The Finish....Day 0....Confession and reality check!!

Started my 6th year of my weight loss and fitness plan and so far I've lost 96 pounds. I got my body moving and I've been active. I've competed in many running events and have been living my life... The truth is....in all this living and training, I got tired and I've slacked off. And I've gained back ten pounds and now I'm behind in my training plan.  And I've got 2 half marathons coming in May and June and a sprint triathlon in July and I'm not ready.

The other thing is I'm about 40 pounds from my goal and I'm stuck....

So here's the deal. It's time to buckle down and get this done!!!

Here's tomorrow goals...

  1. Run 4 miles / log in 10,000 plus steps
  2. Drink my water 
  3. Track food and stay within calorie limits 
  4. Get to bed on time 
  5. Take measurements and weight 
  6. Blog results 

Part of my problem is I just don't "feel" like getting my training done or eating the right foods.  I've become quite lazy and I guess, bored.  The other thing is, is the finish seems daunting. 40 more pounds to go....which is so weird, because I've already lost 96. So 40 pounds should be a breeze, right?  

At this point it's a matter of focus and doing the right thing....even if I don't "feel" like it.

So tomorrow the journey to the finish line begins....

Are you having trouble getting to the finish line?  Do you want to join me and make it happen?  Let's do it!!!

Have a fit day!!!!


  1. I am so glad to see you back. I've been wondering how you were.

    Our minds are funny things. Who knows why the end is so much harder than the beginning? We all stumble along the way. The important thing is you have a plan and you'll make it work.

    Best of luck!

    1. Thank Lori. This has been an interesting journey. Really ready to reach my goal! Hope you are doing well!!

  2. Welcome back to the blogging world! I'm at the finish line, but having trouble with consistency. I lose motivation with workouts and tracking because I'm maintaining. I become comfortable and we all know how that can end.....

    Cheering for you at the finish line!
