A lot of hard work

So we are planning on signing up for the 10K through LB's office, which leads to even more motivation to be able to run it in a decent amount of time.  The last week I haven't done to much running but have been working on "endurance."   Which translates to the depression has be difficult and spending a couple hours in the gym leads to a happier me, although a much sorer me.  Today was a rest day, but Friday was 1 hour on the elliptical burning 600 calories and 1 hour on the treadmill burning 400 calories.  I am so sore today, but I wasn't so grouchy.  My weight loss hasn't really been coming along that great, I am pretty stagnant.  This is due to the fact that I eat when I am depressed...not really what I want to have going on but comparatively to previous years at this time it is nothing.  I really wanted to hit 159 by my birthday, but unless a miracle takes place I don't think it will happen.  I have been leaving the scale alone, as it is a wee bit depressing to know how hard I've been working, and yet have been indulging in wonderful things like Thai food, Pink Bicycle, Pig, and Il Terrazzo...

  1. It seems we have some things in common. Let's help each other on this journey. Your dress is very similar to mine as well. :) I am glad you found my blog. :) Your a lot closer to your goal than I am mine, but I'm going to get there this year. I have to believe that in order to get through the depression cycles.
