Marathon training in session!

Hi! My name is Amanda. Thanks for stopping by my page! I am a first grade teacher and the cheerleading coach for my district. I try to stay very active, but struggle with my eating habits. I have really yo-yoed up and down on my weight. I lose weight, then I gain it back.

I ran my first half marathon November 20, 2011 and finished in 2:30:01!!! I am a runner. Never in my life did I think I would change my gymnast power muscles into endurance muscles. I LOVE running and it ...

I ran my first half marathon November 20, 2011 and finished in 2:30:01!!! I am a runner. Never in my life did I think I would change my gymnast power muscles into endurance muscles. I LOVE running and it is my definite out from everything. I am now training for my first ever MARATHON in November 2012!

Now it is time to start balancing this food thing! I am in limbo with the eating healthy/eating poorly cycle. I am trying my hardest to get in a healthy habit. I have started the Paleo lifestyle and I hope this helps me to balance things out. Through my journey I have learned that my body doesn't process grains or starches well at all, so the Paleo lifestyle seems to be a good match.

Here are my current goals and reward system I have come up with!

GOALS/REWARDS
155 - Pedicure (July 29)
150 - 30 min relax in bath with glass of red wine (Aug 19)
145 – 2 New shirts (Sept 9)
143 – New Belly Button Ring
140 – 2 pairs of jeans (I better need them after losing 17 lbs) (Oct 14)
139 – Sexy date with hubby
138 – Full spa pedicure with mom
137 – Sperry’s
136 – New sexy dress
135 – Full body massage! Reached goal!! (Hope to be here by Marathon in November) (November 18)

I SO FEEL YA on the whole carrying the weight in your lower body, thing!!! I do too! Seriously! My upper body and face was the first place the fat went away, then a lot of my mid section, and THEN my hips/thighs! It's frustrating.. just keep chugging along! I still carry the most fat on my body in my hips/butt and thighs and I'm guessing that would be the first place I would gain it back too.. just gotta stick with your program and sooner or later those thighs wont rub so much =] You should try adding those squeezes I've been doing as well! I swear since I've been doing them my ass has gotten tighter and higher! And I only do them like once or twice a week! =D

Your snowboarding sounds awesome and a lot of exercise...woohoo...go you....
I ahve been inadvertantly having a break from Eat to Live as well although didn't plan it....will be back on it tomorrow as I don't want to destroy what i have achieved in the last 2 weeks...
If I put on this week....which sadly I believe I will have then I am half out of one of the challenges I am in so can't afford to be totally out so will pull woolley head in and get right on track..... We can do this

Thanks for the comment on my picture :)
Yeah your are prob right, my face is really round lol, always has been and always will. My issue back a few months ago was I was undiagnosed with a thyroid condition, it caused a lot of swelling in my face and a bunch of other issues as well. So on top of just having a round face, and being over weight I had major swelling too, it was not fun lol. I'm glad I have it under control now.
Thanks for always sending me support you rule. Have a wonderful and healthy day :)
