Run went well.

Hey there,


How's the running coming along?


I love the costumes and period re-enactments you're involved in.  I' don't know anything about it, but it looks amazing.

Quick update.

I'm making good progress. From my highest weigh in of the last 12 months at 219lbs down to 191lbs.
Here is a comparison pic. Me on June 7th versus me today.

Another fly-by update.
Doing pretty well overall. I'm down to 187.4 lbs. The lowest I have been in a long, long time.

It has been a wee bit harder to maintain because life has been busy, but I am just trying to make good choices as far as my food and make sure that I am exercising regularly.
I don't think I'll hit my massive hope goal of being 165 by August 24th, but I'm good with that. My weight loss has been sensible and I feel like it has been done in a way that I'll be able to maintain it.
I'm happier, more energetic and, wonder of wonders, I can tie my shoes without getting out of breath because there is so much belly pushing against my lungs when I bend over.


I have lost about half the weight I need to and I can ALMOST comfortably wear the t-shirt that it was my goal to fit into comfortably.
So the progress is good and I am happy overall.

Have you tried strength training yet? The body weight exercises seem to be good and you will burn calories as you rest!

I do strength training twice a week right now. Tuesdays and Thursdays. And on the weekend I usually have some sort of hauling to do but nothing set.


I'm on the last week of my running program so my aim is that once I have officially completed it I will switch to running on Tuesdays and Thursdays and just keeping it at that twice a week 5k. 
On Monday, Wednesday and Friday I will do my strength training so that I can focus on more than just the upper body. (M- Upper body, W- Core and lower back, F-Upper body. The running and dancing I do takes care of the legs for now.)
That way I am not too overloaded but I am still getting good, solid workouts designed to keep me healthy and actually improve my performance in my hobbies and everyday life.

Nice! Keep it up! I hurt my lower so beginning the strength training will have to wait, although I am considering a personal trainer. I’ve had luck with them in the past.
