wow coco! 7 lbs!
that is AWESOME!!! (and thanks for converting for me. i can be a bit dim at times.
) i'm really proud of you!
i have to tell you about this woman that i run with. about a year ago, she weighed 300 lbs. she decided that she was sick of being that big and decided to run. she said it was hard at first as she could make it to the end of her block, after which she would walk for a bit. but then the next day, she would set her goal 1/2 way down the next block, and then walk. she did this for about a month and at the end of that first month could run a mile. she said it was the most amazing thing. well, today, she is down to just under 200 and is training for the disney 1/2 marathon in january. although i could only run 5 miles (and i am about 40 lbs lighter and a good 12 years younger) she did 8. i must admit that i have probably told 50 people (no lie) about her. she really is quite amazing. but it started with that first run to the end of her block.
and... my 5, isn't all running. i do intervals, which means that i run 3, then walk 1. there are people out on the trail that i run on who do that opposite, they walk 3, then run 1. and the truth is that it is whatever gets you out there and whatever gets your body working and burning calories.
when you do your oat smoothie, do you just throw them in there dry?
