Well, guess what?

A couple of weeks ago I decided to just start signing up for races in order to actually get me moving. Prior to that I had been saying that once I started running again I would sign up for races. Well, that didn't work. So I switched it around and decided to sign up before I had started running. Guess what? That worked. I've been running fairly consistently and feeling pretty good about it.

What I haven't been feeling really good about is the way I eat. I keep saying I'm going to eat right and track what I eat and I don't do it. So I decided to bite the bullet and join Weight Watchers. I keep saying that their plan promotes you eating junk because of the way the point system is calculated. Well, guess what? They changed the system. I like it from what I've seen and I decided to give it a try. The truth of the matter is, I was kidding myself. I used WW before and was wildly successful with it. It was what got me so low and started me running and doing triathlons. But then I got it into my head that it would no longer work for me if I was an "athlete." Well, guess what? Now I'm not an athlete, I'm just overweight. So I just signed up for the WW Monthly pass which allows me online access as well as meeting access. So I'm going to give it a serious go - starting today since I've only had coffee. I need to go shopping anyway so this is a perfect time to start.

So there it is. Time to change things up. I'm now off to work out..
