New goals

Long time no post.  I am still struggling with blogging.  I don't know what to say, the words aren't coming to me these days.  But here goes....  I will start with a foot update.  I saw a great physiotherapist for 4 sessions.  He gave me some exercises to do which I have been faithfully sporadically doing.  He also treated it with ultrasound which seems to really help.  I have been given the go ahead to start running!  I ran about a third of a 5K on Thursday and it felt pretty good.  It's going to take awhile to get my cardio back but I'm pretty confident it won't take too long.  A guy I work with told me the body doesn't forget and I think he's right!  I hope so :-)  Onward and upward from here.  I want to keep running outside for as long as I can and then perhaps move inside to my treadmill or at the gym when the dreaded Saskatchewan Winter hits!  I just can't see myself running outside on the snow and ice.  I'm a self proclaimed "fair weather runner" but who knows! Of course I have been still doing Body Pump twice a week and walking as much as I can.  I would love to get to Yoga twice a week too but that hasn't been happening lately.  Something I need to work on.  Not letting anything stand in the way of the classes that I want to go to.  I have also signed up for a "virtual 5K" on September 16th.  I am hoping to be running the whole thing by then.  It is for a cool lady that I follow on Twitter - Dani.  She is having a 5K run for her 30th Birthday.  I think it's a great idea!  Her blog is also very inspiring.  She is a WW leader and a runner too.  Here is a link to her blog

Summer has been very hard for me to stay at  my goal weight.  Sadly I have gained a few pounds.  I'm not happy about it and I have not been back to WW for awhile.  This Friday coming up will be my last chance for August to weigh in.  It's just so hard for me to go there and be above my goal.  It's not even about the money, it's just that I feel like I have failed.  I keep thinking I will go when I've lost a few more lbs.  I really need to go and face the music!  I am not happy at this weight.  Even though it's only about 5 lbs above my goal it's too much.  Here's the thing, I really want to be under 160 lbs.  So I'm not going to change my WW goal but I'm changing MY personal goal to 159 lbs.  I'm going to try to check in here weekly and give a weekly weigh in result.  It's weird, I'm actually jealous of people that are in the "losing" stage of weight loss.  I know it sounds strange but I remember how great that was to be constantly going down and the feeling of success and empowerment of losing weight.  I also remember how hard it was in the end to get that scale to budge!  I know I'm going to have to work hard to do this but I'm up for the challenge.  I'm going to make a ticker for 10.8 lbs and put it on top of my blog.  My weight on Friday on my scale was 169.8 lbs.  Here goes the last 10 lbs!!  

the last 10 pounds bootcamp!  love this show ;-)

Glad you checked in, and that your foot is getting better. Nice going on getting back to running - you'll be able to run that entire 5K in September for sure! Oh, and I don't blame you for not wanting to run on snow and ice - I wouldn't want to, either. Scary!

I know it's only 5 pounds, but don't let that weight creep worked so hard to get it off and you deserve to have that thin body!
