Trying my best to get back in track

So there are a few new updates. One of them being that I signed up for this yesterday

This means I need to get busy! Things just got real!

With that said I did this yesterday

I ran 3 miles yesterday on the treadmill. I HATE the treadmill, but I also can't run in this heat. So the treadmill it was. It was not fun and I had to push myself the whole time, but I got that sucker done.

This is the schedule I am following to get ready for my half marathon.

I looked at this yesterday and I think I should have some time to even get to 11 or 12 miles before the race in Novemeber. But to be honest I CAN NOT run 11 or 12 miles on a treadmill. Ugh. So as soon as this heat goes away I am running outside again. I tried to get up early this morning to run my 2 miles, but it didn't happen. I am having a hard time going to bed at a decent time and then last night was a very restless sleep. I hate when that happens, it makes for a long day the next day.

I am also eating better. I am still having my oatmeal for breakfast, but for lunch yesterday I had my favorite lunch, taco salad with out the chips.

So I am very slowly getting back on track. I think I am going to start using My Fitness Pal app to keep track of my meals. Anyone else using this?

So things are going good, but I made some cookies yesterday for R and Jed, but I think I have had more than they have. Ugh, so one step forward, 5 cookies backwards. Lol oh well. New day and the cookies are put away. So let's hope I can keep my hand out of the cookie jar!

Have a good week and I will be back on Friday! Oh I can't leave you without a pic of my favorite little guy! We sure are staying busy!!

  1. Ha, I posted about using MFP again earlier this week too! I've got to get my eating back on track now that my workouts are more intense.
    Not training for a half or a Mudder (I do have a Dirty Girl in December though) but I'm just working on increasing endurance.

    Feel free to find me on MFP: Aprilelayne
