First single-digit-sized pair of jeans since 1996 (Jan 4, 2013)My cat, Oscar. He passed away in 2016.I did really well yesterday. Um, I didn't actually walk up that many stairs. I live in a very hilly neighborhood. 😂People on Facebook are posting old pictures for some reason. I really don''t feel like posting this there, but anyway these pictures were taken 10.5 years and 75 lbs apart. Age 29 vs 40.A long day!I haven't weighed this little since I was 18, and even then it was only due to unhealthy starvation diets. My initial goal was 140, but I am still technically a little overweight so I'm going for 130. My highest weight was around 250.#BeforeAndAfter This popped up in my Facebook memories.Haha, most of this is from walking up VERY steep hills. I wanted the badge so I walked up and down stairs in my building.I ran a mile without stopping for the first time in about six years! I'm a bit slower than I used to be, but last time I did this is was on a treadmill, while this was in my busy, hilly neighborhood.I had been struggling with motivation, but I've been doing a lot better. I had a lot to do today, and I did it all walking!#BeforeAndAfter
I just noticed that my face is thinner!A new personal best for me! #fitbitI went to the aquarium and took a long walk on the waterfront!I'm doing C25K, so this was running/walking intervals. I actually like running. Who would have thought?I enjoy jogging now? What?It's my 41st birthday!I'm always racking up these badges because I live on a really steep hill 🤣. Not to dismiss myself, though, I do walk a lot.Just look at my cat!Not a bad pace considering that I had a few short walking intervals, and also I stopped to pet this cat 😻It's so hard for me to fill all the circles. Calories are the hardest.I couldn't run a mile a few weeks ago. Wow!I went for a run and walked back and forth to my art class.I didn't want to do this run, but I did!#BeforeAndAfter My weight has been mostly stable for the past two years or so. I stopped exercising for a long time, but I've taken it back up again, and even started running! I am technically a few pounds overweight, but I just wanted to remind myself how far I've come.I'm frustrated that I haven't managed to run three miles yet, but I couldn't even run one mile in early September, so this is great.Millie is ready for Halloween!I had such a great weekend! I went to a cat convention in Seattle. I ate ice cream and played with kittens and met Moshow the Cat Rapper. If you like cats you have to follow him on Instagram. He's such a lovely person!First run since I fell down! I kept it slow because, honestly, I'm still a little scared. It went pretty well, though!A good day! I stayed in my calorie range, too!#BeforeAndAfter 2009 and 2019.I had the track to myself!I ran three miles today, which is longer than I have ever run. It was so, so cold and I was slow, but I did it!I woke up earlier than planned and I actually made good use of the time.There are some days where running is much harder than others. Today was one of those. 🏃🏽😅Running felt easier today. I'm a little disappointed because my wrist monitor said that I ran 3.15 miles which is over a 5k. So there was a discrepancy, but I will take it. I would like to run in an actual race in the near future.I feel like I can't take credit for this because I have been sick for three days and I have no appetite, but apparently I am 0.8 lbs from a healthy BMI. For reference I was 223 lbs when I first joined Sparkpeople and my heaviest weight is around 250. I weighed myself three times because I couldn't believe that I was 132.8 🤣Let the half-marathon training begin! I was slower than usual, but it was dark and absolutely pouring rain, and the sidewalk is uneven. Safety first! I will be doing most of my training on a track but I didn't make it out there today.I didn't win, but I got a new personal best!First run of the year!Millie as a kitten, cuddling an XBox controller.A good run! I also signed up for a 5k in March, just for fun.I never ran in my life until this past September, so I'm pretty proud of myself right now. 🏃🏽♀️I'm really close to being able to do a 10k! I used some advice I got from a running video on YouTube. I ran for 20 minutes, walked one minute, then ran for 20 more minutes, then walked a minute, and then ran for 20 more minutes. I got my farthest distance yet and faster than my average speed!A new record for me since I've been wearing a Fitbit. I got two badges in one day. In related news, I pulled a butt muscle. I probably shouldn't have gone to Turbo Kick after a 5.5 mile run 🤣I'm in the 120s! Soon I will be half of my highest weight. I can't believe it.#BeforeAndAfter
Age 24 vs 41My fastest run!Pretty stoked about my 5k time from the other day.#BeforeAndAfter I have a weird habit of taking pictures in front of mirrors in this store. Honestly, I should just buy a mirror so I can take these pictures at home 🤣My half-marathon hasn't been cancelled — yet — so I'm just trying to maintain some level of training.I did it! I ran the length of a half-marathon all by myself. Social distancing! For context, I only started running last September and I couldn't run a mile.I was on a mission to run a 10k today, and shortly after, I realized it's my anniversary of being a runner. A year ago, at age 40, I attempted to run a mile without stopping. I couldn't do it, but I stuck with it, and now I can do half-marathons! Consistency is key!I was on a mission to run at least a 10k today, which I did, but I completely forgot that it's my anniversary of being a runner! A year ago, at age 40, I attempted to run a mile without stopping. I couldn't do it, but I stuck with it and now I can run half-marathons! Consistency is key.Today is my 42nd birthday! I've been doing mostly okay maintaining my weight. My Fitbit died today of all days, which I guess is the Universe telling me that I deserved an upgrade for my birthday.
I'm really thankful that I finally figured out that I don't hate running at all, and that running has improved my life so much over this past year. #BeforeAndAfterSo very tired.Halloween 10K!Running was a challenge today, but I did it! I don't know why this felt so difficult or why my pace was slower than usual. I haven't been doing strength training and I think that plays a part. I'm still proud of myself, though! I have a 15k in seven weeks and a half-marathon in June.7 mile run! Easier than last week, but still rough. I will be doing one of these every Saturday for a while.#BeforeAndAfter
My run today was NOT GOOD. Just an off day, I guess. Here's a before and after pictures. Don't worry, I will get my running shoes back on tomorrow or the next day. Also, look at my dorky new hydration vest!I see people are posting pet photos. This is Mildred.Another Saturday run in the books!15k run done! Tomorrow I'm not doing anything more strenuous than going to the farmers market.
I still can't believe that I can do runs like this because I vividly remember not being able to run a mile.It's taken forever, but I'm back in the 120s! When I get to 125 I'll be at half my heaviest weight.View on my run today.I ran a half-marathon today, and about 20 minutes faster than my record!Me and friend on Halloween 2011.
