Back to School and Back to Spark
Monday, September 03, 2012
I've been absent from Spark for a while. Months, actually. It's been a fun and busy summer. Camping and more camping. Running around with my kids and basically just taking it easy. It's been lovely.
Now that my kiddos are going to school, I feel like I need to get myself back to school, in a way. So I'm back here at Spark. I'm reestablishing routines in my life, my home, and in my family, and one of them is using SP as a tool to help me balance a healthy lifestyle.
I've been trying to get pregnant for over a year now. I had a miscarriage a few months ago. I found out I was pregnant again just a couple of days ago, but I'm starting to have some pink spotting. It's a strong possibility that I'll miscarry again. I'll just have to wait and see.
Right before I found out I was pregnant I had just recommitted to getting off those last 10 lbs from my last pregnancy THREE YEARS AGO. Have three years really gone by and I'm still at this weight? My body likes it here, in the mid 140s, that's for sure. I need to shake things up and shock my system to break this plateau and COMMIT to being active.
Then I found out about the pregnancy. And I'm HOPING I won't miscarry. Which means my focus for September is not going to be on weight-loss after all. Instead, I'm going to focus on finishing my 5k training and eat better. And eat more. I rarely get enough calories, and when I do it's because I ate a bunch of sugary crap.
1. Run 4 days a week
2. Drink a green smoothie daily
3. Drink 8 oz H2O daily
4. Demolish my existing floors
5. Lay new hardwood floors
Here's to a great month!
