Well, as you all know the first of the year I was fat and unhappy. I was beyond ready to start my weight loss journey, yet again. Gaining 20 lbs from summer through the holidays had me in pants 2 sizes bigger.
I watched what I ate, counted my calories, started running. For 3 months I have averaged a little over 3 miles a day. Of course I have taken days off but I have also added distances from 7-9 miles to my list as well. Longer runs help to keep the numbers even.
Over 3 months I have lost 20 lbs, over 15 inches, and ran over 300 miles. I estimated when I started this I would train about 400 miles for my first ever half marathon. I am betting with 6.5 weeks left to go, I will run more than that. Especially since I have been averaging about 25 miles a week. I also set a goal to run 800 miles in 2012. If I have 450 miles done by mid-May... I guess I can run 1000 miles in 2012. :o) Not sure if I will though.
So.... I still eat pizza, I still grab a Starbucks Mocha, I still eat chocolate. I just do so in moderation and try to workout as well.
