I'm excited for the future for many reasons.
I'm back on track health wise. I've lost 2 pounds each of the past two weeks and I hope to continue that pattern for a while.
I also found out that I made it through the first round of decisions for my first real world job! Haven't gotten an interview yet, but had to send responses back to the search committee so that's something. Though I'm wondering if I should take down my 1 year blog that has before photos of me. I'm not embarrassed by the photos but I'm not sure how deep employers dig. I never say my last name on this site, but "Jan-Marie" is a unique enough name that who knows. What do you think? Should I take the pics down? I think it would make the blog less effective but who knows.
I'm really pumped for my half marathon in April. I'm only starting real training now, but I ran 2 miles with my boyfriend and barely broke a sweat! I could barely believe how easily I was breathing when we finished. I think I might actually survive the 13.1 miles! Haha
Also, I'm signing up for my school's Biggest Loser program. It's not a competition so much as you pay $35 and get access to a bunch of fitness classes and speakers this semester. They will also measure my starting and ending Body Fat with calipers so that will be an experience. I wish I had gotten my body fat information when I first started this journey because I'm almost certain at 275 pounds I had to have been around 40-45%. I'd ultimately like to be around 18% I think, but if I can lose 2% during this semester I will consider that a great accomplishment. Maybe I'll be able to set better goals once I'm measured.
Okay. I'm still drinking water and staying on track with food so yay for that.
