My last post was a month ago. My absence reflects the amount of effort I have put in to improving my health. Zero. Ok, not all the way zero, because I do attend a walk & run group- it meets many times during the week and I go to three sessions- Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday. I do about an hour of cardio, either walking or running or a combo. That's all I do though- the rest of the week, nothing. I should be walking one way to work, but haven't found the motivation.
Good morning lovely Blog to Lose community of fabulous people :) My boyfriend and I spent the morning hiking with the two dogs and it felt great! We went hiking on South Mountain here in Arizona and wow the weather was absolutely perfect. The prime rattlesnake weather kind of freaks me out but knock on wood we haven't seen any yet this Spring! We normally pick a mountain that goes up and down a few times before a flat walk back but today we decided to do a more challenging route. What I love…Continue
Well the freezing rain stopped enough to get our run in. It was 30 degrees cold, but we certainly warmed up and shed clothing along the way.
During the run we experienced three hills that we were totally unprepared for as we have only trained on flat ground. I know mistake, but we are just starting out as runners. Considering the lack of training over the last 7 weeks, I don't think we did that badly. I actually shaved 1 minute off my time from Disney.
Last Week's Reflection
Well, it is cold and rainy ... freezing rain actually and I'm about to go run a 5K with my Pastor. I might be hating on her a little later.
Back in November I talked her into running with me and we trained three days a week sometimes four up until my first 5K in January. After that, I had a back injury and she had a foot stress fracture. Even though we have both mended, we haven't been able to do more training because of the extreme cold and weather conditions.
Down 1.2 pounds from last week. Finally a loss after 2 straight weeks of holding steady. Down 8.2 pounds since Day 1.
Improved. The mirror didn’t scare me as much this week.
I finished the 1st week of round 2 of 21 Day Fix. I also signed up for my first ever 5k. I will begin…
So on my quest to get healthy and back in shape I mad a deal with myself. I would get on the scale and face the music, if I ate great or terrible, the good the bad a d the ugly. I know some people do better if they don't weigh themselves but I tried that once and put on about 7lbs. without realizing it. So earlier this week I posted about working out when your sick. I have had a miserable cold this week just exhausted, coughing conjested, just feeling like crap. Needless to say I did not…Continue
Since I never really gave a backstory of who I am on here I thought a survey would be a fun way to introduce myself. Feel free to copy and paste and answer for yourself :-)

I'm in the 10th day and while I have not been perfect, I have done very well. In the last two days, I did catch myself with a desire for something crunchy. One night, I dipped into the plantain chips ... which was a better choice than potato chips or some other snack. Then yesterday in the late afternoon at work .... and it was a long day by the way .... I grabbed a pack of sample graham crackers that we had just gotten in from a vendor. Again, while not a bad choice whatsoever, just not…Continue
