A new me! (soon to come)

May 10, 2010

So the time has come for me to get super serious about losing weight.  I was doing beautifully while training for the half-marathon in Feb. but after that life got the best of me and I got bogged down with finishing up my last undergrad semester, finding a place to live and going to Ireland.  All of those were of course wonderful things, however they derailed me from my fitness/health goals and I am once again FAT. I realize that I am not much bigger than I was 3 months ago, but I feel like I have tripled in size and I am disgusted.  Do you ever get to that point in life where you are fed up with yourself?  Well I know that I do, and my friends express these feeling too.  So for the 487th time, I am getting serious about my health and dropping these LBS!!! First order of business is to get some food in my empty refrigerator… The poor thing must have been lonely all these weeks with only the condiments to hang out with. Next, re-establish my workout regimen.  I am beginning a 6 month training plan for another half-marathon in Nov. so this will help!

      Also, I have 2 separate weight loss contests going on with friends.  Margie and I are doing a “biggest loser” style contests for 3 months, and the loser has to fly to visit the other.  Katie and I are participating in the same type of competition, however the loser for that has to agree to be fixed up on a blind date with the person of the winner’s choosing. Scary! Both of these contests should provide the much needed motivation to get my act together.  

      My goal is to lose 50 lbs by January of 2011. I know that I can do it, and I realize that it will take a lot of hard work and dedication.  I have to do this for myself… I am not going to waste my 30’s being overweight and unhealthy.  It would be a shame to waste my “cute” years. 

      I will being to chronicle my meals for the week, starting this week, and  I will check in once a week with my weight loss.  Here we go…
