Come on girl, you know you can do it!

Despite my weigh ins, tracking, blogs, and exercise attempts, I'm still bobbing around like a cork on the ocean. Some days I've lost weight, some days my weight is up. I haven't made the progress I had hoped, and that may be due to the lack of my buy-in to the task at hand.

I'm reading a lot about cognitive therapy, affirming my commitment 2 times daily, logging nutrition, and setting fitness goals that are challenging but that I KNOW I can achieve.

I love the community of Spark People. Together we can accomplish so much more than we can as individuals. I have been a member for quite a while, and I am thankful for the relationships with people who are real life inspirations to me - DAILY!

So, I'm going to keep it simple - stay focused, eat healthy, forgive myself for screwing up and for making myself feel like a failure...and I will persist. This is not a sprint, but a marathon. By December (2012) I hope I will have restored my credibility and my normal sized waistline.

Train for 3 Rivers Run 5K on 10/13/12

Run a half marathon in March 2013.

Lose some of this FLUBBER so I can be slim and fast(er) anyway!

Faster, not Fatter!!


.....dare I shoot for a full marathon by age 60???

My Program:
My past 3 years have been a series of achievements and starting over. Multiple operations to "fix" one from 2008 were not serious but stopped my activity for months. I want to run a half marathon in the Spring of 2013, so that means that I have to start NOW building muscle and working on functional movement.

Thank you for coming by my Fitspiration blog. I thought that during this busy month it would be a good reminder how big of an impact doing little things can have.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Ellen ~ emoticon for stopping by and commenting on my blog. I am trying to take care of myself....which isn't easy with a sick Santa in the house! Thanks for the info about the podcast (although I really don't know what a podcast is! LOL I'll read up on the subject!) Sounds great, esp. if it helped you bust a plateau, worth giving it a try! Thanks again.........Una Lee
