Two years ago, I embarked on a weight loss journey as part of my 40×40 list. I was eating better, working out, and even running. Running, you guys. I lost a total of 22 pounds in 6 months.
And today I weigh exactly the same as I did when I began.
Except, I’m still in much better shape than I was then. This isn’t exactly starting over — it’s just a bit of a reboot.
I have still avoided soda. I’ve still been eating 3 decent meals a day. And, I was still running, until it got far too cold to step outside. I ran Color Me Rad over the summer and Wine at the Line in October. And then I did nothing.
Wait. That’s not true — I did eat a lot of Halloween candy and Christmas cookies.
I finished off the last of my mom’s pecan brittle last night, so it’s time to do this again. I’m excited to be working with Mamavation on a new challenge, as an Omron Fitness ambassador. I’ll be participating in the fitness challenges, adjusting my meal plan, and tracking my progress each week.
I weighed in this morning, and it was ugly. I set a weight loss goal on our new Wii for the next 4 weeks, but my real goal is to get back into habits. I tend to let things go over the winter, because I like outdoor movement the most.
With the support of the Mamavation team and some awesome equipment from Omron Fitness — hello, strapless heart rate monitor; aren’t you gorgeous? — I’m excited for this kick in the pants during the coldest months to really get me going again.
And, I’m counting on you to keep me accountable!
Starting Weigh-In: 195 pounds
