Monday, August 31, 2009      0 comments

I had a tough time dragging myself from bed this morning. I guess I still haven't gotten the hang of going to bed early on Sunday nights. I'm sure it doesn't help that I end up sleeping in both Saturday and Sunday so i don't end up feeling tired... Read more

Woops! I haven't updated in a while. But don't you worry; it doesn't mean I've been slacking off. I finished c25k week 4 on 8/21: I wasn't feeling well on Thursday and was even less well on Friday when I got up for my run, but I wasn't go... Read more

For years and years, I have woken up automatically at about 4-4:30am. I think perhaps because that's a point in my sleep cycle when I'm very lightly asleep, and any outside noise or physical discomfort is most likely to wake me up. However, I... Read more

I forgot to update about the end of the 10 week challenge: Not only did I survive, but I met my goal. It was close; for a while there I wasn't sure if I would make it, but for the last week and a half I've been weighing between 170.1-168.9... Read more

Wooohooo! Ok, so aside from my son waking up at 11:30pm, and my cat getting sick not long after that, I slept really solidly last night. Seriously, I'm in some bizarro world where getting 5 solid hours of sleep is a good night's sleep. I ... Read more

I need a code word that means "did not sleep well", then I can just put that that at the top of my posts and avoid having to repeat myself every time i post one of these. If you have suggestions, please send them my way. Warning: this turn... Read more

Has it become redundant to mention that I didn't sleep well before my run? Ok then, moving on: I woke up at 4:40am with sore legs and butt from my Slim in 6 session on Saturday. Serves me right trying to cross train and build some mus... Read more

I swear I have yet to have a full night's sleep before a run. Further, I have yet to NOT dream about running in the morning before I run. It's so firmly on my mind that my subconscious is already running or something. So of course today w... Read more

Back in January, when I recommitted myself to weight loss, my exercise program consisted of one 15 minute walk a day and a Partner Acrobatics class once every 2 weeks. I was tired and out of shape. I thought I could never do more than that. ... Read more

Today I think I did everything right: I jumped out of bed at 4:57am, (before my alarm, but only just) I made myself half a peanut butter sandwich and ate only a quarter and gulped down some water. I was ready to go by 5:30. Actually... Read more

A couple of things I did differently helped to make today easier than Wednesday but it was still harder than Monday: 1. I decided that my insane workout schedule was just too hard this week as it was my first week of running, so I took ye... Read more

Awake at 5am after a night of fitful sleep. Much like the first day of school, I was feeling full of anticipation and anxiety about our first run. So, sleep, yeah, it didn't happen so much. Anyway, alarm went off, and I got up and g... Read more
