MoTiVaTeD: Epic 2014

Thursday, January 09, 2014

WI this morning resulted in a 3 lb loss.
This 1st week back on plan was really interesting. I decided it was time to get back in the groove of things so I was going to track no matter what. I started off Thursday and Friday being OP and staying within my daily number. The weekend was kind of tricky but I kept in mind that if I ate or drank it I had to track it therefore it had me wondering if it was really worth it. A few things that I implemented this week to help me stay on track.....all training runs completed plus 2 days of strength training and making sure I met my daily intake of H2O (half my body weight in ounces).

I completed my 1st HALF (virtual race) this past Saturday in 2:50.42. My next official race will be Mar 2, 2014 and want to PR......



I'm switching up on my numbers for the entire month...changing my daily to 29 and my weekly to 25 and I'm going to use activity points first instead of my weekly. Let me see how I can work week 2.

Day by Day, Pound by Pound!

MoTiVaTeD: Epic 2014

Friday, January 03, 2014

Well it's been a while since I post in my blog because my mindset was right with being on plan but my heart just wasn't in it. I felt that I needed to take a break from it all and doing that I allowed myself to gain 20 lbs. I started thinking at the beginning of the week of how unhappy I was with myself and that I needed to regroup and get back on board with my lifestyle change because it not only effects me but also the ones closest to me (my hubby and son).

WI yesterday was a .6 lb loss.

Today I decided that I'm going to focus on each day as it comes and each meal as it comes too. Sometimes things can get overwhelming and then I don't know how to deal with it. I figured started back this will give me a chance to correct as the day goes along.

Saturday's long distance training runs have been going good. The cold weather needs to go away but I can deal with it as long as there is no rain. My longest distance that I've ran to date is 10.50 in 2:16. I'm looking to increase my mileage but because of health issues I don't focus on time only finishing it. 8 more long distance runs before the LR Marathon Half which is going to be EPIC!



One thing that I've learned while sitting on the sideline is that blogging helps. I love being able to go back to the beginning of my journey and read how far I have came an where this lifestyle is going to take me.

WI was a .6 lb loss.....I loss what I gained last week.

Last week I made sure to get me some warm running gear and gloves and this past weekend was WARM. I didn't get a chance to try them out but I was able to try out my jacket this morning while waiting on the other ladies for come in from our 3 mile run. I'm so loving my jacket which is similar to a turtle neck and I'm going to get me another one.

A friend and have have been running together training for the LR Marathon. We signed up for a virtual race and we are going to do a trial 13.1 mile run on Jan 4, 2014 just 7 weeks before our actually race. This virtual race has a cute medal and I think it will be worth it.

I gained .6 lb at WI. It's just a tiny hiccup for me.

This week started our training in the COLD weather. The cold will have you thinking 2, 3 or 4 times about going out. My Saturday run wasn't too bad but we did catch a little rain here and there. Monday wasn't bad at all. Now Wednesday evening and Thursday morning I can't tell you which day was worst but this morning I felt like I was still thawing out from last night. I need to get me some winter gear because I don't plan on changing my outdoor runs too much unless it is too dangerous to go out. I found an article that talks about how to dress for cold weather running and I need to read it and take some notes. Last year when the cold weather came I moved my workouts to the gym. I'm planning to run my first half marathon in March (still cold) I want to train as if its race day.



This week I'm going to focus on my eating since this is my problem area.

Normally I wake up early to get in a few miles on Thursday's before weighing in but today I decided to take some vacation time. I slept in and got my miles in after I dropped my son off at school. I'm glad I did because it was CHILLY. WI went well with me losing 2.4 lbs this week. I managed to get in 3 runs and 1 walk this week.

I finally made up my mind and set some new goals and also refreshed some of my old goals that I haven't met yet. I want to hold my self accountable on what I'm wanting out of my weight loss journey.

Current Goals:
I will complete a half marathon by March 2, 2014
I will lose 20 lbs by my next birthday 2/13/2014

My current actions to complete my goals:
I will commit to 2-35 min runs and 1-long run per week to help train for the half marathon.
I will commit to 2 days of strength training (my week runs Thursday - Wednesday)
I'm going to focus on the current day to help me stay OP with my weight loss (1 lb a week is what I hope for.



My motivators:
I want to be a role model for my husband, son and friends who are overweight and think it can't be done.
I want to return to my goal weight of 165 lbs - July 19, 2012.
I want to be and stay healthy.
