Here I am!!

Ok so yes I'm sorry...I have been MIA. My life ex extreme chaos right now. Working 2 jobs, bowling 2 nights a week, part time school, training for the half, and TRYING to have a social life (which there is hardly any of).

Onto my running...I am on leave of absense right now for the week, which should be almost done, doctors orders. Two months ago I had tendinits in my left foot/up my leg. They gave me arch supports in my regular everyday shoes and that fixed my problem. Continued to run and felt great. About two weeks ago I started having pains in my left hip/pelvis. So went to the doctor of course now I have tendinitis in there. Didn't know you could get it in so many places. So they put me on 600mg IB Profen 3 times a day and NO GYM! Ok so needless to say I'm dying from not going. My energy level is down, my moral is down, my depression is up as its winter and have no way to release my energy and clear my head. But I am still going on. On the bright side I am starting to feel better. Today was the first day I was able to get out of bed and not have to run for the meds. It's about 3pm and I still have not taken them. I am about to take on though just to keep my inflamation down.

I am hoping to get back to running Tuesday if not Wednesday. But for sure sometime this week! I am just itching to do something. I have been posting all my updates and such on Daily Mile. Add me on there if you have it!!

In addition today I have become little miss Betty Crocker. I currently have a pot roast cooking in my slow cooker with potatoes and carrots YUM! Can't wait for that to be done for dinner. Then for lunch I made spaghetti with 2 cans of diced tomatoes, zuccini, olive oil, and a little bit of parmasean. No sauce!! It made a huge pot so looks like I'll be having my special Spaghetti (I like to call Spaghetti a'la Stacy) lol and my pot roast all week. I can't complain there!!! Anyone wanna come for dinner?

I am going to try and get back here more often as time permits. I know I only have a few followers which are probably now gone do to me being MIA for so long, but I hope to get more! Also as I start getting into my longer runs in my training I will post more blogs about them as well.

Have a great Sunday everyone!

Where have I been?

OMG I am sooo lost right now. I'm so not on track anymore. I eat all kinds of crap, haven't been to the gym in 3 weeks, and just feel like yuk! I need to get re-motivated but I just can't do it. I need help. I wish I had a workout buddy that just pushed me to go. Maybe I'll talk to my trainer and see what she thinks. I need to get my shoes fixed again cause these new ones I got are hurting me again. Any suggestions to get back on track please let me know!! I will listen to anything.

I'm Desperate!

Nerves Nerves Nerves

Ok so it's 3 days before my first race EVER and I am just a bundle full of nerves. My stomach has butterflies galore! I feel like someone punched me in the stomack. I know I'm ready, but since I only run on the treadmill to avoid my shin splints returning I'm not so confident about the 5 miles outside. If we were all running on treadmills hell yeah I'm there!! Unfortunately that's not how it is. I know this isn't a real "Race race" but to me it is. It's my first major run in my life. Never have I ever done this before!! But! In April I said I was going to do the Half in a year and I will and this is just a step in the process. I set out to do something and I will do it.

I just wish I could calm myself and know I will be ok running outside. I am running with my friend and her friend so with them I'm sure they will push me and motivate me. We shall see!!

First race week

Ok well I didn't realize it had a been almost a whole week since I've been here! How time flies when your busy. Well I am happy to report I got a ton of running and workouts in last week! I logged about 11 miles, which is pretty good for me!

I ran 5 miles this morning at a 12:03/mile pace! That is soooo good for me. I have been running between 13-14 this whole time. It's amazing what you can do when you push yourself. Just the fact I never thought I'd be able to run let alone 5 miles at a time. Although I better suck it up because I have 13.1 comming up in April haha. Yes little nervous about that one!

Ok well it's off to start my day and my week. I'm hoping this one is better then the last. Positive thoughts, positive thoughts. Have a wonderful day!

Starting Over

Ok well I have been MIA I guess. Alot has happened in the last week. My boyfriend broke up with me last Tuesday and of course the fuels my fire to get moving. Why? I have no idea. That is how I cope I guess. So Monday I started right back up 5am at the gym! I started it off right with a 3 mile run, then Cardio class at night and another mile run after that. Day 2 (today) gym at 5am once again and another 3 mile run. This time it was only suppose to be 2 miles, but last night I had a hot fudge sundae from McDonald's so I kept pushing myself further till I got to 3 miles to get rid of the sundae. Hey whatever helps right haha.

Sooo that brings us to now...I'm still a bit on the sad side from the whole boyfriend situation but that too shall pass. We will see how weighin goes this week! I'm hoping I can pick it back up and get right back into the swing of it all. Wish me luck!!

Talk you every soon!

New Week New Goals

Ok so this weekend...NOT so good. It started off with great intentions but somewhere along the way they got lost.

I feel like I set myself back so far! I ate horribly and continued that into today. Sometimes I feel like I have no will power. There were these little Ice cream cone cake things in the back room at work today with frosting on the top...Yeah I had THREE of them. Not one...not even two...but THREE! I can't sit an hold myself in regret over what I cannot change. However I'm having trouble with not doing it to begin with! I wasn't hungry, I had just eaten breakfast. Then I wasn't hungry again because I had just eaten lunch. It was just there and I thought about it and said hmm that would taste good. So I ate it. If anyone has any suggestions on how to NOT do that and how to keep yourself in check please do share with me!

However I did go to my aerobics class this evening. I also got my veggies on my lunch hour today, but they don't help when I didn't cut them up yet. So with that said I am going to go wash some dishes so I can maybe get a few things prepared. Hope everyone had a great day today and hope you have a great tomorrow!

Busting it out right today!

Ok so bowling last night went ok. I have a ton on my mind with my boyfriend (that is a whole different story right there), but kept focused. Finished with a 552 series. Not horrible.

This morning I had my aerobics class and was a little worried about my shoulder and how it was going to be. In general it wasn't all the bad the last few days, but how was that range of motion going to be . Well I was able to push it more then I did on Wednesday after I hurt it. Almost no pain at all. I am SOOO relieved about that. Shoulder injuries are nothing good, especially when its your bowling arm!! So I decided I was going to go all out this morning and after my hour and 45 min calls I decided I was going to go run 2 miles. I did it with flying colors. Started out about 4.7 mph .1mph up from what I normally start at. Then once I got to the 1 mile mark I up'd it .1 mph every 1/4 of a mile. So by the time I hit 2 miles I was at 5.1 mph. Which I normally don't get that high. Also the last 1/4 of a mile I added a .5 % incline. Needless to say the run felt awesome! 2 miles use to be huge to me. Now I feel like its nothing. I say to my friends hey I only ran 2 miles today, of course their response ONLY 2 miles??? Gotta love it!!

So now I am off to my moms house to finally see the season premier of The Biggest Loser. Since I bartend on Tuesdays I have to wait till the weekend to get to watch it. Let me tell you that really sucks! But hey she is making lunch and of course I'm bringing some laundry to do. Then off to work for about 9 hours tonight at the bar. Busy busy Saturday today!!

I have all intensions of getting to the gym in the morning tomorrow and maybe getting in about 5 miles or so. I think that will be good. Don't want to over due anything. But sometimes I have a tendancy to keep saying, ok just a little more, just a little more. So I guess we will find out after I'm done!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!! Enjoy these last few weeks of Summer weather. Do something great today!
