quick update

I will post more later but have a house full right now so have to make this quick - I feel AWESOME!

About 9 days ago I rejoined the CM biggest loser contest, started counting points again, drinking my water, taking my vitamins and added a b complex vitamin to the mix... I have energy, I have a stupid smile on my face. I feel awesome!

I have also lost 4.5 lbs !

I will post way more later - need to get back into the running way of things - hopefully later today I will get outside for a run.

January work out plan

So here is my plan for January for working out - I figure I need to ease back into things but I also need to make myself accountable and have a plan in place. The last week of Jan I will be adding a swim aerobics type class once a week but will include that into February's plan, not Januarys.

I want to get back into weight training but need to ease myself so I have decided to attempt the 100 situp/pushup and squat plan.

I will only do these as my weight training for this month and next month will add to it. I will be doing all three of these three times a week.

I will run 3 days a week

On days I am not running I will alternate doing a wii workout and doing a video.

Here is my plan

Sunday - RUN
Monday - pushup/situp/squat challange and a wii workout
Tuesday - RUN
Wednesday - Video
Thursday - pushup/situp/squat challange and RUN
Friday - wii workout
Saturday - pushup/situp/squat challange and either Video or Day off

Happy New Year...

Yes its the second and not the first but today is the day it feels like a New Year to me... yesterday just didnt have that feel for me.

Today I have sat down and thought about the last year - its ups and its downs.

Ups- Graduating with my masters, watching Gavin grow into this crazy amazing three year old, my family and amazing friends.

Downs - missing my family and friends so much during the school process. Allowing myself to feel like Im not a good person, not worth it, ect.

There are many many more ups. I asked Eric what he wanted for the new year and he said for a better year than last year (2009) because the year sucked. I told him I completely disagreed. Yes, we had a very busy hectic year. Yes, we didnt get to spend near as much time with each other and had NO alone or private time. Yes, we had no independant alone time either. BUT - we have each other, we have an amazing relationship/marriage, we have an amazing son, we are blessed to have good jobs - a sound house - and all the little things we need to survive. We have lost NO family members this year. All in all it was a good year, it could have been much much worse.

But we are looking forward to the new year. I am looking forward to starting a new job and growing in my role as nurse practitioner (scared shitless too but still!). I am looking forward to watching my son grow into the next year and become an amazing 4 year old. I am looking forward to time for myself - to make myself a better person, to grow as a person. I am looking forward to allowing eric to have some time to himself as well - to do things he wants... he has been such an amazing husband this past year and has done NOTHING for himself and he deserves so much!

So things Im starting at the beginning of the year.
1. an aquatic hard core aerobics class every tuesday night starting at the end of the month - I am so excited about this... thanks Racheal for suggesting it and braving it with me!
2. getting back into running - im psyched about my new Nike+ running gear!
3. Spending much more quality time with my family and friends.

Goals for 2010
1. Pass my boards and start my new job!
2. Monthly date night with my husband
3. Start monthly family game and movie night
4. Run a 5K + 10K this spring and fall

where did I go???

Seriously where did I go? I posted only once in the past month and it was saying "Im back"... yea right, I was sooooo not back.

Yesterday I started keeping a food diary again. I weighed myself and I was the highest I have been since I started this blog. I had Eric take my measurements - I dont have them next to me to post but I will later. They were SCARY. I was in the 40's for each area... I am HUGE.
