Where I'm at, and what I want to accomplish.

Thursday, September 08, 2011

I lost 10 pounds while I was in Atlanta eating my vegetarian MIL's meal and in the portions she served. That restarted my fire to lose this weight. I only back to my LAST starting point. I have to realize when I relapse. I get bigger than I started before. I'm 251 at this morning's weigh in.
I met my caloric goals while I was in Atlanta, but I haven't met my calories yet in the past two days since I got home. My food scale is coming back out to make sure that I am recording my proportions correctly. I don't want to undereat, but I don't want to try to make it up and actually overeat.
My exercise. I'm walking a 5k for the last two days. It's been AMAZING weather. Highs in the 80s instead of the high 90s. I sweat a ton still. I did 3.6 miles in 82 minutes yesterday and 3.4 in 65 minutes today. I did a LOT more jogging today than I did yesterday and definitely feeling it on the chaffing legs. I also have a opened blister on the bottom of my foot that hurts like heck. My big goal is to jog a 5k without stopping to walk. My smaller immediate goal has been to do a 5k in 45 minutes. That was my time in high school. I was still overweight then, but I just want to get back to that.
This is what my dog looked like after today's walk. Must have been a good workout.
This is my time. I'm not going to be over 200 lbs by the time I turn 25 (Feb of 2013)

    Good job! That jogging will get much easier the longer you do it. Good to get control of your weight now, rather then later.
