Sometimes the pieces fall into place...

Sunday, September 19, 2010

1. stayed on track yesterday
2. did a 10 minute workout last night
3. stayed on track all week
4. actually slept a full night last night
5. no alcohol all week

I am looking forward to today. I am challenging myself to stay on track and to workout. I am going to help my dad change the oil in the tractor and mow around the barn and my house. I also am looking forward to another afternoon of playing bridge with my mom and grandmother.

I'm finally getting back to my routine. I am looking forward to this week. I am challenging myself to running monday through friday, swimming monday and wednesday and biking or bike trainer tuesday and thursday. I can do this and I'm not going to beat myself up if I fall short of my goals. I'm reaching for the moon and if I fall short, I will still fall among the stars. :)


I'm going to make it...

through this weekend. I had a lot of hurdles to overcome, but I did it... and I stayed on track today.

I don't really know what else to say. I am happy and proud of myself.


Good all week!

Just have to make it through a rather stressful (emotionally) weekend and I will be giving myself a gold star. At least I will be surrounded by mostly good people and old friends... just can't let them tempt me into anything calorious (is that a word??).

Have a great weekend!


Wow, the last time I blogged...

I got laid off from my job that day. I think that was the worst day of my life... with filing for unemployment being the second worst.

1. I got married as planned! It was wonderful!
2. I had about 2 months off from working so I got a lot done around my house and got to spend some quality time with the new husband!
3. I was rehired to a great position at a forestry company (long drive and a pay cut, but great people to work with!)

I had to can half marathon training, but I am still running. I gained some weight while I was laid off, but the scale is now on the decline, as it should be. My new goal is to be 145 by the new year. I think I can do it sooner!

I need to stay focused, I need to stay disciplined. Now that I am back into a daily routine, I believe this will be much easier for me.


So much to do and so little time...

Wedding day is rapidly approaching with pictures tentatively being done Friday. I don't even have shoes yet!! I keep thinking how much more of a nightmare this would be if I had an actual wedding/reception to plan! Thank goodness for little things.

This past weekend was difficult. Saturday was very busy and Sunday was completely dead. I don't want to have another Saturday. The calls I took were sad and one was tragic. It broke my heart.

I'm starting half marathon training today! I did a run last week to see if I could still run 3 miles and ended up running almost 3 and a half. This week's training is 2 days of 3 miles, 2 days of 4 miles and 1 day of 5 miles. I am ready to do this. Even if I don't do the race in October, I want to prove to myself that I can run 13.1 miles. I know I can do this. I've run 7.5 before, but I really want to arrive at the half marathon level... regardless of my finish time.
