Ignorance Is (Fattening) Bliss

Updated: 2/16/16
Hi there! I’m Marissa; I turn 30 this year and am the wife of a former Marine and mom to the two MOST AMAZING girls. 2016 is going to be a year of re-birth for me. I’ve been on sparkpeople for years and years so it was interesting to look back at some of my goals from the last time I was active on spark, 2013. I reached my goal of running a marathon, Eugene Marathon in April of 2013, and I finished in 4:51:12. It was an amazing experience and I was so proud. ...

Hi there! I’m Marissa; I turn 30 this year and am the wife of a former Marine and mom to the two MOST AMAZING girls. 2016 is going to be a year of re-birth for me. I’ve been on sparkpeople for years and years so it was interesting to look back at some of my goals from the last time I was active on spark, 2013. I reached my goal of running a marathon, Eugene Marathon in April of 2013, and I finished in 4:51:12. It was an amazing experience and I was so proud. Unfortunately after that I started sliding back down the mountain. From such high highs to such low lows. That fall I got injured, a re-occurring tendonitis in my lower calf/ankle that side-lined me. I would take breaks from activity for weeks only to have pain when I started back. The doctors couldn’t prescribe anything but costly PT and rest. My food addiction re-surfaced and I took a new job where we had movie theater style popcorn for every meeting. Even after I moved office I got assigned to a new desk right next to a candy mess stocked with cookies and licorice. It was like putting an alcoholic in a bar. The 94 pounds I had lost and kept off from 2007-2013 came roaring back. Now I find myself back where is started so many years ago knowing what it takes to get results but having a hard time taking those first steps. I hope sparkpeople will again be a fire under my feet to get me back to the person I know I am inside; an athlete.
My goals for 2016:
Run HM this summer under 2:30
Run HM this winter under 2:10 *my lifetime PR is 2:06
Lose 61 lbs by my 30th bday (8/10) (aka 2.44 lbs/week)
Complete an at home workout program in its entirety
Begin training for a full marathon in 2017

Great Quotes:
"It's hard to be fat, and it's hard to be thin, pick your hard."
"Now if you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, moon, and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -George S. Patton
"Run when you can, walk if you have to, crawl if you must; just never give up. " -- Dean Karnazes

You can totally do this! I'm back too, just a week in, and feeling amazing. Discouraging after regaining, but going back to basics and getting back into a groove of what worked before… finally something clicks into place... After a week, you forget that it doesn't drain you, but rather it is very invigorating!!! Almost like the busier you are, the more you get done… I just KNOW you are going to kill it in your new comeback round!
