    Ran/walked 8 miles this evening when it was starting to cool down into the lower 80's. Just a couple more training runs to go for my upcoming half marathon. Not that I'm counting down the days or anything. (yeah, right!)

    I met with the trainer on Tuesday, I've been doing more of my own plan rather than their plan but I have still lost 9 lbs and 2% body fat in 4 weeks. I'm really happy with that and will be adding more of their plan over the next 4 weeks to see how much better I can do.

    Wow. You guys are really bust'n a move with all the exercise! Lik'n it. Hoot.
    It's rainy here again today, so no walky for me. Been doing stairs instead of the elevator tho. So that counts.

    Food is on target so far this week. No alcohol too! Seems to be heading in the right direction. Super stressful at work today. Could really use that walk. (more stairs). Mentally feeling a little off my game today. Not enough sleep. I also have my little space heater on here in my office at work. WTF. It's only 50 outside, enough already with the AC.. My nose is dripping it's so cold!!!! Brrr. Leaving early to get under the covers this evening. Can't wait.

    Today was a 2-hr fun exercise session playing xBox kinnect games remotely with my sister. We're so competitive with each other. She usually wins more often than I do, but tonight I pretty much whooped her butt. Yeehaw!

    Does anyone else have a miserable relationship with an ex? Does every exchange have to be an issue?Keep in mind our kiddo is a teenager and this is Memorial day weekend.. No wonder I gained 50 pounds. Errrr..
    Anyway, I'm still doing good this week and looking forward to the weekend!

    My plan to do a short run today turned into an unplanned rest day. Too hot and windy. I'm going to try for a long run tomorrow morning while it's a relatively cool mid to upper 70's out.

    I got my 150 minutes in! I introduced a little bit of interval running this week, too, and surprised myself with how well I did and how much I enjoyed it! Feeling good about everything, to be honest. Proud of all y'all! =)

    I got in 9 miles of (some)running/(mostly)walking this morning. It was hot, humid, and windy. And I did terrible. Blah!

    Think I'll go shopping. Maybe that'll cheer me up. I don't normally like clothes shopping, but I received my JCP online order yesterday and all the medium size shirts and shorts are too big, so I need to return/exchange them. Yay!

    Oops, overslept this morning. I guess I'll have to do a little dancing to get my steps in later :smiley:

    5/26-walked my head off loading the camper. And rode with the kiddos on bikes.
    5/27- youngest came down with a bug, so I drug him around all day on the tandem bike (which is me hauling 100 extra pounds behind me as his pedaling doesn't do much.)
    5/28- more of yesterday
    5/29- Not much. I think I was fighting his cold. I took a nap when we got home. And went to bed early.

    I need to strength train today. Still feeling puny. Still no cold symptoms which is good. I do want to go back to bed though.

    Is it June yet? Ugh...I don't mean to be a debbie downer, but I have been so wishy washy lately with my eating/exercise. I do great during the week, and then make excuses for myself on the weekends. I lose weight and then gain it due to poor choices. Top it off, I got my IUD swapped out on Friday and I have felt bloated, crampy, and icky all weekend.

    I HAVE to get my head in the game. I'm gonna try journaling again to help get a proper mindset. I've made great progress from when I started in February...I refuse to see it go down the drain now.

    I did my Level One 30 Day Shred 11 times in May or about 3x a week which was my goal. Yay! I started out using 2 lb weights and will work my way up through 3 lb weights and finally get back to the 5 lb weights I was using last time I was up to speed. I figure I can add the weight gradually as I get back in shape because I intend to keep this up for the long haul.
