Here I grow....AGAIN

Monday, November 28, 2011

Well, as we reach the final part of 2011, I still have made no consistent progress. I am very discouraged but ready to try yet again. I have not been able to get back into Spark as I did a few years ago. When I was using this site daily, I had good success. But, I have been gone from here a while. I come in and out for a week or so at a time.
I really want to recommit myself to this site and on a journey. I am creeping and creeping up the scale. I started the the C25K running program again and I am up to week four. It is harder than the last time I did it and probably because of the extra twenty pounds I am carrying, but I am determined to make it through. My friend wants me to enter a 1/2 marathon with her, not sure that will happen but would like to work toward that goal. I am doing well with my three days of c25k, but we all know that 30 minutes of exercise, three days a week does not make a dent in this out of shape, overweight body! So...I am going to give this site my full attention for the next two weeks and then reevaluate at that time as to where I am going and what needs to be done. But devoting some consistent time to food and exercise and logging will hopefully show some positive success for me.
I know it is the holiday season and probably not the best time to decide to recommit but, work it not as busy for me this time of year and I have an extra day off here and there so it is a good time to get some exercise in with no excuses. Plus, it helps to keep from eating all the holiday cookies and treats.
So, here I go..wish me luck, tonight is w4d3 or is it w3d3, not sure, but I will find out tonight when I open the ipod. :) I have a lot to do tonight, planning some meals and getting myself in order for the week. Fingers crossed, I know my body can do it, but my mind is the one that gives me grief!

    You go!! I am and seem to have been in the same boat with you! I stopped tracking and have gained back all of the 20 pounds I lost a couple years ago. It is so frustrating and I know as I get older- it will get harder. I really want to stick with it everyday. Yesterday was the first day in a LONG time that I tracked and stayed within my calorie range. I'll be on here daily and hope to see you too. Good work with the workouts. WE CAN DO THIS!!!!
