Sometimes I don’t want people to walk in on me while I’m taking a bath because I’m blowing bubbles 🙂

Well I guess today was a break even sort of day. Didn’t get anymore exercise in after my walk…but I stayed decent on my intake. Got about 80% of my list done. Better than 50/50 – so I’ll take it. See you all tomorrow.

So here is my TO DO list for today:

  • Coffee
  • Feed goats and chickens</li>
  • Burn 1,000 exercise calories (So far 150 from a walk this morning)
  • Eat 1,200 calories
  • Prepare FOCUS report 1 of 4 due by next Thursday
  • Verify my CE status for my license renewal
  • Prepare minutes and agenda for PTC meeting tomorrow (ugh, I can’t believe I volunteered for this)
  • At least one load of never-ending laundry( well at least partial done)
  • Pick up kids from school – luckily no activities tonight!
  • Figure out dinner for the fam

A’ight – time to get cracking.

Edit: Add review Trust document to the list. argh

I wore an old sports bra yesterday for my 8 mile run that wasn’t very forgiving – so major chaffing 😦

I was going to post a picture of it but quickly realized I couldn’t do it without getting some boobage in the shot.

Since my blog pop’s up when people google fat assed chicks, think I’ll pass on the gratuitous boob shots.

Ugh, I need Botox.

Been feeling the need to come back here – Facebook just ain’t  doing it for me.

I’m doing the Tinkerbell Half Marathon  in 12 days…and I feel only half prepared. I wish I could keep on a consistent schedule with my  running. I always seem to half-ass my training.  But today is a new day and I’m committing myself to improve my running and MY health…

Here is what I want to do:

  • Do weekly 1 mile speed runs to gauge my speed and monthly 5k’s.  My goal is to get in the 8 min mile range, which I think I can do if I stay consistent…and lose a few pounds 😦  Currently I’m in the 11 – 12 minute range I think, but I tend to run longer mileage and focus on pacing for that.  I will run a base mile on Thursday.
  • Actually have a body that looks like I run!  Which means I probably need to lose about 30 pounds.  I am starting with a weight loss challenge at my gym on Saturday which is exciting!  I LOVE me some competition.  I did this last year too and lost 25 pounds which put me in first place percentage wise – so I won!  Yay!  But unfortunately I’ve gained back about 15 of that.  Guess I didn’t stop celebrating my win – so here I am 9 months later needing to get back at it again.
  • Get my life more organized!  I am sure so many people have this same issue as me.  I work from home, have three kids, and between trying to manage the home/work/kids I just get crazy!  I think all the lines get mumbled too since I don’t have set work hours that I have to report to work…I need a better schedule/checklist system.

Today’s summary:

Exercise – 4 mile hilly walk followed by an 8 mile run (average pace: pretty damn slow)

Consumed: 1195 calories  Burned: 3,080  Net Burn: -1885

ll be back with more tomorrow
