I'm sick of it!

Sick of it!

It's weighing me down; holding me back.


It's time I do something about it once and for all!

December 2007 I decided that something had to give. I was fat. I didn't like it. You can read the story here. But the cliff-notes version is: I decided to start boxing, eating right, then trained for a half marathon. From December 2007 through July 2009 I lost 40 pounds, the hard way. I didn't "diet", I didn't take pills, I just started eating healthier and exercising. My goal was 140 (meaning I had to lose 80 pounds). In the past year, I've lost 10 pounds. View my photo journal.



That's it?

I've proven that I can lose and maintain, so it's time for me to start losing again.

These last 30 pounds have been lingering...they are UNWANTED and most go now!

A few weeks ago I posted about the 6 week challenge. Well, due to some uncontrollable, and some controllable circumstances, I didn't stick to it 100%, so I'm starting from scratch. I've weighed myself and taken measurements so I can hopefully track my progress!

A rough schedule for the next 6 weeks*:
Sundays - push ups and core
Mondays - run and core
Tuesdays - run and core
Wednesdays - push ups and core
Thursdays - run and core
Fridays - push ups and core
Saturdays - long run

* The goal is 6 weeks...that's 42 then, I'm hoping it's a habit that I stick with forever.

My goal is to post at least once a week about the 6 week challenge to keep you all updated and keep me accountable!

Hope you all are having a great weekend!


  1. Good luck! It takes a lot of hard work and discipline.

  2. Good luck! You can do it!

    I have the hardest time with eating is so hard when you work out so much your hungry and I find that when I'm hungry is when I eat junk. Those last pounds always linger. Grrr....

  3. Keep it up! I have found that really focusing on eating well and cutting out sugar (not all of it, just most of it), even the hidden sugar in processed food was the thing that finally made the difference in my weight loss. Also, I just saw you are planning on running Chicago, we should plan a bloggy meetup!


What's on your mind?
