I set up a team called "Running from Failure" if you'd like to run with Julia and I. We are planning to be in the 10 AM heat. They will put teams in the same heat. Trust me, I know it's scary to do your 1st obstacle course race. I KNOW! Just give it a shot.....
I havent' been sleeping well lately. Not really sure why. The start of the school year is always stressful. I seem to be taking way more to bed with me lately. For the teachers out there I have been dreaming about Read to Self and doing data analysis on math problems. No good at all.
I am taking 2 rest days this week. Last week I wrote about how much I hate exercise right now. Exercise makes me feel better, but not when I have so much resentment towards finding the time. Today is a school day, training after school, and then open house (8:00 AM-7:30 PM kind of day). I chose to not get up at 5:30 and run. Hopefully I'll be able to walk the track for a bit at my lunch today.
Eating has been ok with the exception of the new candy bowl in my room. First thing on the list today is to put the candy bowl up high in the closet. Out of sight, out of mind. My water intake has been reduced in the last few days and I am noticing a difference in my skin. Starting the day off with a full water bottle.
Kids are busy with sports. Sissy is doing swimming twice a week for 2 more weeks + soccer on Saturdays. Bug is doing soccer twice a week with yours truly as his soccer coach. I have no idea what I'm doing, but we had fun at the first practice. I figure they are 5 and 6, so having fun is all that matters.
On June 19, 2009 I started my weight loss journey. It has become quite the journey! As of today (2-1-11) I have lost 162 pounds and have gained a whole new life. This blog is a continuation of my journey. I hope to inspire and encourage others through my process.
