Day 1 of Running...

Was absolutely
My dislike of running has definitely come back.
I only ran 1.7 miles
(Goal was 2.5)
And I nearly died.
Oh well I am not gonna let it defeat me.
I am going to keep plugging
and I mean plugging
because that's how fast I run:)
Just keep plugging along!!!
Tomorrow will be day #2 I will run 2 miles even if it kills me!
I did Les Mills Pump today
and because of the run up this big hill behind my house
All the squats and lunges
Holy moley!!!!
Hopefully my legs will start looking good soon!
I also found out yesterday my husband has the goal to run
The Ogden Marathon next year.
Do you think I can do it?
I really cannot even fathom running 26.2 miles...
I might go for the half...
I dunno
My Husband agreed that might be the best because I
"wont slow him down that way"
Haha sounds typical of my husband..
I guess we'll just see how this 10K goes.

I am so happy to be back being active again!
It makes me so much happier and loving life more!
What did you do today?

I am back!!
Sorry I have been MIA for the past few weeks.
We bought a home in Ogden and have moved!
I can't believe it actually happened.
So with all the stress and craziness of moving I had to kinda put some things aside...such as blogging.
I did pretty well however on keeping up with my exercising...
the week of moving!
I was so busy packing that I put exercising aside
I didn't eat too terribly well either!
(Side note: Did you know that with moving; packing boxes and lifting them everywhere you burn THOUSANDS of calories?!? No wonder you are always starving when that stuff is happening)
With that being said no wonder I didn't gain too much!
I kinda balanced myself out...
Problem was after we were in and settled I had THE hardest time finding
to workout.
I found myself falling into old habits of munching until I felt sick.
Good thing we don't have any ice cream in the house.
All I had to munch on were my son's treats: Crackers, fruit snacks etc.
Not the worst type of treats but definitely not helping towards my weight loss.
During last week I felt so lethargic and chunky!!
I knew I had to get back into the groove of things but I didn't feel like I had the energy to do that.
Because of the lack of energy I found myself thinking that I'll never reach my goals.
These 10 lbs are going to be soooo hard to lose.
because I just keep hovering around 143-146...
I am on what we call a plateau.
So whats my plan of attack?
I'll tell you
Last year I ran my first ever 5K
It was amazing to know that I could run that far
 seeing as how I used to hate running so bad!
For real
It was the worst.
After I ran it though I found myself craving to run more.
I set a goal to run a 10K this 4th of July.
So with all this non exercising I failed to realize that
the 4th of July is only in 6.5 short weeks!
I am no where near ready!
So I made myself a little training planner..
( I would show a pic but I am currently without Internet)
and today I started!
I will be running 8 miles this week and work my way up to 12 miles/week.
My new game plan comes with my new training regimen:
I am going to start focusing more on performance goals instead of weight.
I am so stuck on loosing weight that I have completely forgotten
to have fun!
Life is more than a number on a scale!
I am sad that I let myself get so obsessed with weight
Someone very smart
(My amazing Husband)
Once told me that if I focus on performance goals the rest will fall into place!
I will start loving the way I look along the way
For now, however, I am focusing on the finish line!
