I’m Back

I apologize for the elongated absence. I got caught up in this little thing called life, but lately I have found myself wanting this outlet back to share my workouts, my eats (yum…and not), my struggles working out, my motivations (and lack thereof), and my difficulties.

Since I last posted, I did my first triathlon. It felt like hell going through it, but at the end I was on such an endorphin high that I went a little race crazy. I also completed a Warrior Dash with several friends

And I loved it!

However, I have started lacking off in my training and with triathlon number 2 around the corner and the hopes of starting to do half marathons in the winter off season, I am back here for you to motivate me and hopefully for me to motivate you.

To start off I have a little 5k race with my cousin this weekend, and I’ve decided to go balls to the wall for running it. Normally whenever I run I feel like I need to keep some energy in reserve so that way I don’t get exhausted, and then I end up going slower than normal. 

An update on my weight loss: I am down 15 pounds and counting and feeling better than ever. More than the weight on the scale is how my clothes fit and how I look in the mirror. It feels so good to look like I am sucking in whenever that’s just the way my stomach is now. I still have a long way to go, but I am getting there. I think it’s time for some belated before/midway pictures to be coming your way. If you ask for them, you will receive.

What are ways that you stay motivated and on top of things?

    Hi, your picture looks like you had a blast! I admire you for taking the step to say “I’m going to get healthy and fit” About a year ago my attitude was “I don’t care i’m just going to eat whatever” I wasn’t overweight but I had no energy and went through a month where I was sick and feeling run down. I decided that I wanted to give my body the nutrients it needs and to get my energy back. I didn’t do a lot of exercise i just completely changed what I was eating. More more more more veges and less processed crap! I’m still naughty because i’m obsessed with chocolate but instead of eating a lot i just have a little treat now and then. I want to start getting into some weights. I have a blog about graphic design totally unrelated to yours but I love reading about others peoples motivation to get fit and healthy and it gives myself inspiration! Go Girl!

      Thanks for reading! I am slightly (okay, really) obsessed with fruit, but sweets have always been my downfall with eating. It takes a lot of conscious effort for me to eat healthy, but luckily planning meals helps that a lot. Hopefully I will get some more recipes up here soon! I love weight lifting too. At first it felt tedious, but as muscles started to appear it gets more and more fun. Keep it going!
