Workout: 2 mile run, P90x- Chest & Back and Ab Ripper X
Hello, my name is Phyllis and I have a serious problem. During my last 9 month bout of depression I have subconsciously self-punishing my self through by eating copious amounts of food. Due to this, I have gained ~15 pounds. Remember a few months ago when I opened up about my battle with Myasthenia Gravis and I said “this is a really hard blog to write”. Well, this picture is a REALLY hard picture for me to show…
At my all time heaviest I weight about 135. This was because I was taking medicine that made you significantly gain weight. Here I am, nearing my heaviest weight (aka, my deepest moment of depression). I know what a lot of you are thinking, “Okay, bitch…123 is my dream weight.” Well, at a measly 5’1″, every little pound shows. I’ve found that with my bone structure and height I’m best around 110 with muscles. Right now, though, I’m more stuff and fluff than lean, mean machine.
So, since I’ve been feeling tip-top, I’m back on the exercise wagon. To help give me some motivation, I signed up for She Runs Strong’s September Miles Madness. Here’s the deal:
- Click on the image below and read the rules (I’m lazy and don’t want to post them all).
- Sign up for a team – Team Ashley or Team Cait. I’m team Ashley, because she’s a AZ runner and I like to support all things southwest.
- Every week send your team captain the number of miles you have run. At the end of the month, the team with the highest number of miles wins!
- The winning team will win some awesome swag and you will have a chance to win a Road ID, a sports bra from Handful Running Bras, and a Clean Bottle!!
