Welcome ICLWers!

I appreciate you stopping by! 

As you may have guessed by my title, this blog was created because I am getting too fat for my liking.

I am 33 years old and I feel like I weigh a ton.  Literally.  I am almost 200 pounds and though I really don’t think I look  quite that large, there are times when I feel that large.

How did they know?


Anyway, I have decided to take up running, but as usual, the Queen of Procrastination has reared her slow moving head and has taken over my will.  It took her a while, but she got there.  Well, that and I have been fighting a stint of depression and stress.  Yes, I know that exercise helps to alleviate depression and stress by releasing endorphins.  But that ain’t enough to get me going yet.  I am going to take this weekend and regroup – tackling the days one at a time so that I can have a fresh start on Monday. 

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not *not* going to do anything this weekend.  I fully intend on going for at least one brisk walk.  Possibly mixing it up some running, but I’m not going to go into working my ass off training mode until Monday, when I hope to have a better diet planned for the week.  Eating fast food every day is soooo not helping, and I know it!  (It can also be pretty scary as Poor Lucky Me has noted.)

I desperately need to go food shopping. 

I am pretty excited to get going on this Couch to 5K program, though.  I may not be the fastest at my first race, but I won’t be the last!  And that is just fine with me! 

So, that’s a bit about me and my blog.  Again, thank you for visiting!  I welcome all complaints constructive criticism, so please do not hesitate to give some.  I will hopefully see you here again soon!



Insert Excuse Here

As you can see – there was no update to my Daily Mile button. I’m hanging my head in shame. I got suckered!

For the past couple of months, my husband has been driving me to and from work so that he could have the car to job hunt and go to school during the day. When he picked me up yesterday, he actually surprised me by taking me out for dinner. It was more because he didn’t want to cook than for any other reason, but it was still a sweet gesture. So, needless to say, we go out, have some food and a couple of drinks and enjoy each other’s company.

Unfortunately, buy the time we got home, the sky is dark, the air is frigid (there was actually *frost* on the ground this morning!), and I had absolutely no motivation to do anything but sit my fat arse in my chair in front of my computer, play a little World of Warcraft, and go to sleep.

I am still hanging my head in shame.

Why? Because tonight is already shot, and tomorrow night I have dinner plans with an old friend. I could get up early, but I have an appointment at 8:30am. And that is VERY early for me!

Yes, I know. It sounds like I am making excuses, but on a good note – a bunch of us from my office have agreed to walk a 5K in April. I would like to actually *run* it, but we’ll see how far I can get by then! I think I’ll be in decent shape by April. Running shape, that is.

I will also through out the ‘Friday Rest Day’ – since there is nothing to recover from, and get out there after work. Crap.. I think we’re driving down to Miami Friday night. This is just a *bad* week to start this stuff! Heh!
