Slugging Away

For any and all of you wondering when I am going to post a picture of my shredded bod……hah. Not anytime soon, that’s for sure! I fell of the exercise wagon and have been too ashamed to show my face around here. I actually considered never blogging again so I wouldn’t have to tell you all I failed. It sounds hilarious now that I actually am admitting it! That slug nature is a tough one to kill! I seem far too comfortable to sit around drinking Coke (okay honestly that’s not a regular occurrence but it’s what I happen to be doing at this very moment) as long as I hover around the same weight. I heard it said once, “Don’t judge your success and failure by what the scale says, but by how your clothes fit.” Well I’m happy with the size I am now and my jeans are not getting any snugger, so I have been foolishly allowing myself to say I’m doing fine. I’m not. I’ve been dealing with a lot of back pain and headaches again lately.

I’m still planning on running that 5k in June, and I hear my race partner has been sticking with her training (way to go Jessica!) so I better get back at it this week. Sigh. No one said this would be easy, right?

    Right. I am proud of you anyhow… I am happy with my clothing and my weight but I know I should be more fit for health sake and I am encouraged by your willingness to keep at it, try again and all that. Don’t quit blogging for that reason, he he he…

    You are the one who encouraged me to get going with that training schedule, so I guess we can both be credited with encouraging each other. And by the way, you look great!

    I thought you were looking fabulous on Sunday!! You are sooooo tiny!!
    Don’t give up on the training or the blogging…persevere and enjoy them both!
    Love you girl!

    alright! You’re back at it. So, my 30 day shred dvd is collecting dust on the shelf, the good news is that my milk has come back in. I think shredding is a little beyond what my body and Mac need right now. Running (even walking) is a fabulous way to keep your heart strong and your body healthy. I’ll pray for your motivation, endurance & time to carve out of an insane schedule of rearing 3 children and loving a good man.
