Out From Hiding

I'm back out. I'm taking charge of my workouts and my weight and my eating habits.

I gained a little weight over New Years, but I'm back down to 152 with only 3 lbs left to go (and 19 days until our cruise!).

To ensure I shed those final 3 lbs, I've cut my calories to less than 1700 per day. This has been really hard, especially on my days off. But when I get hungry and want to eat a whole bag of chips, I try to step out of the moment and think of an alternative. Just 10 minutes ago, instead of eating a pizza, I made a strawberry and orange smoothie.

I did stairs on Monday before work. Yesterday, I went to the Y and ran on the treadmill for a bit. I'm going to ride on my trainer in a few minutes.

To help in my training, my parents bought me new shoes! My old shoes were a little too big and weren't running shoes, so they gave me blisters every time I ran for more than 10 minutes.

My new shoes are Brooks, which I've never tried before... but they feel great. Plus, they're my favorite color!


Oh a slightly less inspirational note, it's 4:30 and I'm still in my pajamas!

Hey, from what I can see in your side bar, you still dropped weight from new years! Sounds like a win to me!

You'll love your brooks. I remember when my little sister first got her Asics - she said "I feel like I could run for hours in these!"

You can do it! Look at what you've already accomplished!!! 3 lbs will be a piece of, er, well, cake. But it's carob cake made with organic applesauce and not oil. And no frosting. :)

Brooks are my alternative shoe to Asics. I run in Addictions and they're blue too. Better to match my political persuasion. (Your Guv is insane!)
