Quick Update

Sorry for all the test posts. New phone, and I'm trying to figure out how to do everything from it! Everything is CRAZY. Between my school, kids' schools, getting everything ready to start clinic next quarter, husband's work schedule going all wonky, and about fifty million other things, I have NOT had much time to blog. HOWEVER, just because I haven't been blogging doesn't mean that I haven't been working. I didn't post a weigh in last week because I had an exact maintain on the scale--steady at 206.6. I wasn't overly crushed, though, because I'd lost about 4 inches from my waist, arms, and thighs. (Doing that wretched 30 Day Shred, you know). This week, I haven't measured yet (because I lost the sheet of paper with my old measurements) but I'm down 2 pounds to 204.6. So I'll take it. I'm starting to feel smaller again, and I've progressed to doing Level 2 on the Shred without too much modification. Jillian Michaels is an unforgiving spawn of Satan.
Food is less of an issue right now, mostly because I haven't had time to obsess about it.  Making healthy choices is easy right now...maybe its just because my trip is getting closer. 19 days!
Also, I'm signed up for two races coming up shortly. The first one is Detroit Runner's "I Just Felt Like Running Virtual 5k." coming up this Saturday. I haven't been doing much running lately, so this will probably be ugly. The other race is the Crimestoppers' Azalea Run in Savannah on Mothers Day Weekend. That one is a10k. The coolest thing about that race is that my mom is going to be working it, and I'm going to bring the kids down and spend the whole weekend with my parents. I don't get to do that often enough, and I'm really looking forward to some quality family time. My mom even paid my registration fee, that made me feel really special. So, I'm going to be following the Hal Higdon 10k training plan...probably the beginner one because, honestly, I've not been a runner lately. I'm so excited about getting back out there though! I've been dying to run lately, and I've let some external issues scare me out of doing it. Seriously, you wouldn't even believe me if I told you...Suffice it to say that I've been sticking to exercises that I can do indoors. Anyway, I've missed blogging and I've missed everyone in Bloggity Land. I'm going to make this more of a priority. I do better when I blog often. I wrote this entire post from my new phone using this thing called Swype, so any weird typos or misplaced words are because of that. I'm trying to learn. Layer, taters.

  1. Your phone blog looks great! Have fun with your upcoming races!

  2. I've missed you. Good job on the exercising. I'm going to start a water aerobics class next week which I hope will jump start my going back to running.


  3. Welcome Back! Congrats on the lost inches that is awesome. Good luck with the races!

  4. yaay for the race plans! I am working on getting some scheduled for me too since I am assuming the nice weather is coming(I say this from beneath several feet of snow ...haha).
