I’m probably jinxing myself, but I’m gonna go public with my simple, petty little goals anyway. I know everyone cares and everyone is sitting on the edge of their seats, waiting for a new word from yours truly. 🙂 That would be me.
So this will be the first and last time I talk directly about jogging, weight loss and/or exercise on this blog. I started one just to keep myself accountable. I would absolutely love it! if you all joined me . . . I would even be open to making it a forum style blog to let others keep their updates there too . . . I would love it, I tell you!! So let me know if you’re interested . . . forum means there’s multiple authors.
Anyhoody. I have lost 50 lbs since the birth of my 2nd and last baby boy, Samuel
Ah, isn’t he cute!! . . . yeah, he’s not that little anymore at nearly 2 years old.
Ok, back on subject. I got big when I was pregnant, with both boys . . . big. I told a mom in the nursery once that I had gained sooo much weight with my first and blah blah blah. She cut me off and was like “oh, me too . . . I totally understand . . . it took me awhile to get that extra 20 lbs off!”. I shut my mouth about it since then.
Alright that is even a little off subject.
I need motivation to take off the next, and last, 20 lbs! So my friend, K, and I are going to do a 5K in the fall . . . well, fall is nearly here . . . if you didn’t notice. The Canadian Maples outside my back window . . . yeah, they have a couple of red leaves already . . . they’re turning!
Anyhoo . . . fall, as in September. I have less than a month and I only push out 2 strong miles before wanting to go home and take a hot shower and curl in a ball of sore muscles and fatigue. Granted I make myself run the whole 2 miles at once and then walk a couple of miles . . . so the mileage is there, just not the jogging the whole of it. And that 2 strong miles is not everyday . . . its twice a week, mixed in with 6 days of mushy walk/jogging.
SO . . . there is a point . . . not a very interesting one, but still a point to all this rambling about jogging and goals attained and goals being made blah blah blah.
I want to be able to jog, strong, 3.5 miles (I’m aware a 5K is approximately 3.1 or something like that) by the time September 15th rolls around. Is this possible . . . I think a diet is in order as well. 🙂
So I will be updating this particular goal . . . especially after a day off . . . today, today was my day off. I allow for lots of sugar inhalation and lethargy. Back at it tomorrow . . . and it’ll hurt after the icecream I managed to down this evening. Sugar does that. 🙂
Wow, I’m boring myself so I’m going to wrap it up.
I love feeling stronger, which jogging does . . . I love the feel of the open road, etc, which jogging allows . . . but ultimately I wanna lose this last 20 lbs so I can enjoy the above even more. Not to mention looking better in my clothes. 🙂
Alright already . . . I’m ending this. Please please please . . . feel free to join me at Run Stacy Run, fat girl running .
See ya there!
