Wow. It’s been a while. Shame on me! Still going strong. I’m on a long path. It’s taken me a while to be able to admit that and I *think* I’m OK with it… I don’t have much of a choice. I can do things the quick and unhealthy way, or I can do them my way. […]
Food check in
What a week. And it’s only Wednesday! Ha! Lower carb has been going OK…. I’ve lost a couple of lbs, but to be frank – I had gained a few because we’ve been slacking on the weekends a little more than I’d like to admit. So…. You know what our lunches look like for this […]
It seems like no matter what I do, things are going MUCH slower than I’d like them to go, so I’m switching things up for a while. I know that everything takes time, but c’mon! For the next few weeks, I’m going to try to go a bit lower carb than I have been in […]
Is it me, or has this week gone kind of fast? Now that I’ve said that though, today will creep by. I’m taking a quick break to get some thoughts down. We FINALLY started following Jamie Eason’s plan. One thing I loved about working with a trainer was that I was able to just get […]
We made it! Yay! Slept in this morning, but today I’m sitting on my trusty ball. Also did an at home ab work out this morning. Not the same as going to the gym itself, but I really need to lay off a little I think. (don’t want to, but need to) My injuries are […]
Cardio vs Lifting … Why the hell do I do both?
If I had my choice between cardio and lifting…… No brainer…. It’s lifting every single time. I really hate cardio. Which seems silly, since I have completed 9 half marathons, a handful of 10K’s and 5K’s and have 9 or 10 more half marathons scheduled and paid for this year already. So why do I do both? […]
Progress. Forward is good!
Even if we’re taking baby steps….. On Jan 3, Brandon and I took note of my body comp. We did it again this morning. (cries! My last day with him!) Here are my results between Jan 3, 2014 and Feb 26, 2014: Weight: -2 lbs Body Fat: -1.1% Arm: -.5 inches Chest: -.75 inches Waist: -.75 inches Hips: […]
It’s a marathon, not a sprint
I am in my head so much lately, and that’s not a good thing. I KNOW that what I’m doing is going to take time. I realize that what I’ve done to my body over the years happened over the years. It won’t change over night. I KNOW this. But I find myself getting so upset […]
TGIF! Can’t believe we made it through Hump Day. Phew! 🙂 I was kinda low on calories today but I think it’s fine because I only made it to the gym once. Not gonna stress about it. I am down 1.1 lbs though. WOOT! I do not like to focus on that number, but I will […]
Here’s a working plan for my next several weeks. I’ve done a really great job of building muscle, leaning out some and my endurance is great now for running my half marathons. My goals are not (really) weight related. I mean, would I like to be a certain weight? I’d be lying if I said […]
