And I'm back!

Monday, January 14, 2013

From outer space.... Okay, just kidding. I'm back from my reprieve, I've been maintaining at around 130 for over a year now and I'm really ready to kick it into gear again to shed these last few pounds. I'll admit it - I haven't been counting calories or weighing/measuring food during my entire maintenance phase. I have not been focusing on weight loss at all, but instead, my running. I have been training for almost the entire time I've been maintaining during which time I have been focusing on eating to fuel, not to lose. I will say that while the number on the scale hasn't changed, I have seen my body change and have gotten down to a size 2 during this time. You do what works for your goals and that's what I've been doing, but I think I'm ready to kick these last pounds out the door. Therefore, I'm back to using my Sparkpeople fitness and nutrition trackers and no more not measuring! I don't exactly have a weight goal, because honestly I think if I got down to 120 I may be too skinny, but I do want to fit into all my size zero pants that I've bought! I've bought maybe 3 pairs that fit and just *almost* zip and my goal is to zip these comfortably. Actually I think one pair I couldn't quite get up over my hips, but they were on sale at the thrift store for $3 and SUPER cute, so I bought them anyways. :-$ Now that I have ran my full marathon (which you can read about here: epitomedemoi.blogspot.co
) and the Ragnar Relay in Florida (I will be posting blogs up about this one this week), I can focus more on running and workouts and eating for weight loss instead of optimal training circumstances. I did bounce up to between 132 and 133 after the holidays (actually I got up to 137 right before Mother Nature smacked me upside the head so I thought I had gained a lot more), but I'm not updating my weight tracker because I know that will be gone in the next week or two.
Anyhoo, I shall be around more these days since I will be using the trackers and getting back on track, you can catch up with everything I've been doing at my blog epitomedemoi.blogspot.co

See ya!

    I find your blog enlightening and inspirational. I want to get back into running, but I have to wait due to a foot injury. I feel as though I can learn so much from your approach, to life and running. Thanks for sharing. emoticon emoticon

    Thanks, everyone! And Meliva, a size zero is only in my vocabulary because I'm petite, I stretch up to a stance of 5'2. emoticon Too skinny however is a different story. I think you have more in your vocabulary than you know!

    emoticon I have bought several Cute Pairs of Jeans before they fit because they were on sale. They are DEFINITELY Great Motivators, LOL!! Two of them are now too big, but the last pair fits just RIGHT.

    emoticon Congratulations on Maintaining for over a Year, And Welcome Back!!

    Fitting comfortably into your jeans is a nice goal. I've been thinking that I need to make small achievable goals this time around. so, maybe I'll try the jeans fitting comfortably to start.
    Thanks and good luck
