I have not fallen off the face of the earth!

Just so you know I am still here and still kickin'. Just been really busy at work (this is my busiest time of the year. It will die down in about 1 month) and then busy in the evenings too and I haven't been spending any time on the computer.

My food has been good. I have brought my calories down and cut out most grainy type carbs like bread, pasta, bagels, english muffins b/c they stick right on my belly like glue. Which is why I went up about 8 pounds and 10 inches during my marathon training b/c I was eating all of those foods regardless if I needed them or not. The scale is being my friend and slowly coming down. Right before the marathon I was at 157.2 and now about 3 1/2 weeks later I am at 152.6 so yea. All of my pants are fitting much better and aren't nearly as snug as they were.

As for the exercise it is still non-existent. I am just not motivated to get started back although I will I promise. I have some goals to meet like reducing body fat and my inches so strength training must be added to my exercise schedule. I have got to kick the intensity up a few notches so I am keeping my heart rate up and burning some seriuos fat.

I will be going to Phit-N-Phat's version of what we call Phat Camp in Nashville at Corinne's house at the end of June and then right after that I am going to the beach SO I need to shed the fat so I can get into my shorts and of course be in good shape for Phat camp so I don't kill over from the intense workouts Corinne will put us though. I can't wait to meet more of the Phit-N-Phat girls in person. It is sure to be a good time and a lot of hard work too.

Phat camp DOES sound awesome. I'm lacking in the exercise myself. All I'm getting done is my runs, and not as many this last week. Glad to see work didn't swallow you up.
