The downfall to weight loss...I always feel like I have to do this or I have to do that or I'm going to get "heavy" again. And lately I've had serious scale issues. Every single time I step on the scale instead of seeing a # that is 130-something (my actual weight) I always see a 150-something. Same thing when I step on the TM to run and when it asks for weight I always start with 1-5 and then have to push the back button. I'm not obsessive...yet...but whenever I do eat the not so healthy or bigger portions I get fearful that I'm getting comfortable. Ahhhhh anyone else who has had big weightloss and body changes have things like this happen to them or am I just crazy?

Saw this posted on facebook and wanted to share it with my bloggers. This is eye level video of the Indy 500 Festival Mini Marathon I am running on May 7th. This looks sooooo bad ass I cannot wait to run it!
Calf muscle is super tight and I'm walking a little funny. I'm doing a heat treatment as I type in hopes to losen it up a bit for my RPM class at noon. Then after I will ice it down.

A GRIPE: Okay so I'm so tired of hearing chicks whine about their weight and inability to lose it. I know I know I'm a hypocrite because I used to be that girl. But I USED to be that girl so I can complain now. I get so annoyed that when they gripe I give my 2 cents on what they can do to change it and I get excuses as to why they cant do this or that. Or that they may just have a thyroid problem (FYI-that is actually pretty rare) or that they are just destined to be this weight cuz they are older and their metabolism is slower. Or they eat healthy and they exercise but they still gain weight. Or that because of their genes they are just built that way. I know, I've been there, I felt that frustration and I've used every single one of those excesses. For YEARS I tried to lose weight and I swore I was eating right and I just had to work out more. Never worked. Then put a surgery on top of that and I was 168lbs at 5'1"! I gave in and joined Weight Watcher and in 5 months 30lbs literally MELTED off my body. It wasn't hard, I wasn't hungry, I didn't work out more. I just learned how to eat the right way! And yep even had my thyroid tested to, it was fine. No diet or exercise GIMMICK is going to get you slim, you have to commit to being healthy and you have to commit FOR LIFE. That is what people forget those two words "FOR LIFE". You have to make time for yourself and say no to others, you don't have to work out 5 times a week for hours (unless you enjoy that kinda thing) go 3xweek for 30 minutes and you WILL see a change WHEN you pair that with a healthy diet. If you think your eating healthy and your still NOT losing I will bet you 10 bucks your not eating as healthy as you think. Stop making excuses and do the work and I promise you that you will lose weight.

PS: My weight loss has stalled the last few months not because I can't do it but because I'm not trying as hard, I'm enjoying foods a bit more. But the great thing is I am ENJOYING foods that I love and not feeling guilty. I take accountability of what I consume and either work out a little more or eat a little less the next few days. But in those few months I am proud to say I HAVE NOT GAINED! I'm 33 and in the best physical condition of my LIFE! And I couldn't be any happier even if I was not lot lose another single pound.

Out of 34 teams at the Screaming Pumpkin Prediction Relay Marathon race the 105.7 The X Rocks team placed in at 14th! And we came in at 11:55! Ahhhh! But we all got our tiaras and wands, which is what I wanted, just no trophy. I'll post some photo's below of the race, it was really a TON of fun and totally recommend this race to anyone! The race sounds intimidating because Springdale Cemetery is very hilly but also ya know there's that thing of running through a cemetery at night. But I loved that it was at night and you couldn't see....see the approaching hills. I think if I could see them it would freak me out but this way you have no idea what or when they are coming. I just kept the glow sticks to my right, followed them and ran my heart out. I did pretty well too...well I should have slowed it down some. Bob, Jill and I both ran our normal pace so poor Matty had like an hour and 20 mins to run the 6 miles so he just jogged it, poor guy. Our team pace was 9:22. My official time was 1:03:35 or a 9:42 mile. It was cold but we were blessed that I broadcast from there and had the comforts of the warm van just at the finish line! :) But it was seriously a super fun run and you should plan to do it next year! The only thing I am sad about is that I didn't get a pictures after the race with us in our tiaras :(
