Under construction....

I lost 40 lbs when I started running 5 1/2 years ago. Pretty much just by running consistently and eating healthy foods. I started running to help with my TMJ. Running helps me in many ways and I pray I am healthy enough to do it for many many more years!
I have regained all of the weight of I lost, plus an extra 2 pounds! I could say it was all due to an injury, and that certainly played into my downward spiral. However, in order to move forward, I am owning ALL my choices, good, ...
I lost 40 lbs when I started running 5 1/2 years ago. Pretty much just by running consistently and eating healthy foods. I started running to help with my TMJ. Running helps me in many ways and I pray I am healthy enough to do it for many many more years!
I have regained all of the weight of I lost, plus an extra 2 pounds! I could say it was all due to an injury, and that certainly played into my downward spiral. However, in order to move forward, I am owning ALL my choices, good, bad and ugly, and leaving the past where it belongs.
As of April 2015 I am 213 lbs. I will work towards 160 lb knowing that eventually I'll get there. Even though I have ran many miles, including one full marathon in the last 3 years, I am starting running anew (due to two stress fractures on my tibia in Dec. 2012, then just laziness, anxiety, and depression, not to mention fear of re-injury). I pray that starting slowly will help me to avoid burn out and stay motivated.
The new battle will not just be weight loss, but also to combat the negative thinking patterns that seem to be ingrained. Breaking free is my goal this year! 2015 is my year to get this party RE-started! I'd love some support along the way! I'll do my best to encourage you towards your goals as well. Cheers to a new day, new blessings, and meeting our goals!

Thanks so much dear girl! It was a relaxing time at gym...not intense as chronic fatigue has flared up, so I'm trying to gauge myself to ease into things with balance..so I only wee bit of jogging (because I LOVE it) but know I can exercise still, but at a easier paced level. Hope you are doing well...oh I'll check out your blog! :) Happy wkend! emoticon emoticon

“Not to give up under any circumstances should be the motto of our life: we shall try again and again, and we are bound to succeed. There will be obstacles, but we have to defy them. So do not give up, do not give up!
Continue, continue! The goal is ahead of you. If you do not give up, you are bound to reach your destined goal.”
-Sri Chinmoy

Thank you for commenting on my blog "Bye Bye Glutens"

I feel so much better without the glutens, starches, and sugars. I still slip once in a while but I am trying emoticon
