Falling Behind

First thing is first. I thought that I should start with an apology.  I am sorry that I have not been posting recently.  I have let my life take the wheel and have been putting things that I find important and motivating on the back burner.  This is not to say that I am off track or falling behind on my journey.  Actually it is the exact opposite.  I have let my focus drift and the hard work and goals have been falling into place.

Lets start with my results.  Last weeks weigh in I lost a whopping 6.7 pounds!  I was definitely not expecting that.  I know that I was retaining water from my 5K (I will get back to that), I didn’t eat 100% on my diet, and I was sore as I have ever been!  I went in expecting to see a gain or even a steady number…never expected a loss and even one that large.

Second of all…I FINISHED A 5K!!!!!!!  That’s right…. finished!!! 3 goals….3 completed….3beaten!!  Goal 1 was to finish. No matter what cross that line.  I did.  Number 2 not finish last…. finished second last.  And Goal 3, finish with a time of 40 minutes. I finished in 40.02 minutes and felt great…. just kidding.  It was one of the hardest things I have done in a long time and did not expect it to be as it was.  Did I mention that I didn’t train (will never do that again).  I even cried at one point while running (just being completely honest).

I am going to make a new goal. I am sure that I have written that line in every single post so far on this blog.  But they keep me going and I like that challenges.  I am going to try my darndest to post two blogs a week; one similar to this with my results and updates for the week and one that touches on a not topic of the week.  They will usually have to do with the journey that I am on and will be educational and hopefully inspiring.  I am opening up my comments for suggestions of topics that you would like to read about.  Please please please send me some ideas.  This will both challenge me and allow me to write which is a passion of mine.

I hope that everyone has a great week and look forward to hearing your comments and ideas!
