We are over a month and a half into the new year. I made it through the birthdays and the holidays. I made it through the PF Changs Half Marathon with a time of 2:50. I was pleased considering it was my first. I trained. I ran. It was great an looking forward to doing it again next year.
Once all that training was over and said and done, my weight has remained at a constant. I'm not sure if that was a good or bad thing. The unfortunate thing that I have been dealing with is a major lack of energy. Not sure if its a nutritional thing, but I have been learning that most of the issues that I have usually are associated to a bit of everything. I have been struggling to get out of bed in the morning. At first I was anxious to get up at 5:00 in the morning and get in my workout, looked forward to them. Now, its like a battle just to get past the snooze alarm. Some nights I struggle to get past putting my daughter to bed. My housework some days seems not to get done because I fall asleep before I can get to it, and waking up to just barely get the little one and myself ready to head out for the day.
I had been doing the TurboFire workout and was really enjoying it. I still do....just not sure why I let myself fall out of that. I think part of my problem was that I haven't been seeing the results I wanted to see. The workouts were great-but when it came down to it, the weight didn't go down like I wanted to see. Another part of the equation I believe was that my eating habits could have been a bit better. You can't under eat, and think that making it up with a binge of bad foods on another day are going to garner you any loss on the scale.
Here we are at today. I have decided to take control of my life in different ways. I have decided to take on the strength training workout Chalene Extreme. It will be at my door on Monday, along with Shakeology. On that note, I have also decided to join the Beachbody team as a coach, starting with one of their challenges. So, starting Tuesday, please ride along with me on this journey. I would love to have all of you follow me as I start this positive change to my life. And if you would like to do more than follow by joining along side of me with a challenge, I would love to help you along on that road too.
Here's to the new me and perhaps, maybe, a new you!!!
