So the Mud Run is still going to happen, but I'm not going to freak out at how soon it will be here.
My focus is on getting fit (without further injury.. explanation to come) and eating more healthily.
For the past 7 days I have not exercised at all. I pulled my left hamstring last Wednesday and was starting to get back to normal when I re-injured it in the same way on Sunday. (Not going to describe the details. It had nothing to do with fitness.. it was really dumb. A friend said to just say I did it skateboarding. LOL)
Life has been SOO busy. I'm working 2.5 jobs. (Yes, 2.5... none are full-time...) I end up working about 35 hours a week, so really it's not quite full-time at all, but I am going to school (1 class) and my schedule is crazy.
I had the day off today and did less than I planned on. Oops.
So, my fitness plan is to be injury free for Wednesday so I can workout again at Jazzercise. I had committed to working out 3x a week there in the mornings, but with the injury it hasn't worked out so well. I also plan on doing an endurance workout on the weekends (Saturdays) so I can be ready for the approx. 6.5 miles I'll need to complete for the Mud Run.
Food-wise, it's getting a bit easier to eat less since I really don't have time to eat all the time. Evenings are still a challenge because I am home and there's always food here.
I have decided that I will lose 52 lbs by my next birthday. (Sept 5, 2010). This weekend I had some food treats that I normally wouldn't have had and it showed on the scale. I weighed in at 219. Holy moly that is almost OBESE for my height. Yikes. Time to turn this thing around!
So that's my update. :)
