Just keep running...

I'm Susi, a mom who is determined to lead a healthier life and be a good role model for my little girl.

The challenge, of course, is finding time to fit exercise into an already packed schedule. My life as a working mom (is there any other kind?) is already non-stop, and my DH is in school full-time, which just adds to the insanity.

But what's life without a little wackiness?!

My plan is to lose 1/2 - 1 lb each week, until I'm finally at my goal of 120. ...

My plan is to lose 1/2 - 1 lb each week, until I'm finally at my goal of 120.


I'll achieve this by:

* A minimum of 30 minutes of exercise each day

* Eating cleanly, and consistently tracking everything I eat


To stay sane (and fit everything in my schedule), this includes:

* Alternating afternoon runs with early-morning workouts, as my schedule allows

* Including DD in workouts whenever I can, either in the jogging stroller or having mother-daughter Pilates sessions

* Batch cooking my breakfasts and lunches for the week

* Planning dinners ahead of time each week, so we don't resort to take-out or packaged meals


Update:

I'm training for my second 1/2 marathon, and will continue to focus on running. I plan to do 3 short (3-5 mile) runs per week in the afternoons after work, and then a long run on the weekends. I'll be incorporating twice weekly yoga classes for flexibility, and filling in with other cardio and strength training on non-running days.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I actually was using the Neutrogena Pore Refining cleanser and it was making me break out really bad, and it was in addition to the clarisonic that I was already using and all sorts of other stuff. I guess my skin doesn't react well to whatever the active ingredient was in that. I've switched back to Benzol Peroxide as my skin care product, but I use the Neutrogena Pore Refining toner as my toner of choice. Thanks for the suggestion!

Thank you for the advice yesterday! Pretty much everyone said the same thing - up my calories. I'm going to do it! I don't know why I didn't think of that. Your problem might be something that simple as well. Are YOU eating enough? Are YOU sure? LOL
Let's just not give up!

Lady, you are on fire this June! What has gotten into you? And can you bottle some of it up and send it to me?!? Ever since I hit 120 last week, I've only exercised twice and now it's been FOUR days since any real workout (we walked around the zoo and did paddleboats on Sunday, so that was at least something). My eating has been pretty good, if not stellar; I'm calorie cycling in an attempt to not feel deprived while maintaining 120-121. I am definitely still trying to figure out a good balance between weight, fitness, and nutrition!

Thanks so much for your encouragement and support! It makes this bumpy road easier to ride with great Sparkfrienda by your side! Xoxo
