2nd Time Around

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

So I've been down this road before... and this will never go away... but it is time to lose weight again. I used MyFoodDiary a few years back to lose 80-90lbs, but gained about 40-50 back. So, it's time to lose some weight again because I want to be comfortable and energetic... and a big BIG goal for me is to do the Dirty Girl Mud Run and the Color Run. Both are noncompetitive and for all fitness levels, but right now, I just don't have a fitness level. I want to be able to at least jog a 5k before I sign up for one... and to do that, I not only need to learn how to run and jog, but I need to lose weight.
So far, I'm impressed with my discipline. I lost over 2lbs this week, and I even went out and drink a hefty amount of beer on Saturday at a concert! Ironically, I attribute all this success to my own laziness: I will actually skip eating something if I don't feel like entering it in the diary. hahaha. Only me! Well, here's to 35 more pounds off! Do you think I can lose 10 (or a jeans size) by Turkey Day? Wow! That'd be cool!

    Thanks guys! I had no idea anyone read or responded to my blog entry! :) I didn't get any notifications.
Anyway, as of last weigh in (Friday?) I DID lose that 10 pounds! :) I didn't actually get into another jeans size, but my clothes fit a lot looser. looser? A word?
I have been doing the Couch to 5k program with my boyfriend for about six weeks with the last week and a half crosstraining to hopefully get ahead of Thanksgiving gorging and laziness.
We repeated week 3 because my boyfriend had a setback after our vacation, and we are repeating Week 5 Day 1 today and Thursday because we are both just not ready to run that Week 5 Day 3 in particular.
Thanks again for reading!

    You can do it! Try the couch to 5k program or something similar! A few years ago I couldn't even jog 1/4 mile without stopping, and now I run 5-6 days a week. I didn't do any program, but I just kept at it and kept improving, and now I looooove to run.

    If you make small permanent changes you won't ever have to go down the "diet" road again. In other words, make a few lifestyle changes, to switch to healthy slim living, not just a diet. You can ABSOLUTELY do it!!
