This is my schedule with some stupid exclamation points to make me excited when I really want to crawl back in bed and die.
This is my little corner where I have my running log and training schedule (that's also my Garmin cord that isn't plugged in so it will probably say "low battery" and then die on my next run).
When I was training for my half marathon back in March I actually started to gain weight in the end so this time I'm going to work really hard to keep my eating in check. Running makes me HUNGRY!!! I have a plan this time because I actually want to lose weight during training. Right now I weigh 213 (I know, gasp, I told you my weight and it's not a cute little number) and by the time I do the half marathon on November 21st I want to be at 200, that is goal #1. Goal #2 is to be around 180 by the marathon.
I know that weighing less will help me run faster but I also have another reason to lose the weight, I have a consult with a plastic surgeon. After losing weight I have a lot of excess skin so I need a tummy tuck and I might do something extra for me too.
Now, I want to mention that I'm all for you being happy with your body and I'm not saying you should go out and get plastic surgery but in my case I've worked really hard to lose the weight and I actually look worse now than I did when I weighed 260. So yeah, I'm doing this for me and it's kind of a big deal so I couldn't exactly not mention it on my blog.
I also wanted to tell you guys because when I hit 199.9 I'm probably going to throw a party or something. I was 204 all through high school, in college I briefly got down to 201 mostly because I was starving myself so I could afford my rent, so under 200 is a HUGE deal to me. I know I can do it, especially with all the great support I get here.
