It Ain’t Easy Bein’ Green

Good news, I didn’t eat more than a few more of those god awful chips. I took them home and gave them to the kids (who loved them, go figure! Can’t get them to eat onions IN anything but Maui Onion potato chips which taste horrible, oh they gobble those right up!) One bag of [...]

Down the Rabbit Hole

A.M. weigh in: 168.6
I didn’t eat anything else last night before bed. Mostly because I was just too lazy to get up and get anything. Hey, whatever it takes right? Gotta use our strengths!
However, today is shameful. And I feel it. I did get up and do 47 minutes on the elliptical (I’m thinking the [...]

I Hate It When You’re Right

A.M. weigh in: 169.4
Upon reflecting, I would guess there has been more snacking during the day than I’m probably copping to, at least consciously. Especially at night. It’s like I do great during the day (or pretty OK) and then at night, I just get a bit hungry. And next thing I know, I’ve eaten [...]

A call for HELP!

I am at a loss. I need to redesign my diet. I have no idea where to start. What I’ve been doing doesn’t seem to be working for me. I’ve done vegetarian, Atkins (which is like anti-vegetarian!), clean-eating that eliminates gluten, dairy, caffeine, etc… and let’s not even get started on all the crazy fad [...]

The Pillsbury Doughboy called

A.M. weigh-in: 170.4
I have been running or working out everyday (except Friday). I have not eaten an entire pizza, a dozen doughnuts, or a carton of Ben and Jerry’s. Not a single god-damn Twinkie. I should get a medal! OK, so I haven’t been perfect on plan. There have been Junior Mints (they were frozen. [...]

I gotta be quick about this

Yesterday = fiasco
Let’s just say Jack in the Box, Taco Bell and Doritos all made an appearance. And I felt it BIG TIME. I was uncomfortable and had a hard time sleeping last night. My stomach felt distended and I just felt bloated. Even my hand feel fat. I didn’t even weigh in this morning. [...]

Now I’m worried

A.M. weigh-in: 165.0 (I do not get it!)
My 16 yr old told me they had to switch summer school classrooms yesterday. Because one of the students is being tested for swine flu. There are multiple cases and a couple of deaths in our area from it. I came home from dropping Jason at school and [...]

Hell’s Kitchen, Baby!!

A.M. weigh-in: 164.0 (hmmm… maybe those Popchips weren’t so great afterall!)
This morning was my 2 mile run. I did it in 28 minutes, so 14 minute miles. Hey, I’m already showing an improvement! Next run is Thursday, 2.5 miles. Distance is increasing quickly. Yikes!
Today just started off poorly. My normal routine is the alarm goes [...]

It’s past lights out!

I was supposed to have lights out 42 minutes ago so this is super quick.
A.M. weigh-in: 163.6
Today was a non-run day, so 50 minutes on the elliptical. Quads are sore but otherwise good. Tomorrow is a 2 miler. Just a half-mile further. Then Thurday it bumps up to 3 miles and by the weekend it’s [...]

Marathon Training, Day One

A.M. weigh in: 164.0
I did my first run today: 1.5 miles in 22 minutes. That approx. 14 min 30 sec miles. Not exactly breaking any landspeed records there. But totally better than my average of 17.5 minute miles when I ran my 5K back in December. So that’s actually an improvement. Scary, huh!
I created a [...]
