This morning I started my C25K app and looked at the workout plan. I automatically told myself "You cannot do this!" Today was week 5 day 2 and the plan was 8 minute jog, 5 minute walk then 8 minute jog with a 5 minute warm-up and 5 minute coo... Read more
Wrong Way!
Tuesday, April 30, 2013      4 comments

I stepped on the scale today and nearly cried. I gained four pounds last week. Shouldn't I be going the other direction? Then again, I have been going the wrong direction for over a year. I have gained nearly 60 pounds in a little over a yea... Read more

Thank you to everyone who comment on my last blog. I appreciate all of the support and suggestions. My foot is still bothering me but I am doing some stretches and using insoles to help. I will try the foam roller and see if that will help. ... Read more
Foot Pain
Friday, April 26, 2013      4 comments

It never fails. When I am determined to work hard, I either get hurt or get sick. On Sunday I went to the park with my family and did my C25K there. By my last running portion my toes on my right foot were numb and the bottom of my foot hurt.... Read more

I don't want to give up on my goals for this week, but I have to give myself permission to mess up every now and then. I tend to jump in with both feet and try to change everything at once. Let me tell you, it doesn't work. The goals I set fo... Read more

Bad Day Turned Good
Sunday, April 21, 2013      5 comments

It never fails to amaze me how much better life is after a workout. Even a so-so one. Last night I did not sleep well. I'm not sure why, but I was wide awake at 3:45 and did not go back to sleep until nearly 6 then was up at 7:30. I was not ... Read more
It's Been A While

I have not been on SparkPeople for over a year. I was very active for two years and lost 65 pounds, but in the months before I left I had started gaining weight. I was not in a good place. In the past year I have gained back most of what I lo... Read more

For two years I have asked, whined, and begged for a treadmill. Finally, we could afford one and I bought it over the weekend. Just getting it into the house and putting it together was a workout! My arms are still sore. I was so excited to ... Read more

I'm baaaack! I took a much needed break to get myself together. When I left Spark, I gave myself permission to do whatever. Okay, so I wasn't exactly following a healthy life style before, which is why I felt I needed to leave for a while... Read more

I have a major case of the blahs today. I just don’t have the energy to do much of anything. My workout sucked this morning, but at least I did one. I was too lazy to pack a lunch so I just grabbed an apple and some Wheat Thins, then was too ... Read more

Thursday, February 02, 2012      1 comments

Have you ever had a hollow day? You know, one of those days where you just feel hungry all of the time. I started my day with a nice breakfast of oatmeal, mixed berries with just a sprinkle of flax and hemp granola for crunch, fresh orange-gra... Read more
