Progress

Today, I worked out twice! Yes, twice! My morning workout was with my training buddy, and we briskly walked some hilly trails at the local park. I jogged a couple of stretches, but the humidity this morning was just atrocious, and I couldn’t carry on with the jogging, because my breathing was so labored.

After studying a while at school, I decided to give it a go one more time at the indoor track on campus. Well, this was a huge difference! I can almost jog the entire track without stopping! I did some seriously long intervals where it was mostly jogging, and little recovery walks. I even threw in some hard sprints for good measure since I was feeling so good.

Progress is nice…

An about to be *former* fatty. I follow a Paleo nutrition way of eating, and have recently adopted an active lifestyle. At Christmas 2010, my mom took a picture of me, and I glanced at it. Just that glance triggered something in my brain (finally) that I had to get healthy, and quick! I had been to the doctor several times about irregular menstrual cycles, and I was having issues with my blood pressure before Christmas, so I had an idea that I had gotten very unhealthy. December 26th I began researching ways of eating online, and decided that Paleo was the way for me to go. It was either December 28th or 29th that I quit processed foods, and most carbs cold turkey. Then, over the next few weeks I weined myself off of grains, and milk entirely. Not long after that I quit most fruits, and only have fruit as an occasional treat now. Since the end of December, I have lost 40ish pounds (as of March 2011), and I am still losing. I decided a few weeks ago that I would train for a triathlon, and hope to compete in one before the end of the summer. I can't wait until I see what I look like in six months! This is so exciting!
