Hi Sparkers: Full disclosure here - my weight is up, and it's not where it is stated but I keep it there because I'm headed back and it reminds me of what is very possible.

I have an intensive weekend coming up - no, I wouldn't say I'm ready for it, so I will walk as much as I need to but today's workout was good. The race is called the Aching Quad and they run a 5K Friday night, a 1 mile at 7 the next morning, followed by a 2 mile race at 8:30 and then another 5K that night. Today's workout, I walked for 5:30 minutes, then moved continuously for 25 minutes, walked 2 minutes, ran a mile, walked 2 minutes, then ran the remaining equivalent of 3.2 (minus warm-up and cool down) and then walked home. The time I had is better than any of the times that I had 10 lbs lighter, so something good is happening with my fitness. I really look forward to running with all the extra weight gone!

I have an urge to vent about the new mobile app, but I know they want you to buy their tracker and that would work well with this new application, but that's not happening. I think I'm doing this weight loss without one of those. You still have to do the work whether you have a tracker or not.

Hope your labor day was nice!

    Good work! I don't use a "tracker" either for fitness on a daily basis. I do use my Garmin when I go for a bike ride, hike, or horseback riding because I like to chart the courses with GPS, although there are plenty of programs for phones that do the same thing.

    So proud of you for getting out there! You'll get the weight back off. I know you can.
