the countdown is ON!

Oh my goodness, January 15, 2012 is ALMOST here!!

Am I really going to run a half marathon? YES I AM!

Let the training begin...




Finally watched Biggest Loser premiere on DVR today with my hubby. We both agreed that we like Bob(of course!), and are really liking Dolvett but not so sure about Anna? What do ya think? I mean, does she really know what she's doing? Yea, she's a great tennis player but helping these obese contestants deal with ALL of the issues that helped them reach 300-400lbs? I'm not so sure. I'll be watching to see if she'll prove me wrong. What did YOU think of the new mix of trainers? I think I'm sure going to miss Jillian! Seems like she made a lot of the show for me. I liked that she had been there. An overweight child/teen who had shared some of the contestants pain and experiences. Ya know? I guess we'll have to see how the season unfolds...

Am I the only one totally addicted to that show??




My workouts: As for me, I am setting out for a 6 mile run in the morning to boost my confidence! Yes, in about 115 days the half marathon will be here. My gosh, did time fly by or what? Ha, I know 115 days sounds SO far away...but not for me. It's a goal I set for myself a long time ago and this year was the year to FINALLY do it! Accomplish this goal...EXCUSE ME-CRUSH this goal!! This will help my weight loss come full circle. Who would have thought years ago that I'd be running 13.1 miles? Oh my goodness, not me! Yes, me! Well, lets pause and take a step back. I haven't actually gone 13.1 miles YET. My longest run has been 5.4 miles. So, I have a long way to go, but I WILL get there. With the help of my fellow running bloggers, the motivational quotes on Pinterest and the support of my family and friends, I will DO THIS!

Good luck with training!! I can't wait to hear all about it. I'm excited for you.

However, don't let me completely burst your bubble when I say this, BUT do not be surprised if you find your weight not going down during training. I was told the same thing and desperately wanted to prove the trainer at my gym wrong on all counts and while it did move some training for long distance didn't help me reach my weight loss goal. It still hasn't. Though I am not bummed. but seriously, I am not being negative nelly... Good luck! :)

Yay for half marathon training!! Glad to hear you are so pumped up about it - best of luck!!

And I love the Biggest Loser. I'm still not sold on Anna yet, either.

I just started watching it last season. I'm also not sure what to make of Anna - same concerns as you, what does she know about training and inspiring people with these issues?

You WILL crush your goal. I was just chatting with one of the guys in the group that runs here at work, and when I told him I ran 11 miles last weekend he reminded me how far I've come in a year. He said "I can't belive you've gone from not being able to run two miles last summer and HATING running, to running 11 miles and loving it". I would never have believed it either last summer! Perseverance pays off, for sure.
