Hello! I haven't made an appearance on here for quite a LONG while...
Let me reintroduce myself.
I'm Katie's sister-in-law. Kathy is my brother's mother-in-law (I don't think there's a word for that, but she's family.) Last spring/summer I was training for a triathlon and some runs and felt really fit, healthy, etc. However, my weights gone a *little* up since then. I got married in December, then moved up waaay north (= looong winter), and started a new, intense semester in school. I stepped on the scale last night, curious as to why some of my dresses weren't zipping up and almost said a swear word at the number that was blinking below.
I'm not quite ready to post it here, but I'm making a goal, along with Katie, to be back down to 135 by her birthday, less than 2 months away.
- My number one vise is PORTION CONTROL. I'm not going to restrict myself on any foods, but I am going to be very aware of the amount of food I'm eating.
- We have lots of fresh fruits and veggies in our house, so those will be my snacks - not the cookies, brownies and ice cream. Those will be for special occasions.
- It's still wintery here and the free on-campus gym is about a mile away. That use to be my excuse to not go, but NO MORE. I'll set aside an hour a day to exercise. My schedule will allow for that now and I don't think I'll have that convenience in the future.
