Where Have I Been?

Where have I been? I have been going crazy!
I threw my back out a couple months ago. UGH. So I couldn’t work out. I tried, it just didn’t work.
So now today I THINK I’m okay. I have been doing fairly well on the eating part. Except last week and over this past weekend. During the day I did great. But fell apart at dinners. This past weekend we headed up to a friend’s cabin. I drank some beer, ate snacks, neglected my water intake, and had just a little walking for exercise. And by bad I don’t mean I ate crap all day and night. I had healthy dinners so it wasn’t all bad.
I started a new healthy lifestyle Facebook page if anyone wants to check it out and give me some tips, tricks, pointers, recipes, etc.. It is called It’s Not a Diet, it’s a Healthy Lifestyle. I also work full time and am a single mom to a teenaged girl who is very busy. I am trying to get my part-time photography business going, and have a Facebook page for that as well. Yikes, I need to slow down a bit. No excuses, I know. But I have to slow down and check in with Spark once in a while and haven’t. I know this plateau that I’m at will head in the right direction if I focus on me, myself and I for a while and that is exactly what I intend to do.
I signed up for the Lazy Man Triathlon at my local Y so I have until July 27 to swim 2.5 miles, cycle 112 miles and run/walk 26.5 miles. Classes count toward this goal, so it is a bit easier. My first cycling class is tonight. I am afraid of a sore butt! But I am hoping this will motivate me and that my back will hold o ut.
So my goal this week is to log my fitness minutes, check in on my Spark peeps every so often, work out every day at the Y, drink my necessary water and of course eat and live the healthy lifestyle that I preach!
