As I continue to set and accomplish my goals...the next set of goals is to finally run a half and full marathon by the end of 2012. I finally spent some time setting up a training schedule to get me to my goal. I have been running on and off for years now...I've done a lot of 5 and 10K races but I'm ready to push myself further. My full marathon is scheduled for October 28 and I will be running a bunch of 5Ks, 10Ks, and 2 half-marathons before then. I'm excited for this next set of challenges =)

Mission TBT is on for the next 5.5 months until my bday (May 14). The goal is to be in better shape than I was on my bday last year =) The plan right now is to continue working out 6 days a week and eating clean (80-90%). I will follow the workouts from Jamie Eason's LiveFitTrainer and use my regular eating plan. I will do a building phase for the first 2.5 months (eating a little more protein and keeping my reps lower and weights heavy as possible with good form) then do a 3 month leaning out phase (keeping reps higher, lowering weights and increasing cardio).

It is important for me to have goals to work towards because otherwise I feel like I have no direction =)

I'm also planning to change my gym membership to an Anytime Fitness as soon as I run through these personal training sessions my hubby left me with...ugh!! Don't ask because I'm actually highly annoyed I have to use them because part of the reason I'm switching gyms is because the trainers at my gym now SUCK!!

So my next huge goal is to compete in the SNBF figure competition on July 16. This is my first, but will definitely not be my last. Honestly, I waver between complete and utter excitement and being absolutely scared out of my mind, lol. Luckily I have an AMAZING support system 1) DJ (husband) who now workouts with me, yeah! 2) FLEXCHEF (Ruben) - awesome trainer/nutritionist who knows his stuff BIG TIME 3) GI Jane (aka Bootcamp Jen) whose workouts are INTENSE!!
