Like a computer I am getting a reboot. I need to get all the crap in my life cleaned up and then restart. Today is the restart.
Doing a diet reboot, doing shakeology cleanse in an effort to get myself back on to my good eating habits (while they haven't been horrible there is much room for improvement)
Doing an exercise reboot going to look at my workout schedule, revamp ad get moving!
Doing an emotional reboot, working on making life less stressful and dropping stressful things from my life! Also getting back to looking in the mirror in a positive manner.
Its all about getting the focus back and taking control of the things I can control, while I can't stop stress and bad weather I can change my attitude and the way I deal with all of it.

No half on May 8th it seems

Thursday, April 29, 2010

Looks like I will not be able to get into that race since they don't do transfers of numbers after April 7th still trying to figure out a way to do it but it is looking like a no go! Oh well still going to be there to cheer on my sister. Need more water today been drinking it much too slowly. This super windy day has me ticked off too wanted to do a 9 mile run today but I am not going to do so in 40mph winds that is insane so I am going to go for a short 2 mile run trying to wait the wind out a little bit but I gotta run before midnight. Grr mother nature is getting on my nerves! Just want the weather we were having back that wasn't super windy and was warm and pleasant

Fit Day and New Spark Team Turtles Unite

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

After work this morning did Insanity Plyo Cardio Circuit. Slept, woke up hydrated and had a small breakfast (1pm) and then set out for a 4.25mile jog decent pace enjoyed the day took it nice and easy for my recovery from my 5K. And for all you turtles and turtle loving fans Turtles Unite a new spark team for us slow runners who know slow and steady wins the race because slow and steady finishes the race and that is a win in my book, also while optional turtle tattoos are in the works!

    Go you. You are doing it. The team sounds fun, but I am more a walker - even if a fast walker than a runner, but I commend you for doing this! Go you. Have a great week!

Nutritional Pain in the...

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

As with all the workout programs I have been doing I am running into the same issue that I have run into before finding the balance between eating the right amount of calories to lose weight and the right amount to still maintain performance. Grr...Why can't this be simple like gaining weight is for me(I know we would all be the perfect size if it were). So I am back to the drawing board with this crap again because the amount I need to run vs. the amount I needed in p90x and insanity don't coincide because I wanna eat more and more after a run...I will get it figured out but for now working on it, working on it and in the meantime I am sitting at a major pain of a plateau!!

    I so hear you. I'm eating more training for my Half Marathon than I did when I was P90Xing it up. I hear over and over that people gain weight when training for distance events, which makes me feel a * bit * better, but it's still frustrating! My "I'm full now, so stop eating" signal seems to go away after a long run; sigh!

Are you still thinking of starting a Turtles Unite running group? Let me know so I can join! ;D

    What I did was, I took 3 days and wrote down everything I ate. I didn't add up calories, or anything. At the end of the three days, I figured up all of the calories and added them up. Amazingly, they were very close to each other. I took the smallest amount, and subtracted 500 per day. For the week, that's 3500 calories which make a pound.
Figure, you work out, and sometimes it's not easy figuring out how many calories you burn while working out, you can probably count on at least 250 calories or more. Thats at least another half pound per week which is the healthiest way to lose.
Losing around 2 pounds a week doesn't seem like much at all. And some folks get frustrated and quit trying when that's all they lose. But, if someone lost 2 pounds a week for a year...2 pounds x 52 weeks = 104 pounds. Is that impressive or not?

5k complete and I love racing

Sunday, April 25, 2010

I loved it I loved the experience of running in an organized race I know for sure I will stick with 5ks it was a lot of fun. I ran 37:36 which is a 12:06 pace I am really happy with my performance I went just for fun although that little bit of competitive nature kicked in and I wanted to do really well. Took 2 short walk breaks one was just because my hip had cramped up a little bit and I needed to stretch it some so it was like a 20 second walk break. Do I think I could have run faster yes I do but I was not doing this in the interest of hurting myself and losing interest in my marathon etc. I loved the finish line everyone cheering even if you have nothing left you get a little burst of something.
After I finished my race I walked back to cheer my brother in law the rest of the way in he was a little behind me and was very happy with his time 42:47 I think, also his first race and he had been injured, he has also been on a weight loss journey! Then I jogged back to find my sister who was doing the 10k I ran in the rest of the way with her (she was back of the pack) she improved her mile per pace by 10 seconds and was pleased with her finish time. It made it a lot of fun that it was us running together and enjoying some family fitness, seeing all of us getting healthy makes me very happy! My niece competed in a 50yd dash which she got a little upset (crowds) but was pleased with her little prize for finishing. A great weekend was had by all.

    Congratulations on the 5k. My wife and I ran one on the 25th. I was very proud of her for getting it in 31 minutes. I finished a bit faster, but I am contributing that to doing the Insanity program for the last 6 1/2 weeks. We are going to do another in October, and I am already looking forward to it. Keep up the good work.

    Way to go! ... I remember my first ever 5K ... and yes, it is definitely addicting :)

As a friend of mine said when I first started running: "Unlike every other sport other than cycling - there's always further." ... and, he was right ... LOL
