I'm back in the game! It's taken me awhile to get better! And I'm a little sore today because the 9 day break kind of set me back a bit on my running. Today as I ran (I had no tv) I kept thinking to myself "F^ck You body!!! You won't let me get pregnant, but damn you I'm going to kick your ass into shape whether you like it or not!" That's right folks I'm taking this bitch by the horns! LOL! The fact that this POF, Thyroid issue, and cycling drugs, f'd up my body, just feels like a slap in the face. You can't have a baby so let's make you fat too! Hahaha! (the universe laughs) So I say no more! I'm in the driver's seat now and I'm not taking no for an answer! No more excuses!

1. Reiterate my goal and where I stand in reference to this goal.
My goal is to regain my healthy lifestyle. It's not so much about the weight as it is about how I feel. But the weight is the best indicator I have currently. My #1 goal before my next transfer is to complete a Try a Tri by September.
2. Discuss what I am doing to Achieve these Goals.
I am running! A lot of running. I'm running about 4-5 times per week. I'm currently running anywhere between 3 miles - 3.5 miles each run. I've also added in some weight training into my program. So every other day at the gym I would my back, shoulders, legs and abs. I'm trying really hard to get more time on the StairMaster. But I am finding this rather difficult as I seem to reserve all my cardio time for my running. I would love to get 3 miles done under 30 minutes and I'm getting close I think I'm at about 33 minutes now. Slowly but surely I keep upping my pace and my length of running. This week I'm doing 9 minutes running, 1 minute of walking and repeat.
Friday - ran 3.06 miles
Monday - Running class. 9 minute run, 1 minute walk, repeat 3x.
Tuesday - Ran 3.5 miles, weight training circuit.
Wednesday - Ran 3 miles
Activities and Goals for this Week
Thursday - Run 3.5 and circuit training with 1/2 hour elliptical to close work out.
Friday - Run 3.5 miles
Saturday - StairMaster 1/2 hour and circuit training
Sunday - Running Class (Outdoor run 5 km)
Monday - Off
Tuesday - Run 3.5 miles with circuit training with 1/2 hour step master to close workout.
Wednesday - Run 3.5 miles
*I also intend to only eat out 2x this coming week. And to make healthy home cooked dinners. I also need to increase my water intake. I'm not hydrating enough for the amount of running I am doing.
3. Post a reasonably healthy recipe, a cooking tip, a new idea for working out, a photo update on my weight loss, or anything else I'd like to share.
I have a tip again this week! You really need to have some protein within an hour after a workout. Which can be super difficult with a baby. But did you know that a small glass of chocolate milk is a fantastic and quick source of protein? And it's yummy so it feels like a treat. And trust me when you have just finished a workout the small amount of calories that are in chocolate milk is not going to ruin your diet.
