How many miles do you run at a time?
Actually, Lola, I pay more attention to time spent rather than miles. If I were to guess, I'd say I run between 3 to 4 miles.

My objective is X mins of cardio, depending on what day it is, what type of cardio I'm going for, etc., and I shoot for 35-45 mins of cardio on run days.

It's Saturday morning. Having coffee, then plan to do some cardio before I take a shower and hit the road again for PA.

Had a great workout last night at the gym. I chatted with friends for about a half hour, particularly the one who just returned from a victorious competition. SO INSPIRING. Such a great young woman/friend.

Did about 50 mins of strength training (leg presses, BB sumo squats for LB; triceps, traps, biceps and some ab work), and about 25 mins cardio. Felt great. My butt and thighs were already sore last night from the effects of Super Callan yesterday morning, so today will likely be even more noticeable.

How I have missed lifting. Hope to go again Sunday.

Getting home late last night from PA, I planned to sleep in this morning. How my body (and mind) needed this extra rest. Felt wonderful.

So having coffee and allowing myself lazy wake-up time, I came across an article on the internet promoted by Women's Day, entitled "Real Weight Loss Stories." We read these all the time. They can be very inspirational. They draw me in like a magnet. I love reading about others' successes. It's a feel-good thing for me, subconsciously rejoicing along with them in finding what works for THEM (for all of us) in making good choices about our health and fitness and thus TURNING OUR LIVES AROUND.

I decided many of the things I read from this rather long article were worth keeping, repeating, re-reading from time to time. Inspiration can be a wonderful thing. It's a happy positive, worth reflecting on, focusing on, ACTING on.

My favorites....excerpts from the article:



Quote:
I eat every few hours and focus on consuming plenty of lean protein, vegetables, fruit and complex carbs. I try to plan all meals/snacks at least one day in advance whenever possible so that I always have good food on hand and no excuse to grab something unhealthy. I use exercise DVDs and try to get between 30 and 60 minutes of exercise a day, alternating between cardio and resistance-training workouts with plenty of core training. Adding lean muscle to my frame was absolutely essential to changing the shape of my body from pear to hourglass, and the muscle really helps speed up my metabolism.
Quote:
I made slow and steady changes to my attitude, diet and activity levels. Put food in its proper place in your life. Food is for nutrition. Many of us eat when we are stressed, anxious, depressed, angry, lonely or bored. We need to deal with these emotions and our stress in a healthy manner, so that we don't need to use food for this purpose.
Quote:
I began exercising at home by literally just turning on the stereo in my basement and jumping around. I would do whatever I felt like: dance around, jog in place, squats, jumping jacks, weight lifting. I just made sure to break a sweat and have fun for 30 to 40 minutes.

Don’t underestimate the power of exercise! Exercise is a crucial part of my weight-loss and weight-maintenance regimen. I lost 15 pounds by changing my eating habits, then I hit a plateau. Once I incorporated exercise, I easily dropped the other 31 pounds. My exercise of choice is dance, which I do for an hour three to four times a week. I feel great after each workout!

Quote:
I did about 30 minutes of cardio six days a week and lifted weights for 20 minutes or so four times a week. It may have taken me a bit longer to lose the weight (eight months), but it paid off in the end because it’s stayed off! I took the time to figure out what worked for me. Through some trial and error, I discovered what I could eat to keep myself satiated, energized, healthy and content. A few of my favorite meals that accomplish this are oatmeal with peanut butter mixed in, scrambled egg whites with veggies, grilled salmon on a green salad and chicken with brown rice. I eat small meals six times a day and grew to love how clean eating (i.e., no processed foods) made me feel.

Consistency. The secret is to move a little, day in and day out, week in and week out, year in and year out. The same goes for eating. No matter what approach to food you take, simply aim to be as consistent as you can with your plan. Deviating from our healthy paths every now and then isn’t what packs the pounds back on. It's when we lose sight of our path entirely.

Quote:
Choose goals that you can sustain over time. If you choose a goal that is unrealistic, you set yourself up for failure, and this includes day-to-day goals as well. For example, if you know you will have a super-busy week and little free time, commit to working out just 15 minutes per day, rather than one hour, because there’s a good chance that won’t happen.
Quote:
Accept that there will be challenges, but realize that you can, and will, overcome them. If you mess up along the way, just start again without guilt and keep moving forward. If you’re not moving forward you are either stuck or going backward.

Another enjoyable football weekend has come and gone.

I spent this afternoon at my youngest son's football game, the last regular game of the season before playoffs.

When he began playing football for the first time last year, I thought to myself: Maybe we should tell him to just stick to baseball. This year has brought HUGE strides in experience, confidence, knowledge, speed -- all of it has just CLICKED for him. I'm even starting to see that coveted "passion" now and then, that LOOK, that ENERGY, that RELENTLESSNESS that you see when an athlete is in his zone. It's inevitable when it's there --- NO DENYING IT.

He has scored a TD in the last 4-5 games -- I've lost count now. Several tackles every game. And has earned the title of the fastest kid on the team.

Today was senior day, and my husband and I escorted him proudly to mid field where he received his trophy and accolades. It was a proud moment, a beautiful fall day, and he can look back and see how far he's come this year, with an even brighter future ahead of him.

Today will be all cardio for THIS athlete. No time to make it to the gym. Just as well, since DOMS are in the "wow" zone today. I'll make it to the gym no problem tomorrow evening.

Oh, and speaking of passion........I'm headed for a run tonight.

Very interesting, inspirational articles...Thanks for posting them! They are so true..There are concepts that took me months (years?) to learn but once they've become part of me, they really made the difference in my life.
But you wrote your success story as well
And you keep doing that and represent a source of inspiration for many of us, and I'm sure also for the people who live close to you and enjoy your positive attitude towards life every day!
I wish you a great Wednesday, and a great week too!

Twyla I love ya! Your pep talk was just the push I needed to get to that gym - over to the weights section with all those sweaty, pumped up men, grunting and heaving and I did it - I did my first upper body workout. I was so pumped. So thank you. I am now in it and can continue- it is just the first step that is so difficult.
Inspiring words from those articles.

Skinless boneless chicken breasts on sale at Kroger last night. Stocked up. (Salmon on sale too!)

It's been a while since I've done my shredded chicken recipe. Had to dig it out of my journal (7-2) to make sure I prepare it the same way. Journals are handy things.

My plan is to prepare some this weekend for the week ahead, easy meals. May have another very busy week and trying to save time.

One pkg boneless skinless chicken breasts (can be frozen) and place them in sauce pan with water, 3-4 cloves chopped garlic, salt, pepper, and a shake of rosemary. Boil gently for 45 mines till AMAZINGLY tender. Let cool. Shred the chicken and keep in a sealed container in frig.

Easy, very tender, yummy, clean, lowfat protein.

I've been very tired today.

Though I thought I'd had enough rest last night, I apparently had not. First thing this morning I went on a run/power walk for about 25 mins. I had to switch to power walking because my pants kept sliding down. It was cold out. I had on gloves for the first time in a while. Hurried back inside, grabbed some more coffee, showered, then I had to meet with some people for a couple of hours for some music practice.

Afterward, I had a light snack and planned to head to the gym. I was feeling tired on my way there, but I kept hoping I'd get revived once I got started. Not. I actually began to yawn a few times, and I just did NOT have the energy to accomplish what I'd hoped to. I worked my back mostly, and a set of squats, a little ab work. Chatted with one of the trainers/owners there, and she convinced me to go home and take a nap. After about 10 mins of followup cardio, I went home, grabbed a shake, and began proofreading.

Within minutes I was ready to crash. Napped. And I've been working on transcripts the rest of the day, except for stopping to prepare my son dinner. Not the most exciting way to spend a Saturday, but I'm SO SWAMPED, and I have no choice but to work through the weekend.

Taking a breather, switching gears for a moment. It can get monotonous.

I've carbed up today intentionally. Clean. Low fat. High carb and not a whole lot of attention to cals, just eating clean carbs and lots of water. It's been a while since I've done a high refeed. I felt like it may do me some good.

Major DOMS in my back, lats and triceps from the past two gym visits. Time to recover, Twyla.

Thinking that a hot soak in the tub would do me wonders. Hoping for a good night's rest.

Hope everything is well?!

I was wondering - I have been struggling w/a very bad knee since Feb... went to one PT group and they 'truly focused on the knee and strengthening my quad'... I would complain about a pain from the back of my rearend... going down my leg, the pain and inability to cross my leg and pain in my calf...etc...With my mom in poor health this summer - I simply stopped going... anyway - fast forward to the last two weeks - received another referral from the Orthopedic Surg for PT (trying out a new PT center) explaining my whole situation to him... (he is working on the whole leg - I believe the favoring my right knee, hurt my hip, hamstring and is pinching the gastrocnemius(spelling) and hamstring behind my knee... so - sorry for long explaination - MY QUESTION IS: Does your knee bother you to wear heels? I wore them last Saturday to a 80th Birthday party and I was really in pain - but I have been in pain anyway (this PT is really stretching me out at this point, etc...) Just curious?

thanks -

Best,
Kim

Hello to all visitors and friends....love you guys.

Updating the accountability to my journal.....I have run twice this week, Callanetics twice, and to the gym three times (including this morning’s trip); I’ve had one medium carb day and I’m going to have a medium-high-to-high (depending) today. This is all part of ongoing therapy for me. We wouldn't intentionally forget to take meds that have been prescribed for our health. Likewise, we shouldn't disregard the responsibility to our health--both mental and physical--regarding nutrition and exercise.

Okay. I haven’t been on the boards all week. (*)loads going on in life, and at work. Just frikkin crazy.

Likewise, I've a lot on my mind, too much, overwhelming, an overload. Needed some time for introspection.

Sometimes we all need to do this, step back, unplug. Sometimes we just gotta remember to breathe. To exhale.

We gotta remember to exhale every now and then.

Hi, Kim.

Sorry to hear about your ongoing knee issues. How I sympathize. I hope your recommitment to PT will resolve this over time for you.

As for wearing heels? Yes, but only when descending stairs. To walk in them? No. But descending stairs, I gotta take it slow, grandma-style. But I AIN'T gonna give up my heels -- to hell with grandmas -- so I guess I'll just keep taking my time going downstairs.

Sometimes in the mornings I'll forget something that's upstairs as I'm headed out the door, and i can run UP the stairs okay, but often when I'm in a hurry I'll wisk off my heels on my way back down the stairs so I can run... then flip 'em back on and take off out the door.

I do hope your knee feels better soon. Mine has improved. It's not 100%. But at least I'm running again. LOTS OF STRETCHING. CRITICAL.

I've recently -- in the last few weeks -- concocted a new recipe that I've REALLY been enjoying, so I thought I'd post it here for others who may be interested. Warning: These are addictive.



PUMPKIN PROTEIN FLAX MUFFIN

2 OZ CANNED PUMPKIN
1 SCOOP VAN WHEY PROTEIN
1 TBS FLAX (or 2)
1 PKG STEVIA
1/2 TSP CINNAMON
1 EGG WHITE (or 1 whole egg)

Stir together and pour into a pyrex or microwave safe custard cup that's been sprayed with Pam. Nuke for approx 1 min 40 seconds.

Remove from custard dish and let cool about five minutes before eating or slicing.

Variations: I've also added a touch of other spices to this recipe for variety, as well as .30 oz of chopped walnuts, or 1 Tbs of Fiber One, etc.

Combined with tweaked frosting, this makes a perfect Pumpkin n Cream Cheese legal dessert. For the cream cheese frosting:

.75 ounces of lowfat cream cheese, softened
1/2 Tbs s/f Davinci's
1-1.5 Tbs of van whey protein

Stir until smooth.

Btinc has helped me fashion a carb rotation approach, and I've researched the concept on my own from various sources.

"When you get in tune with your body is when you
will really burn all the fat you desire. At some point
you will get a certain feeling in your body and you know
that you are in the "fat burning zone". You need
to understand what it feels like when your body is carb
depleted. When your goal is to lose body fat, you want
to be carb depleted but no so bad that you don't have
any energy for working out. This is kind of a balancing
act. At first you will make mistakes and you won't be
great at this, but once mastered you will know exactly
what it takes to get as lean as you desire.
Make no mistake about it,
you are learning a 'skill' here...."

btinc
It's an experiment. I'm gonna try to stick with it for one month, tweak as needed, then go from there.
I did a search in my journal on the word (and forms of the word) balance.

Amazing how many times that word is mentioned in my journal.

This one, among my favorites.

TGIF.TGIF.TGIF.TGIF.TGIF.TGIF.

What a week. I'm on a lunch break, in the middle of a jury trial. I don't have very long, or I'd set my cell phone alarm, shut the door, and take a quick power nap -- I'M SO TIRED. I have DB's here, and I may do a set of squats or something before I'm called back. We will be starting jury instructions and then closing arguments, and I'm feeling a VERY DEEP SLEEP pending. OH NO..




The squats might get my blood circulating and buy me a couple more hours...? Maybe? Maybe not...??

If I could get outside and take a brisk walk or a run on this cold November afternoon, it would recharge me for several more hours. But here I sit, stuck, in a boring civil trial. And it's Friday. And I'm sleepy.

I've been busier than a 3-legged cat trying to cover up crap the past several weeks. I want off this ride.

Got in a fabulous session of Super Callanetics this morning. Rejuvenating. Felt wonderful.

Now....how to stay awake during close arguments....hmmmmm

Awwww T that sounds very stressful can you have some coffee or go throw cold water over your face and wrists that might do the trick, but then if you have makeup on that might not be a good idea

Eureka. I'll keep a glass of ice water on my desk in the courtroom. Screw the makeup...just stay awake, Twyla, STAY AWAKE!

(BTW, I've already had FOUR cups of coffee since I arrived at the office this morning. It's losing its effect!)

M....

Okay. I made it through instructions and closing arguments w/o falling asleep. I tried green tea.... x 2.

So taking it easy for a few minutes while I surf Amazon to download some fresh tunes for my cardio tonight with my MP3...and while surfing, I've discovered Bruno Mars -- nice voice, good stuff.

My new downloads

I Like It - Enrique
Club Can't Handle Me - Flo Rida
Only Girl in the World - Rihanna
Just a Dream - Nelly

Might have to download a tune or two of Bruno's....hmmm...I think I like this guy.

My God...this is beautiful.



I've spent the late afternoon cleaning and decorating. I'll be hosting Bunco at my house on Tuesday, and I want everything to look warm, cozy, seasonal, an inviting harmony of color and textures. Stopped at a little market to pick up a few gourds for decorating, and this kind lady allowed me to take as many on the display stand as I wanted, saying it was gonna freeze tonight anyway, and they needed to be where they'd be appreciated. OH WOW. Was I excited!!!

Began this day with running intervals (32 mins), then about an hour later made it to the gym for about 50 mins of triceps, biceps, abs and leg press. Felt so fabulous when I left there...It's been a beautiful, crisp autumn day. Having a relaxing glass of Ergo to seal the day.

My gourd displays...not too bad for an amateur!
