I see it's been a few weeks since I last blogged, but as I sit here at 11:00 at night I suddenly got in a writing mood.
Here's an update on my weight loss progress. I set out a month ago to lose some weight this summer. It's really not going as good as I had hoped. Let me just say that when you turn 40 it really sucks that your body does not respond like it used to. It's not because I haven't tried, but in the last month I have only lost 4 pounds!!! I started out with the South Beach Diet plan and then the 17 day diet. Last time I checked there were about 30 days in a month. So it's been 30 days and all I've lost is 4 pounds?! Those diets officially suck!
I haven't given up though. While I have always loved walking I have decided to start jogging as well. I've never really been a fan of running, but I am desperate for something to help jump start my metabolism. I am proud to say that it's been 2 weeks and I am still at it. I started out at a mile and a half and have now added 2 miles of alternating walking with jogging. Surprisingly, I am enjoying my new fitness goal which is to eventually jog 3 miles and enter a 5k event possibly next spring.
A challenge I know I will face is when school starts back up in about a month. I know it will be so easy to get back into that routine and slack off on the exercising, but I am determined to keep it up. If there are any runners out there reading this feel free to send me some motivation every now and then. I'll really appreciate it!
