where does the time go?

I can't believe it has been 24 days since my last post- how does time go so quickly?

Well, for me- since that is just over 3 weeks- it includes interviewing for and landing a job I've always dreamed to have, giving my notice and having to wrap up all current projects and leave detailed notes for others to learn and balance my fitness schedule with my home/life schedule, plus juggle kids and find time to breathe? well, I would like to blog more- really I would. But as someone told me once when I started this blog- I'd rather write when I have something to say than simply use it as a simple "here's what I did today". It's ok for that sometimes too- but I want it to be more.

Eating-wise, I've struggled for a couple of weeks- and the scale shows it. I have not yet had a week since Christmastime where I actually put on more than a .4 in weight; but I have a feeling this week may be that week. Between altered workout schedules due to long hours at the old job and having lots of "this will be our last time to go to lunch" lunches - I've completely overeaten on many occassions. Not wildly binged or anything- just too much of not the right things.

I start the new job tomorrow with a trip to Boston (home office is located there) and I know that eating right while travelling is a challenge for me. I am planning to do as well as I can- and have made the decision to face my weigh in on Friday morning for what it is- ONE WEEK. I will get back on track and continue towards my goals.

On a running front- training for the half marathon is going well and this weekend, for the first time, I will run 9+ miles. it is a little daunting, but having done nearly 8 miles 2 weeks ago, I am confident that I can do it. I really do think I'll have a bit of a cry the first time I run 10 miles. 1 year ago, March 2010, I couldn't run more than a minute or two without walking for an extended recovery- and now I'm moving towards running 10 miles without stopping. I don't care who you are- never say never (hear me, Bieber?)- it can be done.

  1. Oh, you are SO close to 10, and you're right; it's a HUGE accomplishment!
