Instagram always makes me forget that I have a blog! I really love the accessibility to instagram and how convenient it is, but I do love my blog too. I cannot forget that. Plus I love you all who read it and keep me just as motivated.
Life has been great! I have been hitting goals and feeling over all good about life. I have made some small changes in my life to try and make things simpler.
I have stopped weighing myself. You might be thinking why on earth would you do that!? Well, I was obsessive. I would weigh sometimes twice a day. That is just not productive for any healthy lifestyle. I knew that then, but now I have really implemented ways to change it. I still plan on weighing once a month, but really the scale does not need to tell me if I am going to have a good day or not.
Another reason is, I am in the last 20-25 lbs of my weight loss. YES THAT IS SUCH AN AMAZING FEELING! However, this is hardest weight to lose or so I have been told. I know that the weight is not going to fall off like it did before. I have to remember that I need to do other things to measure my progress by how my clothes fit, how I feel or how my measurements are. That is what I am focusing on.
I ran my second half marathon last week and man was it tough. It was in the rain and very hilly. Plus I was out of town the few days before and only slept about 11 hours between 2 days. Basically, I just knew I wasn't going to do well. But, I finished and actually beat my first half time by 5 minutes and to me that is worth it! I have another one coming up in June and that one I am really excited about! I know about 15 women who are doing it as well so it will be nice to see some friendly faces.
I have taken the week off of training since my last half and will start back up again next week. Its my true love and I don't know what I would ever do if I couldn't run. (WOULD HAVE NEVER SAID THIS A YEAR AGO) I have also started weight training and I have hopes that it will improve my strength and sculpt my body.
I am also planning on writing a few ebooks on more detailed topics for those who might be interested. I get questions each day through emails and messages and I would love to write some books on more of those topics. If you have any requests, please let me know now!
