50 miles in April

It's been a while....yeah, like a whole month...

Things kinda went down hill after my 5K.  Rather than wanting to accomplish more and keep going, I gave up.  I went to the gym a couple times, but I certainly haven't held myself accountable.  

Anyway, I'm back in the game today.  I have some new motivation with a friend's wedding coming up and the mini-dress that I'm wearing.  (Seriously, my husband saw it and said "where's the rest of that dress?")    It's pretty and looks good on, but I could stand to lose about 15 more lbs.  The wedding is in 6 weeks. 

I'm also starting a NEW JOB on Monday.  I'm really ready for a fresh start professionally.  The last month at my current job hasn't really helped the fitness situation.  It's made me majorly moody, tired and depressed.  That's a totally different ball game...

With a new job comes the need for new clothes.  I've really been into LOFT lately.  The clothes are very high quality and they have sales that make them affordable.  My problem is the pants, they only carry up to 14 in the store and I DO NOT order things online that I haven't tried on.  Too much anxiety there....and I hate paying for shipping.

In order to get into size 14 LOFT pants (which are really like a 16 with their "vanity sizing"   ) and a mini-dress and look good in them, I've decided to make a few fitness goals. 

  1. I'm going to run 50 miles in April.  This may not seem like a lot for some of you other runners, but since I ran 3.1 in March, I think its a pretty good goal.  That breaks down to about 12.5 miles a week.  I think I can to that.  If I run all 50 miles, I'll reward myself with $50 to buy something new.
  2. I'm going to begin tracking my food again.  Starting today.  I've really lost control in that area and I think the only way to do it is to log my calories.
  3. Since my new work schedule is 8 to 4:30, I'm going to be able to go to body pump TWICE a week.  I've been going once a week and I definitely feel the benefits the next day, but I think this is the push I need to get into ONEderland.
This mornings weigh in: 

I'm SO close!!!


I'm pretty happy with this considering the lack of self control I've had over the last month...

 With a little (No, A LOT) of self control, I think know I can do it.

Happy Running!
