Well it’s been almost a month and the good news is I’ve lost a few pounds but nothing to rock my world. I just have to keep telling myself I didn’t gain the weight overnight and I’m not going to lose it over night. It just is what it is.
I guess today I’m having a bit of a pity party. Why? Well several pictures of myself were posted on Facebook and I looked so much bigger than I feel!! Seriously. I’m not exaggerating No wonder people think I’m pregnant. I look it!! But here’s the kicker……..I don’t feel that big! I look in the mirror and I don’t feel like what I look like.
I have to admit those pictures broke my heart. So all I can do is keep fighting the good fight. Count the calories, exercise and make wiser choices.
Day 27 is for 11/10/12. I get behind on the weekends. I’m trying to be diligent about posting every day.

Just wanted to take moment to brag on my run. The weather was great, 45-ish and everything just felt great. Had a full moon with partly cloudy going on.
It’s always a weird feeling in the mornings when it’s still dark. It doesn’t feel like morning. And it doesn’t help that’s there’s all these small children waiting for the bus all blurry eyed.
Hopefully tomorrow will be just as nice. We’re having warmer days so the nights are not as cold but its not 70 degree mornings either. Am I getting old thinking about the weather in regards to my running?
So almost 2 years after the great fail of lifting my back is still stiff and achy. Some days I wake up and I feel great, others I have to slowly straighten up.
So I’m always looking for something to help. I’ve had it x-ray(ed) and yeah it’s not pretty but no bulging disk just stiffness. Well I’ve recently discovered “The Back Doctor.” Well, I need to back up and give you the full story:
1. I found this website and tried this routine. I like it the best and I feel a difference (click here)
2.Because I did not know what a McKenzie Press up was/is I found “The Back Doctor” here
3. Finally “The Back Doctor” led me to Dr. Stuart McGill at the University of Waterloo. I personally think it’s a great explanation.
Maybe something good will come of this. I personally am not fond of acting old nor do I want to feel old.
Yep I’ve made it four whole days. A little tired and exhausted but I’ve survived. Today was my hardest. I’m really tired and to be honest I could do some comfort food eating, but I’m not.
I had the opportunity to talk with a close friend/nutritionist today about my calorie requirement right now. I live my Bodymedia but I’m not crazy about the nutrition calculator/journal. It’s says I need over 2400 calories. I call B.S. on that one. That’s way too many. That’s a lot of food. I contacted them about this and they said they go based off of FDA standards. If that’s the case now I know why the U.S. is so obese! I digress….
Now that I got that handled I feel better about tomorrow. I have to admit I didn’t take the time to journal today. Life happened. That’s okay. I also think me being tired had a lot to do with it. Too mentally exhausted.
I’m ready for day 5. Bring it!
