I’m wishy-washy about quitting, it seems

I keep thinking I’m going to shut down this blog, but then I don’t. Not sure why. Maybe I will try to blog more? Let’s try it.

So, it being a new year, and my friends Amber and Julie both getting married between September of this year and April of the next, and me being tired of being wobbly all over, I’m going to get back on the Lose Weight Exercise wagon. Over the last year, I’ve lost ~25 pounds on Weight Watchers (I’m assuming I’ve gained back 5 over the holidays, but I’ve not weighed myself lately) and none of that with Lose Weight Exercise.

I did Bootcamp a couple summers ago, and it was okay, other than me sort of blowing my knee out . . . which basically grounded my Lose Weight Exercise long enough that I fell out of the habit. Then, a while back, my friend Emily took up running and did Couch to 5K, and I thought, well, damn. So I got my goods together, because I like statistics:

I did Week 1, Day 1 today, and honestly, it was fine. I’m going to push myself more day after tomorrow, since you’re only supposed to do the workout every other day. I’m sort of unexpectedly jazzed that it wasn’t as godawful as I thought.

I also had an awesome shopping day today. Since I’m going to start a new job on 1/25, I sort of get to reinvent myself, and I don’t know, I’m going to blame Alyssa, but I went a little crazy at Ann Taylor and LOFT. I ended up with three dresses, a skirt, a pair of pants, and two or three shirts. But, since my work wardrobe previously consisted of Threadless shirts and jeans, I figure it’s time.

    C25K is awesome. I was not in any kind of “good” shape when I started and I amazed myself with my progress. Which, when you’re trying to change your relationship with exercise, is awesome and exactly what you need from a motivation perspective. Go, Nikki, go!

    How’s it going now?

    C25k is how I ran 5ks a couple of years ago.
