reinvest - day 7...less food in mouth!

Friday has started with me realizing that I am out right putting on too much weight. Crap, I really thought I could maintain my weight without counting calories everyday, but obviously I cannot. I went through a total panic attack this morning trying to find something that fit to wear to work. Everything was way too tight and I was at the point of just bursting out into tears and climbing back into bed. I know I have been “somewhat” working out, but not to the potential that I should be. It’s my fault I know it. I except responsibility for the extra pounds that like to hang out in my thighs. Ugh.

I know what I need to do

• Count my calories daily
• Pump up my workouts
• Workout 5-6 days a week
• No alcohol
• No sweets

So, tomorrow I will be back to counting and tracking my progress daily again. Working out harder and smarter. I think I will also start from the beginning of the C25K program. There just seems to be such a difference from running on a treadmill and running outside. I think that might help me more when it comes to running outside (breathing is just killing me). I will give it a try tonight when Meg and I go out.

I did have some exciting news – I am only $402 away from meeting my goal of raising $2300 to walk in the 3-Day Walk!! Can you believe it?!? I am shocked and touched by those who have donated or helped me with my fundraising. I couldn't have done this without the support and love from my family and friends.

I had to add in my horoscope for today, kind of fitting!

Libra (9/23-10/22)
Progress doesn't always move in a straight line. In fact, in order to reach to your ultimate goal, often you have to backtrack through territory you thought was well behind you so you can learn something you missed the first time around. Stressing out about lost time isn't worth the worry, though. Just sit back and enjoy the scenery -- after all, isn't that the point of life?

Oh Kate, sending you a hug and a big "You can do it!!" As for your horoscope...Isn't it funny how we go through life learning lessons and say to ourselves, "Yep, I've mastered that one." Only to have it reappear in the same form or another form further down the track. I suppose we have to trust that we'll 'get' all our lessons eventually! Enjoy your run tonight.
