Just registered for my first 5K!!!

Hey all, sorry it has been so long since my last update I did have a weigh in last Thursday and my last recorded weight was 212 and I was not very excited to have only 2.6 lbs down. I did go down from 41 to 39 in body fat but still 2.6 ugh! I thought for sure I was having that time of the month or something that could have explained it but no! I am trying to focus on the positives, it is a loss!!!!

We did have quite a bit if excitement last week when I was watching the season premier of The Biggest Loser. There is a contestant from Orlando who was eliminated last week and as I was watching the segment of him at home I see my personal trainer Ron Betta training him!! I was so excited!! On our last meeting ron has challenged me to be under 200lbs in 2 weeks. This has given me alot of frustration. First I crunched the numbers with my bodybug and figured I needed to drop 6lbs a week and in order to do that I would need a daily deficit of 3000 calories. Whew, that is no joke! He suggested I try to burn 1000 calories in an hour and the closest I have come is 959 in 90 minutes. I also have started experiencing quite a bit of pain when running in my shins. arrggh! I do have positives though, some things are getting easier and I went down a dress size!!!

I thought maybe I should focus my energy on a short term fitness goal..... so I registered for my first 5K! My goal is to run this!!!! I will post my fundraising page as soon as I get it up, the cause is sucicide prevention.

I have also discovered tubokick and hiphop hustle and I absolutely love them! I love how great the music is at motivating me to keep going!!!

Love to everyone and be in good health!

    Just a day at a time.
