Last week of March

This week has gone way better than the last two.  Starting and stopping isn't a good way to start a running program.  But I think I found my groove.  I ran 3 days last week Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.  Plus I did my cross training on Tuesday and Thursday.  Took Friday off and hope to get a workout in today.  Some sort of cross training.  I got a new book Practical Paleo and I am super excited to get cooking :).  I did at least two miles each time I ran and am proud that I did it despite not being in "the mood".  I also ran for 10 mins straight yesterday.  My map my run app stopped calculating and it threw me off.  So DH took the stroller with the screaming 18 month old and just let me do my thing.  I just kind of went and forgot about time or walking or anything.  Today I feel great.  My shins don't hurt and I feel like I'm making progress.  It's a great feeling.  Being up to 166 isn't great but I will be ok.  So there is my update.  I am going to try to be better about posting.  Ugh I used to be great at it LOL.  No time lately to do anything it seems.

So I got my run in this morning but didn't eat before hand.  It really showed because I only did 1.75 miles in my 30 mins and usually I do 2.25-2.5 in that time outside.  So I for sure should eat before working out in the mornings.  Other than that it was great to get it out of the way early.

Off to a rough start

It's been a rough start to my new training program.  But I am determined to not let this stop me or deter me from my goal of getting healthy.  I will beat this depression and this weight.  I will not let my mood determine my course of action.  It's not what is how this will work.  Tomorrow I will go for a run with my family and I will make my health a bigger priority.  I won't move to Texas the same person I am now.  I am super excited about my virtual 5K training though.  Next week will go smoother.

Emotional roller coaster day

Soooo the XT day on my schedule isn't going to happen.  I'm just gonna throw that out there right now.  I have had one heck of a day and really just need to spend time on the couch with the hubby snuggling.  I'm XT my emotions LOL.  It's not really that funny but it is a little.  I will get my run in tomorrow.  I won't let this one bad day sideline what I am trying to do.  I might even try to do a treadmill workout tomorrow in the morning just to get it knocked out.  You don't have to be perfect everyday.  But you do have to keep moving forward.

Monday 3/4/13

Got my first run in yesterday for my10 week training plan. I am glad I did it. It was a great feeling once I was done. I can tell I'm out of shape for sure. My weight is up to 162.3 and all my other measurements are up around my waist and hips. I shouldn't be surprised I haven't worked out in months. I am back on track now though. I am going to do kettle bells today after work before I go get the kids. I'm tired of feeling tired.
Yesterday I did 2.11 miles in 30mins walking 4min and running 2mins running.

New challenge to get me moving

So I signed up for two things today.  One is the Mother Runner virtual 5K training.
And the other is a remembrance run for Fallen Coast Guardsmen.  The virtual 5k matches up perfectly with the 5k on the 18th.  So I hope that between the two I will get through this training plan once and for all, lose some weight, and be more healthy than I am now.  I will be starting Monday March 4th.  So that means this weekend I have to plan my workouts, plan my meals and go grocery shopping.  Gotta set myself up for success so I don't trip and fall.  I have been a little back and forth but I think I finally found something to get me on track.
