Weekend and Starting Over
Monday, December 10, 2012
Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you had a great weekend!
Here is my weekend recap:
Friday, go out with the hubs... stay out too late, drink too much. But at least I got some dancing in!!
Saturday, go to DMV, get nails done, meet hubs for lunch, hit the mall for some quick shopping, to my mom's to pick up some things she had for us, to dinner, then finally home.
Sunday, Jingle Bell 5k!!!!! We (hubs and I) We left about 6am, missed the tram we needed by about 30 seconds and had to wait 15 minutes for the next one. FINALLY made it to downtown Seattle and met up with KIMCOLLINS! My first real life SparkFriend meeting! We ran the race, (31:30 by our watches) and met up again with Kim and Mr. W for some breakfast. After that we said our goodbyes to our new friends and spent several hours shopping in Seattle. We made the trip in, we might as well! Finally got home around 4:30 and we were POOOOOOPED!!!! A little cleaning so we could remain sane, then shower and couch time. We got to bed at a decent time too.
I am hurting today!!! I knew I would be since I've been a lazy @$$ the last several weeks. And this is certainly something I have been talking about and taking ZERO action. I'm all talk these days. So far I have managed 5 squats in the bathroom today! That's more than I have done in weeks (other than the race). It is a combination of things that I use as excuses to avoid the gym. First, I've gotten lazy with packing my gym back and sandwich at night. Sometimes I'll pack my gym bag, but then I wake up "too tired" so I unpack it and get ready. What I should really be doing is packing that bag and putting it into my car the night before.
Anyway - Scott agreed this morning to run the Hot Chocolate 5k with me!!! HOLY CRAP! I didn't think that was going to happen!!! So, this means I need to come up with some kind of training schedule. I think I will plan for the first 6 months of 2013. I will plan my races and my necessary training for them. I would like to do a half marathon sometime in June, or roughly 1/2 way through the year. If I want to do this I need to plan. I need to find a training schedule, I need to set up incentives. I need to do something.
I did so great this year and now I am having such a hard time doing anything other than work and sleep! I am VERY VERY VERY thankful I have not gained any weight during this time, but I know that I am probably starting to lose some muscle mass. Truth be told, I am just fine with my body right now. I am so close to being where I want to be that I am fine with taking some down time. My fear is that I won't be able to get back into things. PLUS, consistancy is key and I know this. So, while I'm not going to beat myself up for not working out consistantly like I was, I am going to work on a plan and hopefully find the fire to get me to the gym again before the New Year.
Does anybody use any training schedule or have something you like to use you can recommend?? I guess I just kind of need a workout planner.
Have a great week all of my SparkFriends!!
