Let’s try this again…

Posted on: January 24, 2012

6 months!!! That is how long it has been since I jumped off the wagon and ran as far away from that sucker as I could go. Well, I didn’t really run. More like a leisurely walk in the opposite direction stopping at every diner and donut shop along the way.

I booked our reservations for the beach yesterday, and decided it was time to get in gear for that trip. Then, this morning I made the mistake of stepping on the scale for S&G’s to see where I was. Can you say HEART ATTACK!!?? I’ve never been a wispy gal, but I hung my head in shame and defeat when I saw that number.

I’m just going to say it. I am 5’3″ and the scale told me I weigh 190lbs. I have never weighed that much, even during 3 pregnancies. This.Is.Serious.

So, after my near death experience this morning I packed up Littlest and headed to a specialty running store in town. I really enjoyed going there and talking to someone about my physical needs (I have a crooked pelvis and minor scoliosis), trying on different types of shoes that matched my needs, and making an informed decision on the best product for me. I can honestly say that I never knew sneakers could feel like that, and I am actually excited to get my new, pink Brooks Ghost 4 shoes in!!!

So, what now?? First, i just cant do this alone. Ive tried, and it always goes okay for a while and then slips away. So, I’m going to read a book called Made to Crave by Lysa Terkhurst, and use God’s power and love for me as my crutch. Second, I have 20 weeks to the beach. I have to kick up water big time since of course the Cherry Coke Zero found it’s way back. Realistically, I just want to be able to fit into the swim suite I already have instead of having to go buy a BIGGER one for the beach. If training goes well, I would also like to look into the Annual Turkey Trot, but I just found out it is a 5 mile run, not a 5K. Soooooo, I’ll keep thinking on that.

I also have to end the bedtime eating crap, which drives me craaaaaaaaazy!!! Right now my belly is yelling at me like the 2-year-old to give it some cookies!! So, must go to sleep, so I can get up and eat some Cinnamon Roll Frosted Mini Wheats Little Bites in the morning.

Nom, nom, nom…
