heart to heart as we hit the floor

(potential eating disorder and exercise related trigger warning.)

Managed to run a little over two miles this morning--slowly, but I had the dog, which shaves a minute onto every mile. I'm feeling mostly recovered, although my mitochondria are still reporting taking scattered fire and casualties. Still, I'm going to make it to archery tonight.

I'm going to try yoga and a dog-run tomorrow, and then a long solo run Saturday--although the jury's still out on whether it'll be the one with all the damned hills.

Progress photo, with wet hair, because I am pleased by my biceps today:

Size 12 cargo pants, which fit well--a first since 2001. When not sick, I've upped my protein intake to 140 grams a day, and I'm seeing results in muscle definition. My biceps have a little notch at the bottom now--which you can't see in this photo, but hey.

For reference, a photo from 2006:

Blood pressure's down about 40/25 points, since you ask. ;-)


You inspire me.
*hug* You are pretty awesome your own self.
You have guns! I have the jealous.

You inspire me to be more active, thank you for that.
I am so damned pleased with those biceps. Michelle Obama better look to her laurels, because here I come. ;-)
Thank you.

I did an eleven mile run last week. I don't think I could have done that when I was 14 and on the track team.
And you did this all by yourself?

I'm very impressed. And yes, a bit jealous as well.

Well, I have had a huge amount of support from loved ones--and from the internets! Sparkpeople.com and Fitday.com were both totally instrumental in figuring out my nutrition.

(I'm not quite done yet; I'd like to lose another twenty pounds or so, and do pullups, and I have some yoga goals as yet unmet--but that seems pretty freaking insignificant at this point.)

It really does just amount to tracking what goes into my mouth, being moderate about it most of the time, eating things with a high nutrient density, and getting off my ass as close to every day as possible.
Daaaamn. That is one impressive arm. (And I assume the camera-holding arm is equal.) Go you!
Big props on the progress!!
wow, what a change. You look good. :)
How do you manage to contain so much awesome in one space? Great work!
I'm super impressed!!
Most. Excellent!

Not only have you been consistent but also *persistent" through the years. Many people go into weight loss for a quick fix not realizing it's an entire lifestyle change.

Makes me want to pull a few extra reps on deadlifts this evening!
Well done!!
I can't make out awesome bicep-age in this picture, but damn, you have some sweet neck definition going on.

You are the most inspiring :)
I am covetous of your magnificient arms.
Woo! Check you out! You are awesome! :DDD
You look mahvelous! Really, you look so great. Congratulations on everything you've accomplished!
You has dimples. And on your face too.
You still have the purple shoes, right? :)

Thank You for Sharing You with us. And for letting me into your bedroom!

HappyJollyMerry HannuKwanYuleMas!

yay for improving muscle definition, grats on the results for your efforts! :)
You look awesome, lady. Season's Greetings.
Yay! You are amazing!
