Not to perfection.. just moving forward ;) Last week was INCREDIBLE. We had the carpet replaced in my apt, which meant moving tons of furniture and reorganizing once the carpet was in place... we successfully launched a health intervention ... Read more

So call me gumby… I’m flexible. I finished week 7 of Couch to 5k today and realized that I’m ready for a change. Why? I was trying to get my speed faster, when it dawned on me that this was never the point. I don’t want to be the fastest runner,... Read more

W7D2 down. My first run on a treadmill since W1D1. I found out I run a lot slower than I thought I did. So, I made a promise to myself. No more doing this for speed. I'm satisfied that I'm jogging for 25 minutes, AT ALL! There will always be tim... Read more

I had to take a picture of my leftover cake in this coffee shop so that I could send it to you.... Here is what happened. After lunch, I went to study in a coffee shop. I must have not stuffed myself, because I was suddenly hungry again. S... Read more

I've had a lot of work to do on myself to not constantly desire ice cream and other sweets. I never thought I'd get there. Yesterday I had 3 mini peppermint patties, and afterwards, I literally felt SICK!! So, I can tell that my taste buds are f... Read more

Yesterday, I was mentioning to my sweetie how difficult it is sometimes to work so hard and see the scale just staying there day after day. We both know that looking at the scale doesn't tell you much about the changes happening inside (bone den... Read more

Thursday, August 21, 2008      1 comments

I DID IT TODAY!!! 20-minute run! YAY! I kept about a 10-minute mile pace, which was actually easier to do after the first few minutes. It wasn't easy getting out there, but having my watch telling me how far I'd gone and how fast I was going hel... Read more

They weren't so bad! I was very impressed by my pace. I was tired near the end. We did 8 minutes, walked 5 minutes, and then did 8 minutes more. I ran a pace under 10 minutes much of the time!! I'm hopeful this will build my stamina for Saturday... Read more
