Dear Diary,

I’ve been bad.  Very, very bad.  I’ve been indulging in carrot cake (a piece here or there) and wine Friday night, beer last night.  I didn’t work out today because I was hungover.  I did work out yesterday at home (see below).  I think I’m PMSing (I hope, explains cravings and weight gain…).

Ah well.  Guess I’m going to clean up my act this week. It can’t go on like this!

Dear Diary


June 29, 2009

Dear Diary,

 Today was a good day.  I ate well and got a lot of exercise in!  I am starting to “run” up the stairs instead of walking.  I did the below routine at the gym.  I switched from the elliptical to the treadmill so my body gets used to running for 30min.  I did 1min warmup, 5min running, 1min rest, 5min running, 2min rest, 5min running and then about 4min cooldown.  All in all 15min running and will adjust to make it harder.  I think I’ll run for 6min and rest for 1min and see how that goes.

When I got to my work inbox I found out that the beach volleyball team (in a tourni in less than 2 weeks) was going to practice after work…5pm-6:30pm and they were still going!  I left because I was pooped and sweaty to boot.  Why the cartoon? I love cats.

Breakfast: The usual

Snack: Protein bar

Lunch: Chicken eggplant veggie stir fry over white rice

Snack: Protein shake

Dinner: Egg and ham on whole wheat.

Map My Run – great website for runner’s


I was trying to find out how long my usual route was, and how much more I had to add for the 5K.  Found this GREAT website called MapMyRun (  Create an account (I got the free one) and then you can map out your routes on a map.  It allows you to save many routes, adds theis Ks or Miles, and can find new routes for you.  You can track your dialy runs (how long, what routes, etc) and you daily calorie intake.  So handy.  I love it.
