January is a Wrap!

Jan 2012 showed me that it's okay to slow down, just keep moving. I may not get there as fast but I'll get there. Looks like another month off running, at least I can walk.

Even without being able to run I managed to log in 109 miles. So glad I came across the announcement for the #fitcrew on twitter. The 10k step a day challenge got me into walking. I use to think walking was boring - why walk when you can run. Well I can't run now so in order to get the steps in I'm walking. This also is helping me to get my #GoTheDist miles in. This years goal is 1200 miles (300 per quarter). January's mileage was 109. AWESOME! Hopefully I can switch back to running soon but until then I'm Walkin.

Restful Day?!?!

I wish I could say I rested today but I didn't. Got up early and did my challenge exercises. Then waited for the husband so we could take our walk. We went 5 miles in an hour and 40 minutes. It was freezing cold out there towards the end I couldn't even wiggle my fingers.

Jumped in a warm bath when I got back in so I could warm up and almost fell asleep in there. After that it was run to the grocery store, prep for dinner , back to the store, start dinner, put a couple of load thru the laundry, clean up after the dog, clean the kitchen and serve dinner. WHOOO! I didn't even want to eat, so I just had rice and beans. Sometimes I get grossed out after cleaning meat that I can't eat it. Felt that way about the turkey wings today, even though I was craving them. Tried to reach 20,000 steps today but I'm tired and don't know if that will happen today.

Will I ever be warm again

Took the walk outside again today it was 25 degrees when I started out. It took an hour and nineteen minutes to walk 5 miles. My fingers were frozen. Had to wait an hour to shower because my fingers weren't moving. I know we're have a "mild" winter so far but I really can't wait for spring. Love me some warm weather.

Decided to head to the Amish market, son's birthday is Monday and since he's not a big fan of cake I wanted to get an apple pie (his favorite). Checked out a couple of store while I was out but I just wasn't in the mood. I I was still cold and wanted to come home and get under the covers. Instead I finished the washing and folded laundry. Sent the husband out for pizza, I really don't want any I just don't feel like cooking. Think I go to bed early tonight, hopefully I'll sleep all night that hasn't been happening lately.

Oh yeah the Fitbit I order YESTERDAY came today. Amazon prime rocks! Now to set it up and not procrastinate like I normally do. LOL

Fabulous Friday

Woke up this morning with a slight headache and made up all kinda of excuses why I shouldn't walk, the wind is high, it's cold, my treadmill is broken, ect. Finally about 6:30 I got the hell out of bed. Did my 100 pushups and squats and put my clothes on for my walk. I bargained with myself that I wouldn't worry about pace just get to 3 miles. But once I got out there and felt the cold I walked as fast as I could so I could finish.

Got back home showered and drove like a bat of the hell to get to physical theraphy on time. Did 10 minute/.57 miles and 4 other exercises then got iced. Nya my therapist is leaving and I'll be see Karen now. Don't know much about her but I did get the name of a new orthopedic from Nya. I'll call next week for a 2 opinion. Nya think's the PF has been hurting too long. Plus I really don't like Dr Cohen. This new ortho specializes in foot & ankle injuries

After PT I went shopping and walked and walked my steps will definately be over 20,000 today. Got my 100 situps done and now challenge day 13 is in the books.

Today was a good day

Didn't sleep very well last night, never do on Wednesday nights. I have the husband home the two night's before and have to get use to sleeping alone again. Luckily Thursday is the the last day of my work week. Decided on cereal for breakfast because it's easy, added a banana and almond milk.

Today was a tough workout day start off doing part of the Let's Get It Done challenge 75 pushups & 75 squats. At lunchtime I decided to take the walk outside. It was beautiful and I pushed through the 3.1 miles in 45 minutes.

Got back to the building and hit the gym for the 30 minute spin class. Afterwards Denise and I knocked out the rest of the challenge 25 pushups, 25 squats and 100 situps. Can you say exhausted. I got back to my desk had something to eat while trying to finish up some work (and keep my eyes open).

The ride home on the commuter bus was horrible. The normal 20 minute ride took an hour and a half. This look like the norm for the evening commuter, I better get use to it. This is what I get for moving further away from the city. On a bright note the husband had dinner waiting for me. I really appreciated that because this could have seriously become a day of no dinner. I'm still logging my food. I no giving up on this, need this to work cause I'm at a lost on how to reach my goal. This extra weight MUST GO!
