Yeah yeah. I got what R had last week. In fact Jed and I both got it at the same time. Have you ever been sick at the exact same time as your husband/wife/partner? It is a little odd. It was nice having someone there, but at the same time I felt like I needed to help take care of him too.
Any ways, I am back at work today and to be honest I am not feeling the best. But I am not puking so that is a plus and I was able to take a shower and do all the things I have to do in the morning. So here I am wishing I was back in my comfy bed. Ugh.
You know what is annoying me the most about all of this? 1. I can't go to the gym 2. A freaking holiday is around the corner. I HAVE to get better. I know that I will, but I feel like I am putting pressure on myself to get back to 100% so I can have fun and enjoy the 4th of July as much as it is possible (remember I don't particularly like this holiday, but I do like having the day off!!) The gym is closed tomorrow so that will be 3 days in a row without the gym. That makes me a little sad, but it is okay.
Another reason I am grumpy about this stupid stomach bug is because I had HUGE plans for July. I had goals that I wanted to reach and one of those goals was NOT to sit on my couch feeling ill!! Okay I promise that is the last time I will mention being sick! But here are the goals I wrote down for July
Push up Challenge you can find HERE. I thought this might help me with those darn push-ups that I have to do in my Group Power class. I still HATE push ups so I thought this might help me hate them a little less. Maybe, maybe not. It is worth a try.
There is a 30 day shred by Jillian Michaels (Bigger Loser trainer) and I have heard people talking about it for a long time and I thought I could handle that along with my normal gym activity. It is around 10 bucks at Wal-mart. If you want to know more on the challenge that other bloggers are doing, then go HERE. I still need to take my before pics, I hope to get that done tonight.
Supposedly from the 5th of July to Labor day there are exactly 60 days, I have NOT done that math, I am trusting the other people on this. You can read more about that HERE. And they thought it was a good day to run a mile every day or if you are ambitious then you can skip a day, but run extra miles on other days. I thought this might encourage me to put my running shoes on and FREAKING RUN!
Running 6 miles without stopping is my own thing. I NEED to be able to run 8 miles without stopping by September because, well I will get to that later.
And I need to decided if I am running a half marathon this fall. I know that I probably can achieve this if I put my mind to it, but I can't really decide if I WANT to run a half marathon. But by the end of July I need to make up my freaking mind. I can't start training for a fall half marathon after August and feel comfortable about running in it.
Those are my July goals. I may have over done it, but I think this is possible. What do you think?? Do you want to join me in any of these or ALL of them?? I can send out reminders or I can post pics on instagram with a certain hashtag. You tell me!!! Just don't leave me hanging!!! Come on, I can't be the only crazy person out there, right?? I know what you are thinking, some of this we are a couple of days behind. That is okay. I will double up on my 30 day shred sometime during the weekend, you can TOTALLY do this still. Same with the push-up challenge. Also let me add that the 30 day shred only takes about 20 minutes a day!! Winner winner chicken dinner!
On Friday I promise I will talk about what I am worried about and why I need to be able to run 8 miles. Until then have a GREAT 4th of July and try not to get blown up.
