Go Becky Go

I'm Becky, 23 year old Florida native living in Colorado. Marathon runner trying to get back into running, I also do capoeira on occasion and like to go on adventures sometimes. I'm a certified EMT (but still trying to get a job as one). 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 am pretty ambitious and am signed up for some races this year to boost my motivation, including a half that goes up a 14er, and a 50k in the mountains.

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: 5'1"
HW: 174 lbs
LW: 142 lbs (Sept/2011)
CW: 172.4 lbs (3/11/13)
Goal: to run fast and be healthy.

I’m not entirely sure if this picture depresses me or inspires me.
This picture is of me beginning of October 2011. I looked great, felt great.
Fast forward to me now, almost 40 pounds heavier, I don’t feel bad or anything, but I do miss my semblance to abs. Where did I go wrong? I got lazy, I started a full time job so I don’t cook, moved back home again. Add the boyfriend and there was an additional 10 pounds. It’s all my fault though. I have had the option to make better choices but I haven’t.
Coming across this picture yesterday, made me realize I need to stop being lazy and get over the fact that I am an adult that works full time and just make time to workout and eat right.
Which is why today I got my ass up before work and worked out. I didn’t do much, but it was a start. And I may be going to capoeira later, but it depends because my sister is in the hospital and has been since last night due to some crazy stomach issues.
My goal was to run a mile, I didn’t run the whole way because I was trying to fix something on my garmin and walked a bit for that, but I think I did good. I am thinking of maybe doing a small goal of trying to run a mile and do some kind of WOD each day.
Today’s WOD: (And I’ll call this a WOD very loosely, it is a CrossFit type thing but I maybe only really did like half of this because my strength is shit right now)
5 rounds:
1 minute handstand
1 minute hold at bottom of a squat
Killed me! Especially after running even if it was just a mile. I’m out of shape. But I will go back to being strong again. And umm..yeah.
