This Weigh-in: 158.5 lbs.
Reality: Remember last March when I said I was restarting? Yeah. I posted that and promptly fell off that wagon. Because that’s what I’m doing in the first half of 2017. I’m not super proud.
To put it into perspective, by August of 2015, I weighed around 148. This August, if I stay on this path, I’m hanging out at 158. It’s just not what I want for myself. Can we go back to 2015 patterns? Can I go on that pneumonia diet again?
What Went Right: Mike and I joined a gym. I kicked and screamed, then went anyway. Since then, I’ve been actually enjoying it. I miss Marshall’s gym a lot, and thankfully, this one is kind of like it. I also signed up for a Virtual Race. That keeps me accountable because I can’t wear a t-shirt for a race I didn’t run and feel good about it. Ha! Because of this, I ran my fastest 5k ever. So that’s pretty darn good.
- Hit 150-152 by September 15th. This is one of my more aggressive goals for weight loss. I’ve lost more than that just in two months, but it doesn’t mean that it will be easy. But I’m gonna try.
- Continue going to the gym. At least 2-3 times a week.
- Yoga 2-3 times a week to keep from being a bunched up mass.
- Try the sauna again. Even though it scared the shit out of me. Dark, small, horribly hot room? I’m not a fan, at all. I started having irrational “gonna die in here” thoughts immediately. But I’ll give it another go.
