Re: Jen's Journal

I decided today I'm doing a half marathon at the end of November. I had an amazing run this morning. I'd forgotten how much fall weather energizes my running. I can't NOT train for something after I've proven to myself that it's possible for me to train in the time I have. 8 weeks to race day. I'm s...

Re: Jen's Journal

I'm recovered. Day after was rough. I must have been low on potassium because about 24 hours after the race was over, my legs started burning like I'd just done an intense workout and started cramping up, so I gorged on potassium and iron rich foods and super-hydrated. Today I start back to routine....

Re: Jen's Journal

I just did my first Triathlon yesterday. A TRIATHLON. I can't even believe I'm saying that. 4 and a half years ago I was 228 lbs and could barely run a mile at that time. Today I'm in the 150s... and I'm a triathlete. Granted, it was just a sprint tri, but the fact that I swam 500m , biked 12 miles,...

Re: Jen's progress so far... In pictures. (:

It's just a sprint distance Tri. 12 miles of biking, 5k of running, 500m of swimming. Swimming is going to be the most challenging. It's been a long time since I've been on a swim team! I was 15 the last time I was swimming that distance regularly. I turn 31 next week.

Re: Jen's Journal

Still running, and lifting. Not doing cardio besides running right now per instructions by nutritionist. I've cut back on activity and upped my calorie intake. Trying to see how I do. On the bright side... my running has improved drastically lately and I've been able to average a 9:30 pace for multi...

Re: Jen's progress so far... In pictures. (:

The nutritionist gave me some ideas about my food intake (a) it wasn't enough even for my bmr -1550 calories now- (b) I was underestimating my calories burned and not eating enough to compensate (I was burning 700- 1000 calories a day, 5-6 days a week). My water intake was high enough I was waterloa...

Re: Jen's progress so far... In pictures. (:

I will post another pic when I get down to 153. That'll be 10 more lbs down from my last pic. I'm at 154 and a half right now. I'd been stuck in a plateau for 3 months until this week. However... went to a nutritionist this week. My body fat is 21.8%, which is in the ideal range. For the first time ...

Re: Jen's Journal

Re: Jen's progress so far... In pictures. (:

It will be 3 years in July since I really started getting serious about it, but I've lost 72 lbs total in the last 3.5 years. Gone from a size 16/18 at my highest to a size 7/8 currently. I still have about 27 lbs to lose to be at my ultimate goal weight. I've been overweight all my life so this is ...

Re: Jen's Journal

Still doing Insanity and running, and free weights, and now added in a few exercises with an 8 lb medicine ball and a pull-up bar. I'm doing 12-15 assisted pull-ups. I've lost 8 inches since March 1st, and I'm down to 155 lbs! I'm also down to a 29 inch waist, which is something I have not ever achi...
