I Got Your Back Boy(s)...:):)

I cannot get enough of T.I.'s new song "Got your back"...it makes me think of my three boys who I love more than anything and would protect with my life...Wilbur, Barney and Winston, LOL :):) (Yes I practically treat them like they are my children) My picture is from when I started to get things ready for NYC and Winston would not leave the spare room where I got the big suitcase out. He sat there watching me and then proceeded to fall asleep on my shoes, maybe thinking if he slept on them he could go with mommy! :) awwww my babies..I'm going to miss them so much when I'm gone and I really really wish I could bring them with me...I'm enjoying my time with them until I leave in a little over a week, and I'll just have to tell them over and over again "I'll be back baby"...they know what that means, haha :)

Anyway, training has been going well. Last week I hit 50 miles and this week I'll get to 55. My patience and my decision to really take my mileage up gradually since coming back from my time off has been a very smart decision. It keeps me excited for training every day (although nervous for workouts sometimes!). It also seems like it's helped my foot not flare up really bad. Today I didn't run and just did my core/strength routine. It felt nice to sleep in a little bit and not wake up at 5! Tomorrow I'm doing my typical run + 10x300 at the track afterward. Every week my times get a little faster and I feel more comfortable and controlled hitting around 56 for each one.

My eating/nutrition has gotten so much better the past few days and I really cracked down after I got back from Cabo. I've been eating very healthy and cutting back the volume that I eat as well. So far my weight has not dropped so I'm hoping it starts to come off soon! For years I have not weighed myself regularly, so it gets annoying and stressful to get so uptight about a dumb number on a scale. I have to stop freaking out a lot or worrying so much because often when you want something so bad and stress too much, the opposite happens...you don't get what you want...We'll see how it continues to go.

Quote for today: "The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don’t define them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them" -Denis Watley

  1. Good job on eating better. I keep saying "today I'll eat better" and then I don't. I need to focus on it.

    You're statement "you don't get want you want" makes me think of the law of attraction where you get what you don't want because the "don't" isn't heard. So I don't want to get sick, becomes I want to get sick. Sounds backwards but it helps me to try and rephrase what I think and say and write to something more positive so I can attract what I do want. I do want to eat better (as long as it contains chocolate) :)
