the PodCast was supposed to help me find my pace. I started walking. Fir... Read more

Wednesday, July 14, 2010      10 comments

I got my HRM yesterday and got to use it for the first time today. First of all, I had a hard time getting it to work, but I finally placed it up higher (really under the base of my sports bra) and it worked! And, boy was I in for some surprises... Read more
Weigh In, Plans, and Breathing While Swimming
Tuesday, July 13, 2010      3 comments

First of all, I had my weekly weigh in this morning. I'm glad the scale is still moving, but I only lost 1/2 pound this week. (Total lost: 6.5 pounds in 6 weeks.) Kind of disappointing, but hopefully next week will be more. As far as workou... Read more
