This Sunday is the marathon that I am registered to run. About six weeks ago I decided I do not have the time to properly train for it. It is bittersweet, but I think I made the right decision. After my dad passed away in May my life has been all sorts of chaos. I have gained between 7 and 10 lbs and have been unable to get rid of them. I lose motivation easily. I have also had heart palpitations and extreme anxiety. I am getting those things treated and hoping to be in a better place soon.
Today I did a 5 mile run (average pace 9:45). I also did 30DS. This is the best workout day I have had in weeks. Gotta start somewhere!
Also, due to my health issues (anemia continues in addition to other things) I started eating meat after 17 years as a vegetarian. The biggest difference to me is that I am full easier and not filling up on as many processed carbs.
That is my life update for now!
So lately I am up and down about food and weight and exercise.
-I walk the dog or do the 30DS most days but I have lost my running mojo hardcore. Managed to do 4 miles yesterday but didn’t feel it today. I hope I get it back.
-After 16 years as a vegetarian, I started eating meat about a month ago. I don’t notice a ton of difference except that I am more full and maybe have a little more energy (it’s hard to tell with this chemistry class sucking the life out of me).
-The scale can suck it. It tells me I am up about 7lbs from last year but my clothes fit the same.
-This photo is how I look now, I have definitely been smaller but I try to be happy with where I am at.
