Hey Blog Fam,
I know I have been Missing in Action and I really do apologize for leaving my Blog Fam. without any rhyme or reason as to why. With my weight loss journey, all of the workouts, clean food shopping, preparing meals, handling things on the home front, working my J.O.B (Just over broke), keeping up with my Blog became like another job for me. I just felt overwhelmed with everything. So, I decided to stick with my workouts and stop Blogging about it. I hope you all can forgive me, I thought about you guys so often and hoped that all was going well on your Weight Loss Journey!
I have been still sticking to eating right and working out, I even stepped things up a notch with my workouts. I reevaluated things after the New Year rolled around and with all of the ups in downs in my weight, I’ve ONLY LOST 23lbs! To me that is horrible, 23lbs in a whole year?!?!?!?
So, I adjusted my weight loss to the correct number and have been struggling to keep the number moving down.
So, check this….my job started a Biggest Loser Contest, so around the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday’s I decided not to really worry about working out and watching what I ate because, I wanted to gain weight for the contest. BIG MISTAKE!!! Wrong thing to do!!!! Yes, I gained some weight maybe 6lbs over the 2 months. Not that bad right? Well, when the contest started in Jan I was losing my already gained pounds and it was steady week after week until I hit a plateau. I readjusted my workouts and eating habits and that number has kept going up. The last time I weighed in I was at 186lbs and that was on Jan 22, 2011. It is now May 16, 2011 and I am still up.
I started training for my first 5K run which is on Sunday the 22nd. I started the C25K program which was working out for me but, with all the snow we had in March and April really messed me up with my training. I had to resort to other workouts. I then got strep throat and was out for a week. I finally got over being sick and was back at it and then over did it one day and hurt my foot. I tried everything to get my foot right, I stopped running and rode the bike, I iced it, massaged it, I did NO RUNNING at all..after a week I tried running and reset my progress. So, 3 weeks later I started running again and my foot hurts a little after the run but, icing it always seems to help. But I was out of commission for 5 of the 9 weeks. So, now the 5K is here this Sunday and I am only on Week 6 starting tomorrow. L I went running with my girl on Sat and the park is only 2.5miles. I was struggling badly. It seems as if I ran better last summer without the training. I just might have to walk some of the race when I can’t run anymore.
I definitely will be doing the C25K training again because, I really enjoyed it and it wasn’t boring. I actually looked forward to doing it. How are my other runners out there doing? I was really hoping to shed some of this fat by running but, I will have to try again.
30 Day Shred- Level 1.
Beginning Weight May 16th = 191.6lbs
Goal Weight by July 16th= 179lbs
I know I have to push really hard but, I am taking no prisoners. This has gone on for too long! It’s time I buckle down and get a hold of this weight loss thing!
I have so much catching up to do and thank you guys for checking in on me during my hiatus! I hope all of you are doing well and will definitely catch up on your Blogs! Take care and Much Love!
