I need to lose weight!!!
This is a common phrase that's heard around our house. Unfortunately, at the moment, its true.
I am not extremely fat. But I have gained a few pounds recently.
I am a huge believer in getting those pounds OFF before they become lots of pounds.
Lately I have been brainstorming how I am going to lose a little weight. I'd like to use some of the principles from the Paleo diet, but not ALL of them. I'd also like to eat "Clean." I definitely need to incorporate more veggies into my diet, THAT is clear.
I am also back to the gym full time. Its been a little while since I've been a 7-days-a-week work out-oholic. Now its time to get back into that groove! When I exercise more, I am a lot more happy!
Another goal is to spend more time walking. So far this week I have walked around Green Lake three times, and plan to walk again on Thursday. Its wonderfully relaxing exercise, and a great way to get outside when I normally would just curl up on the couch and drink cocoa. I love to start my day with a good (preferably sunny) walk!
An idea is churning around in my brain. That idea is RUN A MARATHON! I haven't committed or signed up for anything yet, but the idea is getting more and more inspiring. My half marathon is in a few more weeks, so I would just continue the training and should be ready within a couple of months. The problem is finding and PAYING for an expensive race, especially with all the late fees that incur when you sign up within a couple months of the race. The Rock&Roll marathon is $140! Most other races are cheaper, but they are destination races that would require some $$ to get to. The San Juan marathon is sounding pretty inviting...wouldn't mind hanging out in Friday Harbor!
Anyway, I know this post is long winded. I just wanted to get out a few thoughts. I hope to update here once a week about my health status and progress! Wish me luck!
