Fat Chick Friday: Fat Chick Fail

Ask me how many times I ran after the last post?

Go on.....


Did I ever tell you guys that I have a huge problem with motivation? Yup. I do...

But I so plan on going tomorrow. Really! I do! It's just, it gets so busy around the holidays, then Aunt Flo dropped in, blah blah blah. I know excuses, and crap ones at that.

But tomorrow? Now that the chaos of holiday shopping is done, and I don't have to work, and because if I don't I'll just sit around my house eating M&M's and playing WOW all day. I must run.  I mean, I need to at least do one thing productive.

But on the plus, I did lose 3 of 4 holiday lbs gained. Go me!

Too bad I'll probably put it back on next week.

Merry Christmas you saucy minxes you :)

Fat Chick Friday

This blog originated as a means for me to document my weight loss journey, with a sprinkling of other fun stories and anecdotes along the way. Well, since I've been a very naughty girl and have ceased all "getting healthy" projects for oh, I don''t know, a few months, I've managed to get away from the really important issues at hand. Such as the diary of an angry fat chick.

This week I have decided to introduce a new weekly feature on my blog. Fat Chick Friday will probably be every week, every other week as the hilarity and sob stories of me going from fat chick to former fat chick ensue. 

This last weekend while my best friend, and fellow blogger,  Andrea came to visit for the extended weekend. This meant that fast food in the form of In-N-Out, Del Taco, Cafe Rio, and other wondrous places, was consumed. As well as an unhealthy slew of other delicious foods. Slothfulness was also a great pass time for us. Nice.  But the other activity that occurred during Andrea's visit was my sister running the Las Vegas Rock N Roll  half marathon. Yes, the one I was supposed to run with her.  Well, it's obvious I did not. But she did, (and alone thanks to me) and did amazing! And I got to thinking as we waited for her to finish,  with hundreds of runners parading by as we sat, I really did want to do this. I should have done this but I chickened out. Well, I STILL want to be a runner!

Today, my husband and I started running again. For me, I started the C25K program over, from day one, and it totally kicked my ass.  My boobs were aching (damn you giant boobs!) and I was way out of breath at the finish but dang it I got my ass back on that treadmill after *cough4extrapoundscough* and months of inactivity and did it.

And starting over was one of the hardest steps I've ever taken.  But it's going to be one of the most worth while!

And that's how Sue (C) see's it!
Just kidding, stay classy San Diego!

But really, Let's hope my fat ass sticks with it this time. Until next week, or the week after, whatever....
