Soooooo…..

This is happening … December 3 ….  who am I?!!!!  lol  I told my physical therapist … she said “Well - you’ll be out of here by then so go for it!”  Followed by “I’ll see you in January!”  lol

WIW - the “SERIOUSLY?!” edition

Seriously?!!  I do the right thing .. I watch what I eat … I count calories … I finally get off my lazy tucas … and I GAIN?!!!!  That is just soooo not fair!!  Okay so there was some SLIGHT indulgence over the long weekend but I still just wanna kick and scream and cry not fair!!!  sigh.  I hate my body!

Today’s weight:  124.4 … up .2 from last week.  I walked 3.1 today.  Tomorrow will be c25k week 2 day 3.  

Next week WILL be better!!  

Hugs tumblrs!

davidlamb:

It’s very hard to be your best when you continuously compare yourself to someone else. Recognize your ability, strength, and potential. Be you, nothing more and nothing less, but be the best YOU can be.

C25k - Week 2 - Day One

DONE!  :)

I have to admit, once I finish I feel it in my back.  Not pain … more like - hey old lady - what the heck are you doing to me?!!  But mentally and emotionally it feels so good that my brain is just like - hey back - shut up!!!

I want to build my distance back up so I’ve decided to do the walk/run cycles until I hit 3.1 miles.  Today it took me just under 38 minutes to get there.  Burned 257 calories.  Got on the scale … mistake!  That bugger is wacked!!  Just sayin …

Now I am showered and dressed and ready to chill-lax for a bit before doing some school work (and fyi - I HATE TAX STUFF!!)

Hope you all are enjoying your Labor Day weekend!!!

xoxo

Awwwww!!!  TY!!!

WIW - the hello - remember me? edition

Hi Everyone!!!  Hope everyone is well.  I’ve missed you all on my hiatus … truly.

I finally finally finally got the go ahead to start running again!!!  I have been warned (repeatedly and sternly) to take it slow, but on Monday I got permission to start c25k!!!  It was so hard to keep to just a minute.  What a difference from last November when it was “Seriously?!  Its only been 20 seconds?!!”

Right after the accident I was so scared of putting the weight back on that I was truly anal about my food and cried a bit over every .01 pound I gained.  But then summer fun slowly took over.  The last couple weeks I got lazy.  But now I can run again.  And I’ve had enough lazy time.  I am so ready to tumbl again and hope I am welcomed back with open arms!  :)

Today’s weigh in … 124.2.  Thats up about 6 1/2 pounds from the day before the accident.  For most of the summer I managed to keep it at about 120, but like I said … the last couple weeks I’ve been lazy.  So today we start fresh.

I did week 1, day 2 of c25k.  Covered 1.6 miles in my 20 minutes plus did a little walking after.  I’m not gonna lie - my back feels it.  I know I am going to have to take this slower than I want to.  But I also know I want to heal RIGHT so I will.  And in the mean time, E is right - weight loss is 90% what you eat.  So I’m gonna eat less and move more and lose these last 10 pounds once and for all!!

I can’t weight (he he) to check the dashboard and see what you’ve all been up to!!

Big missed you all hugs all around!!  xoxo

PS - I have kept up with the reading challenge and will add some of the books I’ve read over the summer.  In the last two weeks I’ve read 7 1/2 Nora Roberts books though and am totally addicted!! 

PPS - Can someone tell me how to work this thing?!!  Tumblr looks so different!!  lol

Why road Id bracelets are so important

Like everybody else I never thought it would happen to me but Thursday morning while walking to the loop where I run I was hit by a car. I don’t remember the accident itself but I know I was hit hard enough to be on the guys hood and thrown to the ground. The guy who hit me was arrested at the scene for DUI at 6:30 in the morning! My son was still in bed and I am so grateful I regained consciousness and was aware enough to tell the police he needed to be informed and to tell them who he should call. If I was killed or still unconscious he would have had no idea what happened. I am ordering my bracelet today so it’s here and ready to go in 4-6 weeks when I can run again. And yeah I amsoooooo bummed no running for 4-6 weeks when I am freaking 2.5 pounds from my goal!!! Ugh. I have a compression fracture in my back, stitches in my head, road rash freakin everwhere and bruises on body parts I didn’t even know I had! But I’m alive. And I’m not paralyzed and I’m not brain damaged (well no more so than before I was hit anyway lol). I’m going to try to concentrate on maintaining my weight and healing for now. But please everyone, get yourself a bracelet. Believe me, I never thought it would happen to me either but it did.

WIW - the Oh Em Gee edition!!!!!

OMG OMG OMG OMG!!!  I can’t stop saying it cuz I can’t stop thinking it!!!!  OMG!!!

117.6!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I HAVE LOST MORE THAN 50 POUNDS!!!!!!!!  THAT IS 2.6 POUNDS AWAY FROM MY GOAL!!!!!!! 

THE ONLY WAY I COULD BE HAPPIER RIGHT NOW IS IF SOMEONE PAID ME A QUARTER OF A MILLION DOLLARS FOR HAVING DONE IT!!!  ;-)

Now that stated, lol - I am going on vacation in 2 weeks and am gonna indulge a bit BUT I am going to still run and I am going to make healthier choices and I am not going to eat until I explode.  Therefore, the couple pounds I put on while away should come right off because I LOVE HOW HAPPY I AM RIGHT NOW!!!!  I COULD POTENTIALLY BE AT MY GOAL BY THE TIME I GO AWAY!!!!  Which would mean I lost a very healthy 53.5 pounds in 7 months. 

Today was supposed to be 8 miles. Thought I could handle that without water. I was wrong. This run weeks training will be repeated with a water break at the half way point next week. On a positive note, I walked for a minute 10 seconds at 5 miles and this time is only 30 seconds slower than my10k race time, so my pace is at least improving. :-)

Officially completed my first unofficial half marathon!!  I took 2 walk / water breaks ( one at 7 m one at 10.5 m ) that were 2-3 minutes each but I stopped the watch during those so that time is pure run time! I kept at an 11 min mile most of the time but those last two were slow and hard!  So proud of me right now!!!  :-)

WIW … the I’ll take that edition

121.2 … down 1 pound from last week … down 47.3 pounds total … I’ll take that!  :)

My eating has been less than stellar … again … lol.  I’m not sure why.  Maybe those last 10 pounds just aren’t THAT important to me because I feel so good right now.  Or maybe I’m sabotaging myself because I’m afraid of reaching my goal - afraid I’ll have lost the weight and then what?  Or afraid that I’ll have lost the weight and life won’t magically be perfect.  I don’t know why I’m doing it, but I am definitely cheating more lately.  A bite of this, a bit of that, a couple of these at 9 pm.  Nothing major but … well … I guess a little cheating is like being a little pregnant, right?!  I mean its one of those things where either you are or you aren’t! 

So that’s what’s up with me … how are you all doing on this lovely hump day?

So today I took a personal day…

… And did nothing but read all day!! Well I ran and showered and ate and emptied the dishwasher but other than that all I did was read!!! Awesome way to spend a rainy day! I read Suzannes diary for Nicholas and Sam’s letters to Jennifer Both by James Patterson Both really really quick easy feel good reads. That puts me at 40 out of 50 books read and the year isn’t even half over!! Look at me kicking butt on a challenge! ;-)

WIW - a little late …

I did weigh in yesterday, just didn’t get a chance to post …

122.2 … down a pound … I’ll take it!!  Down 46.3 pounds total … just over 7 to go until my goal!!

NSV - PR’d my 5k time today … did it in just over 28 minutes!

Hope you all have a really totally completely awesome Thursday tumblrs!!!!

xoxo

PS - How’s everyone doing on the 50 book challenge?!!  I just finished book #38!  You can see what I’ve read so far here …
