Working on my Fitness

So it’s me again. I know, I have been such a flake lately. I can get Monday and Tuesday posts done over the weekend and then BAM the week slaps me in the face and I just don’t have time.

The terrible part is that it has really been messing with my weight. I have been eating terrible aka everything. It’s winter and it’s cold and I love food…the end.

I know that is no excuse :(

Anyway the past two weeks I have been attempting to get back into shape, but it hasn’t been going well. I haven been too tired to get up in the morning for the gym and when I do, running on the dreadmill is miserable.

I can’t keep making excuses though! So I have committed to getting myself back into shape.

That started today. I was scheduled for 10 miles, but it was 10 degrees out. I know myself. I would have gone a mile in the cold and said screw this and came back and that would have been it. Instead I decided to go to the gym.

I made sure to wear my favorite shirt so everyone knew how I felt.

It was pretty terrible. I could barely run a mile, but it was progress nonetheless.

I did 5 miles with a run/walk strategy.

Then when I got home I made all my food for the week. One of my downfalls has been that I wake up late and run around getting food together. This usually results in me bringing random things that bore me and then I eat badly.

So I made 3 different recipes that I will eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner this week.

Breakfast = Baked Banana and Coconut Oatmeal

Lunch = Turkey Veggie Quiche

Dinner = Crock Pot Chicken Pot Pie

I had the pot pie for dinner tonight and it was yummy.

I usually get bored of eating the same things day after day, but I am hoping this week I can convince myself that it is better than eating like shit.

I also have a new morning regimen I am going to try this week. Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Sunday = runs. I mean I have a half marathon in 25 days. Need to get it together! Tuesday and Thursday is strength training and Saturday I am going to try light yoga or rest.

One thing I do have as of right now is motivation! Let’s do this!
