I ate a little bit more than I should have at dinner and then all I wanted was ice cream, avoided the ice cream but not so much 2 small muffins (homemade) and 2 scotch fingers and a kit kat. Ohh well it's done now and there is not much I can do about.
I weighed in today
Last weeks weigh 100.4 kgs
Todays weight 99.7
Loss 700 grams
But still 200 grams up on my start weight.
I do not get why the weight is holding on but I can not let it get to me. Goal is to stay off the scales until Monday. I will remeasure myself in a month as well and try my dress on. Lots of measures are way better than one. I am hoping ym jeans start to get lose soon, they are still fitting me well, I would love to get back into my size 12 jeans and clothes, I feel a lot better about myself when my tummy isn't this big.

Because ..... I WANT to run this half marathon and eating myself stupid wont help me get there. It is possibly the only logical thought process that I have had at times over the past week.
On another note, sleeping is soo important, last night I burst into tears about being tired and how tired I felt, then the fiance put me to bed. I was asleep by 9:30 pm and only woke up a few times. I feel a SH*T load better today and not as shattered. The other things I have realised is, I NEED to sleep its is actually as important as eating properly. So I am going to start making an effort to get myself into bed and ready before 9pm.
My run yesterday was awesome, yet again I feel I am running more and more, and I shaved a min off the time from Monday, same distance, so I am stoked. I want to run 6 - 7 min kms so I am hopefully on my way to do doing that.
Today is a rest day for me, I am not as sore today as I was on Tuesday so the body is getting used to all this. Hopefully that means it will start to move the weight, which I think is the reason why I have a bit of a tender knee, because I am too heavy ! Off dam weight to make this running stuff easier for me !!
Today we are going to the mall for dinner, I will stick to my calories there is no need not to.
I also have to decide what I am going to have as my treat this week, or if I am going to have a treat at all.

BUT the question for today is ...
Do I run as far as I can tonight for as long as I can 5 km max type thing. OR do I just move to week four of the C25km training and do jog 3 mins walk 90 secs, jog 5 mins walk 2.5 mins, jog 3 mins walk 90 secs the jog for 5 mins ....
Hmm I am a bit unsure what to do. Part of me feels like really going at it and anther parts knows the training is good for me and might help with my speed etc.
I am stoked to be nearly at the 4 weeks of this training as that is where a normally fall off or get sick. I am being soo careful not to get unwell and to take my vitamins and to eat good fats and things. I am hoping all of these things will add up and stay well while I train for this mammoth event.
I love running I love the freedom it seems to give me and the stress relief I seem to attain from it. Finally I feel back to myself and that I am settling into my life again as me. The only thing that will improve that is more running and my house being complete and "us" being able to live together, in our own space doing our own thing.
I have decided to just do the c25km week 4 training and keep at it.. as it will help me get faster etc and possibly not kill me etc in the process. Its a bit wet and windy today so I might have to run faster to stay warm etc hahaha I am joking I run as fast as I run.

My running is really coming along it is a mental battle but I am getting there with it. I ran a solid km yesterday as well as the c25km training of 3 mins x 4 blocks and then on and off over the last 1 km feeling proud of how far I have come in the past two weeks and where I am going to.
Rest day today which I need to do my strength training because that is a bit lagging behind and I might stretch out my legs.
LOVING Sunsweet dried mango packets = 70 calories and because they are in packets I dont eat the whole bag of them. WIN makes control easier for this girl if they are sealed away. They are my sweet treat at lunch and I am loving them.
Day is going well started on water bottle number three just now, so hoping to get to 4 bottles a day = 3 liters.

Current weight 100.4
Gain of 900 grams
My run tonight was great but I think I am getting fitter as I am not burning as many calories as I was last week even though I am covering the same distance and running more and more of the 5kms.
I feel really good and its awesome.
Pretty annoyed at the building company, last week I emailed them to tell them they had placed someone else's photos on our on line log in thing.. and today I go in and there are even more of this other peoples house. The fiance is fumming I am just like what more did you expect !!!
Honestly would recommend my builder any day of the week, he is a subbi to the building company but I would not build with Stonewood ever again!!
Ugh I am starting to get very tired at about 7pm each night I seem to have this issue when I start exercising with this and I have to manage it well or I am going to crash and burn yet again. I will take my iron pills tomorrow and my multi vitamins. Must look after myself.
Tomorrows food is all made and ready to go BUT I need to track it all.

I had an ok bike ride, the boy got sore burning legs. we havent been riding much in the past wee while and well he doesnt really exercise other than a bit of cricket practice so we rode 6km in 25 mins which was ok 177 calories burned.
This I posted on my facebook page earlier .... "Managing everything and getting myself back into running and being healthy has been interesting journey. Since 2008 I have worked on improving my life. I today, as I was on the 28th of January 2008 am committed to getting myself healthy. This week I have run 3 times eaten 1550 calories daily + my exercise burnt calorie. Tomorrows results will be interesting as so far this week I have gained 200 grams. Tomorrow brings week two of getting fit and healthy. I have 3 runs planned and a bike ride or two. I have committed to running even in the rain. ...."
I really do feel like this a another learning journey for me, my life has changed SO much In the past 2 years and well things are 100% different. So my weight loss journey has not been easy the past two years but now I feel is the time to get it all sorted and done and achieve one of my biggest goals. For some reason running 21.1 km really floats my boat and I can not wait to achieve it.
Tomorrow I have a run planned and have planned out all my food apart from dinner. Looking forward to getting my running up a bit more .. can not wait till a 5km is my small run.

I honestly think my weight is possibly just as stubborn as me !! It just won't move ! It went up on Tuesday and seems to be staying there. Ohh well I know I am doing the right thing. I possibly need more sleep though.
Planning doing c25km training tonight but we might have to sort the roof shout for the builders. If this happens ill run tomorrow morning instead.
Lunch today us sushi food is all sorted already, except dinner.

Which means not guilt and no beating one self up. I honestly believe that is how a little bit of a bad day turns into a bad week, month etc.
Wednesday, 16 October 2013
My goal for today is to ignore that number and focus on the changes I have made. I am exercising regularly and I am focused on my eating, its not 100% but honestly it should be able to be a bit hairy around the edges at times. I also need to focus on my treat for this week and decide what this is going to be.
I am looking forward to trying these pills and seeing if they help with move this weight and make my training for these runs easier.
C25km week 2 day 2 today !!

I managed my weight ok through 2012, it went up and down between 88-94 kgs. Things were ok and I was playing with it but not really trying as hard as was really needed or being as committed as I needed to be to shift it. I had burst at it and then weeks of just well plodding along. But in November 2012 I was 89 kgs and felt happy enough.
Then xmas came and went and my weight started to sky rocket and I was running and exercising. I felt unwell a lot and headed to the Dr, by this stage I had stabbing awful pains, my gallbladder was pretty cross and I had it removed urgently late february 2013. Since then I have had major issues with my weight. I have hit the 101.6 kg mark and freaked out and I have had the worst reflux of my life and been sent to a specialist. But in recent weeks it seems to have gone again and I have stopped taking my medication.
I now feel better about myself and again ready to kick this weight for once and for all while I train to run a half marathon on the 13th of April 2014. This is one of my personal goals I have not been able to achieve as yet.. this time.. its going to get done.
Today I weight 99.9 kgs, I wear a size 14 jean and a size 16 top. I am not comfortable this size.
My goal is to get to 75 - 80 kgs and be a size 12 top and bottom, I want to run a half marathon. I want to feel proud of myself and happy in my clothes.
So as of next week I start the coach to 5 km training ( already have completed week 1 day 1 & 2 this week) and I will continue running until I am a half marathon runner.
I have always achieved good weight loss when it is along side a an exercise goal. This goal is massive but it is on my bucket list. SO it will be done.
I have hunted down a training program and I will start that 12 weeks out ( so beginning of January) and between now and then I need to get to a 7-10km run distance.
Aswell as all of this I live with my inlaws while my house is being built and I am currently applying for jobs for next year.
Wish me luck.
I CAN DO THIS, I am capable of reaching my goals and dreams.
I am going to use myfitnesspal to track my calories (1500 a day) and map my run to track my runs. Aswell as wear my heart rate monitor while running.
Goal is to run 3 times a week and hopefully bike once a week with the Fiance.
As my training increases my goals will aswell.
This is the end goal: http://orewabeachhalfmarathon.com
