I once weighed 327 lbs. I decided to quit being unhappy and unhealthy and get a grip on life. I'm now in the 220-230's, still trying to figure it out and better myself. I run, lift, and crossfit, with everything else in-between. This blog is randomness, with possible incoherent attempts at humor... just keep scrolling. It'll be fine.
with my run today. Training called for a 10K - race pace… instead I gave a slow 3.8 miles. I don’t know what’s been going on with my legs the last couple days but they have felt shaky, weak and sore. I haven’t run since I did 4.5 miles Wed. night… so I don’t think it’s overuse. I did help my sister move yesterday, but they have been like this for the last few days. Possibly low potassium? I came home and ate banana regardless.
I would normally be more bummed about this (especially knowing mr-smit’r was out PRing a friggin half for his SW Virtual Race) [seriously, good job bro.] <we can’t be out bromanced, @tridad> but something awesome happened this morning so there’s not too much that can bring me down right now.
What happened? A milestone happened.
236.4 lbs. Over 60 lbs lost since April, over 90 lbs total loss since I started this journey at 327 lbs.
New progress pic: April when I was talked into my first 5k / Today, 3 weeks away from first half marathon.
Goal is to hit 220s before my half, Nov. 12th. (ME? 220s? WHAAA?)
Also - Zooey Deschanel is currently singing the National Anthem for the World Series game tonight. 0.o
EDIT: WTF, George Bush is throwing the first pitch… TO Nolan Ryan?
I weighed in this morning at 257 lbs.
That means I’m down 40 lbs since April 2011 (297 lbs).
Which also means a total loss of 70 lbs since I started my ‘journey to healthy’ in August 2009 (327 lbs).
This doesn’t give me a “I’m almost there” feeling/mentality… it gives me a “I want to go farther and harder” burning drive - like someone just threw the “Number 3” log in my runaway loco’s furnace (Back to the Future).
This made my day. I hope you find something, big or small, to make yours.
Then again, it is FRIDAY and there’s always that.
so here’s WIWTE (Thursday Edition).
258 even. I’m actually excited to do progress pictures and numbers at the end of Insanity this weekend… even tho I’m petrified of posting pics.
Oh well. Make it a good day, people.
