    Congrats on the weight loss and your commitment to C25K! Also, woohoo for your non-scale victory of going down in pant sizes!

IDEA - Day 22: Day of rest and contemplation

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

I took today off because my calf muscles weren't very happy with me. I don't know if it was the jogging or doing C25K Week three two days in a row; but, it wasn't a good time in my house this morning. I still packed up my gym bag like I might run, but by 10AM I knew I would neither have time for lunch nor be in physical shape to run.

So, when I did finally take a break from work today I took a walk through Market Square and got an ice cream cone. I still stayed within my calorie bounds, but it was a wonderful treat.

I'm currently reading the happiness project - a book about a woman's attempt at improving her happiness over the course of a year. Sometimes it grips me, sometimes I just have to skip entire chapters because they don't apply and that fact is kind of depressing.

To have my mopey moment for today - I can't say I'm the girl who will claim to love being single and profess that I don't want to date / be in a relationship. I just have no social skills and I'm shy in social situation. It terrifies me to go to bars or clubs or whatever. I just freeze up and shake.

As you can imagine it's hard to meet people that way.

Maybe when I'm down more pounds I'll have more confidence.


For now I'll be the lady with the dog and the house, it's cool.

One step at a time.

IDEA - Day 21: Feeling good!

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

Today was weekly weigh in day.

According to their scale I lost 1 pound.

I'm going to take my head off of the number right now because what really matters is just how productive and positive a day I had. I biked to work today and I felt so awesomely amazing. By the time I hit my desk I was ready to get things done!

I also biked to the study which made me sweaty and likely stinky - but, I like the exercise.

So, it's been a good day. Hopefully all this muscle will start burning fat any day now!

    I took your advice today and packed snacks for work every couple hours. It worked like a charm and you're right - it's nice to have something to look forward too. I was so used to getting ravenous before eating all day - no wonder I was making such bad decisions.

IDEA - Day 19-20: Trying to keep a positive outlook

Monday, July 09, 2012

Well, it's been a challenging last couple of days. I don't understand how one 'off' day from my 1200 calories can make two pounds magically turn back up. I'm hoping tomorrow I get on the scale and things are back where they were on Saturday.

Things that went wrong this weekend:

1. I threw away my iPhone (Which I use as an iPod). Completely stupidly and accidentally
2. My dog ran away (to be caught by my brother, thank god)
3. Two pounds.
4. No mangoes
5. Angry ankle after run.

Today I went for my run and my calves as currently a bit sore, but not terribly so. Tomorrow I'm bringing my bike into work so I can bike to the Fat Kids club. I have a feeling I may get there faster than when I take the bus...

I'm trying to keep a positive attitude, I really am. Today I saw a woman who couldn't get on or off the bus without it 'kneeling' - when she got off she was in such bad shape she just sat on the curb panting. I felt so terrible for her. At the same time I have to be thankful that in spite of being overweight I'm not in pain or kept from running, biking, or walking. I'm thankful to be doing something about this before it's too late.

    Awesome idea! I like that, I always try to be more positive, be more carefree and less worrying things that I don't even have in control of :D

IDEA - Day 18: Old habits die hard

Sunday, July 08, 2012

For a very long time I had a few very bad habits. One of them I relived yesterday.

When I lived in my apartment my brother used to come over and visit and we would have what we lovingly called a smorgasbord. We'd go to the convenience store, get a million different kinds of candy and sit and eat and play video games for hours.

Yesterday we did it again.

I don't even know how to track all of it on my tracker.

Do I feel guilty? Sort of. Did I enjoy it? Kind of. Do I really want to do it again, no, not really. I woke up this morning with a craving for real food in the worst way. I think my body's used to the good stuff, not the empty stuff.

    I think this means you have made lots of progress, if you start craving real food!
