Fresh Start Monday

Ok - the time for slacking off has come to an end.   I really let my diet slide while I was in marathon training.  So much so that I ended up gaining 12lbs during that time....eek.  And it wasn't in a pretty way.  

So, now I need to get back on track and today marks my fresh start on that. 

Today, I start tracking my food again

Today, I get back on the workout wagon again (tonight I start with my bike and Gossip Girl, again)

Today, Stop making excuses and just start doing it.

My goal?  To be at my goal weight by the end of the year.  That is 20lbs away so I have some work to do in the next 2 months.  I just want to be able to say that it took only two years to lose that 60lbs.  January marks the 2nd anniversary of my commitment to me and I'd like to be able to celebrate this year instead of looking at how far I still need to go.

BTW - it's 10:30 am and I think my stomach has started to eat itself.  Ah, how fun that first week always is...

and fair warning - if I start to feel myself making excuses to not try as hard - I may start posting all of my meals here...anything to keep me accountable.  But I'm not there yet...

  1. Yes, i also learned that marathon training does not equal weight loss :( I had 5lbs from having my youngest son that i never lost and i gained 5lbs while training. My goal is to lose this last 10 by Christmas--good luck to us both!
