In the past ten years I have been up (240) and down (135) the scale time and again. This time I am on the 'up' side of the scale. I want to loose the weight. I figure the humiliation of putting this on the internet and the friends that I have told of this to hold me accountable just might make this happen. It is going to take a lot of encouragement and support. Not to mention the hard work on my part. Follow my struggle here.

an up hill battle - literally and figuratively

What a week.

Last week I was unable to run during the week due to work stuff. I missed my weekly runs and was none to happy with missing them.

Friday I was laid off.

Friday after cleaning out my office I came home and went for a run. I went as far and as fast as I could. I needed to cleanse my mind and get some 'focus'. I took a hilly trail and I threw myself at that trail. I ran to a portion where the trail goes under the highway by way of foot bridge - what I didn't know is the foot bridge sways and vibrates due to the traffic overhead. I thought I was getting dizzy so I turned around and headed home.

I didn't sleep well that night. I got in about 2.5 hours sleep.

I had a 11 mile run scheduled the next day.

I managed 5.5 before I was exhausted - physically and emotionally.

I came home and crashed.

Since then my eating habits have been reckless - not bad, not good, no thinking behind them.

I am getting my miles in yes - but I need to get this bag of saltwater taffy away from me!

I read this post on moving 4 life and she hit the nail on the head. That is me that Shawn discribes.

Its time to refocus. I can do this.

I love that post.

FWIW, I'm struggling with a lot of the same things. I'm actually going to the gym more. Trying to divide it up into smaller doses (4-5 30-minute stints on the elliptical or treadmill a week, instead of hour-a-thons) so it'll be easier to swallow and stick to. But I can't seem to break myself of the junk food. I'm hoping now that I don't have derby to make me miserable, I can change that. But it's not going to be easy.
