And I'm back!

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
