Cash Talks!! Fat Walks!! Weekly Update


Starting 190 Last 177 Current 175

15 pounds!

See my pants …

These were skin tight not too long ago. Now, they are all getting too big and I am having trouble keeping them up! Yay!

Eating Plan:

When I am trying to lose weight, I like having things “written in stone” for me. With variety and choice comes my freedom to cheat. I know this voids all ideas of learning to make the right choices and eating right because I know it is the right way to eat. But, for now, I just need to continue to get some of this weight off. Last week, I successfully used the slimrite shakes (with one frozen meal and snacks of fruit and veggies) from Sunday to Thursday. But, by Thursday night, I was starting to have cravings for just normal foods … like my favorite breakfast cereal. So, this week, I am going to alternate between a shake day with a normal eat right day. I am hoping this will keep me losing it!

I am continuing on with my previous exercise goal … the couch to 5K running plan that I found here . I plan to run a 5K hosted by a local school the end of September. On my off run days, I usually find some other form of activity to do. Somedays I swim. Somedays I do a video. Somedays, I do callisthenics. This week, though, I plan to add weights back into my workout.


I am still on the “wog” part of the couch to 5K. I walk for approximately 60 seconds and jog for 90 seconds. This works out to be 1/2 lap jogging and 1/2 lap walking on the track I am doing. Because I am still struggling with leg cramps, this has been very difficult for me. I stretch. I warm up. I have added a powerade zero pre-workout. I have added a banana to my morning shake. I drink loads of water and still I have leg cramps when I wog. That is the reason for the quote this week … “Few of us know what we are capable of doing… we have never pushed ourselves hard enough to find out.” – Alfred A. Montapert.

We have a really nice track at our high school. But, due to vandalism, they no longer have it open to the public. So, the area I walk is a parking lot. I have my path for timing sake mentally mapped out in my mind. As I begin to approach my mark to start running, my legs are cramping and my mind starts frantically thinking … Don’t do it! Just walk! It’s going to really hurt when you run! But, instead, I hit my mark and start my jog. I have to push myself physically, but even more so mentally!

As I run, I know I look like a goof! And as my cramps get worse, I am sure my jog is slower than my starting walk was. It’s just very frustrating because I know I could do so well if my legs didn’t hurt!!

Wednesday, I plan to move my workout to the grass to see if the extra padding makes a difference. I have put off trying this because the ground in our area is always so uneven with lots of holes and I have been afraid of twisting my ankle. So, I am going to go to an area ball field in hopes that it has been kept up better for the athletes.

I am also going to premedicate with ibuprofen.  I had been planning to do this previously, but just cannot seem to remember to do it.

I welcome any ideas or suggestions from other runners out there. What has worked for you?


About nonnymoose2014

I have recently retired from the healthcare field, nursing. As I try to figure out what I want to be when I grow up, this seemed like the perfect time to try my hand at blogging again. In the past, my success (or lack thereof) I believe hinged on my fear of revealing too much about myself. I have a desire to “put it all out there” BUT I want to do it on my own terms … anonymously! Thus came Nonny Moose.
