Kickin JennyV's Pig

Jumping on the "Kick The Pig" wagon. Mostly it's about losing weight, but really it's about living a healthier lifestyle.

Still At It

I'm still running. It's taking me a while to develop a schedule that will work for me. My days and weeks are always so jumbled. I have no idea how to squeeze much more into it!

I'm running on Tuesday, Thursday, & Saturday. On Sunday I'm also to be deliberate in getting exercise, but it doesn't have to be running. I need to be flexible, yet still focused. As the spring season falls upon us, I'm itching to get out and ride. Eventually I think the riding might interfere with the running plan; however, it is still exercise... so I will find a way to work that out.

I lost 5 pounds as of this past Sunday! I am not dieting. I am aware of my choices. I bought some Nutella to have on toast when I need a snack. Some days I need a snack instead of a meal before I run. So that's working. I'm also onto yogurt... and some other little things.

That's it... Have to pull myself together and get to work!

One More Time

I'm running again. I started 2/19/10. All on the treadmill so far. It's been too cold to run outside, but honestly it is warming up... I wonder if today might be a good day to run outside? Hmmm...

I'd really like to buy new running shoes and some workout clothes, but they are not yet in the budget. :(

post from BB

I've never posted from my BB before but let's give it a try.

I've had a couple fantastic rides this spring. Penny gets prettier and prettier every day. She's still shedding some of her winter coat revealing a much darker coat underneath. Oh it is BEAUTIFUL! I so hope she is a dark palomino this year. If she is I will blame it on the fact that she finally home with me and is settled. I have no idea if that has anything to do with it but it sounds good.

Still Kickin...

Kick Kick Kick the pig! I don't know why I don't do it enough... Getting started is the hard part. Once I'm into it... I roll!

Still looking for some sort of motivation. Maybe I'll order a fitness magazine. That would help me refocus at least once per month.

Small Streaks

I've made a small streak of three days with exercise. I'm trying to focus on establishing the routine more than the intensity right now. Maybe if I think I HAVE to run on the treadmill it is a dreadful thought, but if I just need to walk on it for say 20 minutes... it's easier on my mind. PLUS I ran some too yesterday and today AND I extended an additional 5 minutes just because I was feeling good! See how easy that is!
Notably, it is time for my 6 month lab check to see how my cholesterol is doing. After my last visit with the doc, she prescribed some Omega-3's but they are ultry expensive! Like over $165!!!! My insurance doesn't cover them - yet. I'm hoping maybe sometime soon they will. So because it was not cost-effective, I got some over the counter Omega-3's at the drug store. They give me heartburn and make me burp fish- YUK!!!! I threw them out!
So if the little bit that I was taking actually DID make any difference, then maybe I'll spring for the expense and take just one per day or every other day instead of 2 or 3 per day. As long as that is okay with doc.... We shall see.
Remind me to call for a lab slip! And while I'm at it I'm going to ask her if there is anything I can do to effectively increase my ability to FOCUS! I'm telling you I am somewhere between ADD and OCD... maybe a little of both!

I NEED to lose my double chin! Focus is my problem. I am really really good for a while and then I lose focus and have to start all over. Anyone know some good remedies for KEEPING focused? I've GOT to find some!

Sing it... Back In The Saddle Again!!!

YES - I exercised today! I'm running and walking half and half for 20 minutes with a 5 minute warmup and 5 minute cool-down. This is accompanied by some pre and post stretching, 3 sets of crunches, and some simple weight training. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh... It feels so good!

God meets me at the treadmill. He is my workout partner! I love it!!! Where do you go to meet God? Do you have a special place? A special time?
