A Good Day

Sprinting. Dropping weight. Good metabolism. Fun. Accomplishment. Step Record: 14,699. That sums it up for today. Here are some of my more recent adventures... details to follow soon...

A quick jog around the track at Kent State (1 lap)

The weather broke - temporarily- So I got to go run outside.

A walk around the block with Dad ... saw my cousin while we were out and stopped to chat.

Tonight at Kent State indoor track. That last spike is a FULL SPRINT. It felt great!! No more jogging for me. The feel of running is soooo much better!

A little over a week to go

I have a renewed passion to achieve my goal, but realistically I don't think it will happen. Although I do not feel bad about it. I've done quite well, a few little slip ups here and there but nothing major. I managed to to get to a gym at least 3 times every week. But now.. my renewed energy... I've been to the gym 6 days in a row. And I'm trying to push myself harder while I'm there -- get the most bang for my buck, so to speak. There is just so much going on. I need a good 30 minutes just to keep my fitness stuff updated... like you will notice my exercise log and weight logs are a bit behind.. I'm working on it I promise.

It's late now.. and I must sleep!! The gym calls at 5:30!!

More updates on life coming soon... I promise.

Exciting Puzzle Pieces

Have you been to that point when everything just MAKES SENSE. You have a sense of where you're supposed to be and what you're supposed to be doing. The pieces to lead me to that point have been appearing one by one over the last month and I'm really REALLY excited about it. I am more motivated than ever to make them all true.

I know where I want to live - Summit County, near Akron. I loved it when I lived there before and I was the most "adult-like" and grown up when I was there. I also found a running store that has 5k training!! (in that area)

So my goal is to get a job up there and move there this summer.

(and if you've been keeping up with my posts - I'm starting to lose weight again, and I'm pursuing additional licensure so that I WILL BE able to teach upper level math!!)

Well I need to go to bed.

Happy Presidents' Day!

Happy Day

Today was a great day. The scale was friendly - 210.0 !!! and I had a great workout, a whole 60 minutes on the elliptical. I had a shower to go to and they served fruit and grilled chicken! I did have some cake but it is all accounted for and permissible :)

I have realized I really MUST eat more. I will lose weight better by eating my WHOLE 1800 calories and if that means I need to move my butt even more to get the deficit I want, than that's what it has to be.

Not eating enough is NOT a shortcut. You'd think I'd have learned this by now!!! Ok I'm going to curl up in my nice warm bed and watch a movie... then sleep!! :)


Today also turned out to be a 41 point day (43 is my highest) and I logged 12,164 steps (my best is 13,732) That's by far my best step count for a WEEKEND. YAY!

Tried something New

Today I did an experiment that is very unlike me. I experimented with a recipe and I must admit, it's not bad. There are few tweaks I will make, and I will definitely try again.

Low Fat Potato Soup (my interpretation)
Makes 4 1 cup servings - supposedly
1/2 bag of Ore Ida Shredded Hashbrowns
2 cans of fat free/low salt College Inn Chicken Broth
1 packet of McCormick's Country Gravy (this I will try others next time - a little too spicy for me)

Brown the hashbrowns... add them to chicken broth, cook until potatoes are "squishy" then add the gravy mix. I let it simmer for a bit and then let it set - so the gravy would get thicker.

Surprisingly it really did taste like Potato Soup. :) and here are the nutritional stats for 1 cup:

Calories: 155
Fat: 4g
Saturated Fat: 0
Cholesterol: 0
Sodium: 1010mg (mostly from the gravy mix)
Carbs: 26g
Fiber: 2g
Protein: 5g
