C25K (a bit modified)
Friday, September 09, 2011      0 comments

Today I did W1D1 of C25K at the gym. I had to do it on the octane eliptical (which much closer mimics running than a standard eliptical) as my knees just aren't up to running yet. I tried the treadmill yesterday. It wasn't pleasant. So today I g... Read more

Had a good time on vacation. Having a surprisingly easy time getting back on track, both food wise and daily doings wise. The kids started school today, so I think that helped a lot. There is structure to our days now. It's fantastic. The c... Read more

Sicker than a dog right now. Eating doesn't appeal to me. Though I did have some soup and a smoothie for lunch. I'm exhausted. My body aches. My eyes burn. My head aches. So, naturally, we're going on vacation tonight. DH asked if I st... Read more

I was cleaning this morning, and after a while I realized something. I kept having to pull up my size 18 pants that I had just begun to stuff myself in to a short time ago. What?! Er, um, I mean, YAY!! 16s, here I come! Cycle... Read more

Whew! Been back on track, fully, since Wednesday. And I've been greeted with a whopping 3.5 lb weight loss. I'm down to 214.5 now! Getting so close to the hundreds! I know in the grand scheme of all things health, the scale produces ... Read more

I feel better today. I went to the grocery store and stocked up on yogurt, lean meat and veggies. I'm still working out some kinks, but I don't feel so overwhelmed. I've not been working out, so I know I need to work on that. My energy level is... Read more

I'm really struggling. I did fairly well at my dad's. I veered off plan a little, but did ok considering. Since we've been back home, I've wanted to eat everything in sight. It's killing me! I still sit at 218, so that's a plus. I just really ne... Read more

Tomorrow we are going out of town to visit my dad. I should fare okay. We aren't leaving until after 3 since DH has to work, so I should be able to do all my standard meals before that, and pack a dinner I can have. It's Sunday I need to beware ... Read more

I started typing R2 C1, and thought, I wish I was on D2 of the cycle so I could write R2D2... LOL oh well, maybe next cycle. I am such a dork. Anyways, this is the first day I've been fully compliant. It's been really rough getting back int... Read more

Which would be a new sports bra! Why am I so excited? A couple reasons. I'm getting another great bra, the same one as the one I have now (different color). You read that right, one. I am so over washing that thing every night ju... Read more

The gym is my love again.

I've acquired a new love for the gym. When I first started going, last August, I loved it. I was skittish at first, but I was head over heels in love. Most weeks I was going 7 days a week. Then after about 3 months, it waned. I would ... Read more
Small scale victory
Friday, August 12, 2011      2 comments

For now anyway. I like to teeter. After a week or more of teetering at 221 and 221.5, I'm down today. To 219. If I teeter between 219 and 219.5 for a bit, that's okay with me. Because today I'm down 2 lbs. And 20 lbs away from onederl... Read more

Still teetering between 221 and 221.5, though yesterday I saw 220.5 again. Sneaky devil. I noticed today, while putting my hands on my hips... 1) my back is feeling a bit more boney. There's less padding there. My lower back is more de... Read more

Ok, so this particular one's not so old. At the gym today, I was trying to change it up a bit. I typically use the same three machines. Treadmill, elliptical, arc trainer. Today I added time on the stationary bike to my arc trainer time of ... Read more
