One week of the streak complete!!

Yay!!! I'm starting my 3rd night shift in a row but made sure I had time set aside to get in just one mile. I know myself and if I skip a day it'll be easy to skip another one.

Big news, I'm going back to Weight Watchers. I'm going to start Saturday with the reveal of their new program. I know I go back and forth but WW is how I got to my lowest weight after having Berkley and I'd love to see the 160s on my scale again!!!

For the best news today, I ran a mile under 10 mins!!!

Day 1 in the books!

Well day one was hard but I stuck to my goal of logging in My Fitness Pal (MFP) my food intake. My goal is honesty to myself. I was doing really well and at dinner time I was starving, then I realized I hadn't consumed very many calories. This made leftover cookie cake irresistible . I found hot tea helps and I had 3 cups
Well I'm off to order Half Marathon by Jeff Galloway and catch some zzzzzzzzzs

It's not what you think!  Happy holidays everyone, my waistline is ready for 2013 that is for sure!!! Potlucksm, birthdays, holidays etc has put a HUGE gain on my scale boo. As I was catching up on blogs this week I read about Runners world holiday streak. This is perfect for me, especially with my work schedule. I along with Todd have pledged to run at least ONE mile a day from thanksgiving through New Year's Day.  Thursday and Friday I ran one mile, Saturday 2, and about to head out for today's run.  While I'm running I will decide what meal plan I'm starting in the am! I'm also promising to myself that I will log ALL food intake for a month starting tomorrow!

I hope everyone had a great Turkey day and didn't add the pounds like I did :-/

The plan to eat paleo for fri, sat, and Sunday worked great. Then I got off work Monday and met a friend for breakfast. I had sweet potato pancakes, eggs, bacon, and coffee. I munched on paleo foods the rest of the day but come Tuesday I binged. Tuesday was my sister's bday, she would have been 31.  Today has been good, I ate at the Habit and skipped the bun :)

I am halfway through week 2 of my half marathon training. I wrote out my schedule in my planner and trying my best to stick to it. Sunday I ran 3 miles, Tuesday 1 mile and Zumba, Wednesday 3 miles.  I have a 4 mie run planned for Friday.

Today was my first appointment at San Diego Spine and Rehab. I told them about my right knee pain I get while running and the pinched nerve I think I have. They took X-rays of my knee and shoulder, gave me a focused massage, and put me on some electronic device with ice on me. I go back tomorrow to review my X-rays and set up a treatment plan. Currently I am supposed to 3 times a week for a month.

Can you guys believe Thanksgiving is a week away?!?! Who is running a turkey trot? I am not this year but plotting a half marathon for my husband to run before we move. P.S. we are moving to Kings Bay, GA after the holidays, don't know the exact Navy definition of "after the holidays" .

different approach

So I am stuck in that rut where breafkast goes ok but somewhere between breakfast and bedtime all hell breaks loose and I have ate like it is the end of the world. I saw a quote this week about setting smaller goals so you can reach them so I decided to make a small goal. Tracking fri, sat, and sunday before I go to bfast on Monday morning. Saturday has went well!

Carlsbad half training-going the same as my diet BAD! blah I skipped my long run this week which was only 4 miles. I have to get with it!!!

I need motivation people GIVE IT TO ME!

First day of November

And day 1 sucked!! I woke up today coughing up green ick. Then I went to talk and sound like a whispering frog! My kids are in heaven! I was pretty productive today though for being under The weather. Once the kids were in school I grabbed my friend Shelly and we headed to Target (which by the way doesn't price match the military exchange ads). After catching the great 50% Halloween clearance we headed downtown to the USO to sign up for the Santa Workshop at the Harley store, we were 74-77 out of the 100 accepted for our time slot. Pics will be posted dec 8th.
Thursday is early release for the kids so once they hit home and we loaned our car out to a friend tats moving Monday we ran errands. I delivered items that we starting to clear from our housetops other homes. Then I picked up my friend Audrey's daughter and off to Santee we went. Another target run, Costco, kohls, the bank, and gas station. All that time I'm trying to keep three kids together with a squeak of a voice I'm sure everyone found it humorous.

My night ended with going to Claimjumpers with another friend followed by hot tea at panders to soothe my aching throat in hopes of getting my voice back before I have to work. Oh and I shampooed half of my living room carpet hoping to burn off dinner! Well my bed and tooth fairy duties are calling my name! My baby lost another tooth today!

And to follow with the November tradition: today I'm grateful that both my husband and I are employed.
