Go Becky Go

I'm Becky, 24 year old Florida native living in Colorado. Marathon runner trying to get back into running. I like to lift, and am currently working on "getting back on the wagon" for weight loss. I originally started this blog and lost 25 pounds and kept it off for a long time, then life happened and I'm up higher than my original starting weight. I do Crossfit, also. And I love Harry Potter.

This is not a weight loss blog, it's my blog and I talk about whatever I want including weight loss and food and boys and running and drinking and lots of pictures of myself. I have little to no filter when it comes to the things I say, I am kinda opinionated, so sometimes I'm awkward, but I'm pretty awesome.

Height: 5'2"

HW: 191 lbs

LW: 142 lbs (Sept/2011)

CW: 184.4 lbs (6/2/14)

Goal: to run fast and be healthy.

I love talking to new people, so if you have any questions just ask!

I love my newest capoeira shirt. This was from this past batizado.

I have one negative thing about me to say, and then I have some positive things.

Negative. I feel myself getting bigger. I’ve been trying to deny it because it hasn’t affected my capacity to do anything, but I feel it in my clothes and see it in my (lack of) muscle definition. I weighed myself this morning and saw a number I wasn’t happy with. At all. And ironically I drank less this weekend than last weekend. I don’t get it. I’m eating healthy, not indulging in anything, I’m hoping it’s just because I need more capoeira and to follow my training better.

But still. Nutrition is the key factor in losing weight, and I keep thinking I’m doing things right, but maybe I am eating too much. I eat all the time. Good, nutrient dense, healthy food. I just don’t know.

Anyway. Positives. It was fucking cold outside today. 20ish degrees, with wind. And of course, tonight is Tuesday so I had my Jack Quinn’s 5k. I didn’t eat anything while there, and most importantly, I DIDN’T DRINK ALCOHOL. So that was good. I’m proud that I went even though most don’t, it was fun. I also met a kid in my A&P class that does the run and we talked (and he’s cute!). He ran in SHORTS. I was in two pairs of compression tights and yoga pants (might’ve been a bit excessive but I was okay). So yeah. Turned down beer and food. Then I went to capoeira and did the beginner and intermediate classes! It was interesting and difficult, as per usual.

Tl;dr: I ran in the cold, feel fat, and went to capoeira.

  4. hopemanifesto said: Alcohol = diuretic, so it’s not too surprising you may see a drop in the scale following a weekend of drinking. Reduce cardio, adjust lifting, reassess diet, profit. Especially the first part, in my opinion.
