Alrighty!  I took a week off, sick kiddos, sick hubby, sore foot.  I did 3 - 4 walks with the kids, nothing crazy.  Well Sunday came this week, and I ran, and I ran far, and I ran fast.  Monday came, I ran far and slow, Tuesday came and I walked fast and far, Wednesday I ran at a decent pace pushing 70lbs of stroller and kid.  I got a Nike + Sensor, but haven't figured out how to log my runs, the Nike website sort of sucks.

I felt amazing, why do I not do this stuff.  While I was at Jiu Jitsu sitting in the back with my kids having temper tantrum, I did an ab workout with the Medicine Ball.  Holy Moly my abs need some work, seriously work a lot of it, now, and always.

Clean eating this week, I have planned and worked on everything I'm eating this week.  It feels so much better to do that.  Why I don't continually do it, I will never figure out.

Still running a mud run on September 10, still planning on the the 1/2 marathon in January.  I'm a running mom and I don't think you can stop me.

I loved my runs this week, they take me away from the autism, they take me away from the financial strains, they make me plan good healthy meals for myself and family,  they make me want to be a better mom.  I feel like I gain some mental strength when I'm out on the road running. I took my friend Lisa's advice and when I run I got to "Lotto Land", and I play what would I do if I won the Lotto, wow I have awesome plans so we better win soon. Even though things are shitty right now and I may run at a snails pace some days I feel so much better after I finish, than not going at all.

Well I guess it's all about making progress and in my fitness and health I'm making the progress.  I hit the 80 lb. weight loss mark this week, and nothing is stopping me now.

  1. Congrats on hitting 80lb's that's INSANE!!!! So motivated! I totally agree when I'm running it takes me away too, and that's why we keep doing it, because even though some of those runs SUCK it still helps me be a better mom and person. My brother in law plays the lotto game too, I'm going to try it on my long run this week!!
