Weigh-In Wednesday


Once again, I hit the 4 pound mark and totally fell apart.  The girls were at their grandparents' all weekend and Paul and I had a date night and then he went down to join them giving me some free time and I just overall have splurged over the last several days.  I haven't bothered to weigh-in but I'm sure I'm up a few pounds, if not all 4 or even more.

BUT.  As of today I am back on track.  I was planning on going to the gym when Paul gets home from work but it's nice enough outside that I'll probably just go for a run/walk.

Speaking of running, it was this time last year that I was training for my first 5K.  I ran the thing in early June and have since never run more than a mile and a half and since the fall I don't think I've run more than 5 or 6 minutes at a time without stopping to walk.  I want to do another 5K in November (our community has an annual Turkey Trot--it's nice and close and cheaper than some of the others) but I will totally need to build back up to being able to run a whole 3.1 miles.  I keep wanting to restart the couch-to-5K program but darn it, I want to lose some weight first.  I hate running at this weight.  It feels so gross.  I mean, there are lots of people way heavier than me who run just fine, but I just think it would be so much easier and more comfortable if I could lose some weight (one might think that running could be a good way to facilitate desired weight loss but one must also reduce one's caloric intake on more than just a few sporadic days here and there).  Anyway, at some point between now and early September I am going to start C25K again regardless of weight because I really do want to run that 5K in November.

Hi. I am a new reader. I agree that running long distances is difficult, especially if you aren't comfortable with your weight. I had my twin girls 11 months ago and even though I look thin, underneath the clothing I look and feel different. I have not attempted running yet. I get winded very easily these days. Good luck I hope you are able to get back into running and feel great about it!
