A New Goal

Sometimes I look in the mirror and I see a fat girl. Sometimes I look in the mirror and see a skinny girl.  Not skinny in the sense of being a stick, but skinny compared to where I used to be.  When I see the fat girl, I ask myself "If I see myself as fat now, how fat was I really before?"  

My point is that I don't really think I'm done.  I think I do have to aim for 160 even if it takes a long time to get there.  I am at 170 right now, and I should be happy, and I am. . .sort of, but I really do want to keep going.  Yes, I am publicly admitting to weighing 170 pounds! Yes, I am somewhat embarrassed by it. However, when I look at where I was and compare it to where I am now, it really was a huge accomplishment.  So, I don't care if it takes a whole year, I am setting 160 as my new goal!


P.S. For the record, I'm 5'5".

Still Not Running

Still not running. I know, I know. . .The longer I wait, the harder it's going to be to restart. I have lost the weight that I put on in Vegas. It was not much, a pound or two, and may have just been bloating from the change in eating habits. I am officially down 54 pounds. 55 is so close, I can feel it! So why am I not running?

Well I can use all the excuses in the world but in the end it boils down to being busy and lazy.  Up until last weekend I was so tired I actually felt like I'd been drinking!  My new position at work has been mentally exhausting while I learn everything. On top of that, my kids' extracurricular activities have kept me super busy many evenings.  Physically though, my foot and shin feel well so I could run if I was determined.

For now I am not gaining weight and still losing it slowly so I will not fret too much. Once the pace settles down though I will definitely need to get my ass in gear again, or more specifically, my feet!
