I have walked/run 33.56 miles this month. My goal is 50 and it’s going to be ah struggle to get there.
Honestly my body hurts. I thought I was ready for this but my knee isn’t. I have had to add *lots* of walking. Don’t misunderstand, I’m not quitting I am just adding more rest in between my "walk/run" days. I am not a natural runner. I am frustrated I can’t do more but the reality is I have to adjust to make sure I don’t injure myself.
Life has gotten hectic. Work is getting busier and busier. I worked Veteran’s Day and went in the following Saturday. I should be greatful I have a job and I do enjoy the overtime money but it’s exhausting. I am struggling to balance work, gym and J. Fortunately J is great about me having to work the occasional weekend and he is my number #1 cheerleader on the gym thing so I am a very lucky girl. But it's tough. I need to be in multipled places at once and it's a very hard balancing act. But I just bought a 125 gallons of oil and it hurt. So I definitely need to resusitate my savings account. And since mortgage rates are at an all time low again I am trying to figure out /save to buy a house sooner vs. later. Like in the spring. I can't afford to wait any longer. If the rates go up and I don't act I will be stupid. Lower rates means I can get more house for my money (err.. monthly payment)
I have fallen of track a little with my health plan. I haven't been logging food like I should and I haven't been eating as well as I could. Hurricane Sandy and Winter Storm Athena have really done a number on me the last few weeks. Fortunately I have been able to keep up the gym routine. I haven't really lost but I have maintained my weight which is a awesome!
This month has been about a lot of struggle. Greatful it's almost over and I have been able to continue to at least hit the gym even if I am not eating right. Exercise has always been the key for me to lose weight.
