Wow... I really bombed it the first days back to work... like bad. :/

I feel discouraged even though I didnt do as poorly today. But boy did I bomb it yesterday. I just stress ate for two days straight...

Well, here is to moving forward...

    Yup- all you can do is go forward from today and make those small decisions that add up to progress. No sense in dwelling on overeating in the past! Just try to avoid it in the future. Maybe try some other ways to destress- a bath, some yoga, or read a book maybe?

October Goals

Monday, October 03, 2011

My goal for October is to become better fit.

I would like more muscle and better toned everything.

I am going to do crunches and push ups 3 days a week.

I am going to exercise daily.

Running, spinning, swimming, walking, etc....

I will try to do a better job tracking calories!

Here goes nothing!


Half Marathon

Sunday, October 02, 2011

Well, my knee held up great! The STICK is fabulous! My sniffles didnt phase me a bit!

Ironically, I had twisted my foot a little while picking up my race packet- thought nothing of it... until mile 2... By 9, I knew I needed to have EMT examine. They didnt think it was broken, so I hobbled to mile 13.1... I could not walk another step. It took everything to get on to the bus!
So tomorrow, I will go to the chiropractor and have her look at that too. :/

But half marathon is not shabby at all. ;0) I will save my goal of finishing a full marathon for another day!

    Congrats on running the marathon, and yes there will be a better day to complete one. You were very wise to discontinue the race when you did, sure don't need further damage done.

Marathon tomorrow.... yikes!

Saturday, October 01, 2011

So 9/10, I got SUPER sick. I ran 2 out of 14 miles and managed to walk 6.

I had such a bad fever the following weekend.

Last weekend was my first week back to running since then! My longest run has been 7 miles since then. :/

Marathon is tomorrow! YIKES!

My knee started hurting again and I talked with a chiropractor who recommended the STICK. http://www.thestick.com/ No joke- this thing is a amazing..

So good and bad news is that my body is out of wack and that is what is causing the pain in my knee. I should be back in shape soon. She is going to adjust me and give me some strengthening exercises...

So Marathon tomorrow- my goal is to run 5, walk 5, run 5, walk 5 and finish the last 6.2. If I start hurting too badly, I will just put my goal on hold and ride the bus. I don't want to hurt myself trying!

So I think that is good and bad news. I am happy that all the symptoms that are happening are explained by the vertebra that are off. She said my whole body is shifted to the left making my right hip and shoulder higher. I have been running at a slant! I just wish I had found her sooner. :/ My former chiropractor thought it was an over use injury... not true- cause the STICK truly helps! booo.

So that is it for me~ After the marathon, I am going to swim that whole week. I am going to get back into shape and stick to 5k-10 miles after.

Send me a prayer ladies! I will need it tomorrow!!!

    Good luck with the race. We will be at Cheer Station #13. Our friend Seigo is running in the Mudonna costume, so we will be cheering him on, and everyone else who comes by. Have a good day! But, yes, please take it easy when you need to so you can race again another day!!
Have fun! emoticon emoticon

Oh bother!

My weight is up... am I eating well- nope. Hmmmm. I have been WAY more motivated to excercise and even ran 12 miles on Saturday... but the eating is just not good. I knew I should not eat fried chicken and chips with dip on Labor day. I tried briefly to talk myself out of even buying it, but I bought and ate it... Where is the will power????

I keep telling myself I will lose the weight, but when? I need to focus now. I know I can do it... Will it taste as yummy? Probably. Will I feel better? Definitely
