Project: Slim My Ass Down
I've been putting off writing this post for a little over three weeks now. Since my last half marathon I've come to the realization that if I want to continue to participate in races whatever distance: half marathons, 10k's, do triathlons, 5K's, relay's I have to slim my ass down. I put on weight since my Health Magazine Feel Weight Great Program and really have to take it off.
This extra weight has been slowing me down in all areas of my life, not just running. I'm making the decision not to participate in any races until I slim my ass down. I'm simply not enjoying them as much as I can be, and I gotta tell you, 100% its because I put on this weight.
I hate admitting that I put on weight, and that I have to lose it - again, but I do. I'm not happy with any of my running efforts, I get sad over the way my clothes fit, and it's messing with my mind, my ego, my self esteen, and it sucks!
I'm so annoyed with myself for having to do this again, but it is what it is!
I started working on #PSMAD, Project Slim My Ass Down about two weeks ago, so far I'm down about 3.1 pounds, 16.9 to go! This time around, and I'm sure I've said it before I need to transform my mind. I know how much I need to lose, however I can not equate my success with the scale.
When my mind gets stronger, so will my body.
I do plan on running, working on my core, and abs, as well as strength and cross train. I'm doing a blog challenge that is helping with this all: the #SuperHero challenge (a series of exercises: spidermans (so hard), supermans, planks, and burpees) that are hard, but forcing me to strenght train more.
I do plan on chronicling my weight loss on here but only on a monthly basis; I may even post some pictures (probably not) but to me writing too many posts on what I'm eating, my workouts and weight loss will be tedious.
So, here I go again, and here's to Project: Slim My Ass Down!
