If you’ve been living under a rock for the past 2 years or, if you’ve … you know, had a life and not been reading my blog, I lost about 74lbs as of December 2010, and wow what a life change. It was hard, and hell, I felt like quitting at least once a week, but I knew it was completely mandatory for me to live a long(er) healthy, happy life.
So since December 2011, I’ve definitely fallen off the wagon. Not that I’ve gained it back or anything, but I fell off my regimen without ever having reached my goal weight…so I guess I unconsciously quit; sneaky little conscious you. I really didn’t mean to.
Now I just feel the pudge slightly coming back, it’s incredible how fat can come and go, but F that nonsense, I want to get it off for good and maintain.
Guilty? No, not so much. Why? Well because weight loss and a healthy lifestyle is just that… a LIFEstyle. It’s a day-to-day approach. I don’t want to be that hoolahoop dieter. I got my 74 off all-healthy and I’m taking a stand to look my best, reach the goal body I’ve always wished and envisioned, no matter how long it takes.
I went Monday night, and this morning and holy bajesus I struggled.
Running is hard. Should I like, pray for a little endurance and less wheezing?
Joking. I know I have to push myself, and thanks to the @mapmyrun app, I plan on doing just that by running longer and at a more consistence cadence everyday.

The woman can do no wrong. Although I seem a little hypocritical because she’s preaching bravery and instead of posting a pic of my chub I’m vowing to get rid of it. I’m past the point of insecurity though, so it’s ok. I think it’s fantastic and incredibly inspiring for everyone in the shoes I was in before the weight loss, or even worse; that was insecurity.
