Ugh. I haven't really touched my computer in a week. Sorry. Well, this week I'm a bit baffled. I haven't changed my weight at all and I've been eating right and working out 5 times a week. I'm hoping that it will pay off by the next weigh in.

I'm training for the local 5K as I mentioned last time and I'm LOVING it. I LOVE the way I'm feeling. I actually WANT to go to the gym. Now, that's just crazy talk, right there. Anyhow, I'm doing The Couch to 5K program where you are gradually worked up to running it. Due to the fact that I'm a bit more than your average couch potato, I'm doing it 5 days a week instead of the 3 day a week schedule. Not overdoing it at all, my body is responding really well.

Here's hoping that next week is better. Thanks all.

Not good, and good at the same time! I gained 1 pound (215 total right now). I pigged out during March. We had family here, mine & Nathan's b-day, Spring break, etc. It was hard to control myself.

Well, I'm back in the saddle again. I have a goal in mind and I am excited. I'm planning to run the local Murray City 5K on the 4th of July. This has been great for me. I've been running almost 2 weeks now and LOVE it. I never thought I'd like it. Let me re-phrase that...running is kind of ick really for me, but I LOVE the way I feel after. I don't get a good burn like that doing anything running it is. I'm going to make it a goal to lose 5 pounds this month. I will also be re-registering for my nutritional program at the hospital. You can take it as many times as you want & it's cheaper than joining weight watchers for me.

I really like having that accountability and "food therapy" if you will with her. For anyone wanting good information about diet and food habits, she highly recommends the book "Intuitive Eating"

I feel bad dragging y'all along on here b/c I've not done very good, but please hang on...I'm going to need it! Thanks! Now, off to get running!
