Day 110: 193

I am so close to the 180's I can taste it... This also makes the lightest I have been in 4 years. How fantastic does that make me feel!! The best thing is that being this close to the 80's gives me so much more motivation to keep going. I don't remember the last time I weighed anywhere in the 180's. It had to have been years ago. So I am determined to leave the 190's behind me and enter into a new me, but only for a little while.. until I get into the new new me of the 170's! LOL

I wogged 3 miles this morning and did a full body weight lifting regimen. Tomorrow is a rest day, and I am in desperate need of one. Not that I physically feel like I need a break, but I think sometimes I get into the mentality that I have to keep going and if I take a day off then I will sabotage myself and never get back on track. How sad is that, eh? I , mentally, wont let myself take a break because I am so terrified that one day off will ruin me. So I now have odd days of the week marked on the calender for 'REST' days... and I have to follow my calender. At least this way I guarantee that I wont burn myself out. Plus, I always find myself breaking my own records running the day after!

So, food is on track. Water is flowing well. My waist is shrinking (yippeeee!) and I am loving this new year!

wow i wish i could run. i hate running/jogging or anything to do with it! i do understand the working out love though. i used to work out two hours every morning and when i stopped i missed it. now im starting to work on the treadmill again and its weird- i still miss the weights. good luck on hitting the 180's i can honestly say that my dream would be to hit 180 so im so happy for you that you are almost there! good luck!
