Slacker Reformed

There's nothing that I want to do more on a rainy day, than cuddle up in my covers, sleep in, and watch some TV.

And since it is POURING today... that seemed like the perfect idea.

Except, I've been a hardcore slacker for the past two weeks and I need to get my arse back in gear.


I have ran twice in the past 2 weeks. TWICE in 14 days. Way to go me!

And I've been slacking on the eating right... which was evident when I lost 0.3 pounds last week.

Oy vey.

I have my first 5K in 13 days and I need to get my butt in gear. My running has been piss poor and if I don't want to embarrass myself, then I need to get my act together.

I mean... for the most part I have been doing pretty well. I can not run longer than I ever have in my ENTIRE life. I am down 14 pounds. My old pants BARELY fit now. To the point that I just had to go out and buy new clothes so that I don't accidentally moon someone at work (which almost happened on Thursday).

That's great. Wonderful. I am so incredibly proud of myself. I have done MORE than I ever thought I was capable of. Really.

BUT... the battle ain't over friends.

I'm halfway to my goal, which means that I still have a long way to go.

I still need to train for my 5K. Get more in shape.

I'm hoping to join an actual gym soon so that I can work the machines to tone up as well, because as much as I have lost, things still jiggle. Yuck.

So, today it starts... again.

I am going to try to eat right.

Run at least 4 times this week.

AND add in some other types of work outs. I've been having a hard enough time getting my running in, and then I just leave. Which is better than nothing, but it isn't the sweat drenching, muscle burning, workout that I am looking for.

So... I am listing it here, so hopefully it keeps me honest. At the end of the week, I'm hoping to talk about how much of a rockstar that I was this week.

Which means... I need to start doing Firm Fridays again. It kept me honest because I couldn't wait to brag about how great I did... because I'm an a-hole like that.

Well my friends, those are my goals for this week. I hope you all had a fabulous weekend and your Monday is a little less rain ridden than mine!
