STEP ONE:

Got on the scale this morning - 192.2 - That's a gain of 4.7 lbs from my Spring lowest  and not as terrible as I envisioned. I guess I could have done it sooner and saved some angst. A scale is just a box; providing just a number. I'm back to tracking and eating a higher protein (75-100 g) / lower carb (>100 g) / good fat kind of plan; which usually keeps me filled up. The trick will be in better planning nights out (like tonight) without alcohol getting the better of me...

My goal is to lose weight, strength train, and maintain a decent level of cardio. A 10K will be my longest distance from now on; the endurance stuff keeps me from losing weight and typically adds pounds.

We'll see how it goes.

I went for a pedicure/manicure yesterday afternoon. It was so nice to not worry about how long it would take and if I'd have time to fit it in... It was all my time yesterday. Today we're going to dinner and a concert for DH's 50th and tomorrow I head to the Cape for a day with my lady friends. This weekend I volunteer for PANMASS and Sunday I've signed up for YOGA 101 at a local studio. Busy, but worth the effort.

I need your planning skills! I find I am just rambling along these days and I am sure that is not helping.

That all sounds great! Esp the Yoga 101 - yay! Hope it's just the trick, and that you really enjoy your upcoming events.

I'm usually a "rambler" and a "maybe I'll..." while I sit at home wasting the day. This weekend I plan to be a "follow through-er"...

When I was training for a half marathon, I expected to lose a ton of weight with all those long runs, but I was surprised that I didn't lose any more weight from the long runs. It was disappointing! But I don't focus on long endurance runs anymore either.
