Friday, May 23, 2008      3 comments

So I decided if I was going to put what I've learned into a program, I would call it the FIVE PLAN. -Workout FIVE days a week, vigorously. -Eat at least FIVE servings of fruits and veggies per day -Stay on the low end of your range FIVE... Read more
Reflections on the last 8 weeks...
Tuesday, May 20, 2008      4 comments

Not that I've been in short supply of this, but it is commanded by our BLC fearless leaders to blog about it, so blog I shall. This last 8 weeks have been a little different so I guess it's worth a moment or two of introspection. Things I ... Read more

What a fantastic weekend! It was like something out of a vacation. Friday I indulged my fried shrimp craving at Saltgrass (with 5 fried and 5 grilled), and then we walked down to the new bar we found across the way (it's 10 mins away by foot, ... Read more

They just told us today is the last day of long hours, tomorrow is a normal day and no work this weekend. I say - wheeeeeeeeeee! That is all. Going home to do the happy dance some more, to celebrate that, the fact that I'm still hanging o... Read more
Body Image and a Decision
Wednesday, May 14, 2008      3 comments

So I've made a firm decision. Monday it is back to food tracking and calorie counting, and back to aggressively pursuing weight loss (well safely aggressive at least), and trying to split the difference with running endurance training and stren... Read more

I'm down to 186.4 for the second day in a row. Yay! I would be happy if I can stay here or below. I'd like to see the lower side of the 180's this month. I am actually right now about 7 lbs from not being obese on the BMI. Again, I don't ta... Read more
Body like a battle axe?
Wednesday, May 07, 2008      2 comments

Someone from my past life that I left a year ago messaged me on IM yesterday and we chatted... I learned so much from that job I can't feel hate or regret from it, but man, I certainly went a little looney there. When someone jokes around sayin... Read more
Day 13 of 18, time for a rest
Monday, May 05, 2008      2 comments

So I had a FANTASTIC run on Saturday, I walked 1/4 mile to warm up and ran the next 1/4 to the track on the pavement, then ran 1/4 to get in my groove. Then I started 2 miles of true HIIT (though my rest periods were probably longer than they s... Read more
Day 12 of 18, oh finally!
Saturday, May 03, 2008      0 comments

Not much time to chat, have to leave work in 1.5 hours, but a few things. -I might be back to not eating enough, thats one thing I didn't consider. Before when I was losing weight I was doing mostly light/moderate cardio with little bits o... Read more
Day 11 of 18, yay Friday, or HIIT me with your best shot!
Friday, May 02, 2008      0 comments

HIIT (or fake HIIT that you can do on a treadmill, or High Intensity Interval Training) kicked my sorry butt yesterday. I warmed up with 2 minutes of walking, then stretching, then running steady for 5 minutes, then off an on going hard (9:30 m... Read more
Day 10 of 18, trying to understand
Thursday, May 01, 2008      1 comments

So I am about to do something I have never done before. I'm checking in with my Sapphires, about to post a gain. Not even an itty bitty one, I weighed in today at 189.0, 1.4 lbs higher than last week. I would feel bad, and I can't deny that I... Read more

Wednesday, April 30, 2008      3 comments

Dear scale, Ya know, we've really had some good times together. You've been with me since the apartment, and you were there for me when that funny white scale decided to run off and leave me without a consistent weight, he was so unreliabl... Read more
Day 8 of 18, a tired wheeeeee!
Tuesday, April 29, 2008      1 comments

So I spent some time yesterday when I should have been working reading up on running. Marathon training is serious stuff! I am not sure I would ever want to do that, but you never know. A month ago or so running a mile sounded just as absurd.... Read more
Day 7 of 18 (and Sunday), is it over yet?
Monday, April 28, 2008      0 comments

Blargh. One day off was NOT enough, it was a great day (got lots done, and got some good chill time) but I need my other day. I wish I could take one day off both working and working out, but I just don't see that happening unless I really cu... Read more
