I need a break from life. lol, ok so that's a little dramatic. But work is just crazy right now and I'm feeling so drained. I just want to relax and read my books. I'm an introvert by nature and I need some major recharge time.
Also, recently I have stopped tracking most of my daily goals. As some of you know, I have a LOT of goals, but what you may not know is that part of me finds my worth in meeting those goals. In other words, if I don't meet a goal, I feel like a total failure. And that's no way to live.
I guess what I'm saying is that I'd rather relax, do things I like, stop neglecting my hobbies, spend time with my friends and family who make me smile, and exercise for fun, not because I'm trying to meet a goal.
So, for the time being, no more goal tracking. That doesn't mean I'm going to stop exercising and just let myself fall to the wayside. It just means that I'd rather look back on life and say, "Wow, I spent a lot of time doing things I enjoy with people I love" rather than "I wanted to run 365 miles that one year when I was younger, and I only ran 200, so I'm a total failure at every aspect of my life."
Anyway, long winded, but for now I need a break from Sparkpeople. And facebook and email, etc. So goodbye for a little while, but don't worry, I'll be back soon once I get my head straight.

Ok, so honestly my challenge kind of fizzled. I didn't meet any of my goals except for flights of stairs on these 2 days. Sundays and Mondays are always the hardest for me, as I don't always exercise on those days.
But yesterday was a good day! I went to the Y at 8 pm after dinner instead of sitting on the couch all evening. Jordan had already worked out earlier that day, so I went by myself even though I didn't want to. When I got home, we went for a walk around the block because the beautiful cool evening was too good to pass up!
Today is my day off, so hopefully I'll get caught up on some of my Sparking!
Have a great day, friends!

I met all of my goals yesterday, including 47 VAMs, to help make up for those days with little or no VAM.
I had a fun day, with a race in the morning, time to relax and get things done at home in the afternoon, and then RibFest and the new Star Trek movie with the family in the evening.
I slept really well last night. I guess it was supposed to storm, but honestly I didn't notice if we got any kind of bad weather. I was zonked!
Have a good rest of the weekend!

I ran a 5K with my sister this morning. She lives in LA and I don't get to see her often, so it was nice to run together. I was trying to break 30 minutes for my 5K, and at this same race last year, I set a PR of 30:12.
Unfortunately, it was very humid today, and my asthma is worst in humidity. I wasn't able to break 30. My time was 31:43 by my watch. Not my fastest 5K, but not my slowest either. Oh well, there's still plenty of 5Ks left this year in which I can break 30 minutes!!

Yesterday, I met all of my goals except for VAM again! Grrr! I NEED to figure out how to get those minutes on non-running days!!!
I have a 5K race today, that I'm running with my sister! This will be the first race we've ever done together! I'm hoping to break 30 minutes, so wish me well! I'll update later.
Have a great weekend!
