Today I caught a glimpse of Fall. This is my favorite time of year. Right before my birthday every year it starts to cool and the earth readies itself for slumber.
In August I made the decision to go back into consulting. IT consulting is very rewarding for me and lucrative. I loved the people I worked with and the opportunity to participate in the healthy weight challenge but I could not turn down the opportunity to see what is out there.
So between the time I left in August until now, I’ve been in limbo. My food and exercise got way off track for a few weeks. I gained 5 pounds, exercised sporadically and started feeling like I did before I started my fitness journey in April.
But thank goodness, some things stayed constant. My friend Brenda was always there for me as was Randy, my therapist. So, I worked through it and am now back on the road!
I have a wonderful trainer I work out with 2 days a week that is absolutely going to be taking me to the next level. I love the 1:1 training. And I’m running again. Now that it is cooler, I can run anytime during the day and that is more important to me than I realized.
I have lost the 5 pounds I gained plus some and am actually about ready to hit a new milestone. I’ve dropped 3 pants sizes total since April and my personal goal is to lose 25 more pounds by the end of the year. Totally doable.
I have the Color Run coming up on October 6 and the Des Moines 5K on October 21st. Good goals to have.
