SetbackMy fitness journey over the past few years has sent me up and down on the scale, as well as my clothing sizes. I thought I had finally made a lifestyle change at the end of this year's challenge, and kicked that weight gain yoyo out of the picture; but the past few months I have had some setbacks. Everyone knows that life happens, and sometimes life throws a lot at you all at once. Because of this, I had to take time off from the gym and ended up putting back on some of the pounds. Needless to say, I am disappointed and not happy about it.
Getting Back on TrackSo, now you are caught up to where I am today. I am ready to get back into shape and back on track with running races. The first step is eating right, and that will take some willpower during the holidays; but I will use the race as my motivation. I plan to complete this 15k in January and not worry about what place I am in. Less than 12 weeks to train makes me a bit nervous, but no one said it was going to be easy. Today I began my first official day of race training, and completed a short continuous run at a steady pace. It was hard, and my muscles screamed for me to give up; but I kept going. Even though I am second guessing being able to run a 15k so soon, I need to do this for myself and prove that I can do it.
Follow My ProgressI plan to document my progress each week and hopefully get better and better every time I run. You can follow my journey on this Blog, on Instagram, and Facebook.
