Weigh in Day and Excuses, Excuses, Excuses....

That's right! It's weigh in day! Today my official weigh in weight is: 274.6 brining me to a total weight loss of.... ready?!..... 40.5lbs!! I can hardly believe that I have come this far! That is such a huge number that the concept of it just blows my mind. That is over 11% of my original weight!

Now for the excuses and, a promise to start again today:

Day 1 Week 2 (November 21, 2013)

Before the run:
I don't know what I think about two rest days. I think it makes it hard to want to start again. It could be the weather however. It's cold and and rainy and I don't really want to do this today, but I will. I will get my butt out there today after work and get it done. I'm also nervous about running for a longer time, I felt I could barely get through the minute of running.... we'll see how it goes. I know I can repeat a week, but I am trying not to do it unless I REALLY need to. It's not just the running, I'm frustrated about my weight going the wrong direction and I've been doing everything right. I will just keep going and hope the weight starts going down again soon.

After the run:
Well, that was a failure! I did half my run and then got a terrible cramp in the back of my left thigh as well as a nasty stitch in my right side. It's OK though, I walked the rest of the way back and am ready to redo this day. I will be a day behind in my training, but that's OK I will make this work!

Day 2 Week 2 Do-over Day! (November 25, 2013)

Before the run:
I should have run on Saturday but, we had a nasty wet winter storm come through and drop about 6 inches of the heavy white stuff and it just was not safe to be outside. So, I didn't run. I did get out and shovel the entire driveway and front walk and then played with my goofy dogs for about an hour in the snow. That means I am a few days behind today but, I will do this. It might be harder than it should be but I will not give up! It's still cold and I don't relish the idea of running in the cold but, I will get this done! I am not giving up!
