Reluctant Runner

After a few years of marriage, a sedentary desk job, too much fast food, and a general lack of exercise, I found myself facing a puffy stranger in the mirror. For once things clicked, and I lost almost 25 pounds. That was 2008, and since then I've gained back all but three of those pounds. Ugh.

I always start out with the best of intentions, gung-ho and with my plan for success mapped out in detail. Planning is the fun part...sticking to the plan? Not so much. I'm striving ...

SparkPoints: 26,308

Fitness Minutes: 14,000

My Goals:
5% Challenge Goals:

I will exercise for 30 minutes or more 5 days a week. I will combine running, spinning, weight training, and the dreaded Jillian Michaels.

I will track my food and use the WW Points Plus system.

I will log my exercise, weigh in weekly, and check in with my team regularly.

5%= 9 lbs.
Total Goal= 30 lbs.



My Program:
I need to learn to consistently eat right...no more low-carb, 4-day, or whatever diet to lose the weight. This has to be sustainable. Veggies are my friends, and cheese is NOT a food group. : ) I know these things, so now to apply them...consistently.

emoticon A great challenge this week, wouldn't you agree? I know one of the ways I'll be getting my freggies in is with a fruit & spinach smoothie several days this week. With another bout of snow expected mid-week, a bowls of low-sodium vegetable soup will be on the menu, too! What's your game plan?

Let's push for more success in the last week of the challenge. Together emoticon !

Have a sparkling week! -Bri emoticon

Hi Boo! Thank you so much for your comment on my blog! You're totally right - I went to the doctor and have exercise induced asthma - caused by allergies, so...exercise, like your sister-in-law. A couch potato's dream, right? : ) But there's medication for it, so all is well! Thanks again! : )
