following: helenapatra's own diet
performance: losing 0.8 lb a week

I'm a 26 yrs old master student in landscape architecture, wife and mom. I've already lost almost 10 kg( around 20 pounds), but there is long way to go. Made a picture of the before, and looking forward for the pictures after. I have the graduation party soon(in about 2 months) and made a plan to slim down anything between 7 and 10 kg. Still didn't think about the dress ( I have several choices like some dark grey dress, orsome white dress with black squares on it or even some flower power dress). I know it might sound a bit shallow to wish to lose weight for the graduation party but it's my motivation and it makes me keep going.

A bit of weight and food history would sound like this: never had problems with weight before (was 53 to maximum 62 kg), but after getting pregnant simply gained soooo much weight (up to 82 kg or so). Gave birth, lost a bit then after some time got into dieting(my baby is already big) and proper sport(nowadays ciclying, ballet and some cardio) almost every day. Currently I'm around 71 kg, and looking frward to get back to my previous body(or something close to that).

That's for short. Hope to look nice for graduation party.

is there any tip to enjoy jogging?
Thanks everyone for your reply, it's good to read your ideas and will simply try to apply and decide to stick with what will fit to my case. For the begining will start with walking and some intervals, as some of you suggested, will also try join the challenge, check the heart rate and everything. Will see what comes out of all this. I am determined to give jogging a try for a time, and see maybe I can start liking such.

Hello people. Everybody is suggesting me to do jogging, but I simply hate running and would do whatever else. Is there anyway to start enjoying such? What are the tips to keep joging for more than 10 minutes without feeling you are dying or without getting bored. What can you do about jogging when cold weather or when the park is too far, or the street is full of straydogs?
