Yup I got this....

Saturday, August 17, 2013

So I am feeling better...still no answers completely yet on my health issues but taking advantage of feeling more like myself. I got great exercise in this week running, biking and walking and it all started to spark my goal thoughts again. Like wouldn't it be awesome if I could run a 5k in each state. Ok well that isn't going to happen anytime soon. But I did come up with maybe running a 10K next year and maybe climbing Mt. Washington in New Hampshire. That would be great! But for all this to happen my short term goal is to get a new treadmill so I can keep my running up during the winter (I know its a few months off but I plan now for my indoor exercising so I am ready). Yayyy all is right in my sparking world.


A bit stalled....

Thursday, August 01, 2013

My life revolves around my kids and this is fair week...we are completely immersed in the fair, we spend usually 8-12 hours per day there each day while fair is running about 1 week. So right now I am off my routine and really have found I am behind with exercise or at least the intensity of exercise I use to be able to maintain. I also have an undefined medical issue that is also getting in the way of my running lately and I find I mentally get down about this. The "flare" I get with my medical condition also brings fatigue that kicks my butt. It's discouraging and tough...but I know I can get back to my usual exercise level if I can just get control of this medical problem. Also I do believe there are a few foods that may come in to play with my slow down....chocolate, nuts and coffee. I know this sounds weird but if I can just kick these 3 things I am hoping it at least helps. I already have to avoid gluten, corn and soy. Well I plan to carry on and hope things can get better.

Picking by day...

Thursday, June 27, 2013

I am feeling a bit least I am walking regularly again. Today I will see if I can do a bit more in the afternoon. MD ordered some medical testing just to be sure of where things are at but I really feel that my allergy shots may be triggering my fatigue and GI sensitivity. Testing will tell. In the meantime...I will plan to eat well to support my health and get in any exercise I can. Here's to day by day....but back to 5k training is the goal.

A bit discouraged but planning to kick it to the curb...

Monday, June 24, 2013

Every time I start a real plan for my health it seems my health throws me a curve ball. No excuses here its actual my body has some issue and I get derailed with pain for a few days. I just have to remember that overall I get more days than not that I can kick but. So whenever I hear that negative talk coming into my brain...I have to really pay attention so I can throw a positive thought right at it.
