I met with Kirk on Saturday for a quick weigh-in. Down 2 pounds. My first thought was “only 2?”
I need to work on realistic expectations. 2 pounds is 2 pounds. Once I finally snapped out of my funk I used the moment to refocus. Any positive change will be welcomed with open arms.
I also want to focus more on something I’ve heard as “non-scale victories.” I’ve noticed my confidence has flown through the roof. I have more energy. My clothes fit differently. I can see the changes in my face. My skin is clearer.
I’m going to stop being a brat and buckle down. No one is going to hand this to me on a silver platter. I have to work for it.

What started it off. Most notes of 2011 :)
Thanks for all the love, angels.
just be happy.
It’s been a little over 2 months since I’ve started working with Kirk. Overall I’ve lost about 5lbs. I also have reduced my body fat by 2%. While those aren’t quite as high as I’d like, the changes I’ve noticed in my general fitness have been pretty amazing. I push myself so much harder than before.
I ran the Egg Nog Jog 5k on Sunday. Overall I felt good. I ran with Liz because it was her first 5k. It’s always fun to sort of pay it forward with running. I always want my friends new to running to have a really positive first race experience.
Megan visited this weekend. It was really an eye opener for me in regard to how much we’ve grown apart. I’ve dedicated myself to living a healthy life and she has the same mindset we had in college. The food we ate this weekend didn’t even taste that great. Several times I kept thinking “My god, this is how we used to eat ALL THE TIME.”
I had a great session with Kirk last night and am going full speed this week to make up for the weekend and get back on track. Half-marathon training starts in a few weeks. I’m getting more and more excited as we get closer.
After not seeing any real progress for 2 months, I had a breakthrough last week. My usual training schedule was messed up so I worked out with Kirk on Saturday. We weighed in and I was down FOUR pounds. That seriously made my weekend.
Worked out last night with Kirk and Jessie tagged along. It was kind of nice to see her get her ass kicked. It’s validation that what I’m doing is really hard but totally worth it.
Also registered for the Lincoln Half last week. I’m slowly warming up to it. It will be a lot of work but I’m excited to see how much time I can shave off from last year.
