Back on track
Monday, January 10, 2011
It has been almost two months since I last blogged so I figured I should post an update. Lots of ups and downs since then. Huge stresses with my 20 year old daughter. I used to think that teenagers were stressful and then once they were out of that age, things would go smoothly. BOY was I WRONG! I won't go into details because I don't want to start bawling..
About my fitness....I was given the green light to start running in November but my achilles was still tender so I ran once a week for the month of December and finished my crunches goal (by the way I did do 100,000 crunches last year!!!!). I'm also proud of myself because I made it through my One Year Bible. I have never read it from beginning to end, so I felt very accomplished to have been able to do so.
This year has been a strong one so far. I have been able to run 8 out of 10 days and have already racked up 34 miles. I am running 5 miles every 4 day and the days in between averaging 2 to 5 miles. It feels great being out again and back on track. I was so miserable having to take all that time off and having gained more than 15 pounds!
We are supposed to go to Mexico on the 26th of February and I am hoping to lose at least 8 pounds by then.
I have committed to following a strict diet (no alcohol, sweets, pasta) until the trip and then after the trip I will slowly put them back in moderation. I am on day 10 of my workout and food regimen and so far so good.
I do have to thank my spark buddy Karen/KPACE who has been helping to keep me on track.
I hope everyone had a good new year!
