10 pounds to go

It's been 3 weeks since the marathon and I've basically done almost nothing since. I hurt my foot a couple days after the race and couldn't even stand on it. It's feeling pretty good now but the scale is 5 pounds over what I was on race day morning! That's right. 129.8 pounds.

This is completely unacceptable, and I'm wondering if some of the processed food I eat is contributing to my IT band stuff. Inflammatory food?Why do I mention IT band? Because even though I haven't done anything for 3 weeks, it hurts worse now than when I ran the marathon. I'm messed up.

I have started Jillian Michael's Making the Cut book program this morning. I am following the food plan (loosely - I can't afford all that fish), and the workout program circuit training. In each circuit she has a 1 minute jump rope as part of the workout. Holy crapola! I can run a couple miles but put me on a jump rope for a minute? I'm dying.

It's a very interesting way of working out so I'm excited to see if I can get some definition. I also have a goal weight of 120 pounds. So I need to lose 10 pounds while following the working out stuff. Did I mention no desserts for 30 days?

Good luck to me!
