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.
