I am struggling. Food hasn't been good and exercise has been non-existent. Food choices have just put me in mainteance mode. I have actually maintained the same weight for the past 3 weeks. So I haven't gained which is a major plus but my goal is fat loss and that just isn't happening with the extra foods I have been eating. Then, I am registered to run in a 1/2 marathon in Memphis on December 6th well in order to that one must TRAIN!! So that means practice runs and that hasn't been happening consistently. I ran 1 day last week and that won't cut it. I am not sure what is up with me. Just my mindset/attitude I am sure. I just need to re-focus and get back to it. The only way to do it is to JUST DO IT!
Back to the basics this week:
-I have logged my food in sparkpeople today and I will every other day this week as
-I am chugging the water
- I have 2 challenges this week with work luncheons so will make the best choices as I possibly can and I think there will be decent healthy choices to choose from and I will not have the dessert.
- Thursday will be an all day meeting so I won't have access to as much water so I will just do the best I can.
Exercise plan: goal is 4 day, 3 runs and 1 ST
Monday - run 3 miles
Tuesday - upper body strength train
Wednesday - run 3 miles
Thursday - off
Friday, Saturday or Sunday run long run of 7-8 miles.
I will keep you posted on how I am doing. This too shall pass and I will get over this speed bump.
