I'm baaaack!

Sunday, July 01, 2012

Wel, I have been gone a bit, but I'm ready to get back on track...I have been super busy, lots of traveling, lots of coaching , lots of eating and not enough working out. So, with that said....I am getting myself back on track. I start training for a marathon this week, so the weight needs to come off in order to make this 26.2 miles easier on my body. Plus, me ten lbs less is much better than me now.

So, one of my teams is starting a July challenge. my main goal is to lose 1% weight each week. I started out at 156.5 on Friday and then today I'm already down to 155... Thank you eating well! You know, it really is true...diet is almost all of it! (Thisis me being sarcastic to myself bc I have known this fact all too long...some reason I ignore it every 6 weeks or so.)

On another note, my grandmother passed away this mornin and this week will be a very hard one. Wednesday is also her 94th birthday. The funeral will be Thursday, but my brother has to go back to the Phillipines for work, otherwise he loses his job. he was just down visiting her two days ago though. I was able to make it a week ago and say my last goodbyes to her as well. It's tough tho bc you always think they will never stop being there. She was an amazing woman that fought for everything in her life...I'm just thankful that she is at peace and now home for eternity.

Well, training starts this week for my marathon, so I can funnel my energy and emotions into that. have a great week...I'll try to check in ASAP.
