{Wednesday Weigh In} 8.1

Written by Mommy Cameron | Getting Fit

90 days until my birthday!  Yeah, I know it is weird that I know that, but I do because that means I have 90 days to ideally lose around 20 pounds by my birthday.  A totally doable goal.

I have to admit that I have not been doing great with my food choices and I need to be more consistent with my weight training.  I will do really well for a while, then something happens.  Honestly, I am so thankful that I have not gained any weight during this time.

Over the last two weeks I am down 2 more pounds!  Slow and steady wins the race.

Over the last two weeks I have also cut back running 6 days a week to 5 days a week.  My body was tired.  My legs would feel like jello.  I was having trouble sleeping.  I have a spot on my right foot that has been sore.  So I took these as signs that I was over training and decided to cut back.  I have also cut back from doing the whole triathlon on Sundays to just biking and swimming.

I have been trying to decide what to do next.  Do I want to train for a marathon?  A half marathon?  Or, work on my speed and do some shorter races.  Or, do I focus more on weight training and have my running become secondary (this probably won’t happen.)

I am not sure what to do, but I know I do better with some sort of goal in mind.  Nothing crazy, just something to keep me focused.  However at the same time, I also have a lot on my plate right now and I don’t want any of that to suffer.  (My husband is gone every week.  I homeschool my three very active boys.  I run our homeschool group.  I host homeschool co op classes at my home every week.)  I also don’t want to wear myself out, because then my relationships suffer.

What do you think I should do?  Leave me a comment and let me know.
