Don't wanna go and jinx it, but.... feeling good! :)

Wednesday, September 04, 2013

Since last blog, last week was pretty much a loss when it comes to eating right and working out.
But, it was my boyfriend's birthday, and 3 day weekend, so we had a lot of fun and it was both expected and not really regretted. :)

On Monday, though, I did my first downtown community run in... I dont wanna think about how long! I did a 5 k in like 98 degree heat at 5:15 pm and it was freaking brutal, man, brutal. It took 37 minutes, so it was basically a 12 minute /mile pace. It was harder than my first ever run.
Bright side: I DID IT!!!
And: It can really only get easier from there, right???

(yup, Im seriously jinxinig myself in this one, lol)

So, I felt really good about starting the week like that.

Then, yesterday, I had thought about going swimming after work, but come 5 pm I was feeling STARVED, and it was raining, so I went home and made a seriously delicious veggies, chicken sausage, and pasta meal. I knew there was no way I was going to be able to do a run for several hours, SO, I went for a walk!
I walked 3 miles, for like 50 minutes or something. I know it wasn't a lot, BUT, it was 2 days in a row, and I feel REALLY AWESOME NOW, like, MAYBE I have this momentum thing starting to come back for me, finally??

So yeah. I'm jinxing shiz for real here. But, I feel good. Positive. Optimistic.

Some silver linings I have figured out: since I'm basically back at square one, it means that its super easy for me to have very challenging exercise sessions, right?
Which means, every little thing I do is impactful again!

My goal is to see this scale start to move. I've been at the exact same number for a long time now. I'd like to see some change there, and I think there is room for that! It could happen! YEA!

On Novemeber 2nd there is a costume party. It's pretty vain, but I'd like to feel more confident by then! Show some skin with the confidence I had 1 short year ago!

    I totally get the fear of jinxing it, but I think that because of your refreshed attitude AND the lovely short term deadline you have approaching (november comes fast!), you will be able to stay consistent.

    If you need another motivator-- you should see if you can still register for the blc. It's awesome and will make you check into sparks regularly.... I posted a blog about it not to long ago, but if you want the registration link, spmail me and I will mail it to you!

    Good job for busting out those 2 workouts!

    Oh, and yeah... I'd be all about losing weight for the costume party. Dressing up in costumes is one of the great pleasures of life. And looking cute while you do it is even better.

    Hope you keep your new streak going!
