I'm still here, still alive, kicking and looking everyday for a way to stick with a program.
I'm pretty much at that "begin again" stage: Weight is 235, fitness levels in the tank. There are a few positives though. I've recently started a new job (yes again!) and the hours/location have lent themselves to hitting the gym early, on the way to work. I made it to the gym three times last week! The other interesting thing is that I ride public transit to work, and there isn't anyplace to 'eat out' nearby. This means I have to plan my meals and pack a lunch every day. As I've known for years, planning my food is one of the biggest facilitators to weight loss for me. So I have this amazing triple bonus of a new job that I really like and the means and modivation to eat well and excercise. Imagine that!
Oh! I we have a new dog. A dog that has to be walked every morning before we go to work. So, I take the morning shift and today I went for my run during my 'dog walking' time. I was getting up anyway, why not take advantage of the time? So, today I've already run 2.75 miles, did a leg workout and had an OP (on plan) day food wise! And it's been easy!
