Mostly this is me venting, but this is more for me and my journey than for all of you out there (although I do hope you enjoy it), so I'm being completely honest on these things.

So tonight I was on my treadmill for a full hour just listening to music and reading blogs on SP. Forty-five minutes in, I decided to jog for a minute at 4mph (not that fast...I think some people could probably walk that fast, but I can't). After watching Arthur running on BL last night, I thought, hey, if some guy who weighs 500 pounds can do it, I can too. Anyway, I got lost in my music, and when I looked down, and it had been three minutes, so I figure, hey, I'll go for five. The last 45 seconds were killer--probably because I was looking at the clock--but I made it.
"Vlog" tomorrow. (Sorry, I don't think I'll ever be able to take that word seriously.) I know you're all excited. HA!

Today was my fourth day in a row to work out...for at least 45 minutes, and for a whole hour yesterday! I can really feel myself getting back into exercising again, which feels really, really good. Tonight I figured I would take a break, but I actually wanted to get up and work out. I had actually burned a lot of calories throughout the day (walking to and from my car at the law school, which is a bit of a hike, going up and down the stairs because every other class is on a different floor), but I wanted more. It just feels really, really good.
Unrelatedly, I just found the fruit and veggie tracker. Sooooo helpful.

I haven't posted all weekend, but I weigh-in on Saturdays, and I lost nothing. Boo. I'm hoping it's because this is the first week I really started working out, because I know I had a calorie deficit every day, even days I went over my calorie goal. (It may also be because I wasn't eating enough...I thought I was in the 6-7 times my body weight range, but turns out, when you gain 50 pounds, you get to eat more calories. Who knew?)
Even worse, I STILL haven't lost anything. Actually, I've gained a pound. This is very frustrating, and it's taken a lot of work for me not to get depressed, give up and order a pizza. Hopefully I can keep up on my average rate at 2 lbs a week.
In other news, I've fired up my gowearfit and wore it last night while walking with Leslie Sansone (which, at least for me, is rather intense, yet low impact cardio), and I burned 500 calories in 45 minutes, just a bit more than SP estimated. Sweet!

So, I tend to be kind of a recluse, and one of the things I really want to start doing is being more outgoing and not letting my weight get in the way of me going and having fun and stuff. In that spirit, tonight I am going out with a few friends. We're going to dinner and then to another place for some drinks. Luckily, the restaurant had its menu online, so I was able to scope out what I am going to get (roasted chicken, potatoes and green beans...not too bad!), but I haven't had a DROP of alcohol in soooo long. Well, now that I think about it, I did try some coconut rum and diet pepsi over Christmas, but it was seriously a tiny, tiny sip. It was pretty good btw. Anyway, I stopped drinking alcohol because it has so many calories, but I think I'm going to have one drink tonight. I have about 1150 calories left for the day--I knew I would be going out--so hopefully the dinner and drink(s) don't put me over.
What worries me is that my weight has been pretty steady this week. So far I'm down less than a pound. Alcohol probably isn't the BEST thing, but peer pressure is a you-know-what. Tomorrow is my official weigh-in. Ugh. I really need to change that. Lol. Anyway, have a wonderful weekend everyone! And thanks for reading. :)
