I regularly charted my weight at the beginning of my weight loss/fitness journey in January 2010. I had to search my tumblr to find the site where I even charted my weight (caloriecount.about.com) and luckily accessed my account (username/password on the first try – BOOM).
My last entry was 7/4/12 – I weighed 177.2
I just went through my tumblr since then and added every weigh in I posted.
This is the result.
I have a lot of work to do. I hope you are here to cheer me on!
I started back on shakeology today thanks to a black market bag from a coach friend. I need to tighten up and a nutritious shake for breakfast is an easy way to start.
However I did forget how quickly Shakeology “moves through your system.” I pretty much ran to the bathroom as soon as I got to the office!
Run 5/71 went well yesterday. Went to my Joggers and Lagers group for the first time since early May. The motivation of other runners around helped me keep my speed up – averaged an 11:32/mi.
I also decided to do my long run at the beach this weekend. If I’m going to be sweaty anyway and have a bunch of crap to drag to the beach, might as well start my beach time with a run on the boardwalk and then lay out and play in the water to recover!
My employer sponsors lunch time yoga 2x which I go to as often as my schedule allows. I am making extra effort to go at least 1x week during marathon training.
Today for most of the class we did partner yoga. I’ve never done it before, but loved it. I ended up being paired with a lady who was 5 inches shorter than me, but still great. Stretches, balance poses, getting to go deeper in poses. Good stuff.
Not too shabby for just under 2 years of having my fitbit!
Marathon training kicked off last week. I got my 4 scheduled runs in, plus a yoga class, and a shit ton of walking at Busch Gardens.
I’m slowly re-finding my groove. I may be slow, average just under a 13 min/mi pace with walk breaks. I’m using the run 2-3 songs, walk 1 song strategy to build up endurance as well as acclimate again to the weather.
I have a lot of out of town weekend plans this summer, but I’m making plans to carve out “long run” time.
I talked with T over the weekend about how I need him to support me and my training. How I only want to drink 1x week and how I need to get my training runs in #noexcuses. So far so good – see yesterday’s post about him buying groceries and prepping breakfast while I was on my run, followed by a foot massage.
Had a solid 6 mile run this morning (4/71). Came back to breakfast and now a foot rub!
Yesterday I ran (2/71) at 8pm again to get in my 3 training miles. I was extra motivated by all the tumblr love you showed me yesterday, THANK YOU!
This morning I was supposed to get blood work to keep my low health insurance premium, so I fasted – which always makes me cranky. Get to the lab clinic and find out first I don’t have the right paperwork (false). I called my HR department a month ago to verify what I needed to do/bring since I had such a headache last year. I call HR and are told a bunch of noise. I plead with the receptionist who calls someone else at my HR dept who apparently HAS a brain. I find out since I got blood work last year I don’t need to do it again AND that the process I did last year isn’t even the same process for this year. WTF I CALLED ABOUT THIS IN MAY! So even though I fasted and wasted an hour, the good news is I didn’t have to have any blood taken and I get to keep my premium.
Today is run 3/71 – another 3 miles. Then I’m heading to Williamsburg VA to go to Busch Gardens tomorrow (we’ll see if mother nature lets that happen).
