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 pause...no 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!

  4. 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.
