1/2 Marathon

Posted by LindaB on September 20, 2014 at 5:06pm 1 Comment

Today I completed a 1/2 Marathon training walk today.  13.1 miles in 4hrs 11 minutes.

My feet were screaming somewhere around the 10th mile and I had to pee somewhere around the 6.5 mile mark.  Made it through.  I'm confident that I can kill the 39 miles come October 25th.

Struggling in other areas - but in total Beast Mode in this one.  I'll take it.  At least it keeps me maintaining.

Gotta Get It Done

I know I always talk about my need to quit the juice (Coke) but the time has come to get it done.  Get ready for the headaches and mood swings that come along with the caffeine withdrawals.

So I slept in this morning but we went for a 2 mile walk at work after our morning meeting. So I got half my steps in and because the walk involved a lot of hills it also counted for all of my floors for the day too. I'm over on my steps and well over on my floors. Tomorrow since I don't have work I'm going to sleep in a little then bike and walk and I think I need to do some research with regards to strength training. I know I need to do it but I've been avoiding. I know thought that by…

still slacking

Posted by Ovelia19 on September 18, 2014 at 9:00pm 4 Comments

I chose sleep this morning over exercise. I know what my problem is its the change of sunrise. It's now dark out when my alarm is going off and I feel as though I should still be asleep. I'm just going to have to force it. I did work my ass off today after work and got in my fitbit goals so that's something. I also allowed myself some peach cobbler my mom made. I've been really good about my food and I've learned that depriving myself of things makes me fall off the wagon hard. So all I'm…

slacking

Posted by Ovelia19 on September 17, 2014 at 9:30pm 0 Comments

I've been a bit of a slacker this week. My calories are matching my activity level though so I'm not really worried. Sunday my steps were over my goal and I met all my goals for the day Monday o was about 2500 steps off, yesterday I was almost 4000 steps below. I got really distracted reading. Today I wanted to start book 7 in the series I'm reading but I told myself I could only start it if I finished my steps. I worked my ads off while at work to get all 10000 in. I left just enough to be…

I promise to not flood you with pregnancy updates because that is not what this place is about, but its kinda what is going on with me right now, so there will be some. The other day I mentioned that I'm at that awkward in between stage where I don't really look pregnant, but more like I just had one too many cheeseburgers.…

My Story

Posted by MarthaG on September 15, 2014 at 6:53pm 6 Comments

When I started about 3 years ago I was tracking my food on livestrong.com and committed to eat healthy and move more.  Simple right?  It worked!

I wrote up my experience for livestrong.com and got picked for a feature.  They even sent a professional photographer to shoot 100's of pictures of me.  That was fun.

Just got the link for my story:…

Eating Healthy = Beauty Inside and Out

Posted by MarthaG on September 15, 2014 at 9:05am 0 Comments

I think we (or at least I) focus so much on losing weight that we forget that there are LOTS of reasons to eat healthy and take care of ourselves.   Eating a healthy diet also helps us to just look good.  This article from Sparkpeople reminded me of this and has these suggestions:

Drink plenty of water

Limit alcohol

Sip green tea daily

Avoid simple carbs

Nourish your skin with healthy foods

did great today

Posted by Ovelia19 on September 13, 2014 at 11:30pm 0 Comments

I biked this morning I was a little slower this morning than normal which is fine. Still got my 6 miles in. And I was a little lazy this week with my steps so I decided to make up for it today, kind of as a way to punish myself so I stayed on track next week. So my goal today was about 15500 steps. I walked 3 miles this morning after biking but then I went shopping to get in the rest lol. I have actually hit over 17000 steps for the day which is great but my knees aren't thrilled. Not huge…
