I need a new goal

Since running my last half marathon in Dallas my training/running has been less than spectacular. Add that to the trip home and food tour of Delaware County and well I really need to put my foot down and start working out.

Which means I need a new goal. I enjoy running. Kind of. Sort of. I know it's good for me, but I am inherently a very lazy person. So much so that if I don't have a reason to get up off the couch, I won't.

Today is Wednesday and I haven't run or gone to the gym since Saturday. Sunday was my day off and then I found excuses not to do anything Monday and Tuesday.

It needs to stop! I am getting better about my eating, with the exception of my Chuy's slip on Monday. Seriously. I can not live near Chuy's. It's too dangerous.

So now I'm the the hunt for my next run to sign up for. I would like it to be within a few hours of here, but I'm not sure what the local road race calendar looks like. I know, I know, I should know all this. Hopefully I will find something for May or June or both.


  1. This one is a really good one

New Goals - Lean

So I finally went back for my follow up body fat test last Tuesday. I didn't really know what to expect. I knew I had lost some weight and I could see more muscle definition, but I wasn't sure. I told myself I would be happy with anything under 30% since I was 33.8 the last time I went.

So of course in the lead up to the test I had like 5 cheat meals. Insert eye roll here. Saturday was margaritas and Mexican for dinner. Sunday was brunch and champagne and pizza. And then Monday was more Mexican bc of Sunday. Whoops.

Clearly I had to run Tuesday morning before the test. hahahaha

Then at lunch time I headed over to visit Heather. The got a new machine that's so supposed to be even more accurate than the BodPod and you don't even have to strip down lol.

So my new results were:
Weight - 147.6
Body Fat - 27.8

So I lost 6.3 pounds and 6% body fat. Total time elapsed between tests was 16 weeks.

This places me in the moderately lean category for women.

Moving forward, I think …

Hello Weekend
