Still plugging along

Thursday, March 26, 2015

Hello Sparkland! I hope everyone is having a great day! It is a beautiful day in my neck of the woods, and I have the next 2 days off!

I am still having a tough time running... but I managed to get in 3 miles (walked 1/2 of it) the other day. I hope to do 4 miles, with 2.5 of that running, tomorrow, then if the hubs works Saturday morning I will try to get out again for 4ish miles. My 12k is coming up quick and I need to get back to my long runs after a couple of tough weeks!

I need to find a way to get my butt in gear in the mornings. Even 15 minutes could be a game changer. But, like today, I wound up 15 minutes late to work, not the reverse! I realize that my best shot at quicker weight loss will be HIIT workouts. But I'm having a hard time dedicating myself. I also need to make sure the dog gets out for more walks, but I have yet to do that.

3.5 weeks... I need to get on track so that I recover faster after surgery and can get back to life. I need to push, push, push until surgery... then I can have a few days of rest. No time to waste!

What kinds of tricks do you use to get yourself to wake up early or workout after a 11+ hr day at work??

    You can do this!

    I don't really have any tricks for you, except to sleep in your workout gear. It is really hard to wake up earlier when you don't absolutely have to...

    you may need to find balance. Yes you need to exercise but after working so long your body probably needs rest too! emoticon

    I meet a group of women at 6 every morning at the gym. That's a lot of motivation right there. I don't want to let them down. Evening are harder. But usually in the evening I'm just trying to hit my step goal, so I get the iPad, turn on Netflix and watch my favorite show while I walk or run.
