I'm finding it...

This has been along rough year...for running. I have been fighting lack of motivation, time, and balance! During that struggle I have managed to gain weight, lose muscle, and age a bit!

I don't know what happened....but I can tell it happened. I'M FED UP! I decided that the time isn't going to stop...or slow down, while I figure my fitness out! Somehow, I have managed to fit in an hour workout everyday this week! WHOO HOO!

My husband who has been trying to help me find my "mojo", with encouraging words. He is thrilled! We both know that the truth is, if you just take the time to fit in fitness, and scripture time...then the day flows smoother. Suddenly, you may not need more hours, because your able to accomplish more in the hours that we do have!

I'm not going to pretend I am at that point...yet. But I have been there...and know that it is there! Right now I am paying for my lack of exercise! This week is just survival!

I did not run this week! I decided to work on building some muscle. I did 2 body pump classes...circuit weight training! Two days of Yoga! Two days of 1 hour RPM about burn! I'm talking major leg burning...and calorie burning!

I'm excited for next's just a week at a time...and this week was a success!=)


  1. That is great news! Just keep it going, you'll get there.

  2. congratulations!! I like the idea of just doing it like scripture studying. I'm also trying to figure out my schedule because I need to get less chunky. Of course if I put down the chocolate that'll help me too..... I have a long ways to go. LOL

    I wish you success for next week!

  3. One day at a time, one week at a time! Just stay at it and before you know it, you'll love where your fitness is.

  4. well done - getting back into things can be really rewarding. My trick to get out of a slump is to focus on something austere for awhile (like not eating meat during lent, or just drinking 24 pints in a year!). Usually this distraction gets me well motivated to train like mad!

  5. Glad you had a good week, I eally relate to the difficulties fitting it all in but yeah onceyou get in the rhythm of it it does get easier doesn't it!
