I can't believe it has been 3 years since I posted on here. :(
I am sorry I have been away. Life had been getting the better of me and well, I got lazy.....
So lazy that I stopped running, I gained weight...
I was pushing back into the 270s again, and I was not proud of it. My body decided that it needed me to start paying attention to it again and kicked me by destroying my Gall Bladder. I had to have it removed and while I was in there, in recovery, waiting to go home one of my doctors came in and told me, you know you are going down the same path I was on. High Blood Pressure, gall bladder failed, next your are going to start getting chest pains. Then you'll have a stroke.
Yeah, it was that bad. I was a mess, but he suggested I read a book called "Eat to Live" by Dr. Joel Fuhrman http://www.drfuhrman.com/. I read it, I loved it, the facts that he provided were enough for me.
So I became a Vegetarian (more Vegan). My primary care physician told me I was nuts. I already knew that though. :)
I started to not only loose weight but I noticed that my clothes were starting to get too big, then they got too big and started falling off. I went from a 42 inch waist to a 33 (at this point) and I am still dropping.
I started to run again...and it was so much easier I guess loosing 51 lbs will have that effect on ya huh?
My resting heart rate is below 60, my max heart rate when I run is only 160 and I mean run hard.
I love running again and my daughter is running with me. We started the couch to 5k plan and we are killing it. Every run gets easier, I don't dread going to the next week. I look forward to the challenge of it.
So I am back, I thought about abandoning this blog, starting over fresh with a new one but this is me, my history!
I'll be here more, it won't all be about running, I'll tell you about food adventures too. :)
It's really good to be back...
