Weekly update - Zero loss. At least I stopped gaining!
Exercise - Running 5 days & Upper body workout 2 days.
Food - I really need to focus here. Maybe I munch due to hunger & not just thoughtless munching.

After watching an episode of extreme weight loss on TV, a couple was working out 2 hours a day with Chris Powell. The husband stuck with the diet, the wife was closet eating. It was determined that she wasn't losing weight because of this over eating. Once she did stick to the… Continue

I started changing things up. I am continuing to run but since I was feeling fried I knew I needed to do something. Sunday was a 6 mile run. Monday Before work I ran 3.4 miles & after work I ran another 3.5 miles & after I did a 30 minute upper body work out. I held a fore arm plank for a full minute. I have not been able to do that for a while. This morning I ran 3.4 again, but tonight I took a break. I figured if I split up my running I will fall back into wanting to run. I am adding… Continue

I think I am getting burned out. I like what running has done for me. I look so much leaner. But I have been pushing myself & to be honest I am bored. I am not sure if it is due to the treadmill or what but I know I need to add in some resistance training. I was planning on joining a health club through the winter months to break up the running & get some much needed upper body work. Well, I never did that for many reasons. The most obvious one is my concern I would undo all the great… Continue

Food - Eating too much. Too much snacking.
Mood - Mad at myself for not overcoming this damn food addiction.
What the hell is it with me & food?? I cannot stop with the Goldfish crackers or other salty snacks. I think I can relate to the cravings a heroin addict has. At least I am consistent with exercise. I try really hard to NOT let the scale dictate my mood or self worth, but it… Continue

I have been using my foam roller this past week & think it will really be good. It does hurt, but I feel better afterward. I want to start a training plan. I found one for… Continue

Weight - Down 1.6 pounds. When it stays here or goes lower I will believe it is a loss vs. fluctuation.

Got up this morning & headed to Dunkin Donuts for a coffee & toasted bagel. I put pumpkin butter on mine. It is fat free & I like the flavor. It is basically pumpkin purée wth spices. I chose the sugar free. It was still chilly when we got to the park to get in our Sunday run. The first mile was tough, but i did warm up. Not sure how long we will be able to continue runnning outside. We got in 6 miles. Lucky for me, it has been a mild November. I signed up for the Turkey Trot. A 5… Continue
