some progress is better than none

Thursday, October 14, 2010

well, my first target date has come and gone, and i'm more than 10lbs over where i'd hoped to be. not happy about that. it would be easy to sink into despondency and trash-talking myself and, of course, eating.
but i've made enough positive changes that i'm not going there.
i'm keeping track of my calories taken in and burned, every day. this keeps me mindful, and it has become a source of encouragement rather than a gloomy set of shackles.
i've lost 10lbs, more or less. i did dip below 170 for one halcyon day but quickly sabotaged it. but i'm close.
best of all, i'm fitter and feel better. i ran my first 10K a couple of weeks ago, and in a time far better than anything i've done before. i will never be fleet, but i've surpassed my own base goal of just finishing, and finished respectably. i'm thinking about a half marathon next year.
so it's all very good. and lots of room for improvement so i can see some exciting progress as i move forward.
