Good Morning, Everyone!

My name is Jeni. I am married with 2 kids, Mak is 10, Tommy is 8. After Mak and Tommy were born, I spent four years losing weight. I went from 199 to 135. To get to that 135 I was working out 2-3 hours a day and eating 1200 calories. That weight wasn't maintainable for me. Then after a shoulder injury, I stopped working out completely and spent the next several years gaining back the weight I worked so hard to lose. In July I decided to take my body back. So I started running again and counting calories. My results:

July 22~180
August 22~172.8
September 22~160.8
November 22~149.8
December 23~151.6
January 22 ~~~145.2
February 22~~142.6
March 22~~142.8

My w/I day is the 22 of each month. I am in maintenance mode right now. (I am doing an okay job at this, but I find it really hard.) I haven't had time or ambition this past week to workout, which lead to crappy eating. So no more!!! I need to get my booty back on the treadmill (too wet outside to run). I may not be in loss mode, but I still need to watch what I am eating and portion control.

My Y is offering a 1/2 marathon class. It's a 12 week program meeting 3 times per week. I really want to take it, but running after working all day is going to be rough. (for those who are just getting to know me I work 12 hour shifts in a food processing plant.) I don't have long to decide because I'm sure the class will fill up fast.

W 64 oz
E 35 minute treadmill time
E keep it under control!
D focus my energy on being positive!
