Happy 2012 friends:)
Last night was nothing to get too excited about, but I did make it till midnight and now I am ooohh so tired. I think a nap might be in order very soon.
Today I have started on the Pure/LA Weight Loss system (again).
This was the program I lost 20 lbs with back in 2006, it worked so well for me.
I found the plan on ebay and bought it for a whopping 13.50 and I am excited to get going again.
Today consists of a bit of a detox/cleanse type diet. I will do this today and tomorrow. I think it mostly just helps you get rid of your water weight and get a good kick start to the eating program.
Basically you can have unlimited amounts of protein in the form of say chicken or tuna and unlimited salad type vegetables, along with a detox drink. I got that from Walmart (we used it before for this so I knew they had it) its called like the Hollywood Diet or something and its near all the weight loss bars and all that. You mix it with water and sip on it over the 2 days. It says you can lose 10lbs in 2 days, but I don't think that is healthy or the truth, like I said, just a good kick start!
Anyways thought I may as well start that today since we weren't going to any party's and might as well get one day out of the way while we are just relaxing at home!
The other thing is, I have decided to try for a marathon again. It scares me to write this and I don't want very many people to know because I want it to be about proving it to myself and my own inner processes rather than proving or doing it for anyone else. But I thought I can't NOT mention it because it will be taking a lot of my time and thought processes and it would feel awkward not to be able to share that here, where I process this stuff.
I may write more on this later as the subject is vast and complex for me, but to make a long story short for this post, I start tomorrow! I found a great little app for my iphone that works out a training plan that I will follow and my sister-in-law was so encouraging me to run again and has offered to watch my son so I can train! Isn't that great? (we live in the same complex to boot)
So I see no reason why this shouldn't be an ideal time to shoot for this!
So here goes nothing.
I don't think its really giving up, if you keep trying. Even if the tries end up being months apart!
