New Vlog and Weigh-In Update: AM I A RUNNER NOW?!?

Hello friends! First off I have to thank everyone who came forward to support me through my rough patch last week. If there’s one thing I know for sure about weight loss it’s that these bad weeks happen. The goal in managing them is having them only be weeks, and not letting them turn into bad months, bad years, or a bad life.

I’m happy to share that I got back on the proverbial horse and since the end of last week my food choices have been solid, I’v felt more in control, and I’ve gotten back into the swing of things with my activity. I’m still not rockin’ the cardio as much as maybe I should, but I’m putting in my best efforts, and that’s all I can really ask of myself!

In fact, last night I broke another personal record: I RAN A WHOLE MILE WITHOUT STOPPING!!! That’s a first, folks! I’m definitely feeling like running isn’t something I can say I “can’t do” any longer. I can run for over ten minutes at a time, and that’s amazing to me! Next goal is to run a 5k. I GOT THIS!

Next up, the weigh-in. I was very curious, this week, to see how my body dealt with my binge episodes and my return to activity. I like how my body approached it 🙂 Last week I weighed in at 186.0 lbs. This morning I weighed in at 182.8 lbs. That’s 3.2 lbs lost this week! Woot! That makes my total just a hair shy of a total of 90 lbs lost.

I’ll leave you with this video update. I talk a little more in it about my recovery from last week. And it’s a much more upbeat video than the last one, lol!

Happy Morning Smoothie Selfie

Greetings! Long time no see! Lots has been going on behind the scenes here, and about 90% of it is AWESOME. Phase 1 ended last Friday and today I go in for some testing. I’ll make sure to report back all my findings on Wednesday, and maybe I’ll get my act together and post a video about it as well. Until then, I’ll leave you with this ridiculous selfie of me enjoying my favorite green smoothie (6 oz Fage 0% Greek Yogurt, 42g baby spinach, 35g frozen mango, 30g banana, 120mL unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 1 Tbsp whole ground flaxseed meal, 1 Tbsp fiber supplement, 8g Greens & Reds supplement, ice)
