I'm back!

Thursday, March 29, 2012

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.

    Good for you! I have hit my plateau and need to get working out but I live in rainy Portland and it makes me lazy. I have to be a better Sparker, the calorie counting really helps, der :)

I'll be watching!

    Congrats on your upcoming RN pinning and good luck on meeting your goals, but decide from now that you will thoroughly enjoy yourself no matter what shape you are in by the time you get to Disney. You have been through a lot and you deserve to give yourself a treat.

    I am planning to run the Detroit FP half this fall as well! It is my first time running it. I am planning to run the CRIM in Flint as my trial prior to the Free Press half. Good luck! Way to be determined!
