The fight continues! So 2 years ago I went fitness and health crazy and lost 50lbs. What a difference 50lbs makes, it’s the difference between a great time and an eh time on the beach. I ran a full marathon, I ran 15Ks, 5ks, you name it. Eventually I lost the drive to just keep running. I started running to train for the the first full marathon. Then I loved it. Then more and more things got in the way, life etc.
I’d gained back 15 of the 50lbs by June of this year, then the other 10 from September to November after the incident.
So here I am 11 days into this fitness challenge that Jillian and I thought up, and I learned that I need outside motivation just as much as I need my own motivation. When I lost weight the first time. I had silent outside motivation. I’d promised my bestfriend if she ran a marathon. I’d sign up for the next years marathon. She completed it. I am a woman of my word so off I went. I ran in the rain, the cold, the heat, the fog. I ran like I was Forrest Gump. I don’t so much want to lose weight, but gain fitness. I want that back. The rest will come.
So as I sip my protein coffee hand my husband his breakfast smoothie, and put on my workout clothes to knock out an hour and some change of working out for today, I’m feeling different.
