I will be doing the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer 5k run/walk on May 16. I have received all of my information and I am all set to go! Now I am preparing for it by doing more cardio. I have not been the best at being consistent with working out but my main focus is to work on my endurance.
While a 5k might not seem like much to most, it is a big deal for someone who does not run, is overweight and battles muscle fatigue. I am working to be able to push past those obstacles and do my run/walk in a decent time. I do not plan on running the whole thing, but I do want to run some of it. This will be the first of many more to come and your girl is ready to knock this one out the park.
If you would like to donate to the race you can do it here.

The first thing is I signed up for a Dietbet and FAILED miserably. I thought signing up for it would give me the push I needed to go harder and at first it did. In the beginning I was doing great, but life got the best of me and I slacked off and never reached my goal which meant I lost the $25 bet I put in. Was I mad about losing $25....Yes. Did I put in the work to get my money back......NOPE.

A big struggle for me is saying no to the kids snacks and fast food I let them have. When I find that I am binge eating or having major caving its from the kids food in front of me. Not to mention how much of a fight it is to get the kids to eat baked foods and vegetables. It's no one's fault but my own. They are not old enough to buy their own food, cook, or even make selections so why would I get upset when they don't want green beans instead of fries.

To be honest it is just easier to reach for that tasty piece of food I crave so much or binge on snacks. It's easier to not think about getting enough water or drink of any sort in. It is just easier to sit on the couch all day and relax than to push yourself while working out. But why do I do it when it's not what I want. I want to be in a position where I'm not tempted by foods and can say no. I want to be able to get up at anytime and get in a great workout without hating it. Soooo what the hell am I complaining about.

~ I did not complete the Whole30 challenge. I think that is part of what created my plateau in the first place. I strayed away from what was working for me food wise. I was pretty balanced with my food choices and although Whole30 isn't a bad choice it just shifted things for me. I think it may have threw me off of my balanced plan.

So on Friday I started to up my calories and didn't really pay attention to the calorie amount. That might have been my first no no]. I didn't go crazy and eat bad foods but it did lead to a binge day. Friday and Saturday was ok. I actually started to get a little sick by eating high calorie foods like pizza. Now did I have to eat pizza??? No! I chose to eat pizza because if I was going to up my calories why not treat myself with higher calorie foods. After Saturday I couldn't take it anymore and started to eat clean again on Sunday. It didn't last long though.
