Thanks to my new buddy Kelly, I've joined this cool site called OSB. Isn't their widget cute? I was hoping that reading it daily would spur me to get off my fat duff and get back into weight loss mode. The sight is very encouraging and each time I log in, I get a lovely dose of hard-core reality when I see the exact amount I have left to lose, staring me right back in the face. (And for those of you who want to click over there and see my number, I'll save you the time. It's 85 lbs. I know, I'm stunned too.)
So, I've decided that cruising OSB's blog isn't good enough to keep me motivated. I need your help. And your constant nagging. Yes, this is your free license to berate and keep me on track because I CAN'T DO THIS ALONE. Obviously.
Yesterday began my quest to begin fulfilling a dream of mine. The dream is to someday run a marathon. For now, I'm trying to run a 5k by Thanksgiving. You have to start somewhere, right? And so, I began the Couch to 5K program. I did my first workout yesterday and will follow it up with my second one today. My goal is to workout Mon-Fri and take the weekends off.
I'm also re-starting the 100 Pushup Challenge program. That will resume today. I was doing really well with this, when I just totally abandoned it a few weeks back.
And I'm working on getting the food under control. That's going to be (and has always been) my biggest problem. I'm starting with trying to wean myself of the sweets that I consume "en mass".
So, I mark my official weight this morning. No, I'm not sharing it. Way too embarrassing. Hopefully, I'll have some good news to report next week when I weigh in again. Keep me accountable!
