Resolutions / Priorities 2009:
Keep my Priorities in Line. Look frequently at my balance wheel and work a little harder on the area that is out of balance.
#1 God / Spirituality
#2 Family... kids, husband,
#3 Self... Positive time. I LOVE me...
#4 Physical Activity and Goals
#5 Nutrition / Food Balance
#6 Career / School
#7 Extended Family and Friends
#8 Money / Budget / Spending
#9 Personal Growth / Learning
#10 Physical Environment... Clean house
#11 Additional Service to Others
#12 Fun / Recreation / Entertainment
*** As I reflect, I'm always shocked by how important spirituality is to me and how quickly I dump it when times are tough. I hope this year to keep my priorities straight. When things feel out of balance... Check priority #1 and then work my way down the list and strive to keep things in balance.
Happy New Year Everyone!!!

I am claiming my first overall female victory today! Sooooo HAPPY! I actually tapered a little after my half marathon run last weekend. I didn't work out much this week. Just a few light workouts, and I felt GREAT today!
The only thing that sucked was... I forgot my watch, so I don't know exactly what my splits were. I am pretty sure that I ran my fastest ever! The run was not a full 5K, just 2.75 miles, but I am sure that I ran it between 17-18 minutes? I still can't exactly figure out the math, but I am thinking 7 minute miles? I wonder if the milage was right too. UGH!
Anyway... I have an odometer on my bike, and I did the bike in about 38 minutes / 11 miles and the swim was only a 250, but I just felt GREAT! My time was a 1:01:40. I felt like I did push it on this one (LoL)
I am almost embarassed to say, but I just ran 5.5 more miles this evening, because I was bored and felt like running. My Utah Utes are winning over BYU too. LIFE IS GOOD! Oh! So GOOOOOOOOOD!
PS Saw the Twilight movie yesterday with the kids too. Thought it was ok, but my daughter LOVED it so it was worth it. It just seemed weird like it was a LOW budget film or something. K... Have a great night all!

This AM I did a treadmill half marathon. 13.1 miles on the treadmill. LOL!!! I am so thankful for the fan on my treadmill. It really works! Every once in awhile when I go to the gym and jog on their treamills without a fan, I totally appreciate mine more.
My time: 1:52:30.
Very PROUD! I maintained about 7 miles per hour.
My eating is STILL out of control, but one thing at a time. I thank God that I am able to exercise, and that I feel physically pretty healthy.
Plans for today: My son's piano recital, a purse party, and my daughter's indoor soccer. FUN STUFF after a long week of parent conferences!!!
