Well I was kind of concerned about how my body would hold up to W7D1 of C25K yesterday. But it turned out better than expected. I turned on my Ipod and started walking the warm up. I felt pretty good. I checked my watch and after 5 minutes ... Read more

I weigh myself first thing every morning just to get an idea of what my weight fluctuations are from one day to the next. If I do not eat well and it shows up on the scales I can't feign ignorance. I usually don't get too bent out of shape by t... Read more

I'm still having internet issues so I'm doing my blog now while my son is sleeping. I don't think I'll get a chance later. In fact, he's starting to stir so this will be short. I had a pretty good week. The weather cooperated and I felt pre... Read more

We had our Terry Fox Run and assembly today. The three kids who spoke were awesome. Takes a lot of courage for a 13 year old to speak in front of 500+ of their peers and all their teachers. The program went well and the other kids were sup... Read more

I'm blogging from school again tonight. I am so tired today that I'm afraid when I go home I'll just crash. Plus, I still have internet issues on and off at home. I overslept this morning and never really caught up all day. I didn't have... Read more

Today my only exercise was riding my bike to work. It was a little tougher than usual because the wind has returned with a vengeance. It took me twice as long to get to work and when I stopped peddling I'd get blown off the road. Not parti... Read more

This week I completed Week 5 of C25K. I wasn't sure it was going to happen. The weather here has been windy, cold and rainy. It totally sucked any momentum I had going right out of me. At first I thought that the beginning of school... Read more

Today I'm going to give you a little update on my C25K progress. I completed W1 and 2 workouts so easily it was kind of scary. I kept expecting something to go wrong. I was anticipating stepping in a pothole or some other unforeseen d... Read more
