Trial Fast

Yesterday I decided to do a "trial" fast from food only, but still drank water and had my coffee in the morning. The first part of the day was easy since I slept in. It didn't get rough until later in the evening after hubby & I's run. Around 10pm I was tired, but couldn't sleep. When 12AM hit my "trail" fast was over and I ate TWO peanut butter & guava sandwiches with 2 cups of fat free milk.  At the time, it was the best pb&j sandwich I

Stopped with counting calories, but continued with running. Started have foot issues due to shoes. Started doing weight training, but wasn't enjoying it due to weight gain. I know muscle weighs more, but the whole mind game isn't fun for me. Continued running and got up to 5 miles non-stop, but at a price. My feet just got worse. So, waiting for the $$ to save up to buy new shoes and give my feet some time to relax and heal up. Thinking I also need to start counting my calories aga

First and for most, I'm so grateful to GOD for helping me. Thanks to HIM, I've consistantly ran 2.5 - 3 miles non stop. Like with most of us, doesn't matter whether you're first starting out, have gotten to where I'm at, or are in the higher mileage groups; WE ALL experience those negative mind battles. Those mental battles you have with yourself when you're hearing one voice telling you "Yeah, sure you've worked hard and you deserve to take a walk break." or "C'mon, just one...

Got new shoes yesterday! Adidas CC Oscillation W. Light weight and decently comfy. I'm up to completeing 2 miles non-stop. But not totally consistant yet. So, far I've successfully completed (2) 2 mile runs non-stop with 5 days apart. Weather is the key! When it's nice and cool outside I can BREATHE better and go far without breaks. Gotta work on my speed though. All in all, I'm happy with my progress.

Gonna start fresh with the whole calorie counting mess on Monday, will go through the week and will NOT recording anything on the weekends. Between kids & hubby, computer time won't happen.

Will continue to do my runs, also during the week. MIGHT do one run during the weekend, but weekends will be mainly for family related stuff.

So far, this past week doing the calorie counting wasn't horrible...just more of a pain remembering to record it. Once or twice I

Yesterday I didn't eat much, just wasn't hungry. Plus, was busy gathering together coupons for my grocery lists, then went and completed the shopping trips. By the time I got home it was time for dinner. While hubby completed his run, I cooked...when he got back I did my run.

My run felt good. Gave myself 22 minutes total. The first half was an easy - normal pace, jogged until I hit 11 minutes left, walked for one minute, completed the remaining at an easy pace.

Between my ankle injury last year, food allergy issues and tracking everything; I just plain got tired and discouraged. Been yo-yoing weight wise, which is normal for me. Glad I didn't gain all the weight back, but not happy that I'm pretty much stuck where I'm at.

Hubby decided to come back to calorie counting, so I figured I'd give it another try too.

Taking the whole running scene in SLOWLY this time. Not gonna plan any thing major until next year. Though it al...

My desire/ energy levels are LOW these days. My body is NOT reacting well to having to do just 8 miles. I completed my first 8 mi long run this past Sunday resulting in the next two days of my pelvic muscles being sore and crampy. Decided to take it easy and skipped my 2 mi run on Tuesday. Defered my 6  mi from Thursday to today. It didn't turn out well. At 1.5 miles into my run my pelvic muscles started hurting again. So I only completed 2.4 out of the 6 I was supposed to do today. I ...
