rockin' runnin'

Wednesday, April 23, 2008

so, last week i began running regularly again. after more than a month of fitting in jogs whenever and wherever i could, and losing my motivation altogether, i've set a new goal. i will be training for the rock 'n' roll 1/2 marathon in virginia beach on labor day weekend. cheer me on, this is going to be loads of fun!! i'm stoked because this combines my two loves, good music and beach running. who thought of this? i want to hug them....

i would be sooo happy to get motivating comments throughout this time. i'll need it!

    That's so cool! A half marathon is somewhere in my future too though I haven't set a goal yet. I'm going to start with a 5k, lol. :) Thanks for joining the Shaklee team - there's gotta be others on SparkPeople... where are they??? :)

    I also think you can do it. Welcome to the road runners. We sometimes don't set the best example for healthy eating but we sure can help you keep motivated to run. I hope to see you on our boards. gail

what is wrong with me??

Tuesday, January 29, 2008

so, yesterday i felt sooo great. woke up early, exercised, ate well all day, blah blah....
i was motivated for this big goal of mine....then today came. i had plans to go to an awesome latin dance class at the gym with diana (woo hoo) but my daughter not only didn't nap but came down with a fever and has been miserable all afternoon....
from the start of her misery, i began to (yes, wait for it...) EAT!!! i literally grabbed a bag of chocolate chips because i don't keep sweets in the house anymore....and yep, i just ate 'em!! ok, not all of them, but y'know....anyway, it spiraled me into sitting on the couch with her, cuddling, trying to get her to sleep....then a movie sounded like a perfect idea for her mood...so popcorn it was....
and i didn't get to do ANY physical activity today! NONE!!
these are the days, the ones that make me want to toss in the towel (what does that mean anyway?).....
so, in summary....it hasn't been a good day. and its only 3:45pm. boo.

    Nothing is wrong with you Sandy. :) But we ARE going to Zumba tomorrow! You're going to love it, just don't laugh at me shaking my booty :) Have you started tracking your food yet? I'm sortof doing that, but when I can't find exactly the food I'm eating (it was Mexican rice today) then I don't even add it, ha! In the past when I've tracked calories, I've avoided eating stuff just because I didn't want to have to log it, haha.

    Don't get discouraged!! Here is a poem that reminds us that every moment, every day, any time we decide, is a moment to start over:

Author Unknown

If you've started out in pursuit of your goal and you've really tried with your heart and soul
But somehow things got out of control

When you've tried your best to do what you should and you thought this time that surely you would
But once again,you didn't do good--

Whe you've worked so hard to follow TOPS way and you fought to win a victory each day
But one more time you went astray

When you've tried so hard to yourself be true and do the things you know you should do
But once again you failed to come through

When the road to success seemed much too long and each temptation was oh so strong
And once again you gave in to wrong

When you've told your friends what you'd planned to do and trusted them to help you through
But soon discovered it's up to you

When you know you must be physically fit
But your hope seems gone and you're stuck in a pit
That's not the time for you to quit

When the week seems long and successes few and at weigh-in time you're feeling blue
Remember tomorrow is just for you

To start again means a victory's been won
And starting over again means a race well-run
And starting over again proves it can be done
So don't just sit there
