At the beginning of July I started a new med (ortho tri cyclen) and almost immediately my weight shot up 12 lbs. I lost 9 lbs of it last couple weeks, but was still up 3 lbs on Friday... then this morning I stepped on the scale and was 5 lbs down. I have been really enjoying my food and not tracking calories much lately. It's nice to know I can maintain this way, but I really need to get back into tracking so that I can get below 200 soon.
I'm going to be (gulp) thirty years old in 34 days. I couldn't imagine a better way to enter my 30's though. I feel like a girl who has it all lately: My son is amazing and growing into such a wonderful young man. My boyfriend is the most genuine, caring man who supports me in everything I'm trying to achieve in life. I have great family and friends who have always had my back. I have a great job that keeps me challenged and pays the bills. Running is becoming addicting and something I love to do.
With all that happy, mushy stuff said... I still have a lot to accomplish in the next 34 days. I'm not going to accomplish everything on my list, but I plan to give the important ones a good shot. Some of the ones I definitely want to accomplish are:
- Run entire 10K without stopping (I'm positive I did this during the half, but it's not documented so I want to do it again)
- Don't drink soda (still going strong on this one)
- Do 1 (or more) real push up (ugh...)
- Hold a bird (God help me)
