Still Not Where I Want To Be

While I did do fairly well eating and exercise wise this weekend, I did not meet my standards. So I am joining Dawne in her "Pull a Hard 10". Essentially, I am gonna go back to food snobbery, only to an extreme, and though I have been rock solid in my running lately, I have not been weight training. I am going to go ten days straight with adding weight training on the days I run too. Not necessarily a hard core holy crap weight training session, but hit two exercises, three sets, ten reps a day. I also think I am going to just skip my after supper snack altogether, even the healthy snacks I used to always consume. That seems to be a trap for me, so I am going to change that habit. So I am sure I am Dawne won't mind if anybody else wants to jump in on this. Let me know if you plan on doing it and I will try extra hard to keep up with your blog the next 10 days and encourage you!

I totally forgot to get a picture of my Texas Heavenly Hills this weekend! I had one hell of a run Saturday morning and it is getting kinda scary that my legs know when I have gone a mile and a half and need to turn around and head back! I nailed the distance without ever driving it first. I think the thing I took out of that run is the fact that I am so much stronger now than I used to be. Those hills are some serious bad ass hills and I never once faltered jogging them. I won't lie and say I didn't get tired, especially my abs, but I never broke stride and never once walked or even half jogged the whole time. I kept stride and I powered through it. Now that being said, I am paying for it now!

I have also got the outside running bug now. It is 45 degrees this morning but I can't stand the idea of getting on the treadmill this morning, so I am bundling up and heading out this morning to get my 2.5 miles around the block. And like I said, I am then going to hit the weights for a weight workout too. I think biceps need some working today... yeah now that I can see them, I need to make them look a little bigger.... haha. Ya'll have a great day, and keep me in your thoughts as I keep on trying to get back on good track. thanks for your support!

  2. You are positively awesome Shane! Think about all of the things you're doing now that you weren't doing the first day you wrote your blog.

    Your wishes have become your reality through hard work, and you're stepping it up again. You are all over this Shane! Go for it!
