In March 2014 maybe, Mel hired a personal trainer for me. He worked with me on weights but I was mostly interested in running. So I very slowly started running. Just a couple minutes in a very slow jog followed by breathless recovery minutes. Slow progress but I burned a lot of calories. On my own I pushed and kept at it, dropped the weights though. Just not as interested. Or maybe more intimidated. Anyway, in November 2015 I ran a half marathon! And it was good. I had gained some weight back. So I walked a bit, maybe a good bit, but I did it. My personal trainer I had lost track of and should have texted him to tell him how I'd progressed, but he killed himself in August. Guilt. But I lost those pounds and went shopping with Mel. I fit into a size 2 jeans at Old Navy! Mel took my picture in the dressing room and posted it on Facebook. It was great, except that during the holidays I started eating sweets and baking again. 30 lbs have come back. Eek.
So today is my first day on the No Meat Athlete Health Made Simple weight loss meal plan. Vegan. Lots of fruit and veggies. I have to lose weight again so that I can wear the cute SMALL clothes I got last summer. Here goes!
