After completing the Tough Mudder on December 3rd and my first half maraton on January 8th (trail run....tougher than the tough mudder!) I can't seem to pull myself together. I have gained pretty much all my weight back but worse than that I feel horrible. I have had some things going on in my life but in reality nothing that should be holding me back from doing what I need to do. My nutrition has been horrid and my exercise as bad! I'm tired all the time, I'm going to bed late, I'm not planning my meals and probably the worst of all is I'm just not exercising. Unfortunately for me I am more motivated to work out if I have someone to workout with, one of my kids is at practice, or a class that I love. Last year at this time I had all three. Unfortunately instead of dropping my daughter off at practice and running I'm coaching, the class that I loved was cancelled and my workout partners are all on different schedules. So, with that being said I know that I have to motivate myself and "Just Do It!" The thing is I know how I feel now, and I know how I feel when I'm eating healthy and excersicing. Grrrr! Along with that the way I'm feeling is really pouring into the rest of my life. My house is a disaster that I can't seem to get under control, I'm cranky and my kids get the brunt of it, my dog hasn't been walked, laundry and bills are piling up, have gone from having 4-5 sit down meals with my family to a week to maybe 1 or 2.
I've given up even making excuses anymore, just not doing what I need to! Time to stop right now and get back on track!!
Goals for next week:
1) plan meals, make grocery list
2) Run 3 miles at least one time next week
3) Bike 2-3 times
4) drink 6-8 bottles of water
5) head to the beach at least once for mental health! :)
I put it out there....time for me to follow through!
