Running down the Scale


I Run.

If you would have told me this four years ago, I would I have laughed at you.

If you would have told me this about five months ago, I would have chuckled. Running? My exercise of choice? Running, really? Over biking, or walking?

Yes.

I spent a hot summer trailing behind a friend of mine, who could go faster than me without even trying. Sweating in 98 degree heat, running, huffing and puffing.

See the thing is, for the first time in my life, weight began to fall off of me. I was on my parents diet (mostly), working, and running alot. I had never seen such good results...and trust me. I have been trying to loose weight for YEARS.

So, that is my little peace about running, will you come run with me?

Goal of the week: No cigarettes after drinking on Friday

I’m going to a party this Friday and I occasionally will partake in social smoking. My goal is to not smoke since my 5k is coming up soon.

70 days to drop weight until Christmas eve.

Need some motivation?
Buy a dress for Christmas that is one size or two sizes too small
Hang it up somewhere you will see it everyday
Throw away the receipt (that way there is not going back)
Alternate plan (for people who broke like me)
Find a few cute dresses online that you could afford in the future
Print out a picture of them, write the smaller dress size on the picture
Put away the money you would spend on food to save up for the dress

3 Tips for a Healthy Lunch

According to eatwell.com

  • 1. Vegetables

    Making vegetables the largest portion of your lunch boosts your lunch’s total nutrition (vegetables deliver disease-fighting phytochemicals and essential vitamins and minerals) and gives you a healthy dose of fiber—a must-have when you’re dieting. Why? Fiber helps you stay satisfied longer, plus research shows that upping your fiber intake may help promote weight loss. Find low-cal, high-fiber lunch recipes here.

  • 3. Whole-Wheat Bread

    Eating whole-wheat bread in place of refined white bread may help you trim your total body fat, as well as that much-hated belly bulge. A study in the Journal of Nutrition showed that people who ate about 3 servings of whole grains a day had about 2.4 percent less body fat and 3.6 percent less abdominal fat than those who ate barely any whole grains at all. Aim for at least three servings of whole grains daily (a slice of whole-wheat bread equals one serving). Other great sources: whole-grain cereal, oats, bulgur, quinoa and brown rice.
