So this blog was originally created to track my resolution goal and to talk about what it is like to train for the NYC marathon.
I reached my resolution miles and I did talk about training for the NYC marathon and trained! So, done and done (even though race never happened).
Since the storm, I have pretty much stopped working out, gone to Ireland, had four Thanksgivings. Needless to say my body is, um, wider ha! I gained 9lbs since all of this and lost two so far this week, so net about 7lbs up. Seven pounds isn't much, but I feel more tired and I wasn't at a great weight before I gained. Yes I was running like a mad woman, but I was still overweight.
So, this blog/diary will shift focuses to me trying to lose the pounds, a new resolution and training for the 2013 NYC Marathon!
Right now I'm going to focus on losing major poundage. I am heavy, way too heavy! I am weighing in with one of my besties every Monday so I will put it out there for all of you as well. It's about accountability right, right? So below are my stats as of this Monday, I know I lost two already, but I won't make it official until Monday, weekends are usually horrible for me!
As of 11.26.2012
Current Weight 179
Goal Weight 150
I will add loss/gains starting Monday.
Now, lets talk exercise. I want to join a gym or kickboxing but I am hesitant because of $$$. I'm saving for a wedding and I know that starting March I'll start running again, so I'm not sure if I want to spend the loot for a couple of months. I talked to B and we discussed doing something together, but I doubt I can count on him for exercise. I love my fiancee, but he gets into exercise then gets out just as fast. I can't think of doing something together, because then I will shift my mind that we HAVE to do it together and then give myself an excuse not to go when he decides he doesn't want to go. I can get him to walk though. Walk and talk. So for now, until I figure out another plan, my exercise will be walking at night, lifting at home and doing yoga booty dvds :)
