quick update

move it, girl!

so since my last post i've been trying to shed this weight. so far, no go. i'm still stuck at 105. i weighed myself this morning and that's what the scale said. that's due to me not really eating properly and exercising sporadically. now, i can assure you, for the last week and a half, i have been better (at exercising, that is). for one week straight, i actually recorded at least 15 minutes of exercises a day. i'm not counting mini walks here and there as part of those 15 minutes. those 15 minutes were of actual time committed to being active. i did a lot of mini workouts from the iphone app, nike training club. yeah, the app's pretty good. it's got video and photo how-to's should you need it. i have yet to go through all the different videos, but with the ones i've done so far, i really like it. they have workouts starting at 15-minute to 45-minute ones. generally i just stick to a quick 15-minute workout that targets a specific body part and do two of those for a full 30 minutes or go for an all-around body workout in 15 minutes.

anyway, so far this week i've been really good! i ate great yesterday (i use this app and this app to track my food intake -- yes, i use both because one has something i need that the other doesn't and the other doesn't have or have, you get what i'm saying here). i've definitely been eating a whole lot less than i have been in weeks! and today, i'm still going strong. my diet is good. i ran 4 miles this morning and saw the sun rise. i ran again during my lunch break, another 2.5 miles and tackled the heavy foot and car traffic of busy downtown san francisco. i'm thinking if i can keep this up, i should plan to run during my lunch breaks at least 3x a week or something. nothing major. just a simple 2-3 miles should do. it doesn't hurt, especially with the days getting lighter later and darker sooner. sucks, i know, running without sunshine.

alright, that's all for now. will check back hopefully in a week or so to see how good/bad i've been. i hope it's good. :)
