I tell you what

Things just haven't been going good for me lately. I don't know what the problem is, why it started, but I wish it'd leave. I took some time...no reason really, just because. So tonight the hubby and I tried to get out. I ran w/ the kids and the stroller and he rode his bike, in circles around us.

I barely got through the first mile and my freakin' muscle started hurting in my shin again. >:|

So I called it a night as I was gimping trying to get home safely. But I managed a mile and a half in 22 minutes...14 minute avg pace. New record for me. So once we got home my hubby blew the dust of the rower and I attempted 4 sets of 5 minutes. I barely made it through 3 sets. I averaged 2:45 splits, which is okay just not where I've been in the past. I still have a long road ahead of me, but the silver lining is that I've lost a lot of my "gut" and it was very very apparent when I rowed. I didn't have to spread my knees as far apart when breaking...it was very nice. So I know my hard work in the past has paid off, I just need to find my motivation again. I also need to work on my tendons/muscles so that when I jog I don't get those fabulous pains. I know it all comes with time, I just wish I could go for a nice run and come home feeling great and not limp the next day.

Food wise, I'm terribly off track. I haven't logged my food for 3 days now and yesterday I only ate twice. TERRIBLE. I know better, I just don't know what got into me. So I'm moving on, going to be logging my food again, and watching what I'm eating, instead of just putting what ever is in front of me in my mouth. I can do this, I know I can...I just have to.

Bobbi, these days are completely normal and actually I've been having then recently too. I think there comes a point when we need to "stop" dieting for a second to catch our breath and get refocussed. I'm certainly no expert, but I feel like it's a good thing. Everyone needs a break! You've been working your butt off for 8 months now (I realized that last night), 8 MONTHS! A few days does not ruin everything, nor does it mean you wont be just as successful again once you get a renewed boost of motivation! I love ya girlie and you.are.fabulous! HUGS!!
