I'm back at it again! I need to keep up the determination and consistency to see this thing through. I'm running 5Ks again, working with a trainer, and I just signed up to run a half marathon in October with Team in Training! No choice but to stick with it!

"To be nobody but yourself--in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else-- means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting."
-- ee cummings

“Time is limited, so I better wake up every morning fresh and know that I have just one chance to live this particular day right, and to string my days together into a life of action, and purpose.”
--Lance Armstrong
American cyclist; 7-time winner of the Tour de France

“And we will run to undo the damage we’ve done to body and spirit. We will run to find some part of ourselves yet undiscovered. Together, we will continue our odyssey of affirmation.”
-- John Bingham

My Goals:
Long term - to lose 80 pounds

To become a runner - at least a 5K each month, and to follow through with training for a half marathon in October

To fit into a pair of Zumba pants

To take a family picture and like the way I look in it!

My Program:
I completed the C25K program once before and ran several successful 5Ks and one 10K. I just finished the program again, this time with a running group. Love that accountability! I'm shaving the time off my 5Ks, running 3-4 times per week.

I'm doing all over body strenght training 2x a week with a personal trainer, as well as participating in a weekly bootcamp.

I also LOVE Zumba, bu haven't had much time for it lately. I go to Zumbathons when I can!

My nutrition plan is where I struggle. I'm just not consistent. No excuses, just need to get on track with that!

    Thanks for the comment on my blog! I am glad it helped you! I have been going through areally rough patch lately and I find it really helps just to take some time to count my blessings. Even if I include the little things like having carpet and paint on my walls ( there was a time this wasn't true) and after a while you really start to feel better. Try to focus on the positive because there will always be a choice to make and two sides to every coin. You CAN do this! and you CAN succeed! Find your road, honey and follow it. Take you time, Rome wasn't built in a day.
