Craft Show

No workout this morning. We have a craft show at the Methodist Church. I'm going to try to hit the treadmill later tonight if we don't end up having a family night.


Day 2

Daily stats:
Workout type: Treadmill walk/jog/incline
Route: Workout room
Distance: N/A
Time: 30 minutes
Wii Fit plus routine: Yoga for stretching, and strength training
Calories burned:313
Temperature: 52 degrees
Challenge for the day: Remembering the promise

Thoughts: Normally I have morning mass on Fridays with the school kids. They're off today so I am too! I got on the treadmill about 10:00. Popped a movie into the DVD player and spent a pleasant 30 minutes walking, jogging, lifting weights, and doing incline work. Wii Tillie says my weight is up today so I need to watch the food intake, but for now I am concentrating on being consistent in working out.


Day 1 of Project Syrup Run

Yep, I've changed the name of my blog. I am changing my focus from weight loss (although I still plan to lose weight) to training for the Shepherd Maple Syrup run. I ran this race in 2007 and I would like to run it again in April. If I start now, I should be able to get into fairly decent shape by then. Since this is Thursday, my workout is in the morning.

Daily stats:
Workout type: walk/jog
Route: Deadend/east edge of cornfield/back
Distance: 1 3/4 miles
Time: 31 minutes
Wii Fit plus routine: Yoga for stretching, and strength training
Calories burned:320
Temperature: 47 degrees
Challenge for the day: Remembering the promise

Thoughts: I got out on the road at 9:15 am. I am really out of shape. My focus is to keep my HRM at 121 BPM. My short term goal is to get out there at least 6 days a week.


Lovely day!

Okay, so I'm minding my own business, sleeping peacefully, and the boom box in our spare bedroom suddenly starts blaring. It's not a radio alarm. There is no reason that it should have turned on. I never ever use this boom box. Spooky. So, I couldn't go back to sleep. I got up and got my tush out for an early morning walk. My HRM was hinky, but it was a different one that I haven't used in a while.



Coasting coasting

Good morning,
I know that I have been awol for quite a while. Life has been insanely busy and I really still haven't adjusted to being home. I've kind of been holding my own, trying to get my head together. Food hasn't been bad, but sheesh, when you get out of the exercise habit, it's very hard to get back in. I've worked out here and there, but what I need to do is get a schedule. I used to just be able to get up in the morning and get it over with, but it's not possible to do that now. I am a creature of habit so I have to make a schedule and make it a habit to follow it.

I've been watching Biggest Loser. Seems like every season they have to pick one person to gang up on - just to keep the drama going. Tracey is excellent in that role. She is so maddeningly passive agressive.

Last summer I found out that I have cataracts. I will have to get those taken care of and then lately I have been having symptoms of carpal tunnel in my left hand. Not a good situation for a church organist. Good grief, when did I get old???

Still working on day 1

I am still working on day 1 in the "100 Days of Wweight Loss" book - which means it will end up being more than 100 days. My struggle lately has been getting exercise in. Not that I don't have time, but I can't do it first thing in the morning which has always been my thing. Tonight I decided to change it up and go out in the evening. Let me tell you, evening is much harder. I felt aches and pains that I never had in the morning. So I took it a bit easier. I needed to get that one evening workout in so I couldn't use missing morning exercise as an excuse any more.
