Preparation is 9/10ths of the law.
I was able to hit all three goals again yesterday (Journal, Blog, and a whopping 68 ounces of water). I also did double duty at the gym. Sounds perfect, right? Not so much. When I came home from the gym in the afternoon I was so hungry that I was ready to throw in the towel and get take out because I was tired, starving, and weak. I now realize that I am going to have to remain prepared with healthy food if I am going to remain…Continue
And it really wasn't even THAT bad. I mean I felt the urge later in the day to just throw in the towel but then I asked myself why. Why would I throw in the towel? I had a fairly easy morning and afternoon. Went to the gym and slowly worked my way through my old routine. One slow mile on the treadmill and very light weight on the machines. I wanted to do more, but I know better. I need to start slow so I don't get injured or overwhelmed. Or discouraged.
I hit all three…Continue
I am so tired of starting over every single day. I never get anywhere by doing that. That is why today is my LAST first day. Because my bad habits have taken over my life I am committing to three back to basic techniques that I know work to build the foundation I need to get back on track:
(1) Journal every thing every day ~ SIGH
(2) Blog every day ~ I am not that busy that I can't sit down for ten minutes at some point during the day
(3) Drink at least one…Continue
On track for the most part. I started c25k on Monday. It's changed since the last time I did it. It's only three days a week instead of 4. And it's 8 weeks instead of nine. But I did day 2 of week one this morning tomorrow is day 3. Since I was expecting 4 days of running I'm debating calling the 4th day free for all zombie run day. Maybe use my zombie run app and do 30 minutes of that and run as much as I can. Well see how ambitious I get. Also started calorie counting again. It's a little…Continue
So June and July were not the months I'd hoped. I want to laugh because I realized I wrote the same thing about June, and here goes a whole other month and I still haven't gotten it together.
Surprisingly, I've been losing weight. I know why, but I am still surprised because I haven't been meeting my specific goals for how to do food and exercise. But what has happened, is that I haven't been a sugar fiend. I actually have left dessert items alone most of the month, and like…Continue
Not a whole lot to report here. I'm still truckin' along. I didn't make it to my WW meeting this week because I had my dad, sister, and her 4 kids in town all last week and they were just leaving on the day of my meeting. I HAD to make it to the grocery store because with that many people in one house, we couldn't keep stocked. While I had lots of indulgences while they were here, I still stayed on track pretty well with my meals. Even though I didn't go to my meeting, I weighed at home at…Continue
It's been a little while. I've been working my ass off then I got lazy (well deserved). I completed my triathlon last Sunday. The run was about what I expected and took me the exact time that I planned. The bike ride was rough. The hills sucked and doing it after running three miles was hard. The bike ride took longer than I planned. The swim wasn't hard the worst part was getting my breathing regulated enough so it was in a pattern instead of panting. I passed like 4 people in the pool. I…Continue
