It's Go Time!

In more ways than one.   I have less than 24 hours until I will be running in my first organized 5k race.  If I look back at where I was when I decided to do this here.  I mentioned that I would have to train my butt off on Aug 20th just to run the whole thing.  Then on Sept 27 I was bragging about running a sub 35 minute 5k.  I might just break a personal record tomorrow.  I might not.  I will definitely accomplish my goal though.  I will run the whole darn thing.  So with 20 some odd hours to go it is GO TIME!

In what other way is it GO TIME?  I am glad you asked.  As you can see by the weight loss tracker to your right I have been stuck right around 300 for a while now.  I have been very lax in my efforts to write all of my food intake down and my exercise has consisted exclusively of running.  Beginning Monday I am going to begin anew.  I am going to rededicate myself to tracking and getting to the gym.  I will not give up running, but it is going to be a weekend endeavor.  I am going to get back on the elliptical and hit the weights.  The most important thing is going to be to track.  Not exceed my daily points and get this train rolling.   I feel very lucky that I am still on the tracks, I just need to move.

If any of you out there are struggling I invite you to join me in rededicating your efforts.  I think we all know what needs to be done, we just have to get our heads right.

Good luck with the run!
I found that I got into a rhythm with the eating after a while and then it seemed silly to write each and everything down. I think that is the point where it gets really difficult to stick to the plan. That's why I switch to Core and only wrote down what I had to count points for...much easier.

You're probably done with your race by now....I'm anxious to see how it went!

I'm with you on the rededication. I like your analogy of the train...I haven't exactly derailed but I haven't been getting anywhere.

Good luck starting can do it!
