Taking it One Day at a Time

I am a 37 year old who has been through the cycle of losing and gaining weight multiple times. I am so sick and tired of it. I feel like I am ready to really change this time.

I have a pretty big motivation - not only to become more healthy for myself, but also to become more healthy for a last chance at possibly achieving one of my dearest dreams - having a child. I don't have much time left to make that happen, so it's do or die time.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I did the marathon on my treadmill for the very reason you thought-now mentally I know I've done it. It was a bit earlier than I wanted to do it, but this weekend the family was out of town so I knew I had the morning there all to myself and no interruptions, so I figured, "why not?" I was scheduled for 16 miles and also figured, "get to 16, get tired, stop. If not, keep going." Once I got to 21 I was telling myself, "sure you can quit now-nobody cares and you've passed your goal for the day," then a scene came on in Run Fat Boy Run about "don't be a quitter, Dennis" (the main character), so I figured, well if he doesn't quit, why should I?

Wow, thank you so much! I hope that you will check in and tell me how your HM training is going. A running group is a great idea. Training with others will keep you accountable and also help regulate your mileage. I found a trail running group in VA that I want to check out when we are settled. I have never joined anything like that, but it looks like a lot of fun!

Best of luck and thanks again for all your support!

I have a Polar RS400 heart rate monitor with the footpod. It connects to my shoe and sends data to the wrist unit about my pace and distance. It is pretty accurate--to about a tenth of a mile, but it bugs me because it eats batteries like crazy. A fresh battery tracks everything perfectly, but as it weakens, my pace will zero out several times during a run. And, of course, if my pace zeroes out, the calculator assumes I am standing still, so the distance comes up short. It drives me crazy! But other than that, it is a very cool tool and has added a lot to my running.
