Weigh Me Wednesday

It's that time of the week again...

It's a tough road

When the hubs is off of work we tend to go for our run at night. That was the case Monday night and it was fabulous. There could be two reasons behind it...

1) It was night and a lot cooler without the sun beating down on us.
2) I was trying a new route, guesstimating how far we'd gone. Not knowing the distance may have pushed me faster?

Weigh Me Wednesday

I don't remember the last time I actually posted Weigh Me Wednesday, but can I say.... I AM BACK!!!!! I apparently got over my funk, thankfully with my hubby's help, and seem to be moving back in the right direction! This was an AWESOME week.

So, the hubs and I started walking together after lunch, right? Then he says "I wonder if it's even making a difference?" I told him to give it some time. He said "No, I mean, am I overdoing it on the calories so much that walking isn't going to cut it?" Well I don't know? I count my own calories and so should he.

Finding my Mojo

As you know I've been down in the dumps, today was weigh in day, but you can see there's no post. I'm not too far off from my last weigh in I don't think. But I've just lost that motivation I had...

I tell you what

Things just haven't been going good for me lately. I don't know what the problem is, why it started, but I wish it'd leave. I took some reason really, just because. So tonight the hubby and I tried to get out. I ran w/ the kids and the stroller and he rode his bike, in circles around us.

I barely got through the first mile and my freakin' muscle started hurting in my shin again. >:|

So I called it a night as I was gimping trying to get home safely. But I managed a mile and a half in 22 minutes...14 minute avg pace. New record for me. So once we got home my hubby blew the dust of the rower and I attempted 4 sets of 5 minutes. I barely made it through 3 sets. I averaged 2:45 splits, which is okay just not where I've been in the past. I still have a long road ahead of me, but the silver lining is that I've lost a lot of my "gut" and it was very very apparent when I rowed. I didn't have to spread my knees as far apart when was very nice. So I know my hard work in the past has paid off, I just need to find my motivation again. I also need to work on my tendons/muscles so that when I jog I don't get those fabulous pains. I know it all comes with time, I just wish I could go for a nice run and come home feeling great and not limp the next day.

Food wise, I'm terribly off track. I haven't logged my food for 3 days now and yesterday I only ate twice. TERRIBLE. I know better, I just don't know what got into me. So I'm moving on, going to be logging my food again, and watching what I'm eating, instead of just putting what ever is in front of me in my mouth. I can do this, I know I can...I just have to.

Hot Time In The City

Last night I went for a nice 3 mile 100* heat. 48 minutes after we started, we returned home. I was sooooo sweaty. I was proud, I was happy, I was disgusting to smell or touch and I was tired. But mostly I couldn't help but smile at myself. Have you ever had a moment like that? I was smiling over my accomplishment so much that I decided to try and take a self portrait, just for the sake of sharing my grin.

I'm still here...

I'm here. I haven't been posting much because there isn't much to post about I suppose. The weather still sucks, I'm still eating decent, and well my exercise has slacked a smidge, but my legs are feeling better for it. And with all the miscellaneous house chores being attended to, I'm still sweating my butt off in this heat. But I'll be back on the horse tonight...later tonight. They're calling for a high of 102* with a heat index of 116*. So as you understand with two little ones in tow, I have to take precautions to make sure all three of us are safe outside. And just for's what I saw last night at 8:20pm. :(
