Defeat of the Feet (and Knees, and Hips)

I’m disappointed to say that this is me (kind of) signing off with C25k (for now).  I may have been pushing it to try another walk/run today. I had planned to wait another day, but the pain was pretty much gone, so I decided I’d just try it today, but take it a bit easy. […]

Proceeding with the Process

It was the last day of my family’s four day weekend and I had plans for some naughty food later in the day, so I started my morning with a breakfast of apples, for zero Weight Watchers Points Plus.   We were having a lazy tv day, so at lunch time we had some lazy […]

The day I Did Not Say No

After my relieving weigh in today (2.6 pounds lost) I was assigned a new daily Weight Watchers Points Plus allowance. The new number is 40, with 49 additional points to divide over the course of a week.  I’m really lucky that my week reset today because yesterday was a big point day, and today was […]

The Day I Broke Up With an Old Comfort Food / C25k Day 4

Today’s breakfast was a turkey B.L.T. from the deli, 12 Points Plus.   With a side of important info: Lunch was a can of Annie’s cheesy ravioli with one cookie. O-n-e, one, 11 Points Plus. Just kidding, I had a second one. 2 Points Plus   I’ve been worrying about how I’m going to fit C25k in […]

Behaving Myself

So, after my slight gain at weigh in I decided to be a little more reasonable with the food today. I know, I know, it’s a crazy concept, but bear with me. Breakfast was a turkey blt, 12 Points Plus.    After that I did week one, day 2 of C25k.  I’d call it a […]

C25k Day One…and I Enjoyed It?

Something huge and strange happened today. I did Couch to 5k day one, and I actually enjoyed it. This is the third time I’ve attempted C25k in years gone by and the other times were a huge struggle, I hated that voice that told me to start running, and my ankles and calves were swollen to […]
