A new challenge

So, I signed up for IronWil's , to monitor my exercise and weightloss along with the other folks. I haven't figured out how we can interact or if we are even supposed to, but it's a nice initiative.

I will not write my food intake in that log since everytime I do, I tend to enter complete absurdity:
- "Did I just eat a medium or a small apple?"
- "How many calories are there in one mms??" Cue to my counting the number of mms in the bag and dividing the weight of the bag by that number etc... Yes it happened. Don't judge! ;-)

I started by walking along the route of my bus rather than taking it at the first stop. I inhaled all sorts of car fumes, second hand smoke etc... But it was still better than the bad BO I smelled in the bus. Now that we have a nice super modern tramway I've become rather spoilt when it comes to public transportation *sigh*

Well tomorrow it's Friday! Have a nice one if you're reading this!

Plodding... for real

Yes, I engaged in some plodding today. It was actually enjoyable,.... once it was over. No really, it was fun. I did a combination of walking and jogging (I can't really call this running...) and my feet didn't hurt. Hooray!!
So I will try to ease into it by not following any plan and just plod once a week. The other times I will do the usual workouts.
Still it was my first plodding attempt in more than a year...

You have to have goals!

I am going to run the Vincennes 5k in February (First Sunday)
Time to unzip the bear costume and do the couch 2 5K again!

weight: a lot but still less than 2006, the loss has just slowed down. I need to stop being satisfied with what I've already lost and keep plodding!
exercise: -
