My journey to lose 55lbs and run 13.1 miles...it should be quite the ride!
Sunday, 15 February 2009
Went to see Slumdog Millionaire tonight and it certainly lived up to expectations. It was fantastic. So pretty, such a good soundtrack, and the child actors were brilliant.
I saw Dev Patel on a chat show the other night and he pointed out that the gameshow host pronounces mill-Ionaire, as mill-onaire, which I then noticed EVERY time the word was said! I also loved the dance track at the end. Bollywood/India has such great dance routines. Anyone know if there is a Bollywood-style workout video? That would be fun!
So, dinner tonight was a high point one. I marinated a tuna steak in soy sauce, garlic and red chilli and baked sweet potato fries that I had coated in 1 point of garlic olive oil, salt, pepper and paprika. The portion was huge, and at 6 points just for the giant potato, I probably should have saved some of it...but damn it was too good to do that! Peas, brocolli and sugarsnaps on the side made this a perfect and filling pre-movie theatre dinner. The photo is making me hungry!
Oh, and I did my half hour on the treadmill: day 1 of week 5 of c25k before bodypump. Unfortunately, I think the combination of such a good run yesterday, and more running today meant that I couldn't get in the zone for bodypump. I took a bunch of water breaks, actually leaving the class between tracks and felt myself switching to lighter weights than I'd used for the same tracks last week. Oh well...it was still an hour spent sweating and toning muscles!
I started this journey January 1st, 2009 at 220lbs.
After following the Couch-to-5k programme I officially caught the running bug and ran my very first half-marathon in September.
I lost 25lbs in 2009 and now my goal for 2010 is to finish Project 55 and get down to my goal weight of 165. Only 30lbs to go!
I'm also running another half-marathon in October and hoping to beat last year's time of 2:37
