No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
I can't seem to find time to get on here. I wish there was an app or something. I have been loosing the same 5lbs so I finally joined WW. I didn't want to pay the $$$. I have been on it for a few weeks now with some limited success. You can definitely tell the weeks when I follow to the letter and the weeks where I believe "I got this" on my own. I lost the first 70lbs on my own so I try not to beat myself up on the attitude and just get back on track. I can't wait for this to be over so I can concentrate more fully on something else. I know I will always have to watch what I eat and exercise which is fine but currently I just feel like my attention is split in so many different directions it would be nice to let one go.
I have been trying different running shoes, and hence have been plagued with injures. Its driving me nuts. I almost actually broke down in tears yesterday. Thank goodness my husband is so supportive of this activity even though he doesn't participate himself. I have a big race coming up and I am not sure how it will go because my training has been interrupted so many times. I had been running a lot with friends so I suppose my training has already been interrupted. My inner voice is also confused I spend so much time with others I am not sure of my own ability anymore. Some think I can do it others think its suicide. I no longer know what to think. I know in the past month I have had my feelings hurt many times buy better, faster, stronger runners where before I did not care. I am sure everyone just wants to help. I had made a goal to spend more time running with other people to prevent burnout, but I think I went too far in the other direction. I need to find balance.
Because of all the injuries I have had to start swimming which I hate but I seem to be improving. A friend has taken the time to help me with it. My son has swimming lessons at the same time so its convenient. I also got a biking injury I think my seat was not adjusted right and now whenever I get on a bike my knee protests very vehemently! That does not help with my miles challenge for 2012! (2500) I am going to play around with it next week I am healing this week in the pool. Except Thursday/Friday/ maybe Wednesday when I promised to run with some new runners. See what I mean about not finding any balance? I need to get it together!
