So I feel like I've fallen behind a bit, but I know the exact reason why. On Thursday I did my final weigh in for my Diet Bet, and I found out that while I did lose 5 lbs, it was not enough to be a winner. This should have sent me into a fit of exercise rage at my crappy metabolism and my inability to turn down sweets, instead I made a pan of brownies and skipped my Friday run. Admittedly not the most healthy of choices, but I'm making the turn after several days of moping.
Saturday I got up for my favorite Yoga class and the stretching felt sooo good. I ate healthy all day long, but caved and had a drink when we went out to sing Karaoke. (I totally rocked out Peggy Lee's Fever and 99 Luftballoons auf Deutsch btw!) A very rainy Sunday arrived, and I hauled my bum to the gym. I did some heavy full body lifting and then ran 4 miles on the treadmill. I felt great the rest of the day, and like I'm back on track.
I'm so looking forward to accomplishing my fitness goals this year, and Annika has already commented that she can't wait to come cheer me on in a race again soon.
35.2 miles done toward my 500 mile goal for the year!
FYI: I am so happy to have weekly, monthly, and yearly goals for this challenge. They really help me keep in perspective how much I have left and how to accomplish it all. I'm also applying this same weekly/monthly/yearly goal idea to keep me on track for my dissertation. :-)
