Shutting her down.

I am not going to blog here anymore. I am not moving forward with my running. I am looking for other avenues that I have talked about before on this blog.

I am not going to be recording my #500in2010 here either unless I start walking. I am not really loving that idea. So...

That is it for now!

P.S. I am OK!!

Not much to report, except that my weight is climbing back up the ladder. And I am not exercising really at all. I am eating too much. and not getting enough sleep. My knee still bothers me.

I would say that I am a lump on a log right now. Something has to change for the better! I am going to go to Zumba again tomorrow. I need to MOVE!

Wed thru Sunday.

I didn't run at all. I think my knee is feeling pretty good. Last Tuesday I tried out Zumba. It was a great class. I hope to try it again this week. And maybe a run to see how the knee is doing.

I only did my walks back and forth to school for the balance of the week.

2 walks back and forth to school x 3 = 6 km

Plus the walking we did at the wedding I shot on Saturday. I figure I walked a couple of km's. = 2 km

Didn't run on Sunday either. I also worked on Sunday! Crazy work weekend! All worth it however!!

8 km = 5 miles. I guess the little walks count. Not exactly what I pictured for this week. Pants are getting tighter. Pants are getting tighter. Face is getting rounder.

#500 in 2010 = 5 miles (Tues - Sunday)

Here is to a better week with way more miles. I feel rather bummed about this total!!

Weekly total = 6.86 miles

Monday and Tuesday.

Yesterday, I walked back and forth to school. 2 km

Today, I walked to school and back. 1x. 1 km.

My knee is still bothering me. SO, not too sure about running tomorrow.

#500in2010 = 1.86 miles

Sunday! - A change is as good as a rest!

I had a great day with my husband today. Burnaby, to North Van, to West Van. Up Grouse Mountain. They call it the Peak of Vancouver. It is breathtaking!! Saw the Cleveland Dam in Vancouver. Went to Deep cove. Busy busy. It was rainy, then sunny. And, up on the top of Grouse it was 4 degrees and SNOWING. We got back down, and sunny. Got to love Vancouver!

We did a lot of walking today. We also saw three timber wolves in a habitat at the base of Grouse Mountain. I think we live in such a beautiful place. I also saw Paul Plakas on the Grouse Tram. My husband spotted him on there. He is the kick ass fitness trainer on the network Slice. He must have been filming up there as he was with a crew.

It was a good day! No runs today.

Just walking today. We figure about 3 km of walking. Most delightful scenery. And the best honey donuts you have ever tasted! Sometimes you just have to splurge.

Last night we were watching the Housewives of Altanta. One of them used the phrase... "You need to get skinny vision." I liked that. LOL.

#500in2010 walk today 3 km = 1.86 miles

#500in2010 total miles for the week = 12.45 miles (darn knee)

I miss her. Yes, that is me. August 2008. Size six pants, extra small top.

So, I didn't run on Wednesday. Sore knee.

I haven't done much. Just my walks, and I can feel my jeans getting tighter by the second. Ugggh.

Friday - #500in2010 = 1.25 miles

Saturday - #500in2010 = 1 miles (walked to and from an appointment)

#500in2010 = 2.25 miles

I will most likely not be running tomorrow as I have some wedding scouting to do! I hope to run on Wednesday, try the 4 hills and hope for the best. Not the kind of week I was hoping for at all. I am really disappointed.

I will not give up. Even if I cannot run, I have a plan B. But it will not add up the miles. However, it could be a lot of fun. Pole Dancing for fitness, and Zumba classes are on the horizon!

I am also seeking out a life coach. I think it is time to break through the barriers!

I walked to and from school 2x's and took the long way. Last night, I discovered that my right knee was hurting after the hills I guess.

I didn't run tonight. Will see how I feel and hopefully run on Sunday. *fingers crossed*

3 km = 1.86 miles
