Lessons in Food Journaling, The Runners Guide to Life and C25K

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I had forgotten how quickly C25K ramps up the running in the 6th week. W6D1 in the books and ran 18 out of the 20 minutes and was totally excited. Part of the inspiration I’m sure, was finishing reading last night The Runner’s Guide to the Meaning of Life by Amby Burfoot, winner of the 1968 Boston Marathon. Being only in W6 was a bit embarrassed to have picked up this book, like I was calling myself a

Flexible to Frustrated to Fuming to Fixated With Fingers Crossed

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Flexible: Yesterday morning when I was ready to head out on my run, discovered the battery on my phone was dead. The C25K Program I use is an app (imagine that) which tells me when to walk, run, stretch etc. Now I suppose I could have written the intervals down on my hand and used my watch, however that has not always been a very safe choice for me. Being a bit uncoordinated, I’ve found it works best

Discombobulated, Testing My Committment

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With a hair appointment later this morning I knew I had to get out for my W5D3 of Couch to 5K before I left and walked into my office to find my iPhone battery completely dead. OK change of plans. I use the program on my phone for my run. Change of plans, when leaving my hair appointment, since I will be at the beach, will do my run right after my appointment. Drat, will making freshly blow dried straight hair get

Getting Things Done, C25K

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Day 2 of office organizing done and showing some real progress. I can walk in the door of my office without fear of tripping over boxes. I can see 95% of all the floor space and desk is 50% cleared off. Getting behind on everything else but project organize is going well. Committed last night to giving up Incredimail and going with Outlook : ( Not nearly as much fun, yet ever so much more efficient. Intending to finish all

Franklin Covey -The 5 Choices, Getting Things Done, The 1 Thing, Couch to 5K and Getting Organized

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spent most of the weekend in my Team Beachbody Franklin Covey training on The 5 Choices and it reminded me of why continual personal development is so critical to our success. When I discovered The 1 Thing concept, I made a number of changes in my life which have almost become habit. Studying the 5 Choices reminded me how reaching success involves more than just doing the 3 most important things first each day. There needs

Walking With Kevin, Shaping My Future and Eating Healthy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Where I used to totally exempt myself from working out on the weekends, now I actually almost look forward to it. After just 1 weekend the new tradition is Kevin goes with me on Saturday and Sundays. He even asked first last night, do you want to go walking in the morning? Yeah. Up to 26 minutes today, 27 minutes tomorrow and Monday is Week 3 Day 1 of Couch to 5 K where the run intervals are

9 Days and Counting, Mini-Meltdown

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today marked 9 days in a row working out which I’m pretty sure is a lifetime record for me. No matter how consistent I have been, the weekends have been left out for some reason. The 1st Team Beachbody Program I ever completed long ago was Kathy Smith, Project You, Type 2 and was 90 days long. Kevin and I both did the whole program from beginning to end and even that was only 6 days a week. I have completely embraced

A Measure of My Committment, Ideal Health and Definition of Determination

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Interested versus committed. An interesting thought. When you’re interested in doing something, you’ll do it when it’s convenient. When you’re committed however, this means you will do it no matter what. Finding myself bouncing a bit between committed and extremely interested. For example, I say I committed to my ideal health, yet I have this little issue with 1 of my eyes I have pretty much been ignoring for a couple of months. Not a big deal, but a person committed to

Walking for my Freedom. Shrink Yourself

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This morning Kevin and I got up really late and to be honest I had decided it was too late to walk (don’t ask) and figured I had walked 1 day of the weekend already and blah, blah, blah. Thank goodness I had asked Kevin to walk with me today, yesterday. He walked into the office ready to go and well what could I do but go? So glad, he inspired me to get out there and go.

Mama Cass, What’t Up? It Never Rains in Southern California, Does It?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So glad I freeze framed how great I felt yesterday when I got home from my C25K. When I woke up this morning, I hesitated for just a moment and then started getting dressed. Imagine my surprise, when I opened the front door and it was raining. Not the typical occasional little drizzle I like to call rain. Real rain with big drops, making noise and all the ground was wet. I stood there for a few
