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.

I think at some point we all go through periods like that. You're not new to running, so you have more than enough time to train for the half on Dec. 6th. YOU CAN DO IT!
