burst into summer beginning… {the ugly truth} – The Shrinking Jeans of Melissa


June 15, 2011 By Lissa

I seem to have sort of an all-or-nothing personality. The end of 2010 found me giving it my all and having success. The first half of 2011 has been pretty much a derailing of all that success and then some.

I can feel it in my thighs as they smash together when I walk. Not just squish, they are smashed and almost chafe-worthy. Gross. My awesome Silver jeans that I bought last winter aren’t so awesome to put on. Tug.of.War.

This year has been TOUGH. It was a long winter, add in family stress, then two deaths of very close family, and apparently this is what I get.

I am miserable with the way I feel. I know I am capable of doing this, hell, I CAN DO THIS. {why is it so hard?}

Today is a new day, and I will focus. FOCUS, Lissa, FOCUS!

I have an awesome Team and they are going to kick my ass when I need it, right team? I am excited to get started on this challenge, and I know that when this 11 weeks is said and done, I will be back feeling good in my jeans.

Today’s Weigh-In? 220.2 – That is up NINETEEN frickin’ pounds since the end of 2010. Sigh.

My plan of action? South Beach. It works for me. {when I stick to it. weird.}

In case you didn’t see it, here is my race report from my 1/2 marathon on the 5th! FIVE DAYS left to support me and donate! Help!
