The Constant Challenge

I've been fighting to lose my extra weight for years. I am always successful in losing the weight, but not so much in keeping it off. This has to be the last time I go through this. I need to finally lose the weight and feel good about my body.

Two years ago my husband and I started running races. We ran a half marathon in September 2013 and let ourselves go after that. We are now getting back in shape and signing up for more races.

Things are going... not very well, from a diet/fitness perspective. This time of year is very tough for us financially, and I am allowing it to make me miserable.

I cannot WAIT until April is over and gone.

On the plus side, I got in a pretty awesome snowball fight with a bunch of kids yesterday. That was fun!

How are the leg muscles today? Have you been able to find some relief?

And thanks for reading my blog! I've been streaking at 10K steps since 1/2/15, so that's 34 days now. I work at a desk, too, but I manage get around 6K in a typical work day. I used to just go home and sit on my couch for most of the evening, but I've been doing various things to make sure I hit 10K before I relax - sometimes its a 30 minute jog, sometimes its an hour at the gym, sometimes its a walk with my Hubby. I feel like I should be exercising harder, more consistently, but for now, I'm happy with just moving!

Getting in steps during the work day is hard, but I try to take time to walk to the kitchen to refill my water cup (and subsequently to the bathroom) several times throughout the day, which keeps me moving. And it's pretty cliche, but I try to park my car farther whenever possible - on the top floor of the parking structure means I have to do two flights of stairs up and down. Little things add up!
