The countdown begins

I signed up for another half marathon in April. April 4th to be exact. Three weeks from today I will be running, jogging, walking my way through 13.1 miles. Mostly walking I'm sure since my school schedule has left me no time to train or get ready. I will push through the pain, the blood sweat and most definitely tears, just to get to that finish line.
I am up several pounds since the last half I ran and I know that will make a huge impact on my endurance. But the organizers have graciously allowed me to start up to an hour before the race officially begins. Helz yah!
So my countdown begins.. 21 days..
Let's do this!

Not losing, but still pluggin along

I haven't really been motivated to lose since school got serious. I know I shouldn't use that as an excuse, but it isn't much of a priority right now. I figure I have a few months left then I can hit it hard and lose my flub once and for all.
A great motivator is seeing all of the amazing posts from everyone that have been working so hard and actually losing. I am living through you. For real.
I am signed up to "run" a half marathon in April. The 4th. I have not prepared at all. I will probably fall on my face halfway through, But if I have to crawl to the finish line, I will get there.
One great thing, they are allowing some of us, ah hem, slower folks... start early. Up to an hour early! Shiz balls! Hooray for me! So.. maybe, just maybe, I won't be the last one across the line.
Fist pump
I am still in major pain every day, but keep pushing myself to get through, knowing there is an end. and my bed in sight.
I downloaded a cute little app, plant nanny or something like that.. that reminds you to "water your plant" meaning yourself. I keep forgetting, and my plant dies.
I really need to work on water.
And getting ready for my 13.1.
If only I could hook my laptop and all my books up somehow so I can "run" with them.
I say "run" because turtles in quicksand are faster than me running.
There you have it.
Life in a nutshell.
Oh and as far as no soda goes.. fail. fail. fail. I made it two days. Boo.
