Well for someone who doesn’t have much to say – I think I’ve said enough for today.
I got a little analytical this morning and between my treadmill miles and my pedometer kilometers, versus steps versus how many centimeters per step, I’ve got my step length as accurate as I can. I was a little short prior to today. In Mazatlan, I won’t have any idea how many miles I have walked because I probably won’t be bringing my garmin so I can look at the pedometer to see how far I walked. Mind you, I won’t be wearing it all day long because it’s kind of hard to hide that thing in a bathing suit J

I haven’t told you about my new shoes have I? They are called Vibrams. Stacey knows all about them because she has been wearing them and she really likes them. ME, I’m afraid to wear them just yet because I don’t want to hurt my feet too much. So why did I get them you may ask?? Well I thought they would work great on the beach in Mazatlan rather than my running shoes. Ever tried to get sand out of orthotics and all the mesh on a $200 pair of shoes… I’d rather wear the vibrams. When we go deep sea fishing, I always walk around in my bare feet because it isn’t quite as slippery but last year, I broke my baby toe on this bulk head thing (not sure if that is what it is called) that sticks out of the deck. I hit it a couple of times that day and it was a very painful experience. It stopped my first attempt at learning to run as I couldn’t put on my running shoes for about 6 weeks after. And I also thought over time, they would be great for strengthening my feet. I ran round in bare feet as a child all the time. I could run full speed down an alley in bare feet – can’t do that anymore without killing myself. The vibrams will help protect my feet.
I have been unable to catch up on everyone’s blogs lately. Have been very busy at work and on Friday night we headed out for my SIL 40th B-Day party. Had a great time. Had too great of a time. But got to see people and family that I haven’t seen for awhile. Lots of comments on my body changes. We ended up staying over at my sisters and basically yesterday was a total wipe. 3 hours of sleep on a lumpy couch does not do a body good. But it was safer…..
I had enough energy to clean up my yard, and that’s about it. No running for this girl and I have some big time catching up to do. I only managed to do one C25K W3 session last week so I’m going to do it again today and see how I do. Might just stick with week 3 this week then move on the following week. Not sure at the time of this writing as I still have to go downstairs and hit the treadmill. I did OK last week with exercising. Monday I finally made it to Hot Yoga, Tues/Thursday were great with some double workouts, Wednesday and Friday were so so…. This week I have to pick it up a notch and I know how and what to do.
I did not drink a wheatgrass/veggie juice at all this past week. My wheatgrass did not grow right so I’m starting a new batch today. It will be ready by next Friday so I plan on getting back into it then. I will start another tray about Thursday and then won’t do another one until we get back from vacation in May. It will just die anyway. As for veggies, well I’ve got to go do some shopping today. I had carrots but that’s it. So this week will be much better.
Exercising everyday – well I did something every day – some days double so I think I am doing great there.
The point about if it isn’t nutritional – don’t put it in my mouth… well I really need to work on this one. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and I am going to be focusing again starting today. I’ve got another post coming about what I am planning.
And something I like about myself – hmm.. My eyes, they are a lovely green when all is good in my life, and can get darker if I’m not feeling well. I have very open, trusting eyes. Sometimes too trusting, but whatever :)
Thurs: 13886, Fri: 7006, Saturday: 6036 – tomorrow I will average them all out and report the total.
I hope everyone is having a FANTATIC weekend!

The one that I have not received in the past is the “One Lovely Blog Award”. I am not sure if there are any rules for it so I am just going to pass this on to each and every one of my readers. You guys have been a LOT of support to me and I read each and every one of your blogs daily (those that post anyway& this includes the Google readers…. ). I may not always comment, but I certainly try to read it all. I think everyone in this bloggy community deserves these awards.

I had my bio-feedback session yesterday afternoon and my body is stressed (no kidding eh?). My cortisol levels are up and my thyroid isn’t very happy either. I kind of was all over the place so there wasn’t really anything we could pinpoint. At then end of it, she asked me to just take some me time, at the end of the day (which I do do already) but really make it down time – like 15 minutes of meditation – no reading, no music, nothing. Something to drop my stress levels down before I go to sleep. I think I can fit that in. She also wants me to drop my snacks and just have 3 main meals for awhile. 3 large meals, well at least the first two large, last one kind of medium. I like my apples for snacks so I’ll just have them as desert. This does not include my post protein shake that I drink after EVERY strength training session. That one is important and one I will continue long term. Eating only three meals will be interesting. My caliper results show a loss again but she hasn’t sent my final numbers yet so I’m not sure where I am. Once I get that, I’ll share.
So back to the plan for the weekend. :)
Today I’m walking the dog for a couple of hours, then we are going to get tickets to “How to Train a Dragon” and I’m going to go to the afternoon show. I really want to see it and the young man leaves here tomorrow (spring break over) so now is the time to take him. Then we are going OUT for dinner. I don’t feel like cooking.
Tomorrow I’ll kick my butt but for today, I’m kind of taking it easy.
For the Spring Challenge update, I’ve done really well all week. I am meeting all my goals (they are over there on the right hand side of my page). Loretta asks that we mention something we like about ourselves as well and for me, well I like me. I think I am a very good friend, honest, open and kind. My family calls me the gentle one. My sister can get a bit hot headed and easily can worry about the smallest things, my brother also worries too much and I am the rock/glue that holds them all together.
I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend.

- M/W/F – Hot Yoga (90 Minutes) – I’ve also got to start walking 4-5 Miles a couple times during the week somewhere in here. Might be lunch time or after the Yoga sessions in the evening.
- Tu/Thu – 45 min Walk/Jog Session early a.m. with co-worker (she’s also my boss J).
- Tu/Thu – 20 min warm up on some kind of machine, then 60 minutes with my PT after work.
- Sa/Sun – 1x30-45min C25K training session PLUS get in as much outdoor walking as I can because I’m training for a 100K in September. I also have to work in another Strength training session in here somewhere. I like to work the muscles at least 3 times a week. I’ve got to really strengthen my core/legs so that I can do all this walking.
