Hey friends! 🙂
Please excuse my 2 + week hiatus from blogging. Life got a hold of me….you know how that goes.
So now you might ask, what’s been going on since my half marathon?
Every time someone asks me, “so how was your 1/2 marathon?” I get so excited I almost pee myself. No but really I still love talking about it. 🙂 Unfortunately I suffered a minor injury from that 13.1 mile grind so I haven’t been able to run as much as I’d like to.
My painful half smile
I basically diagnosed myself with a wussy injury called tendonitus. I consider it wussy because it sucks and I just have to wait it out and give myself a little break from running for now.
See ya later 4 months of intense training....stupid knee
Although I have taken a
short break from running, I haven’t slacked off in the gym. I’ve been working out at the studio my normal two times a week with Craig, and I’ve incorporated on extra day of weights with the boyfriend at the gym. Mike and I hardly ever see each other during the week so cramming in a 6:00 am gym session together is considered quality time in my book! It’s a win win situation really, we get “hang out”, and we motivate each other to get our butt’s outta bed!
Yay for quality time!
My New Fitness Goals
Since I accomplished my last goal of finishing my first half marathon, it was time for me to re-asses the health & fitness goals I’d like to achieve. So here we go:
- Shed 5 lbs of FAT – I’m gonna come out and say it because I have no shame. I currently weigh 135 lbs & I’d love to be at 130 lbs.
- Lean out my muscles
- Focus on strengthening my weak areas – abs, hips
- Stretch a lot
- Try yoga for the first time
How do I plan on achieving these goals?
- Cut carbs for dinner. I love love love my breads and pasta’s and I know I need them to fuel my body, so I will eat them in the morning and through out the day. As soon as I get home from work and the sun goes down, bye bye carbs…..Hello protein & veggies!
- Continue my 3 day a week weight room routine. Keep the weights low and the reps high high high!
- Kick up the cardio. If running is on the back burner I’ll have to be creative and incorporate other means of cardio into the mean time.
- Use the damn foam roller that’s sitting in my family room next to the couch!
Use me! Use me!
- Bought 6 session of Yoga on groupon 6 months ago and they are about to expire so I better use them!
- TRY to cut down on the sweets. This one is a tough one for me, I eat something sweet almost every single day. I know that it’s pretty much impossible for me to cut the sweets out totally, so instead I’m just going to TRY to cut back!
