I’m alive, I swear!

Wow, June already. I can’t believe how fast time is going by. I only blogged once in May and I am sad about it. The whole month I thought about all the blog posts I wanted to write, but I just didn’t take the time to actually write things down. So a month went by in no time flat. I thought I would have tons of time while on maternity leave but I just keep finding things to do and projects to take on. I barely have time to just sit and veg on the couch. Ezri loves to be on the ground rolling around and playing with toys, so I have way more free time with my hands. I am always finding something to do rather than sitting in front of the TV all day. I guess that’s a good thing but I am never going to get around to watching all the TV shows and movies I had planned to. Lol. 

So the Weight Watcgers thing is going. Not well, but it’s going. My Mom and I have been at it for 8 weeks now and all I have to show for it is a loss of 3lbs. Yes, it’s better than nothing, but I had hoped to have done better. It’s a roller coaster of ups and downs each week. I haven’t actually dedicated myself 100% to the program, so I’m not surprised about only losing 3lbs. This week I took the group journal to track so I am hoping it will help me dedicate myself to tracking! I have yet to complete a full week of tracking so this might give me that extra motivation because I know people will see my journal for the week. 

In an extra effort to try to get back on the wagon, I’ve decided to participate in Roni’s #milestreak. It is to help people get back into running by aiming to run at least a mile (1.61kms) every day in June. I have been successful so far and I hope to keep it up for the rest of the month. I am looking forward to, hopefully, seeing my pace increase and time decrease to run the mile. Heck, I may even decide to run a little further, but I am starting with the one mile first. 

I don’t have too much more to say right now. I know that I’ll be back on the 8th to write another letter to Ezri!!

    Good luck with your weight loss :-) I know you can do it.
    What is the group journal? We don’t have it in the UK meetings, I’m assuming it’s a way to track each individual but that the record is available for the group or the next person who uses it to see?

    Well, it’s good being occupied right? :) Having projects and keeping busy sounds healthier than just slacking on the couch watching TV *coughlikemecough*

    Good luck with the weight loss, and everything else! Go you!

    I’m glad you have more free time now! I think that’s nice that you have projects to keep yourself busy. I like to veg out on the couch sometimes, but then I always have an itch to be doing something more productive.

    Running a mile every day in June sounds like a great goal to have! I would like to get back into running too, and I think starting off with a mile is a good idea. I pushed myself too hard once, and my legs were in pain! Good luck on your weight loss!
