I can hardly believe it's been almost THREE months!!! I would like to be further along with my weight loss goal, I'm so near twenty five pounds, but it's just going soooo slow these days. I guess that's okay though. I'm still getting more and more fit, again, more slowly than I would like. I guess the best progress that I am making is in being kind to myself and not setting unrealistic goals.....or giving up when I can't achieve those unrealistic goals. I am finally beginning to learn to be content with doing the best I can and continuing to move forward.
I finally made myself get to bed and slept nine hours last night - only woke up once. Felt really good! I should try to do that more often. I'm a little disappointeed not finishing W6 yesterday, especially because I know that I will likely fall behind or at least stall in m fitness progress this week. I'm just trying to accept that and get some circuit and weight training done today, and if I can do more this week then great, and if not.....well, acceptance.
I am getting some extra stuff done to prepare for the next few days though...I know I will eat healthy, at least until Easter, and will do what fitness I can between work and other activities. I hope to be able to keep in touch with you, friends, but if it seems like I've disappeared, don't worry, I'll be back. Probably just working on that getting enough sleep thing. Wish me luck! Have a marvelous and BLESSED EASTER week to all of you!!!

This is going to be one of those short and sweet blogs. I worked all day from 7-4, and when I finished there, I got home, I fixed dinner, ate, got in a run W6D2 of C25K.
I was supposed to do D3 today, but I'm still not feeling at 100% from last Friday.
Take care of yourselves....

I'm not usually like this. Don't know what is the matter. I usually LOVE Sundays, LOVE church, I had it planned though and saved half of my sandwich (and half of the fat). That left me some calories to get in my protein and carbs this evening, basically non fat cottage cheese, baked potato, okra and fruit. I actually had to struggle to get it in and it left me way nearer the top of my calorie range than I like to be, but I know that I need the good nutrients to be healthy. I think its mostly all the heavy fatty food has left me feeling dragged down.
I also met up with some friends today that I haven't had much time with recently. Mostly they were very complimentary towards my wieght loss, but a little put off because I wouldn't eat brunch with them, when they and I all knew that I had this lunch planned with sis for a week now. Plus one of them, the running "buddy" who has yet to make a run with me, wants us to "get together soon" and she didn't seem happy that it would have to be after this week (unless of course she wants to meet me for a run), but I'm not holding my breath on that one.
I think I'm jjust needing a little extra quiet "me" time this evening. time to regroup, refocus. Get me head out of wanting to please other people or letting their actions control my moods.
All in all, " I " had a good day...not great, but successful and that's all that I can ask for....and tomorrow IS another day.

Whoa, I never, hardly ever get sick, and when I do it really ticks me off. I have a hard enough timekeeping up, but being nearly flat on my back for a whole day really throws me off. I guess there is a message in all this thouogh. I slept through the night only waking up briefly twice, AFTER sleeping away most of the day.
Waking up this morning I felt much better if not just a little worn out, not tired really, just drained. At least coffee and food are tasting good again. I also got in my W6D2 C25K. I almost thought of just skipping D2 and doing D3's 25 mins straight, but my getting smarter self said "no" follow the plan and don't overdo. The race is not until May 8th so I still have over a month to get ready with only 3 weeks and one day of training left. Next week will probably throw me one more day behind....but that still leaves me time.
Well got to work tonight and still want to do lunch, strength training and get something packed for dinner and get showered before work. Promised my sis we would do Red Robbin for dinner tomorrow, so I need the extra calorie burn today and tomorrow and the next day to make up for that.

I'm not sure what hit me...feels like a baseball bat to the gut. Was up a good portion of the night and so sick with a burning, churning stomach and chills, I couldn't even work, much less work out. I just laid on the couch or in bed for most of the day, tried to keep in fluids and eat whatever I could that was high in nutrients to get my strength back up
The up side? Had the chills so much of the day I was bothered very little by hot flashes...ok, that's the best I could come up with. Now, going back to bed and praying I feel better tomorrow....need to work and work out. Lost a whole day that I'll never get back and that ticks me off.
