A Long Overdue Update

It's time for a long overdue update.  I made my DietBet weigh-in, which was a month ago now.

It was getting closer and I still had a bit to lose.  I had been neither good nor bad during the weekend leading up to the weigh-in and I had two days left before I could weigh-in.  Those two days I ate great and stayed away from carbs for the most part.  I went for a jog both days and had great calorie deficits while still getting enough to feed my body, but I was still .4 of a pound over.  Thankfully DietBet gives you two days to weigh in so I continued the third day of eating great. There was no way I could jog for a third day so I put on my runners and went and rang my cousins doorbell and said let's go for a walk and off we went for a 5K walk!  I made my weigh-in just by the hair of my chinny-chin-chin!

Since then it had been a series of ups and downs.  For two weeks I jogged and walked and did fairly well with my foods.  Then my sister came to town with my baby nephews and I ate bad food and only managed one 5K walk that week.  This week I was supposed to get back to normal, but laziness won and I ate all the food that I wanted without a care.  

Problem: two weeks until my 5K and I am nowhere near ready.  Thankfully it is not a serious 5K!  This weekend there are heat warnings but I do hope to start "training" again soon.  This week I did do two lunch time yoga sessions, but that doesn't help with the running part.

Well, that's it for now.  I hope to be by soon with a good update, but I'm not making any promises.

Brief Update

It's amazing that I can let myself fuck up a week of great progress with two bad days because of PMS.  And to top it off I didn't get to go for my planned run as the weather was bad. I considered running in the rain, but the wind was quite a discouragement.  The weather today, kind of windy, no rain yet but it's coming.  However. . .[any men reading this should probably skip to the next paragraph]. . .I could probably go out for a run except day two (my first full day) is super heavy and my stomach is unpredictable so it's never wise to be far away from the house.  

Do I think I can get to 5k in seven weeks? Hell no!  I want to get to at least half plus a walk then the rest.  Big goal for me, I know, but I believe!

Maybe I should go for a run. . .LOL!
