Opps, I did it again....

You are not gonna believe this, but I did it again. I went through ANOTHER pair of workout shoes. You know how I was crying about it LAST month when I started fat camp?

Well here I am again. I noticed last week that I had a hole in the toe. I guess when you triple your workouts, your shoes only last a third as long. I really need two pairs - cross trainers and running shoes. But running shoes are so awesome and comfortable. The shoes I like are $130 after tax. I found them on a website called See Jane Run which will save me $15 due to no tax and free shipping, so I just ordered them.

I may try and find a pair of cross trainers as well. This maybe harder since there are far less of them than running shoes.

In other news, today is weigh-in day because I am having my cheat meal tonight. And the results? 1 pound lost. Now a pound is a pound but I am telling you all, I have never worked so hard for a pound. And that puts me at 200 pounds exactly. Damn it! Maybe next week will be onederland.

Yesterday my trainer changed my diet slightly. Cut me down to about 1200 calories (from 1600). Just to see if we can get one last drop in weight out of the summer. I also have to spread that out over 6 meals. Yesterday I was in so much pain muscle wise that I decided to take today off from working out (unheard of for me - that is a lot of pain). I was looking forward to sleeping in. But I was up at 5:15 because I was STARVING. Cutting out one fourth of your calories leaves your body wanting more.

The bottom line is, if I am going to starve (at least for part of the day) and continue working out hard next week I better see onederland. Do you hear that uncooperative body of mine? Learn the math.

Until then I shall shop for some shoes and enjoy a cheat meal today. Hopefully you all will have better weigh-ins than I did this week. Onward and downward!

You are almost in oneland! A pound is one pound closer to your goal!!

I go through shoes pretty quickly, but have never worn through the toe! I have a funny picture of that in my head.

Keep up the good work!

I love my running shoes too! Why do they have to be so darn expensive?

Running shoes are expensive, but so worth it IMHO. Glad you are giving yourself a new pair!

Crossing my fingers and toes for you to see onderland next weigh in!!!

I think I am actually running through my actual toes, lol!

Seriously, onederland will be yours next week with your regime. And 1200 cals, seriously? Hunger!

Sorry to hear about the shoes... at least you don't have the problem of having too much dust on them. Way to run them into the ground. Congrats on the weight loss. Looking forward to hearing how next weeks weigh in goes!

If you pee before weigh-in, you're golden! You're so close! My sneakers are Adidas Bounce and I LOVE them. They have so much support and feel great. I've been giving them quite the workout and they're still holding up. I think you can find them online for a reasonable amount.

Can't wait to celebrate with you!

THANK YOU for commenting today...i needed that badly. unfortunately i shared with my fiance about the blog, my post trying to be honest and it backfired. i asked him to listen without prejudice and his response was 'You made that whole blog about how i don't support you because you said 1600 calories' and he just left the house. i guess some things have to get worse before they get better.
