Still on a Merry-Go-Round of weight loss and exercise.
Yes.. I've regained some of the weight that I've lost. I know how and why I did what I did. So, I'm back on my plan.!
2013 will be a year for training for my very first full Marathon. Marine Corps Marathon on October 27th. Scared and excited all at the same time!
I'm following a low grain, high veggie and protein diet.. because my body reacts best to it. As long as I get lots of veggies, my body loses weight. When I eat more bread and carbs, I may be in my calorie range, but I don't lose.
It's all about putting it all together for the next 6 months! Drop some fat, and gain muscle. Plan is made. Now to execute!

I am watching my calories. I track everything in my food tracker. I don't really have any 'banned' foods, I just look at my calorie range, and see if I can fit it all in. I do plan to eat more than 5 servings of fruit and veggies daily though!
I drink LOTS of water! Usually I have my 8 cups done by lunch.
I love to exercise. My current plan:
- Run: training for Half Marathon.. plan from Runners World.com
-Cross train 2 to 3 times a week. Elliptical, stationary bike, etc... Usually at home on my elliptical.
-Adding weights and strength training to my routine. At home. Using free weights, and my own body weight. Lunges, squats, pushups, ab work. I don't need many fancy machines to be able to get a really good strength workout.

From IPA-RAY: Her 10 Commandments of Running:
1. Running should be a joy, not a chore.
2. Stretch only after warming up.
3. If it�s pain, refrain. If it�s sore, ignore.
4. Being undertrained is better than being overtrained.
5. Have only positive thoughts at the starting line.
6. Don�t be afraid to drop out.
7. Speedwork helps, but also can hurt.
8. Run your way.
9. Thou shalt crosstrain.
10. Cold weather can hurt, hot weather can kill.
Success isn't measured by how many times you fall... but by how many times you pick your self back up!
You are where you are because of the choices you made... or were let others make for you. What is better for you????

The applesauce was GOOD! And...it was only apples, cinnamon, and cloves - no added sugar! I had apples that were about to go bad (they were not very good eating apples...if they were, they would have been gone), and I couldn't stand for them to go to waste. My sister had mentioned slow cooker applesauce (or apple butter), so I googled recipes. What a win!

If I could get myself out of bed to the shower, I'd like it, too. But, 9/10 times I hit the snooze button until late. Today, it was set for 7 am and I overslept til 10:30 am. I was late for work.
