I'm a little obsessed!

Saturday, August 25, 2012

I'm a nature girl.  Love walking the trails viewing the color wild flowers, take joy in watching the deer and bunnies appear on the trails.  I loved running in Maui, hiking in Colorado..... So I'm traveling to AZ with my daughter for her soccer showcase.  Guess what there is a 5K run just 21 minutes away!  I'll need to see this Grasshopper bridge and we will run through a forest preserve. 

To celebrate my 13.2 lb loss I treated myself to a running outfit.

Over the HuMp!

Saturday, August 25, 2012

Ever stick with something, but no get the result you wanted?  Disappointed?

Well, that seems to be the pattern with losing weight for me.  I will turn my wheels, stay focus but maybe I'm not patient enough? 

That was me in August.  I continued my workout plan and tracked my WW pts to a T!  I was disappointed that the pounds didn't come off sooner.  I would get up at 5am in morning to workout, finish laundry, prepare childrens' breakfasts, lunch and plan ahead for dinner.  (All very healthy, not processed foods. ) Quickly get ready for work and run out the door, literally!  Is it worth it?  YES! 3 weeks later, I have seen the results!  On the scale, on the pavement and yes, my attitude! ********* Made my 5% and 13.5 LB gone away!!!!*******

So fellow, WW peeps keep on doing the right things and eventually it will pay off!
Slow and steady NOT fast freddy!

Stay tuned I'm going to post my 15k Hot Chocolate Chicago plan!!

Who wants to RUN for CHOCOLATE?

Sunday, August 19, 2012

I strapped on my Nike+ monitor watchband and my Iphone Runmeter and I off I went running!  What got me fired up again?  I just decided to  sign up for Chicago's 15K Hot Chocolate Race! 

So today, I ran 2.5 with speed as my goal 8:40 a mile and 2 miles with 10:58 per mile!  I haven't seen a 9 minute mile since 2 years ago before my foot surgery!

BTW: who wouldn't want to race with CHOCOLATE and a CUTE HOODIE!

I created a fundraising page for Ronald McDonald House, when your little one is sick no parent should have to worry about a place to stay!  If you feel a nudge to donate, please do so here.

Congrats on the WL. I wear it on my bra; however, I tried it on my waist and it slipped off a couple of times. I believe I read another member that experienced the same. Needless to say, it's back on the bra.

10 LBS! Very happy - minus LOST ACTIVE LINK

Saturday, August 18, 2012

Ok, I must admit, I was really irritated over a number of things. I followed my plan perfectly, exercised tons, lost active link and only lost .8.  So, re-evaluated and decided to change a  few things, decreased exercise, who cares what active link thinks!, not to be so strict on my points and have more fun! 

I know it was just going to take time for my body to adjust but I juggled many hats just to workout before work, after work..... So I have to live with my schedule, so I loosened up on life!

Well, I have lost 10.6 lbs in the month.  My goal was 8lbs but 10 was stretch goal!  I did it with the WW and the many tools.  THANK YOU!!

Status: on active link......Emailed WW Customer Service, called WW home office. Floor mgr. had no idea what Active Link was and couldn't replace it. He did give me a free 43.00 month. No worries... I don't think I'm going to get active link again. How many gadgets can a girl have!? I know I'm being active with the running. I'll miss the little challenges with myself and other ww's!

Week 3 .8lb loss and Active Link MIA

Sunday, August 05, 2012

Well, after running 31.5 miles and walking 6 miles last week, hitting 21-25 ACTIVE LINK a day, staying ON plan and motivated, I lost .8 lbs. Needless to say, I do feel thinner but I do feel that my body is a mystery to me!


So, the next day after weigh in I decided to put Active Link on my waist for a new day. Before my new day started at work, AL slipped off my waist band unknowingly. LOST! Gone!


$47.00 down the drain.... yes, I'm including internet and tax! I caution all of you starting AL, there is no ribbing on the AL, no clip for security. I can't justify replacing it, only to happen again. I will go back to my NIKE+ and will inform Weight Watchers of this flaw! I don't expect to receive a call from Corporate. But I would like a replacement or discount. I only had been married to it for 14 days!

That stinks... I am always afraid of losing mine too. And you have been a front runner in the ActiveLink Challenge.

Week 2 and ACTIVELINK day 2= 22pts

Monday, July 30, 2012

I think I like ACTIVE LINK. 

Day 2 started with laundry, few trips up and down stairs, I went out for my 3 mile run.  Worked.  Clean house for 1.5 hours. Ran for 4.5 miles.  Took dogs for a nightly walk for .5miles. 

= 22 activity points  Goal is 12 pts.  8 miles for the day.

My review is that is best to do your big activity/exercise/workout in the morning.  I didn't like playing catch up the day before.  I would rather get a good chunk of AP.
