Hey, it's me!

It's cold here.
And super windy.
But that has nothing to do with this post! Just thought yall should know. It borders on refreshing... but then falters. I do love that I can wear my fav green sweatshirt.
I know some of yall are wondering where I am on my running and weight loss. Well, there hasn't been any running since spring and no loss. No surprise there has even been some gain! Okay, quite a bit of gain. Honestly it doesn't really bother me! I mean, it doesn't eat at me or fill me with guilt. It's not like I didn't know it was happening and I actually enjoyed it (the "eating anything" part) and didn't really care, only in that , I knew I could go back to running and Weight Watchers and take it back off.
So that is what I am doing! I started last Wednesday! I have run everyday but one so far. I walk on the treadmill 5-10 minutes and then run for 30 or more then walk 5-10 more. I get to 2-3 miles in that time. Not great speed yet. But I will step it up as I go! A friend and I are gonna do a 5K next spring to keep us motivated! I have to baby my back (had two surgeries...with long term complications.... long story).
I love the whole "points" thing on WW. I could do it on my own, but somehow tracking it online is handy and is some kind of accountability. So it works for me! So I joined online again. I don't go to meetings. I just use the web stuff. The have several programs, but I like the points tracker and have not tried the others!
Biggest Loser is starting off to be a good season! And a great motivation!
Stop back on Wednesday to hear my first weeks results!
So here we go yall! Let me know if you are jumping on the weight loss wagon too! We can chat!
My goal is to take off at least 22 lbs this time. Last time I took off 28 and gained back .....ummmm.......I can't say it..... lets just say...a lot ....but definitely not all of that.
Wednesdays will be my weigh-in day! The day after BL!
FYI: I am still eating Chocolate Twizzlers, but in great moderation. But thrilled that I can lose weight and still sneak them in! AND I am still eating very healthy along side them! Really I am! WW kind of makes you do that! Unhealthy stuff is just not worth the points! ha! Unless it's chocolate Twizzlers, of course.
Oh, and to those with whom I work, don't freak out! I will still bring tasty stuff to work! Trust me! But I also might try out some WW recipes on you without telling you! ha ha! You'll never know!!!

Good for you Beth!!! Let's talk about the 5K sometime....

You're beautiful inside and out!

Green is great on you! Hooray for the 5k next spring, that will be fantastic.

TCKK said...

Good for you! I need to get started again too. I'm working myself up to it. ;-)

I'm starting back on track, too. Does that good coupon I got in the mail work for the online tracking? That sounds like a good fit. Otherwise, I'll just try to be better about what I've been doing - it's working slowly but surely. Have a 25th class reunion to motivate me! :-)

I love green ... and I love you friend :)

Ok, I'm starting back, too. SlimFast seems to help me because I am VERY concious of how many calories I put in my body when I drink the stuff. I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one who side-tracked this summer. ;) We can do it!!

We are starting to get back on track. Got new batteries for the Wii, Mary Margaret is doing the Wii Fit right now as I sit on the couch, catching up on all the blogs. She's making me tired already.
