14 pounds down!!!

I have lost a total of 14 pounds since December 27th when I started exercising! Woohoo! πŸ™‚

3 pounds in the last week!

I’m on week 5 of the couch25k program. Today was Day1 with jogging intervals of 5 minutes each. The 2nd day will be intervals of 8 minutes. Then the 3rd day will be 20 minutes. WHAT THE?????? From 5 to 8 to 20? Did someone Β with a math disability figure this one??? You’re telling me I have to go from 5 to 8 to 20? All I can say is-I’ll try! πŸ™‚

Tonight I was going to start my little strength training exercises at home, but I’m thinking I’ll start tomorrow. When I feel better. πŸ™‚


Plankie, plankie, plankie

I did another one today and held it for 25 seconds. Sh, sh, sh, shaking!!!! πŸ™‚

Today was also my Day 2 of Week 4 of C25K. It went well!!! Yes, I can jog for 5 minutes now without stopping!! YEA!!!! πŸ™‚

Now I’m resting on the couch for the rest of the night. πŸ™‚

Plank a day

Yep. You read it right. I’m joining the #plankaday challenge on twitter. I can do this. Did one today and held it for-don’t faint-15 WHOLE seconds!!!! πŸ™‚

And my body was shaking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! πŸ™‚

This challenge is just a fun one to hold myself accountable for “planking”. I’ll do 1 plank a day (or more if I feel like it), and then tweet about it under the hashtag #plankaday.

You can join up, too. We’ll see how long it takes me to work up to 30 seconds and then 1 minute (I must be feeling pretty ambitious). πŸ™‚

Correct planking.

Do planks ever get easy?????


shaking, trembling, shaking

all over

never stopping





from the

weight of it all


LOL! Just a little poetry for you on this Wednesday night. πŸ™‚

I beat my personal record and am so proud of it!



What’s your best time?


Week 4-Day 1 C25K

Today was the 1st day of week 4 for Couch25k, and it was great!!!! The jogging intervals consisted of 3 minutes, 90 seconds, and 2 5 minute ones.

I DID IT!!!!! DID YOU HEAR ME??? I DID IT!!!! πŸ™‚

Of course, I trained at my school track instead of where I live, so it was a flat surface and no inclines/hills! Much easier!! I am REALLY looking forward to day 2. I mean, I am pumped!!!! πŸ™‚ So here’s some more inspiration. And forgive me if I ever post an image that I have already posted. I am 41. And a teacher. Which means double forgetting! πŸ™‚

Β This will be my motto!!!! Nothing will stop me! πŸ™‚

And you shouldn’t let anything stop you either.

10 pounds down and 25 to go

Woohoo!!!! I have lost 10 pounds in 25 days! Just over 3 weeks! YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m super excited and feel lots better than I have in a long time. I did eat more this weekend than I planned because I was at a conference, and well, you know how food tastes SO GOOD away from home. πŸ™‚

But, I did 2 miles on the treadmill in the hotel fitness center Friday night after our dinner. And when I got home this evening I did 2 miles on the stationary bicycle. Tomorrow is going to be a super busy day (car/deer accident stuff after school, legislative contact meeting, and BUNCO!), so tomorrow will probably be my day off for this upcoming week.

So my official weight now is…..drumroll please…… 153 pounds!

But, that means I still have about 25 or more to go. O.M.G. Can I do it? You bet I can! πŸ™‚

I so love being warm

After school today I just couldn’t bring myself to train outside. It was in the 40s, but felt sooooo much colder. So I did my training inside the junior college on the inside track around the basketball court. It was so toasty and warm!!!

So instead of feeling like this:

I felt like this:

It was oh so glorious! πŸ™‚ I did my day 2-week3 of the c25k program. I kept walking after I finished so it would be a total of 2 miles for the day. Now let’s see if I can do my itty bitty strength training exercises!
