Dare To Be Your Best!??
What in the world is stopping me?
Health and FitnessGirl
I have a plan and I set it into motion – I read, talk and research about health and fitness daily.
I need to plan my meals and snacks – I need to be more diligent about tracking. More food prep is needed – substitute unhealthy snacks for a better choice.
I felt fat this weekend – no, it was not just because I was hanging out with my beautiful 21 year old niece. I seriously looked down – as a sat in my two-piece - at a nice little beer gut that has been sneaking up on me. My clothes are tight – and I do not feel at my best – I look like a much bigger girl than I feel in the photos. I am disappointed in my lack of discipline and focus.
My HM Training is progressing – but at a cross roads – do I keep going – the main goal is to finish – however I felt that the weight would fall off in the process…so it has not been rewarding in “scale terms”. I need to run 7-8 miles this week. I am concerned.
I am six weeks away.
I need to add weights or a different type of fitness to get out of this rut – plateau buster!!
I have been running three times a week – about 9-12 miles a week. And bike riding 10-30 miles per week. Cardio Junky!! No weight loss.
I have had to fight off a few hang overs this weekend – well every weekend – the summertime on the boat seems to be all about the boatdrinks these days – well, always has been. I have trouble managing the calorie intake – and even though we are very active – swimming, climbing dunes, walking beach, dancing all night…I still consume too much. I have toyed with quitting for the next six weeks. Reaching the running goal…would be easier… Drinking is just so much fun…huge sacrifice…despite knowing how bad it is for me.
So there it is...now to turn things around.
