BACK with new goals

Tuesday, April 07, 2015

When I stopped writing last, I was in the best shape of my life. I PR'd in several races. My weight was where I wanted it to be. My body fat percentage was awesome from eating late. I didn't need to track food as I could just use my body's perception of hunger to know how much I needed. Plus, I was burning a crazy amount of energy.

All of these wonderful things kind of caught up to me. I moved 500 miles. I made a major career change. I hurt my hip while moving, which kept me from running completely and minimized my lifting. I started a new medication, which made me miserable for a few months as my body adjusted to it. And in the meanwhile, I put on 30 lbs and gained two dress sizes.

I've been away from running since August, and my new goal is to try to go for a triathlon in July. I'm excited. Today is the day that I start. I also rejoined Weight Watchers with hopes to start getting my body to cooperate with me. My personal/professional life has settled down some as I've gotten used to my new surroundings. I've also started seeking counseling for my anxiety and I'm taking a medication for that, which is a tremendous help.

So...I'm back. And excited. Today is day number 1.

Goals: Triathlon in July.
Lose my 30 lbs.

And hopefully inspire others! :)

I'm nervous but excited to do my first leg day at the gym since August. I'm planning on lifting really light...just the bar...and just really watching my form.

Here I go!!! Please follow my progress...'cause there will be progress!!!
