[a weight loss story]

*kathrynoh at nemesis dot com dot au*



You know, it really bugs me when people move blogs. You have to update your links and all that mucking around. Makes you wonder why they can't just stay put... except I've gone and done it. Blogger has been pissing me off lately and I've been impressed with the features that Word Press provides. I've moved everything over, just got to update my links and tinker with my layout but that can wait. So...

That's the new home. Move me, baby!

As long as they can still be picked up by Bloglines I am a happy and willing camper. All changed.

I've decided against the boot camp, not because of the money but because I feel like I'm just not up to it at the moment. On top of running and other things, I would be too much and I'd be doing too many things in a half arsed way.

Lately I feel buggered most of the time anyway, what with running and gym and work and driving and the cold and my sister and everything else. I did manage to score a half day off yesterday. I had to take Andrew to Officeworks and on the way called into my fave wool shop. I spent far too much money - I got the most gorgeous angora wool but I thought the balls were 50 grams, they ended up being 25 grams so I had to buy twice as much as I'd thought. Still it's so lovely and soft and pattable. I can't wait to make my cardi. I wanted to make it in black but had to get a blue-grey which I think will still look pretty awesome.

Tonight we went to the Tan and did some hill training.... it wasn't too bad actually and I finished feeling like I could have done more, which is always a good thing.

Sorry I haven't been around in a while... I've taken a little blog break and now I'm trying to catch up with everyone. Sounds like you're an exercise machine these days! Wow. I'm very impressed with your exercise schedule and think that you should so be my role model... Take care.

By Blogger Alea, at 4:38 am  

I am really envious of your knitting :)

Great going on the hill training, your running sounds very on track in prep for your first half.

Scarves and beanies are my limit - but it's so therapeutic to knit or crochet. I'm working on a beanie at the moment - to match the scarf I made last week!

I've got a decision to think about - my local gym runs a boot camp program that costs $100 for 4 weeks (12 sessions) + gym entry of around $50, which is damn fine value for a program like that. The dilemma-ey part is that I'm still a member at Fitness First so I'd be paying membership there and it's not like I'll be using it much, what with 3 boot camp sessions and 4 running sessions a week. So do I do the boot camp and waste my gym membership fees for a month or be a tight arse?

I can't suspend my gym membership because I've already suspended it for the maximum period allowed this month.

The other issue is that if I did any boot camp, even the one run by Fitness First, I'd be paying extra on top of my gym membership fees (a lot more than $150) anyway, so theoretically I'd be saving money.

I've got until Monday morning, when the program begins, to decide.

While I'm making decisions, I actually did make one this morning about my exercise program. When I go to the gym to do cardio, I do some bike to use my non-running muscles but then ended doing most of my workout on the cross trainer because I know I can burn a shitload of calories. Fine in theory, but this morning I went on my run and really felt the oomph run out in my legs around the 5 km mark. I'd done a gym session last night so I reckon I'm pushing the running muscles too hard. Instead of doing 5-6 workouts using the same muscle groups each week, I'm going to do cut out the cardio machines at the gym and maybe do spin or other classes instead.

If I make the gym workouts easier then I should be able to have more to put in when I'm running - ie. 3-4 harder workouts a week and a couple of easier ones rather than 5-6 hardish ones. Yeah, I know that is bleedingly obvious but sometimes I get caught up in the calorie burning numbers and ignore common sense.

Maybe that's the answer - instead of bootcamp, doing so cruisey spin classes and keeping up the weight training and maybe some more yoga and pilates?

It's a big decision Kathryn. Boot camp is really motivating but I understand that you wouldn't want to waste your gym membership either.

Is the gym going to run any more sessions? Maybe you'd be able to suspend your membership for a different boot camp session.

By Blogger Kathy, at 10:27 pm  

i have a gym membership at one club, so i can do classes, and a swimming membership at another - for the pool. the swimming pool has a gym too, but it's not convenient for me so i pay extra to go somewhere else closer to home. it would be much cheaper for me to just have a full membership at the swimming pool club. and because my loyalties are split i don't get the best use out of either facility. but what price health, and motivation? i reckon that if you think that you will be able to manage it financially, do both. then re-assess your options after that...


By Anonymous Anonymous, at 11:25 pm  

i crap with money..and tootle from one thing to the next...however for me..if boot camp is gung just go for it...frig the expense,..we all know how good we feel when exercising well..and i believe they WORK u hard!!! your choice,,but i would pay and be happy about it

By Blogger jojo, at 11:38 pm  

Spin or some kind of cycling is a good idea - running really works the hamstrings and a lot of runners end up with a muscle imbalance between hammies and quads because they don't do enough cross-training and/or resistance work to make sure everything is strong and happy. Then they risk injury ....knees, hips....uh-oh!

So cycling will get those quads really working and hopefully avoid any problems.

If you're doing weights, you might consider doing a little more quad work than hamstrings too.

It's all about balance.

I thought weight loss is easy when I hit the gym. I started losing weight well but everytime I sop it keeps coming back. I don’t know what to do. Do you know any tablet that helps reduce weight without exercise? Am I asking too much here? What the hell are all pharmacy companies doing?

Shitty Run

I've had a pretty lazy weekend, mostly spent getting the laptop up to speed, but headed out for a 7 km run tonight. Simon picked the course - around Royal Park with lots of hills. I was very slow, mostly because I needed a toilet.

We'd done one lap and were almost back to Princes Park (and toilets) when Simon decided to change direction. His logic was that we didn't want to run the scary, unlit bit in the dark. Couldn't argue with that.

We found some public toilets in Royal Park. I had a choice of three. One that was vile, one with a banked up bowl and the third one, well it had some paper in it so I flushed it first and it seemed fine until the water came back up the drain on the floor. I think it was water but I screamed and ran out fast. Since it was an emergency and #3 was the best of a bad bunch, I used it but didn't flush it afterward. Apologies to anyone using a public loo at Royal Park *blush*.

oooh public toilets...they are mean mean mean things!

By Blogger jojo, at 10:11 am  

Don't you hate it when you go before your run but then take like one step and need to go again, but by then you are on your run and can't turn around. I hate that.

By Blogger Celeste, at 11:16 am  

I had a very similar encounter this morning around the Tan but I was too horrified to blog about it- public toilets are just to nasty to contemplate sometimes.

By Blogger MorseyRuns, at 3:35 pm  

haha public toilets are vile! You know never to flush any toilet with the seat up right? Faeces particles fly up to 6 ft in the air.

Also never wash your hands at a public toilet, you'll only succeed in picking up more germs as you go. (Unless you wiped your arse with your hand or something or course haha)

I reckon being a plumber would be the worst job on earth and being a plumber for the council would have to be horrific.

I heart my laptop!

My laptop rules. It's speediness means I can do amazing things like play Itunes and do other things at the same time. Woohoo. I haven't tried using the wireless yet but I set up my modem - I thought it would be dead hard because I lost the install Cd (well, it's not lost, just in a box in my storage space.... arggggh!) but I did it. The hardest part of the whole changeover process was that I only had one mouse and had to keep swapping it over. I can't use those whizzy finger thingos on the laptop. Plus the mouse kept thinking I'd double clicked when I'd only clicked once so I got very mad.

Get this, I used a flash drive to move all my files over. It took 16 minutes to copy the first lot of files onto it and 16 seconds to transfer them off it and onto the laptop. I even copied over my emails which isn't the most intuitive process - plus I couldn't search the folders on my old computer cos the search made the monitor go crazy! That was some fun.

The only thing that's slow is my internet connection so I'm going to have to play with that tomorrow. I've spent far too long at the computer today. Oh and I also need Office or an Office substitute. I only want Word and Excel, not all the other shit that comes with it.

Okay, I have a deep, un-laptop related thought for the day. You know when you have kids and you made the tough calls and you tell them - 'you'll thank me for this one day', that's bullshit isn't it. Have you ever thanked your parents for the tough calls? I've never thanked my mum. Mostly I still bitch about it. Although one time when I was 16, I told her I was staying with a friend and actually stayed at my boyfriend's place. She found out and came and picked me up. I've never said that I was secretly relieved cos after the first night I was kinda bored and had no way of getting home. But if I told her, I'd be admitting she was right :D

I couldn't live with my laptop now! They are unreal.

LOL at the mamma thanks. I know what you mean! I somehow can't seem to say thanks to my parents either and probably because they would just scoff at it. My parents are my heroes.

By Blogger Mary, at 8:11 am  

I have thanked my Mother in the past and actually am continuing to do so. She always rescues me from the crap in my life. Although not completely. I kind of have to drag myself half way and then when she knows i'm committed she'll help me the rest of the way. Does that make sense or was I a bit too cryptic. Anyhoo, I know what I mean. My Mum is the bestest!!
Hope you're having a great weekend. We have that WiFi thing set up in the office now for all the ring-ins that are coming up to help out with the extra claims. If you're ever in the area you're more than welcome to come and use it! haha

Fun run

We went for a long run today - 15 kms. About half way we passed a laptop shop and I've been looking for one for a while and, even though it was a quick browse, I found the one I want and put it on hold. The salesman had a bit of trouble with the concept that I was in mid run and had no cash or cards on me. He also had trouble with the concept that I didn't want a sales pitch, just a few answers to my questions.

Anyway, I have to go in tomorrow and pick it up which is a total pain in the arse because it's opposite Vic Market. I'm a bit worried too because it's the same price as a lot of others I looked at yet far better than anything else in the same price range. It's refurbished but I'd be paying at least double to get the same specs in something new. Plus tomorrows the cut off (end of financial year) so this is it.

After that, we continued running but it got very wet then very windy. By the time we got to Princes Park, we were the two most miserable runners ever. If we'd have seen a cab, we'd have not made the full distance. Luckily the last 4 kms were nice and sheltered.

I'm feeling a bit poorly now - we'd planned the run for 2.00 this arvo so I had a yummo orange and macademia nut slice for morning tea then no lunch cos I get sick if eat within 2 hours or so of my run then Simon called to say he was working from home so instead of running from work I went to his place. After much paffing around, it was 4.00 when we started running. by the time we ran, shopped, ran some more, showered changed, got out for dinner, ordered and got served I could have eaten a horse. I could have eaten a dead, rotting horse carcass! I scoffed down the best ever curry platter (we went to Lentil as Anything - one of my fave eating places in the world) and a few glasses of wine. Not exactly a winning combo!

We finished the night at the pub watching the footy. I've never been into footy but our family tipping comp is so hotly contested that I've been taking more of an interested. And - damnit - I tipped Melbourne! I have a system that makes no sense but usually works. It's based on geography and personal bias.

So tomorrow I'm getting the laptop and since I'm in the Vic Market 'hood, picking up some fruit and vege, then off to get some wool. In the arvo I'm planning trips to Borders and Starbucks and anywhere else with WiFi. I'm so excited - my old PC is so shite it has a Y2K compliance sticker!

Can't believe that you combine running and shopping for expensive technology successfully! I can usually incorporate a bit of window shopping but that is it. Good work for getting out in the rain- it is such a test and you passed!

By Blogger MorseyRuns, at 10:21 am  

ha ha ha. My name is at the top of blogs you read. I've finally made it for the minute or so that it stays up there. Why does this make me so happy.....I gotta get a life!
Running 15km in crappy weather - you're a legend! BTW thanks for the pattern.

A new laptop - how exciting! Is the Wifi access free in places like Borders?

By Blogger Andrew(ajh), at 2:51 pm  

most people do not understand how multitasking can be done, particularly it guys, as they have often had to spend so long specializing.
it is also interesting how some people say there is no time for exercise, because it is quite amazing how much inspiration one can get while or after exercising, inspiration for laptops included: Well done!

By Blogger Unknown, at 5:51 pm  

I love the whole idea of running and shopping at the same time. Enjoy your new laptop!

Runs and Gatherings

Tonight was supposed to be a speed interval session at Princes Park.. ha, ha, that soon got moved inside. We did 2 min fast, 3 min recovery x 5 on the treadie at the gym instead and I'm buggered now. I think I went too hard cos I couldn't maintain my fast speed for the last interval.

In November I have to go back to Tassie for my Nan's 95th birthday. I'm determined to be total buff and gorgeous by then. I'm going to see heaps of rellos that I haven't seen in over 10 years (I've been back home since then but never bothered seeing them).

Now, all you Melbourne knitters, the lovely Brooke is organising a knitting get together with much frivolity and snack foods. Go tell her you want in on it. Remember you burn 40 calories an hour more knitting than just sitting on your butt.

hey hadnt noticed the weight thing previously(yeah im a bit vague!!).. gee youve done a fantastic job already..keep up the great work :)

How many calories in a chocobana ball? LOL!

Looking forward to seeing you soon :O)

40 calories an hour! I've knitted 4 cushion covers for my daughter. They turned out great, eventually. I'll have to go look for a new easy project to keep working on those 40 calories. Does that mean I can eat chocolate while I'm knitting then?

I love seeing the look on the faces of those people who haven't seen me for a while. I'm sure your relatives will be suitably impressed. :-)

I'm so cold. I don't think I've been really warm in the last two months or more. Yesterday at work I was complaining about the cold and one of the woman said she freezes when she gets up of a morning until she puts on the ducted heating. I nearly hit her. If I had ducted heating, I'd be in heaven. Well actually even hell is looking good because it'd be warm.

The other day I thought about packing all my stuff into the car and driving until I could turn the heaters off and moving there. It's damn cold. Sometimes it's even colder inside our house than it is inside. At least I'm motivated for my morning run - it means I only have to shower in the arctic bathroom once a day!

When I get paid this weekend I think I'll go shopping for more heaters and some thermal underwear and a bodysuit made from electric blankets.

Kathryn, I am really suffering this year also even with ducted heating. Until it warms up I think its warmer outside also. The plus is that its beautiful and cool in the summer.

I'm with you Kathryn. I hate the cold. I hate the cold. Thank goodness for the electric blanket.

Let me just say that thermal underwear is worth its weight in gold. I feel the cold and I can heartily endorse the superfine merino winter woolies.

Also - nothing better than a slow cooked stew with fresh bread. Oops did I just talk about food? Sorry.

ive never really minded the cold..but this year i am freeeeeezing.. its often colder in my house than outside!!!although i shouldnt complain..maybe its because i lost some fat that used to keep me warm ;)

When I went for my run last night it was so cold my face froze. When I got home I couldn't speak properly!
