I did a quick run yesterday. I find that I can run for a while, feel the overwhelming need to walk, then after I walk, I'm ready to run again...too bad it's always at the end! Does this happen to anybody else? I'm planning to do a longe... Read more

Yesterday I ran in the rain! I felt SO badass! It was tough, but I was really pleased with myself when I finished. I must have looked ridiculous because the only rain jacket I have is a men's XXL! It was on sale years ago and my mother bough... Read more

After a two day technology break, I am sitting down on this rainy Tuesday morning. The weather makes it really difficult to train, but I think I'll squeeze in a run this afternoon. Hopefully it stops raining! I was really beating myself u... Read more
5K Training--Day 4
Thursday, March 31, 2011      1 comments

I woke up early this morning to go running, but my left hip was really hurting me. I put on my workout clothes and headed outside, but decided to walk the entire route instead of running parts of it. I'm frustrated by this pain, but I didn't w... Read more
5K Training--Day 3
Tuesday, March 29, 2011      1 comments

I took yesterday off. I thought that for the first week a 2-on, 1-off plan would be good. I'm hoping to go 3-on, 1-off and maybe even get up to a 4-on plan. Today's run was okay. I felt stronger toward the end than I had in the past, b... Read more
5K Training: Day 2

I am crazy sore today, but I ran anyway. I didn't want to push too hard, so I did exactly what I did on Day 1. Some parts were easier, some were harder. Running outside is SO different from running on a treadmill because of the wind (especial... Read more

I did my Tae Bo Billy Blanks DVD today. It was SO HARD!!! It felt great, even though I had to modify a few parts. They move so fast! The workout lasted 50 minutes and when I entered it into the fitness tracker, it said I burned 854 cal... Read more

Note to Self: Don't Weigh In During Period
Sunday, March 13, 2011      1 comments

For the sake of my sanity, I've decided not to weigh myself during my period. It's just too depressing and disheartening. I know that I tend to gain at least 5 pounds for the duration, so I think I need to wait until it's all over before weighi... Read more
Thinking About My Goals
Thursday, March 10, 2011      0 comments

I keep getting inspired by the idea of tracking weight loss 10% at a time. I go back to that article once in a while and today it has left me thinking about my goals and my commitment to them. I've done some additional research online and I ca... Read more

Although I have managed to eat very healthfully today, my food tracker has already gone over my fat requirements for the day...and I haven't even entered in dinner!!! I generally only track foods when I am sitting at a computer, so most days do... Read more
Nutritional Requirements vs. Weight Loss
Friday, March 04, 2011      2 comments

As a vegan (well, almost as I eat eggs once in a while), there are certain nutritional requirements that I need. Many of them are in calorie-dense foods like nuts, legumes, and grains. I try to limit my caloric intake, but I worry about gettin... Read more
Manifesting a Better Reality
Saturday, February 26, 2011      0 comments

I believe that we are capable of shaping our own worlds if we choose to open our minds and hearts. I didn't always believe this, but lately I've found it to be very true. In the past few years, I've spent a lot of time reflecting on my life an... Read more
