Getting Back Into Top Shape

In the not too distant past, I consistently placed in the top 10% range within my age group. However, since that time, I have, regrettably, put on a few pounds. I say regrettably, because I keep telling myself, "how could I have let it happen?" This time, I resolve to keep the fat off. But, time will tell if I can actually do that.

It is hard work! You can put on pounds so easily, but it is so hard to take them off. The body just seems to be so stingy in giving up its stores of energy. One of the hardest things to do is to change habits. And this is exactly what I need to do. I need to work on my eating habits. For me, it is not so much what kind of food I eat, but the quantity. When I don't have as much self-control, I eat way too much for what I need to maintain my metabolism. I eat because food is so yummy, but I need to recognize that there is beauty and grace in moderation.

For some of you that know me more recently, you might think that I've always been the fit and athletic type. The truth is that I'm not, I used to be 50 lbs. overweight. I know how to loose weight; it is just a matter of time that I get back to where I was.

Today, we (the Arroyo Trail Blazers) did the Malibu Creek Trail Challenge 14 mile run. The results? Well, let's just say that I still have a lot of work ahead of me. Someone who knows me but haven't seen me in a while came up and asked if I had gotten a podium position. I guess she just assumed that I would podium; or she was just being nice. Hearing that, I kind of felt bad for myself. :(
