Runner. Mother. Wife. I started running to lose weight. I have lost over 50 lbs. I have done 2 half marathons, one full marathon, a duathlon, and two triathlons. Next up? My goal is to be happy. Be healthy. Be active. Challenge myself in ways I never dreamed of until I started this journey. Running is what got me started, but I recently discovered I love biking. Who knows where the road will take me.
I accidentally left my water bottle open in my gym bag.
Everything is soaked.
My friend’s gym bag that was under mine is also wet.
Nothing worse than a wet sports bra.
My head feels like it could explode. So much pressure.
My arms feel strong though, so I will focus on that awesomeness.
Lack of sleep means the coffee will be my best friend today. I am okay with that. It’s probably been feeling lonely with all of my tea drinking lately.
Today’s workout: bike
Dinner: baked chicken, potatoes, and cauliflower
Today’s goal: smile and and be thankful
My table now has six chairs around it. This makes me happy.
Tonight was hard with the teens. I have never had to deal with teen angst before.
Luckily, my husband stepped in and turned him around.
The last hour and a half was spent laughing and joking and making fun plans.
I am learning sometimes that’s more important than homework. That’s what they need.
Today L told me, “It’s nice to know someone cares about me.”
And we do. And it’s nice to know he knows we do.
I had the best run. I felt like I could run forever.
I only went 3 miles, but it was just what I needed going into Saturday’s race.
And then I did core.
My abs will hate me tmrw. Back to the grind on that one.
- I have been slacking on my core routine. I need to get back on it.
- I am having slight anxiety about my Dallas trip at the end of the month. I hate leaving my family for extended periods of time.
- I almost weighed myself yesterday, but then I remembered it didn’t matter.
- I am so ready to spend the weekend with some of my favorite Tumblrs.
- Raising teens is hard. Especially when they don’t live in your home.
Can a person drink too much tea?
Specifically, Throat Coat decaffeinated tea?
6116 m row + strength
I am spent. It was a full gym today. It’s always fun with more people.
