Let's face it - we were all worried that after the race, we'd lose steam. And it's happened to many of us. Myself included. This week has been rough so far.
I've had one good workout - the rest have been snowy mornings or early mornings or whatever. Food intake has been good though. Although we're going out to two nice dinners in the next five days.
But committed I am, and have been, and will be.
There are going to be bumps along the way folks. This is (for some of us) an entirely new WAY OF LIFE. And battling 28 years of previous habits is a constant struggle. But the more we integrate it into our everyday, the better we'll do overall.
So when was I at MY best? When, like Chris, I started going OUTSIDE. Getting off the treadmill, and breathing cool fresh air.
So that's my goal for this Saturday - a loop around Lake Serene. It's only 2.8 miles, but it's further than I've been walking/jogging since the race. It's a good push.
But the important thing is that I only have 19 weeks until the RnR Half here on June 27th. And if I can lose just 2 pounds a week from now until then, that'll put me about 20 pounds BELOW my lowest weight. And I'll be feeling GREAT for this run.
1. Outside run this weekend.
2. Loss of 40 pounds before the RnR Half Marathon on June 27th.
3. Focusing on consistent food intake (three problem areas - 2/14 - Valentines Dinner - 2/17 - Dinner before the symphony - 3/5-8 - Weekend in Vegas for our anniversary). Understanding my struggles, and combatting them the whole time.
Let's all set some goals for ourselves. Short term ones. If we have something to reach for, we tend to stretch for it harder.
MAIN STREET AWAITS!
