Kicking the Munchie Monster in the Butt and getting real with food!
Thursday, April 16, 2009
Well I had to take a long look at myself after my last 1/2 Marathon was over ... And here it is :
I am Getting REAL with my food!
I have been about the same weight for almost 9 months now DANG it!! I have one person to blame ME!!
I workout and run a lot ...BUT then ..I eat pretty much all I want! I have been guilty off ice cream, pizza, breads and pastas and all that stuff is fine when you eat it in moderation. Well that once in a while had become a habit a weekly thing and some times more than once.
It is so funny what tricks the mid plays on you, how I would justify the food. I would tell myself "you run 20 miles a week and sometimes more, you go to the gym you can eat it" well If I ever want to get where I want as far as weight and getting rid of the gushy tummy then I need to STOP BS-ing myself. I have lost the same 10 pounds so many times in the last 9 months to have been at my goal 7 times already... Why do I blow it every time I get close? What am I afraid of? why? DO I feel safe at this weight? Do I hide in my weight? ...These are the questions I am dealing with right now!
SO I am on my 4th day of eating healthy and tracking! I feel really good, the bloat feeling is almost gone and I can tell a difference in my skin and well lets just say All over!
I also started Jillian Michael's 30 day shred and OK I can run 13.1 miles and not be as sore as I am right now. Today will be day # 3 on level 1 and my upper inner thighs are killing me! I love/ hate here LOL
So I decided to take measurements to keep track of it all.
My body type is an apple, I hold all the weight in my middle (tummy, back and inner thighs).... I am ready to work past this and get to my goals!
Not sure is I measured in the right places but here it is:
I am 5ft. 5 inch with shoes lol
right arm(around bic.) 11 1/2
left arm (around bic.) 11 3/4
waist (above belly button) 35
left thigh (upper) 22
right thigh (upper) 22
left calf 14 3/4
right 14 3/4
I need to be accountable for every bit of food!!!
I also have not weighed in weeks so on Friday I will weigh in **scary
