39 Days....

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

That is how long I took as a little vacation from my "healthy" life and had a big old slip downward.....but today is day 1 of moving forward...in a small way.

Not sure why I fell off the wagon...can't put my finger on it - although I really do believe it has something to do with my brother kept pushing me about a 10K that is this Sunday (it is not possible for me to run it schedule wise - regardless of whether I kept running or not ) - but he kept pushing me - so I stopped.....just like that - it's easy to say no when you are out of shape. That could be a reason - although not a conscious one.

Maybe it's the 10K I am signed up for....but still not conscious thought.

I have been doing other things...reading, baking (big problem), helping out at kids school, helping with after school activities, and scrapbooking....so I have not been just sitting around -but I have not been exercising.

It's getting close to school being out (38 days left for the kiddos) and one of their favorite activities is Mountain biking at a place about 20 minutes from here. I can't bike well enough to ride with them - so I run with them - but if I don't get back at it - I won't be able to do it....those runs are usually 5-7 miles long....so I gottat get back into the saddle again.

No excuses for the past - although I now have to shed about 6 pounds that I didn't own before I took my vacation...the last two weeks it's all caught up to me.... but that's ok too - I have grabbed hold before I let it get out of control.

I am also sorry to those of you who feel like I disappeared...I didn't - I've been here - poking around - but just like in normal life - with normal friends - other things got in the way....I'm here....and taking it all in.

    I've missed you but just figured life got busy as it usually does. I'm jealous of your scrapbooking time. I would love to hibernate and cut/glue/decorate pages! I swear, life will calm down one of these days.

    I'm glad to hear that you are back in the process of taking care of yourself. Those run/biking excursions sounds tough.

    I hope you are having a great day!
