See. What had happened was...

I was supposed to start running January 4th. I even got new shoes. I don't particularly enjoy running until I hit the 3 mile mark...then I get the high so it's all good.

Problem is I'm not a great runner. I'm out of shape and haven't run in 5 yrs, but I do remember the high. It does not come naturally for me and I'm prone to shin splints. I have to concentrate to breathe right too. And I smoke. And I broke my hand. Moving it a lot still hurts so running is out.

But the cast comes off Monday, I hope. And since we are in the Ice Age of winter everything outside is on allergies. And I think I will quit smoking for Valentine's Day. So running should start soon.

In the meantime though, I am plased to tell you I lost 6lbs this week. No running. Sitting on my ass, mostly. This is the year folks. I will get to my goal!


  1. ALRIGHT! you go for it Girl! esp the stop smoking part.

  3. awesome keep up the good work...and stop smoking like jude said...:)

  4. 6 lbs in one week?!
    shit. I need your secret! perhaps I need new running shoes to just stare at, willing the lbs away? ;)

    and really- quitting smoking will get you a lot farther than running. rock on, sister!

  5. No secrets. Just better, smaller choices.

    Net/net I'm down 36lbs in all from when I started. Some weeks are better than others but the trend is all down making my average about 3 pounds a month.

  6. You can do it! So excited for you :)

    Fresh starts are fabulous!

  8. I would rather do ANY other form of exercise rather than run! More power to you!

  9. I'm not a runner either, I'm more of a fast walker. Do what feels right for you!

    And wonderful news on the weight loss. Way to go girl!
