The Beginning of the End

Posted on

21 May 2010 – 222.6 pounds

I got on the scale this morning, and thought that I was just seeing things.  222.4!  But I’d kind of stumbled onto it, so I figured I’d better try it again…  222.6!  D’oh!  More like “Dough!”.

So here I am.  Blogging about my life, my weight, and how it affects me.  Don’t expect too much in the way of emotions — BUT I might just surprise you one day with a flood! 

I know what you’re thinking — who IS this chick?  Well, I’m kind of a wack-a-doodle (who likes to make up words).  I enjoy good food (whether or not it’s good for me) and yummy wines (Pinot Noir & Zinfandel are my faves [PS: not White Zinfandel — just Zinfandel]).  So, now you know what to bring when I have a party:  Good wine (nothing crappy, cause you might get it back some time). 

I’m hyper organized, unless I’m being a complete slob.  Go figure.  I can’t guarantee how frequently I’ll update this thing.  Hopefully once a day, but – then again, hopefully once a week.  I’d like this to document my weight-loss.  Hopefully you’ll find it funny, inspiring, and get some good tips out of it. 

So, you’re probably wondering what the heck I’m doing to lose weight — that that would be a good question…  Basically, up until right now, I’ve been “half-assing” it.  Which means I think about losing weight, and I want to do it, but I don’t commit to it.  So this is me. Committing.  (No, not being Committed — just Committing to focusing on my body & my lifestyle). 

  • Track food & exercise in Calorie King
    • Goal:  Get a Green check mark at least 5 times a week — overriding exercise calories to 0.
  • Train for the Nautica Malibu Triathlon on September 12. 
    • Goal:  Pool workouts – At least 4 per week
    • Goal:  Cycling – At least 1 ride per week, plus 1 spin class (or 2 rides outside, which would be preferable)
    • Goal:  Running – At least 4 miles 2 times per week
  • Lift weights at least 2x per week – once with a training group & a trainer, once on my own.
    • Goal:  In 6 weeks, do 10 “real” pushups.
  • Work with my therapist (how very LA of me) to figure out why it is that I self-sabbotage once I’m doing well, and stop it, dammit!

Had swim practice from noon to 1 PM today — it was “Fast Friday” which I think means that we just used our fins the whole time.  It was great, but I need to remember that I’m not as slow as I think I am, and I need to push myself.  Go up a lane (to be with faster people), and I might just get better at this.  I have been wanting to kick myself for not being better about swimming earlier — I LOVE it!  Hate running, so loving some sort of exercise is almost completely foreign to me!

Happy hour tonight at Ladyface Ale House — obs, beer is involved.  Might need to figure out a way to have a glass or 2 of wine — tops.  Friday night alcohol is one of my many weaknesses.  And then, I get weaker, since I have lowered my inhibitions, and want to eat something yummy…  Cross your fingers, kiddos!
