Long overdue update

I have been quite busy with school, and training for my upcoming 5K.  My first 5K is this Saturday!! Today, I did 3.03 miles…only walked ~.35 miles of that. So, I am almost ready! I’m so excited! I never EVER thought I would love running like I do! This is such a huge change for me.

Besides running 3-4 days a week, I lift weights every Tuesday & Thursday.  I also supplement my running with some walking & some quality elliptical machine (cross training program) time.  I think I’m rounding it all out okay…

My weight loss has been slow but steady. I’m going to weigh again tomorrow morning to see where I’m at.

 

Back to my run this morning…I never expected that this morning would be a PR for me.  I had a very hard time waking up this morning…I slept very hard…so hard, I had bags underneath my eyes. lol  I stumbled around…got dressed…got my child off to school…drank a cup of coffee…then headed out to workout. It went so much better than I expected!  Perhaps I should sleep hard more often. lol

I’m still eating Paleo. Had an organic two egg, coconut milk omelet this morning once I got home.  I munched on a couple of banana chips during my run…just enough carbs to get me through.

My shower never felt so good this morning! lol

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!
