Coffee and Dance Party

Wednesday, October 14, 2009

Sitting here in my office. The husband is gone downstate for an eye appointment. I eventually made my way to YouTube and found some good music. I just couldn't help myself - I got up and started dancing around with Georgia (my Shih Tzu/Westie girl). I LOVE dancing. It's so fun and makes me feel good!

I made coffee too. Not such a coffee person (unless it's a mocha - with skim of course), but for some reason I've been craving it lately!! Now I'll be up all night!

I need someone to get me motivated. Ever since my last 5K (which went well), I have been slacking - bad. I just can not seem to find the motivation to exercise!! I don't know why. I've been a lot more tired lately and getting headaches and dizzy spells. I NEVER used to get headaches (and of course not the dizzy spells). I just don't know what the deal is. I haven't changed the way I'm eating (and I normally don't drink coffee, so that's not it). Maybe my body is telling me I need to get exercise! ;) I have Friday off and will spend it visiting my family. I do not have any plans for this weekend, so hopefuly maybe I'll find some motivation to do some exercise!

I need to start watching my calories again too. I was doing okay until I had chocolate chips in the house to bake some goodies for our family trip to 'Just A Plain Farm.' Those cc's are almost gone, so maybe things will get better!

I really wanted to get down to 120# by the end of October - just a personal goal on my way to another goal. I'm thinking I may nee to, once again, readjust my goal. :( 128.4 this morning and with only 17 days left in October, I doubt I can lose 8.4#. Yikes. Perhaps I should try??

I need help!

Well, tomorrow is my last 5K of the season I believe. There are a couple more that I'd LOVE to run, but I don't want to pay more than $40 to run 3.1 miles. :) Call me cheap, but I can run that for free any day of the week around my neighborhood! I am hoping to beat my best time though. I ran 5.2 miles yesterday, so I'm hoping my legs aren't super sore tomorrow (I'm always the most sore 2 days post work-out). We'll see. I'm hoping it's not SUPER freezing cold out either - like it is now. Forecast says 46 ("real feel" 41) and showers for 9 AM when the race starts. Ick. Ah well, won't be the first race I've run in the rain. Won't be the last. Gotta love the runnin' though!

After this, my goal for the winter is to work up to 10K mode. I'm thinkin' next summer I'll do most 10K's unless 5K's are all that's offered, then of course I'll do a 5. :) We'll see how that goes. My real goal is to get a bit more physically fit and lose a few of these pounds I've packed on. The past few mornings I've actually been down with my weight, but I sure do not feel like it around the belly and when I get dressed - clothes tight as ever. Yuck. Gotta work on this! :)

Well, I'm sitting here as Erin is sleeping - he worked last night. Our shower is not functioning at this time as we're waiting for the mud to dry. Gosh, I can't wait until the bathroom part of the remodeling process is done!! A shower is something I can not live without. SO, here I am , on the internet, on SP and I've nearly run out of options of things to I thought I'd try blogging. Perhaps this will keep me more motivated? I don't know.

I have revised my page colors...and my goals. I'm shooting for a smaller goal weight of 120# by the end of October. I need to get on this. I was 130.6 this morning and it's just so frustrating! I'm really going to start watching my calorie intake here at home. I do great for breakfast and lunch, but when I get home, it's all over from there. I need to just do it. We've been going out to eat about once per week lately too, which is very much unlike us, but fun to say the least. I need to start making better choices in that area as well. I always think..."Well, since we rarely eat out, I'll treat myself to whichever meal I want tonight." Unfortunately, eating out more often meals more high fat, high carb meals. Urg....I'll stop that now.

I'm running a 5K tomorrow. I haven't ran in about 2 weeks. Yikes! I'm a bit scared. Not that 3.1 miles is anything to be scared of, but my competition with myself is strong and I always have to beat my previous time. Don't think it'll happen tomorrow. It's not that I didn't want to "practice" and run the past few weeks, but I swear I've been super busy after work and on weekends! I KNOW I can fit it in, but I also know I'd be exhausted and very crabby about it, so I didn't. Bad me. I am also signed up for another one next week. I WILL run this week to prepare. I promise myself. I will also keep running from here on out. I would like to take 1st in my age range most of the time next summer...if not al lthe time. I know it's something I can do, but I just haven't put the effort towards preparing myself for that. :) I will do it.

I am going now, to finish SPing, then going for a run. Not sure if one run in two weeks, the day before a 5K will hinder me. I'm assuming it will, but I want to run. Yey me. emoticon

    The 5K went well. I took 1st in my age division, 3rd overall for female runners (two 13-year-olds beat me - how sad), and 7th overall for the entire 5K. Not too bad. Got my best 5K time so far as well (which is my ultimate goal when I run). I'm running one tomorrow morning as well. I think it'll be the last for the season, so hopefully I can do alright. I'd love to beat my time yet again! :)
