Welcome to Fitness and Health Friday! It’s been a while since we’ve had an edition of Fitness and Health Friday, yet I’m happy to report that there has been a lot going on in the fitness and health department around here! I’m so excited to share!
I’m going to run the Carlsbad Half Marathon in January! Yay! I haven’t run a half marathon in a long, long while, however, I’ll be doing it this January! It has been a challenge to get back into shape—slow and steady wins the race! I’ve been “training” since the beginning of 2015, starting with the Couch to 5k program from January 2015-June 2015. That training came to an abrupt stop in June, when we put our house up for sale, Allison got out of school for the summer, and we moved. When she went back to school in September, she joined the running club at her school and we’ve both been running twice a week with the running club. It has been a great way to bond and we’ve both enjoyed it so very much!
My eating habits have been absolutely terrible, I’m sorry to report. It has been so busy with Allie Kat’s swim team, homework, running club, and everything social, that I’ve got out of the good habits of preparing healthy meals. I’ve noticed that the 10 pounds I lost when we went through the move is slowly, but surely creeping back on. Wah. Wah. Wah. I know that my eating habits need to change and that they are the whole key to my health. I’ve made a solid commitment to getting my diet on track, so all the exercise I’m doing can really make a difference.
This leads me to the next piece of the puzzle that has me so very excited! I’ve joined Lindora Weight Loss Program. For the next 10 weeks, I’m going to be working with Lindora to lose weight, learn how to eat right, and hopefully, improve my overall health. I start on Wednesday and I’m counting down the days until I start! I can’t wait to start seeing my body change! Yesterday, I had my consultation, where they took measurements and went over the program basics. I was so disappointed with my measurements, my weight, and my eating habits. I’m over it now, though! I’m excited to see some changes happen and I’m excited to work with the people at Lindora. I have to check in at the clinic once a day, weigh in, and let them know how my program is going. I’ve got a lot of homework to do, like reading the Lean for Life book that is the companion to the program. It all gives me hope and I can’t wait to share my journey with you, Dear Readers!
What is good with you, friends? How is your Fitness and Health Friday? Do you have any good news to share? What have you been doing lately? Any races you’ve completed? I’d love to hear about your journey!
