Fitness Journey

Happy Thursday, you have almost made it through the work week, just one more day.  I thought it was about time I updated my blog since April.

Race Update: I’ve signed up for the Disney Princess Half Marathon on February 25 of 2018 in Disney World.   This will be my second Disney Half and my 4th runDisney race.  I have set a goal to be race ready for this half.  In 2014 I ran my first Half Marathon, in Disney World.  I had lost a lot of weight and felt really good about myself but was not ready at all for this race.  My legs cramped up and at one point I was hyperventilating.   However I did push myself to finish the race and earn that beautiful medal.

Training: So I’ve started my training for the half by running a little each week and trying to increase my speed.  I am working on breathing correctly during runs so that I don’t give out so fast.  This has always been a challenge for me.  I have been working on my core through Beachbody workouts.  I am currently in the middle of a Beachbody challenge with the “CORE DE FORCE” program.  Next week I plan on getting back into the gym with a Kettle bell class and run club on Tuesdays.  Monday, Wednesday and Thursday I plan on running with my sister and niece at our local rail trail.


Nutrition: I have been trying to only drink water throughout the day, cutting out the diet sodas and teas.  As for my food I have been using the Beachbody portion control containers and following the food menu from the “SHIFT SHOP” program.  My afternoon snack at work has been Shakeology – Greenberry.  This gives me the pick me up I need in the afternoons at work.  


Fitness Goals:

Short Term:  My goal is to increase my speed and run more miles. 

Long Term: I would like to lose at least 30 pounds before February.   


Thank you for reading my fitness journey hope you will continue to keep coming back for updates.
