Week three of insanity w/ Shaun T & dh. Still digging deeper here.

Same problem here. I am trying to develop the mindset that this is a lifestyle change that I want to make.

Today I registered for my first half-marathon This will be by far the farthest I have ever attempted to run, so it will take some dedication on my part. I went jogging yesterday for the first time in about 30 days (eek!) and it was...an experience. I plan to be more committed in 2012.

I'm down a few pounds this week, but I'm not counting it- was sick most of the week with a stomach bug. I was really enjoying seeing the number on the scale drop, though. Tomorrow is one of my long training days Three classes between 5-8pm. I can't wait! I feel like a slacker because I did almost no training this past week (my stomach started acting up during my first class Monday, so the only other class I did was the mandatory tournament practice Wednesday- and it was an experience). I bought a couple new pairs of jeans on sale this week, knowing full well that I have another 10-15 pounds to go before I can wear them--incentive!!

Did another jog/walk today. Didn't really commit to the food diary, but skinny cow candy was on sale this week so when I have to snack, at least it's only 120 calories. I've also been eating a lot better overall.

Actually, I got my new jeans Monday and was pleasantly surprised- I was able to get the smaller size on and fastened. They weren't comfortable, but they were on, which was more than I expected- so I really probably only have 5-10 pounds to go to be able to wear them!

On that note, I have not been able to consistently get in the gym for about 3 weeks now. However I have been carefully watching my food intake. So I weighed myself today and I have lost 30 pounds since July! I am soooo excited bc I have been getting sooo caught up in not being to my goal weight yet that I have been forgetting to celebrate the small successes that I have accomplished along the way and a 30 pound weight loss is no small thing! So I am happy. I just need to get my butt back in the gym 5 days a week like I was doing so I can hit my goal weight before spring!
Hair Type: A head full of THICK, normal porosity curls/coils that I am TOTALLY in LUV with!
