So its been over 2 weeks since I lasted posted, alot has happened since then. Weight wise I have stayed the same, still no loss, but again no gain. I just need to find a balance to start losing again and need to figure out my workout schedule.
So life has started to get busy for me, I was able to find full time employment, no more unemployment $$ for me. I now get a full paycheck (I have money again, woohoo). Bad side to working is that my workout life is totally up in the air. I just need to figure out when is ther perfect time to go workout, is it at 5:30am (I am NOT a morning person) or is it after work at 7:30pm. I tried the after work routine and I felt wide awake after working out not too good when bedtime is 9:45pm (I was wide awake till 1am, not good when I need to get up early for work.) I tried this saturday (a non work-workday, still had to get up kinda early to ref (paintball tourney) it turned out okay, got up at 6:30am went for my 2 mile walk/run and came back got changed into paintball clothes and was off to the tourney. when I got home from the tournament (7pm) I was completely tired, too tired infact to really eat dinner and enjoy it. I fell asleep around 8pm that night and slept in till a little after noon on sunday. And the friday night before I went to bed at 10pm. So it wasnt a late night for me. So I am going to try it again either wednesday or thrusday this week to see if the double energy output was too much with the tourney after really working on my timed 2miles. at least wednesday/ thrusday is a long work day (10 hours of sitting) (i got lucky and I get to work 4-10 hour days, and then have a 3 day weekend every week) I will keep you guys posted (for those who actually read my blog) on my progress and see what I come up with.
I do need some new workout music, if anyone has some idea's.

Happy New Year

So I know I have not posted any updated in a long time. There was just nothing to post about. So a little update since its the new year and all. Weightloss has basically stayed the same 43 or 45 pounds lost (i cant remember the offical number). I have done a few new things I haven't in a very long time:
  • Full situps - I managed to do 10, its probably been like over 10+ years since I have been able to do any. 
  • Ran on the treadmill 100 meters at 6.0 - I think thats a first for me. 
  • Ran on the treadmill 300 meters at 4.0 - I don't think I have done that since jr. high. 
  • Stuck this long with an eating plan - if it was any other plan I would have totally cheated by now. So far I have stuck with it. 
I didn't lose 50 pounds by jan 1st. Hopefully I will meet my new years goals, which are as follows:
  • Finish a 1/2 Marathon
  • lose another 50 pounds by July 1st
  • lose 100 pounds by Dec. 31st
  • Save up $10k by Nov 21st (I know its not weight-related) - I want my new car.
