Streaking Through Day 71 and Finishing C25K training
Thursday, September 27, 2012
Today is day 71 of my spark streak of logging in and staying on track on Spark. Today I finished my C25K training for the 2nd time in my life. Last time I finished was 1 year ago and shortly after I was finished, my Dad passed away and I lost all of my motivation for everything in life.
Now fast forward 11 months. I am 7 pounds away from getting back to the weight I was when I finished the C25K last year. That sounds fine to me because I have taken off 15 pounds. I am no longer depressed. I feel very energetic and am looking forward to keeping running about 3 times a week and perhaps going even farther than 5K. I haven't quite decided this. One thing I know for sure, my walks are a lot less strenuous and I am enjoying life a lot more these days.
My next big challenge is a short vacation next week. The challenge is going to be to stay on track, keep my streak alive, and to keep my eating in check. But this is the first time in my life that I am looking forward to the activities of our trip more than what food I am going to be eating.
