So here is a run down of what I have been doing since the first of the year when I made my SERIOUS vow to work hard at this weight loss thing: (I really mean it this time! REALLY!)
I have been on a low carb diet that consists of eggs and bacon for breakfast, salads with meat for lunch, and meat and veggies for dinner. It has not been easy and I have cheated a few times (shame on me!) but it is working. When I weighed in at the first of the year, I was at 175! WHOA! I am now at 167. I know, not much, but I will take an 8 pound loss.
I workout at least 5 days a week. I started the "Get Running" app on my iPhone and I am at week 3 right now. It calls for 1 1/2 minute runs and 3 minute runs. I did hit an all time high last night. I actually ran for 8 minutes straight and it was GREAT!!! I know now that I can do this and I will become a runner.
I also alternate between Jillian Michaels (or the devil as I like to call her) and Biggest Loser workouts (Bob is no better, he is Devil #2).
I have faith that I will get there, in time. My goal is 150 and it seems attainable now. More so, I want to be a runner to be healthy. The low carb thing will not last forever, but I am researching lots of low carb, low fat options to continue to make good choices in the future. I will get back in my fav jeans! :)
