We have a Plan
Last week I was having a little pity party for myself because I'd had a bad few weeks and gained back most of the weight I'd lost. I had been feeling bored and lonely lately which lead me to overeat. I felt like I was working my butt off working out, but was stalled out in terms of running and fitness.
And then I got to thinking about it this weekend. I was making a classic mistake. I don't think I could phrase it better than Albert Einstein, so I'll just steal his words.....
To get myself out of this rut I need to change something. But unlike I've done it the past, I can't just say "I want to change." I need to force myself to clearly define what I want to change and exactly how I want to change it.
So with the hope of publicly shaming myself into following through with these goals I am making them public.
Weight Loss: Lose 5 lbs by Thanksgiving
Fitness: Complete the first month of marathon training while building strength and staying injury free.
Personal: Find a new social activity and make a new friend
Weeks 1 & 2
