Philadelphia Marathon 2012!!!

Yes thats over a year away - but a girl has to plan :) I ran my first, and only, marathon in Virginia Beach 3 weeks preggo. Now Im 16 weeks pregnant - wow time flies - and while Im not really running, I KNOW that I will need/want that release running gives me and what better to get back into it then to have a goal. So this December I will give birth to my beautiful baby and 6-8 weeks later I will go into training mode :) I will practically be a newbie by then so will definately need the time for training. And along the way I will find some 10k's and half marathons for training but the big goal will be Marathon number 2... in Philadelphia... November 2012!!!

This morning the alarm went off for work and Im sitting in bed struggling to remember why I set the alarm... my brain is fried! Thank goodness after today I have a 4 day weekend. Tons to do during the four day weekend but still off :)

Yesterday I packed my breakfast, lunch and dinner at work. It was awesome. I forced myself not to go get anything to add. Didnt spend a penny and ate pretty healthy. All my food is packed and ready to go for today aswell.

Hoping for a speedy day. The doc I work with this week, while I like him, I dont particularly care for working with him - he makes me feel stupid and second guess every decision I make. I know he is just trying to teach and means well but he stresses me out and I dont have any fun while Im there. Couple that with it being pretty busy lately and we have a student... its exhausting. I was SOOOO tired yesterday when I got home ... barely made it through "so you think you can dance"... love that show!

Im also super sore - my butt and legs, ouch!

So during my four day weekend Im aiming for the gym 3 times. I also plan to move the playroom... again, exhausting.

Hope everyone is having a good week.

A busy awesome day!

Today was a great day!

First, before I went to bed last night I couldnt stop thinking about wanting to go for a jog. I dreamt about running. So when I got up this morning I packed up G and the dog and did a lite 1 mile run. Yes its nothing like what I was doing but hell I havent ran in weeks and Im 16 weeks preggo. I FELT AWESOME! I finished that awesome feeling up with some weight training and squats. 2 bottles of water then my morning coffee :)

Had a midwife appointment today - took Gavin and hubby with me so they could hear the heart beat. G was so excited! Granted he thought the baby was coming out ... he doesnt 100% get "it". Got my slip for the biggoo ultrasound - wont find out the sex until July 18th... I SO SO SO SO want to know NOW but I will be patient.

Then got some serious cleaning/organizing done. Cleaned/scrubbed/mopped both my and little mans bathrooms. The the organization started. So before the baby comes this is what all needs to happen - the living room in the basement needs to be rearranged, the office moved into the spare bedroom, the toy room moved into the basement where the office was, the toy room repainted and turned into Gs bedroom, g's room repainted and turned into a babies room... so ALOT. Well today we took the first steps. The office is officially in the spare bedroom. We swapped living room tv's and rearranged down stairs furniture - and upstairs too for that matter. My next break off from work Im moving the playroom downstairs. Then in Aug I have a week off so that will be a paint and move Gs room week with the goal to start babys room by Oct.  Right on plan!

Then finished the day with little mans tai kwon do class, grilling steaks and then after getting G to bed - a nice long walk with my dog.

Now Im off to rest - work tomorrow...

lets try this again...

I know my last post was several weeks ago. And yes I know I said then that IM BACK... and guess what, I wasnt. I couldnt get my mind into it. I just was in a bad spot and was going deeper and deeper. I didnt think I had anything to write that anyone would want to read.

THEN.. I remembered, I dont do this blog for others to read. Yes I love the comments, love to be part of that healthy blog group but that isnt why I started this. I started this for me and only for me. To have somewhere to put my thughts into words. Yet once others started reading it then I started changing what I posted - wanting to only post things that were uplifting, only of being "good" and when I wasnt and had nothing but bad things to post felt horrible and eventually quit. Well the bad days are the reasons I made this blog to begin with. Everyone has down time. I just had alot of them.

So here I am - starting over. I almost scrapped this one all together and started over but frankly thats just too much work.

Im 15 weeks preggo now. I feel preggo. I look preggo. And Im having massive girl vibes :)

My eating hasnt been the best but Im striving to work on that. I also havent worked out in 2 weeks or so - we went to disney and then had a crazy schedule with out of state house guest. So it was alittle crazy.  Some goals this week.

1. POST ... Im coming back, promise!

2. NO MORE EATING OUT at work... I am putting not healthy not even tastey food in my body and Im spending a CRAP load of money over the course of the week.  Lately my work food has gone like this. 6am eat breakfast at home (cereal or english muffin with pb), 9am go down and get another breakfast from the cafeteria ( pancakes, waffle or something of that sort), noon go back down and get lunch (sandwich, soup, chips, cookies), 4pm get a snack of some sort of cake or candy, 6pm go down and get dinner (typically something fried)... like I said not healthy, not tasty and a waste of money! So this week I work twice - Wed and Thur. Im packing cherios and fruit for breakfast, lunch and dinner from home and healthy snacks. NO BUYING!

3. Get to the gym damn it!

I miss me... I will find me again!
