Wednesday, September 07, 2011      0 comments

It's true I am happy with my weight gain (and I may be a little crazy). Last week we had training camp for the newbies on the BLC-17 challenge. They did some recruiting earlier to get some people who are like me, close to goal. And when I ... Read more

Last night, while fixing supper, my daughter (23yo and quite a little hottie) interrupted me with a comment... "you sure do look skinny!". Now she has always been a little cheerleader for me whenever I need it. She thinks I looked great 20lbs ag... Read more

Part of me is highly frightened by this image... it really looks painful in so many ways. But it's truly amazing at the same time. I can't even imagine what it would feel ... Read more

Finished up W4D1 of Spark my way to 5k training this morning. I ran a full 35 minutes no stopping. I'm quite proud of myself. I was nervous going out, not sure I could do it. I know I still have a long way to go with my goals but each step ... Read more

I'm not actually taking the plunge YET but I did sign up for a half-marathon training program. It onl cost me $10 which I can handle and still be motivated. The next step is forking out the $95 for race registration. That will be the most I've s... Read more
I am quitting my diet...
Monday, June 27, 2011      7 comments

Mostly that is. I am finishing up my 5k training and plan to roll (run) straight into half marathon training. And my diet just isn't cooperating. I've been on the Dukan diet since 5/20. I have lost 10lbs in that time and feel awesome! The ... Read more
0-3, so disappointed
Wednesday, June 08, 2011      5 comments

I set high goals for June for myself. My thought process was if I set reasonable goals then wouldn't be much motivation to push harder. So I set my goal for 40 miles running and 60 miles biking. That's 3 3 mile runs, and 4 15 miles bikes. A... Read more

In pant size at least!! For the day at least!! I've been a size 12 for several years. And at times, I was probably more of a 14 but I refused to buy bigger clothes. I have all my pants sorted in my closest by size, 12s, 10s and 8s. I ... Read more

Last night I cheated. I have been doing the Dukan diet for 16 days, and I am down 6.2 lbs. I feel great. I am not hungry, and am having no issues with eating the incredibly restrictive diet. But this week I had a craving I just could n... Read more

I did day two of the Spark my way to a 5K training plan. And I feel AWESOME! I went about 30 minutes later than normal to try and experience less heat. Eh, didn't work but there was less sun so that was a plus. I left my brand new, onl... Read more

Jam Fest 5K recap
Saturday, May 28, 2011      2 comments

I checked on line (athlinks) for the results and date of the one and only 5K I have ever completed as a full run. It was almost 6 years ago, 4/8/06 and I finished in 35:04. Not an impressive time but it was a PR none the less. It was a real eye ... Read more
