This is your life. Are you who you want to be?
Recently I noticed that I’ve lost a lot of definition in my stomach from not eating that great towards the end of the school year. I also really slacked off in keeping up my running after the marathon. I took a lot more time off than I had wanted to. It has gotten to the point that after 3 miles I’m dead tired. This is incredibly frustrating to me when I think about how I ran 26.2 miles without stopping about 2 months ago.
I’m getting back on track, no excuses. I’m gonna keep track of my intake just to see how I’m doing with unnecessary sugar consumption and perhaps extra calories.
I know I don’t look terrible, but I feel out of shape and far away from my fitness level during and before training for the marathon.
I also have been feeling SO bloated lately, which could be a reason why I feel this way. I’m expecting my period any day now…
I would REALLY like to do 30 Day Shred. I have the DVD, I just need to find the time and the extra equipment.
We’ll see how I do in tracking my intake and keeping up with my workouts within the next couple weeks.
I am making these pictures a before, and I will see positive changes this summer!
