What's Next?

Isn't this such a great thought???? One of the trainers in my life, Mindy, shared this on the Facebook page for her gym and I immediately thought "THAT IS SO ME!" I feel like I've been chasing results for a few months, and I need to get back to what works for me -- focusing on health and letting the results come anyway.

Last week, I worked out 3 times and that's it. I did a strength workout on Tuesday and Friday. On Thursday, my friend Steph came for a run -- after 1 mile, we decided to just walk. We had lots of life stuff to talk about and it was easier to power walk and chat.

I'm not gonna lie - it felt great to workout so little last week!! I needed the break, both physically and mentally. I knew it the moment I crossed the finish line at Ocean City.

Yesterday, I did my first run since my half marathon. It was 85, humid, and the pollen count was really high. But I felt pretty good for my easy 3 miles!

I was just re-reading my "Hey Remember Me?" blog from 2 weeks ago and thought I'd update some progress for you! I'm sure you've all been on the edge of your seats waiting for updates from me - okay, maybe that's just my mom. (Hi Mom!)

1. Goal #1: Whole30 Round #2 - I started this on May 5th. I was PERFECT for the first 4.75 days. Then on Friday, I got in my first car accident. I am totally fine and I'll blog about it this week! But, suffice it to say, I needed (and I mean NEEDED) a margarita (or 2) that night!! Actually, I'm not being completely Whole30 anymore but I finally feel like "myself" when it comes to my eating again. "Myself" being the me that I've been for the past 3 years losing weight - making smart choices, eating clean, and just not eating junk. It's been a crazy past few months and I was feeling out of whack with everything - oh and I'll blog about all of that this week too!!

2. Goal #2: Blog Accountability - well, I'm writing this, aren't I? Oh, and I lost 2.4 pounds this week!

So, what's next? I have some races on my schedule that I'm really, really excited about!

Memorial Day 5k (a small local race)
Baltimore 10-miler (running this mostly because I love the course and it has a great premium!)
Double Creek 5k (another local race)
Savage Race
Save the River 10k (at my grandma's house in Northern New York)

I'm looking forward to some shorter races. My next half marathon is not until October in Baltimore - and I have my eyes on the prize for that - so I want to give myself time to do some other types of races this summer.

Coming this week on the blog -- car accident recap and deep thoughts about the past 3 months of my life...and possibly deep thoughts about the future. See you soon! :-)
