Yes. I know it's been forever since I ratted myself out. I forgot for a while, then I was too tired to do it.
I have logged in to myfitnesspal.com for 147 days. I only missed one day when my phone crashed. I log all my food and exercise.
I am on Week 9 of Couch to 5K. I am running non-stop 30 minutes when it's warm. When it is cold, I am running 10 minutes, cough and retch for 2, run 10, and so on for 35 minutes... I have cold triggered asthma. It's not cooperating as Georgia decided to actually have a Fall.
I am planning to go back to skating and Chalene Johnson (TurboFire or Chalean Extreme Hybrid) after I wrap up the C25K. I really ought to register and run a 5K, but I think I will redo the program and run one when it gets warm in the spring. Hacking one's lung up at the finish line takes out a lot the personal pride.
I did not manage to do the in-line marathon. I didn't get to skate more when the kids went back to school, I actually lost time. It took Gabriel and myself a while to find the days' rhythm in our school day....but I am still consistently able to skate 10-20 miles. I will catch that another time, I guess. But I still love to skate, and my legs like it too!
Grand total of weight lost? 24 lbs. Seriously. I am stoked!
I am in my goal jeans, but they aren't comfortable to sit in yet, so I am still fighting for those. I am heavier than when I was skinny before Amelia's pregnancy, but I look better and feel better than I have since before even Gabriel. I feel like I got "me" back in the exercising! I'm emotionally in a much better place because of it.
I had to go out and buy church slacks because I've lost so much weight since this spring. It was actually a pleasure to try stuff on...that's been a LONG time.
I have not made a pre-packaged meal, other than my freebie Zatarain's Red Beans and Rice, since June. Well, and an occasional pizza, and even that, I try to make from scratch now. (We did buy corn dogs for Elise's birthday, and I had one when I was sewing Halloween costumes, 3 days later.) I cannot tell you how proud I am that we've gotten away from that.
This year has been a great year for me and my family. Good choices beget good choices. It's a nice discovery.
