Today, I had plans to complete a 10K training run, a friend was joining me today. I got up early as planned, after an early bed time and a restless night. I drove to my friends house at 8 am, and we headed out to do laps on a route I have tracked as 3K, and she figured she would do 2 laps. I was planning to do 2 laps, and then 1 lap around what I know to be a 1K block near this 3K route. She did fabulous, we ran the first 6K in 45 minutes, I think she would have been faster, but I held her back with my slow pace today. After she headed home, I started on my 3rd lap, and finished that feeling strong, so instead of heading to do a lap around the 1K block, I decided to finish out with one more 3K lap, to complete a 12K training run and start off week 3 of my training program instead of week 2. It went very well, and I finished the full run in 96:39. It was a slow run for the second 6K, no friend to push me, and I was getting tired. I was just pleased to finish it at all, and feel like I am getting back to my routine. I had one episode of very mild dizziness, a huge improvement from my Friday run. Also, I have noticed a decrease in dizzy spells throughout the day today and yesterday, a great sign, but I have still had some dizziness, so I will see my doctor this week for sure. Anyway, I have tracked my food for today already, and tracked my run for calories. My deficit for today is 107 calories, and I am feeling strong. Looking forward to a productive, well balanced week of not overtraining, and not totally resting and indulging every food whim. I am interested to see my weigh in tomorrow morning, to see if I made any progress in November at all.

I have had it with this darn dizziness, the nasal spray is not helping at all. My own family doctor is on vacation, returning Monday, so I won't be able to consult with him until probably Tuesday or Wednesday. In the meantime, I have had it with this dizziness, and I am not going to let it hold me back anymore. I went for a 30 minute run today with one of my running buddies. It was tough, and I did experience dizziness, but nothing more than I have throughout the day, I didn't fall down or anything, it was just uncomfortable. I am going to keep running, get back to my routine, and tough it out. I have too much on the line to spend any more time on the couch watching my life pass me by!

One year ago today, I joined Sparkpeople. I didn't really start to use the website fully until January of 2009, but golly, it has really been a big part of the 30ish pounds I have lost since last November. So, Happy Sparkiversary to me today!

My goal for today was to be at 165 pounds. I weighed in at 163.2! Almost 2 pounds ahead. I am not going to get too excited though, because this is typical for me. I go gung-ho off the start of any new goal I set, and after a week or two, I falter and rebound. How am I going to make this time different? I am going to take it one day at a time, and give it everything I have got. I am anxious to see what shape my body will be when I reach my goal weight of 135 pounds. I am curious as to whether weight will come of in my breasts, and whether I will even need to have surgery to reduce them. I have decided that when I get to my goal weight, if I am a B cup (instead of the DD I am now), I will not feel the need to go through with the surgery, as that is the size I want to be. I got there before when I weighed 140 pounds, using Herbal Magic's program and supplements. Anyway, this curiosity is keeping me focused and I feel very driven.

I have had a great day today. I walked with my best friend for 1 hour this morning, did my 3K training run for 25 minutes right after that. Then, I came home, had a snack, realized it was lunch time, so ate lunch, then hopped on my stationary bike for 1 hour. I rested for about 20 minutes, and then did some high impact step aerobics for 45 minutes. That totals about 3 hours of cardio for the day, and a burn of over 1500 calories. I have eaten 1495 calories so far, and I am not feeling hungry. Do I sound like I am overdoing it? I don't want to hear that I am overdoing it, because I figured that if I burn 7000 calories a week, and stay in my calorie range for my BMR, that I will lose 2 pounds a week, and reach my goal by March 5. I am SOOOOOOOOOOOO impatient to lose these last 30 pounds. I don't want to burn out, but gosh, I have been trying to lose these 80 pounds for going on 3 years now! I have had it with losing weight, and want to start maintaining! I will do whatever it takes to finish this journey, the sooner the better!
