I am Great at Making Excuses.

My last post was in May. I felt on top of the world with my running and diet. Two weeks later I had the best run of my life. It was a Saturday morning training run and when I finished I was pumping my arms in celebration in the driveway. When I opened the door, Tommy commented that it must have been a great run. I showered and went to meet my Mom and Grandmom for our weekly (when I didn't have a race) coffee date. When I stood for us to leave I felt a twinge in my knee. The next day I was hobbling and the next week I was doing PT. The 10miler that I had been training for was OUT. And so I stopped exercising and started eating. Summer work stress began and I ate more. When I was released to run again, I went out once but it was JULY in ALABAMA and it was HOT. So I ate some more. When my summer stress ended I thought I could get back into a routine, but guess what...there was some other excuse (I don't even remember what it was at this point.) Two weeks ago I started giving myself daily goals and meeting them! Then last week I ended up in the ER with a kidney stone and guess what... I ate (even though I was nauseous!)

But I am DONE! I am going to stop making excuses and JUST DO IT ALREADY!

Let's be honest, I probably won't blog a ton (even though I read...always), but I will be here twice a week! And if you don't see me, give me a holler because I am probably somewhere making an excuse!

This week my goals are...
Drink one gallon of water Mon-Fri
Drink at least 64oz of water Sat & Sun
Exercise for at least 30 mins 3 days
Log food at least 4 days
Do something for myself

I will be back on Friday with a WI and then next Monday with an update on how these goals went this week and new goals for next week.

I am struggling guys and need some support!
