October Goals and a update

Tuesday, October 09, 2012

So I know this is a week late... but here are my October goals:

1. Stay within calorie range of 1500- 2000 calories ( depending on how much I workout for that day.... I sometimes run 20 miles!)
2. Drink 12 glasses of water a day
3. Eat no or close to none processed foods
4. Workout 5 to 6 days a week, and do so in the morning.... so that it is more likely that I get it in!
5. Go to bed but 10pm so that I can get up early to workout!
6. I am going to allow myself one glass of wine a week :)

Hopefully these goals will help me get of the 160's by the end of October! I have been stuck in the 160's for months now.... I have about 10-15 pounds to go til I get to my pre-pregnancy weight and there are no more excuses now since my "baby" is not a baby any more! He's a toddler!

He is 14 months today! I can't believe how fast it has gone by! He is almost walking by himself. He loves to go jogging with me in the jogging stroller... he starts screaming with delight when I go fast... as if to say " faster, faster, mommy!"

I am running two marathons... Duke City Marathon on October 21 and New York City Inc on November 3. NYC Inc will make 8 marathons I have done and 3 after baby! I ran the Rock'n Roll Country Marathon in Nashville in April ( 4:27 time). I had wanted to get closer to 4 hours but it was hotter than usual temperatures there when I ran it so I decided to take it easy and not get heat stroke while running it. I am hoping to run close to a 4 hour for these up coming marathons... it would be great to get below a 4 hour... but we will see.

I ran the Chips and Salsa 1/2 marathon on Sept 16 of this year and got a 1:58 time! I was really happy to get under 2 hours on a half again! Hopefully if I can lose the rest of this baby weight I can get the times I want!

    The marathons you run have the best titles.

    So great to see you back here on SP, and to see the updated pix of little Sammy, too! It's amazing to me that you run 20 miles some days! You are definitely an INSPIRATION!

    emoticon I've been in the 160's forever and I'm hoping to be out of it by the end of the month also. I really think #3 will get you there. Remember more veggies then fruit. Ratios should be 4:1. So for every fruit you should eat 4 veggies. Hey, I'm still working on this.

    You little one is sooo adorable. I can't believe mine will be 16 months on the 13th.

    Oh he is so adorable! Great job on the runs you've done since he's been born. It's so hard to believe that he's that old already. Time really does fly!
