Five For Fighting

I recently had some sad moments dealing with pants that barely fit and shirts that won’t fit. And, it’s things like that which are a huge slap in the face. I need to do something to make a dent towards … Continue reading

How Did That Happen?

I went for a 5K run before lunch today. I was thinking that it would be too cold – for me! – because it was 35 with a real feel of 30. But, the sun is SO STRONG today that … Continue reading

That Sucked

I went for a run in between breakfast and lunch today. It was a crazy 60 degrees out there!!! I got to the 2.4 mile mark and then I had to walk twice. I covered the whole 3.1 miles in … Continue reading

That was the number on the scale before lunch today. Pretty much the same as last time. But, at least it’s not worse. Still, it’s 19 pounds too many.

Ugh

I went for a 5K run before lunch today. First attempted run in over 3 weeks. It was brutal. All this extra weight probably didn’t help. I got to 2.07 miles before having to break down into a walk. And, … Continue reading

197.4

I got on the scale this morning after breakfast and it read 197.4 pounds. To be candid, I was surprised it did not say 200. That’s what I was expecting – based on how I feel now. I can’t even … Continue reading

Was It Worth It?

For four straight days, starting on Xmas Eve, I pigged out on cookies, cake, brownies and pie – like an out of control lunatic. Completely out of control. The picture of reckless abandon. Thoughtless. It stops today.

Pretty Much As Expected

I went for a 5K run at 10:30 AM today. It was my first run in two weeks. Why? Say…75% crappy weather, 20% depression and 5% been busy. At the 2.25 mile mark, I had to walk a bit. Did … Continue reading

9 Days Is Enough

For the last 9 days, I have been terrible with my food choices. Granted, one-third of it was Thanksgiving/Birthday stuff…and that’s hard. But, the last 6 days have been all about depression and apathy. And, that has to stop. I … Continue reading

Well, That Sucked

I went for a 5K run at 11 AM today. It was sunny – but windy, which made it feel colder than the actual temperature. At the 2.2 mile mark, I caved and had to walk in three instances. Maybe … Continue reading

Nice

I went for a 5K run before lunch today. I was not really in the mood to do it. But, the forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday is for 100% rain. So, that pushed me into it. I labored. But, I … Continue reading

Well, That Was Quick

I was at 195.3 first thing in the morning on the scale today. That’s a gain of 3 pounds in 4 days. That’s what happens when you let yourself go and make bad food choices. It can happen THAT QUICK.

400 In 18

I just realized that I have run 399.9 miles over the last 18 months. That’s roughly 400 miles in 550 days (precisely). Shame it wasn’t more. But, it also could have been a lot less.
