First 10K trail run

Monday, November 26, 2012

I have my first 10K trail run coming up this Saturday. I'm nervous about it. It's been awhile since I've run or done an obstacle race. Plus I've never run 6 miles straight through before, nor have I ever done trail running before. And it doesn't help that the people I'm running it with all run at least 5 miles regularly and some have even done half marathons.
I'm not really sure why I signed up for it, lol emoticon I think I was thinking it would just be a nice day outdoors, a day to enjoy the crisp winter air on the trails, regardless if I can run it all or not. So I'm trying to maintain that mindset, to stay focused on myself and whatever it is I'm able to accomplish, not compare myself to others. It's tough sometimes. Though I did run 30 minutes straight today! Definitely proud of that. So bring it trails! emoticon

The Twix Bars are Calling

Monday, November 19, 2012

I'm waiting for my dinner to finish cooking, and as I wait the leftover Halloween candy is beckoning me. I must resist! I will win this battle of the craving :) I've heard a cup of tea, green tea, is helpful in these times. Going to give that a try

A time to blog

Monday, November 19, 2012

I've never kept a blog before. I've always been hesitant about it. I never know what to write or say, but writing things down does seem to help. I know keeping a notebook of my workouts and my meals has certainly helped keep me on plan in the past. So maybe keeping a blog will help keep my motivation on track and maybe even help change my mindset. I've ended up in a very negative mindset lately and I want to get back to the happier, healthier me that I know I am. I've made some great progress the last month, but I feel the drive slipping (especially with the holidays coming). So time to use the tools available to me. So here it is, my first blog. My new beginning.
