Home Again, Home Again

Exercise: 6.5 mile run 9:34 avg pace, 40 min mommy fit class

Music Man is at a concert and right now is the most relaxed I've felt in over a week. Vacation was amazing but more of a party than relaxing. I'll post some pics tomorrow.

I did get a few runs in. We were staying on the island in Havasu and there is a 3.5 mile bike loop in the middle so I ran it nice and easy Friday and Sunday. Taking it easy for the past few days was amazing and after today's run I feel no fatigue in my legs at all. I think it's the first 5+ mile run I've finished and not been the least bit tired. I honestly felt like I could run a marathon today. Rest days are awesome.

Unfortunately I took it a little too easy for the amount that I ate and my clothes are feeling a bit tight. I have to get super serious about a pre holiday shape up. I can't believe Thanksgiving is only 3 weeks away! I want to set goals but I feel like I set myself up for failure when I do that. I just want my jeans to fit comfortably again so I need to keep track of what i eat which means probably tracking points again.

My fitness regimen is pretty spot on. I do cardio 6-7 days a week, 3-4 of which are running. And I do some sort of strength training 2-3 days per week. There's always room for improvement but I honestly feel that my exercise routine is awesome and it's the eating I need to reign in.

I guess I will set a goal of tracking my points starting tomorrow and if the scale doesn't budge I can scrap it next Sunday if I want.

What are your health and fitness goals for November?

  1. My jeans are also getting a little tight :) That has made me decide that I need to start eating better (darn sweet tooth!) and I need to start exercising. I just haven't found the motivation yet, but I think it is almost there!
