Oh my gosh...this has been a whirlwind month. I got really sick, had to have some spinal procedures, got sick AGAIN and work, school and family committments. I totally fell off the wagon. Thankfully I only gained back 1 pound. I started running again last week, getting in a few 4 mile runs with the dog. My body really hated me for it, which shows that I have been out of the fitness routine for too long. I'm so far from the half-marathon shape that I was in last October.
The good news is that I'm back! Back on SP and also got the mobile app for my phone. I need to get back to counting my calories, since I have been eating anything and everything that I want lately and not packing my lunches/dinners, like I should be.
I'm very inspired to get back on track. I will be pinned as an RN next month on the 27th and want to wear a nice dress without feeling fat. 4 weeks is a good amount of time to lose a bit of weight and tone up. I'm going to Florida for a graduation trip to Disney World on June 16th and don't want to feel fat in my bathingsuit. It would also be nice to be able to fit into more than 1 pair of my shorts!!! That gives me almost 10 weeks to get it back together, which I feel is totally doable if I commit myself.
Right now my weight is 147lbs and I would like to see my self back down around 130lbs. I also need to get this body toned back up.
I signed up for a few races also. A 5k that's coming up in a few weeks, the Free Press half marathon in Detroit this fall, and I want to squeeze in some 5k and 10k races along the way. I am officially done with RN program in 4 WEEKS also!
I am going to be in my best shape EVER...just watch and see.
