Lap Band Talk

So it's really no suprise that Alex at LBT wasn't willing to make a change and have Susan step down as mod. That's ok Karma bites you in the ass everytime. I obviously won't be going back to LBT along with many of my friends.

I would like to let everyone know a little something about the site. When you're new and researching the band the place seems great. Although once you begin to look at the inner workings of the site, the mods, how things are handled, and the favortism it's very child like.

The main mod in question is Susan. Susan has made herself an open book. While on the boards she has made it clear that...

1. Her husband was bumping uglies with his ex wife
2. Her daughter in law hates her
3. She logs in as her husband on his facebook
4. She isn't able to fight her own battles
5. Doesn't take responsibility for her actions

Theres many reasons that alot of people at LBT have issues with her. Mine is mostly because she decided to pick on a friend of mine. After having a 'bad week' she decided to post things on her facebook such as "She was going to have to put the smack down" and Telling Rhonda to shut up and have another glass of wine. As an adult and a mod her emotions should be left out of it.

The other reason I have a problem with her being a mod is she doesn't even have a god damn lap band. She has a sleeve. YAY for you Susan.

My recommendation to you Susan.. Get off the computer, spend time with your family, and work on your self esteem. Running to a forum where you know no one to spew your life about your family is wrong. Fix it... To do that you're gonna have to step back into reality.

Oh and PS Alex over at LBT makes coinage off the ads he has on his site.. They aren't places he endorses because he believes in them. They are just willing to pay the most to be on there.

/run a SUCCESS!

This morning I completed yet another run on the week 2 c25k Run. This was my 2nd run of the week. I am trying to get 4 runs in this week with a run every other day.
I plan to redo week 2 next week... But I did breeze through the entire run today without many problems.

Week 2 of the C25K

So last night after trying to find every possible excuse for not running.... I decided nope wasn't going to cheat myself like that. So last night I downloaded Suzs podcast her version of the c25k week2! I rocked it. I thought after about a 1/4 of the way through it that I didn't have to finish the whole run since it was the first time working on week 2.

NOPE I though why would I want to /fail at this? Push yourself Brandy.

I did and I reaped the rewards. Today I have tons of energy and a sense of accomplishment. I can feel the workout in my muscles!! YAY!

This is my 3rd week of going back to running and I have made sure to run every other day to avoid injuries but it is 1 extra run per week and I am loving it. This week I should get 4 runs in.

I love my Lap Band!

So no I haven't lost anything since starting to run again 2 weeks ago... That's ok I feel a sense of accomplishment. This morning I was up and out the door at 430 am for a run with my dog. I had to sneak in a run this morning so I didn't get off track as I am leaving town this afternoon! I can do this ;)

I am setting a goal for me to meet so I am working towards something other than a number on the scale... 10 runs at a time.

So yesterday was my 2nd run of my 2nd week of couch 2 5k. However, I am repeating week 1. I want to be very comfortable before I move on. I do not want to set myself up for failure.

I am contemplating finding a local 5k that I can do at the end of this year that will make me have to keep going.. Wouldn't wanna be the last across the line...

Couch to 5k

So I met up with my lil running partner Angi who ran me into the ground. Props to her omg I gotta lot of catching up to do. I have one more run this week but I am confident that I can do it.

I haven't weighed myself and don't think that its feasable that I would have lost anything by now. Plus I haven't been religously weighing myself to see what my average fluctuation is.. After a week or so I should know what my highs and lows are.

Plus there are some new running shorts I want that are so cute but I am not getting them till I go down a size the ones I have are on the verge of being just a little too loose.

I hope to run right outta my shorts!

I did it!

I put on my big girl panties and running shoes and hit the road last night. I did a short brisk walk then did intervals of running / walking. I didnt have a timer with me so it was an impromptu version of the c25k. I did it for 26 minutes.. Not bad I got a good sweat goin and my legs felt it so I am workin it!
