Back Again

Monday, February 18, 2008

Today I finally was able to run a full mile at 4.0 mph. Which is slow, but good for me.

For the last 3 trips i've made to the gym, I couldn't run the full mile at that speed, last trip I ran almost a mile at 3.5.

Before those 3 trips, I hadn't been to the gym in weeks. WEEKS!!

Dont' know my weigh. My scale seems to have died.

I also am trying a weight lifting routine. Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday.
Each day will include the treadmill as well (i guess I feel comfy on it). Hopefully running a mile, walking .75 mile (w/some incline)

Mon, Wed, Fri, Sun - TaeBo also.

All sounds good.

Could probably make me lose weight if i stuck to it.

I have a problem with food. I believe i have BED. And that is embarassing to me. I dont talk about it. Because I"m sure people will think its in my head. I'll try to deal with it on my own.

But overall, it was a pretty good day. Coulda did better eating. But I'm on my way!

I guess, here I am! I weighed myself this morning. 245.2 lbs. Very upsetting.

I'm starting this because of 3 basic reasons.

#1 - I would like to conceive sometime in the future. My period is about 13-15 days late this month and still counting. When I looked up possible reasons, amongst stress & thyroid problems (which I've been tested) was "increase in weight". I've have an extreme increase in weight. Since I got married about 1 1/2 years ago, I've gained approx. 50-60 lbs. Thats an increase if I've ever seen one. I often find myself questioning how my husband could even find me the littlest bit attractive still. That may sound shallow? I dont know. But really, I'm not the same woman he married. Or the same woman he'd been with for 7 years before we got married. Weight does a lot to a person, I suppose. Not just physically, but emotionally...mentally. I really don't like myself, I'm sure that effects our relationships, even if indirectly.

#2 - I have a breathing 'issue'. Its really undiagnosised. I'm sick of going to the dr's about it. I have trouble getting a deep breath, randomly. Whether I've been at the gym working out, or just sitting on the couch. Lately it seems when I'm laying in bed its very bad. I wonder, is it getting so much worse because of my weight.

#3 - I suppose the most important reason, for myself. To make myself healthy. I can only imagine the stress I'm putting on my body to carry this much weight around. Reason #3 is simply stated...FOR HEALTH.

One of my goals is to journal daily, I'll try to post an actual blog journal entry once a week. That way if anyone is reading and has input they can offer it up! Cause I'm looking for all the help i can get!!
So i guess thats it for now. I'm excited to join this community!
