Joining a website

So today I joined myfitnesspal.com, because I've been stuck on this plateau since about october where I can't break through 150 lbs. I seem to fluctuate from 150-155. So I'm going to start counting calories again and see if I can lose this last 20lbs. My friend Bekah uses this website and had good things to say about so I am going to try it out.

Also due to some leg pain I am taking a short break from running. This is the same place that started hurting in the summer that made it impossible to run for a month and I put all that weight back on. So erring on the side of caution I am avoiding in strenuous lower body exercises until I can walk without it aching. Still working out on the Wii even if its only 30 minutes and not high calorie burning.

Finished Week 1 C25K

I finished week 1 out, but with the traveling and house guests couldn't get started on week two. I've kept moving though by using my Wii Fit Plus even done some of the longer distance runs to keep myself in the grove. I'm a little discouraged because I keep putting on weight despite the fact that I am exercising everyday. Going to have to start counting calories I guess. The exercise is just not enough.

Tomorrow is the first day of week 2 for me. The highs for the week are in the mid to low 30's all week. May have to go invest in those cold weather compression shirts sooner than I had planned. Thursday and Friday are expecting some snow accumulation so we'll see if I can stick with it.

New Year's Resolution 2010: Stick with the exercising, lose the fat sitting on my midsection that makes me feel like a jello cow.
