Um, Winning!

I've scored a couple of major wins lately. Not sure why I haven't been sharing them! There has been a bit of turmoil in my real life and I'm hoping to have a life changing (sounds dramatic, but it's true!) decision handed down by the end of this week so that will relieve some stress and tension regardless of the outcome.

But anyway, back to winning.

First of all, my workouts have been on point this whole month. I mean, consistent yet varying the actual activity which has bad me feel Bad. Ass. There has been a lot of running, a lot more than usual but that's all thanks to that little Half Marathon coming up. And thanks to acupuncture I'm actually running relatively pain free! I'm not cured by any means but the improvement is incredible which also may be due to the weight training and variety but who can really tell for sure?

Next, I only need to lose 4-5 more lbs by the end of the year to reach my amended goal! I don't know if I ever officially announced my initial ridiculous weight loss goal. I decided I was going to lose 60 pounds...in 90 days. So once I smartened up a bit I changed it in January/February ish to 40 lbs by the end of the year. At that point I had been losing for a little bit but it was pretty slowly, even for just starting out. But I've kept at it and wouldn't you know it, I'm down 35! And that's a solid 35 which means it's gone away and never come back which is awesome. I've had some haters but I'm not letting that get me down.

My final win is a bit of a secret. So all I'm going to say is that it's a ballsy move and I haven't made one of those in quite a while. It's a revival of a project I started working on last year and it involves lots and lots of clothes. Some of you are probably aware of what the project is and if so, don't tell! But I'm excited about it. Majorly excited!

So all in all, November has been a pretty good month. I even had an almost completely meat-free Thanksgiving and for that I'm very proud of my family. My mom put sausage in her signature stuffing but that's it. And I hate stuffing! So it was easy on me and I'm proud of her for eating acorn squash for the first time as a main course. In closing, take a look-see at my training log for the month! Nothing about the distance or time is impressive, but the consistency is!
