This poor blog!

As I am now updating my blogs, I have been looking at this one and thinking, what sad shape it is in? Is the owner of it in sad shape as well.... NOT REALLY! I have had a great summer, and great success in my personal trial. It is so time for an update, time to vamp this blog up, and get movin' and groovin'! It is going to take a day or 2 before this blog gets some love, but check back! I will be posting tips on running 1/2 marathons, what a TRUE running partner can do for you, how best to train, and what happens when you take a month off due to "eating ashphalt" and hurting your ankle- and starting over! Stay tuned!

Holy hanna banana! I can't believe it has been almost a month since I last posted! It seems if I am not on the computer all the time, then I am so far behind on my blogging! I am trying to be more consistent, so wish me luck!

I've updated my weight loss goals and oh my, I've got a WAYS TO GO!!! Wish me luck, tonight I am meeting a good friend and we are going running...yes, entertaining thought I know! I am staying mentally positive, because that is the only way to win at this!

Also, as far as Weight Watchers goes, I am going back Saturday morning! I got caught up in the daily routine with family, kids sporting events, and pure LAZINESS... so off to the weigh in, and then I will use the weigh in from that to use on my "actual weight!"...

I've promised a picture for so long and you are about to get it, with inches and everything. I want to make a book out of this once I have reached my goal weight. Stay tuned!

P.S. Did I mention, I am running the Provo Freedom Festival 10k and also the Provo River Half-Marathon!!! I've wanted to forever, and I paid my fees, so here I come!

How long has it been...

WHAT IS UP!!! How long has it seriously been, WAY TOO LONG! I am back, folks! And so excited! Today I decided it was time to start making some commitments, and this was a priority! I need to update this blog with photos, recipes, workouts, thoughts, fears, and anything else I can imagine about weight loss! Give me a few days, I am picking up the new camera tomorrow, and we will get going.

I have officially gone back to Weight Watchers. I've lost weight there 3 different times, been successful every time and then we've moved and I've had excuses as to stopping- but I am back. FOR GOOD.
Reasons I love Weight Watchers:
  • I love my friends that I met at WW. AMAZING PEOPLE!
  • I love the meetings.
  • I love that other people are going through the same crappy trial as I am with food.
  • I am constantly inspired to be better when I know I am paying money to step on a scale. (Sad but true)
  • I can eat whatever I want just not all of it!
  • It is a way of life.
  • I love that they teach you to feel better inside and out.
  • I love that I am taking a night off for just me, to focus on just me.
  • I love knowing and mark my words, that when I am a LIFE TIME MEMBER with WW, I will be at a very healthy weight, a single digit size in clothing, and have finally accomplished my goal of running a HALF MARATHON with a few of my BFF's!!!
That is it for tonight. I am tired and I've got to go figure out my points for breakfast. I am hoping to revamp the blog by Monday~

Thanks for joining me in this journey, keep posted for some fabulous happenings in the everyday life of Jen- she's BACK!
