Last week I mentioned I was going to be finishing up my 100 miles in February, I am happy to say I finished great and had a blast. Here is my full post here. I finished on a Tuesday and had planned to pull out a few more miles to go beyond the goal, but I experienced something every mom goes through, Obstacles.
A few things I want to mention first, is the energy and positive emotions I experienced during this month. I felt like my body was tired and sore at times, but each week I grew stronger. I found those days that I scheduled my exercise and told friends, I stuck to it. My emotions where more balanced too. I had a happy feeling every time I went running and I had a sense of accomplishment with every number that added up.
After the race was completed, I hit a few road blocks. Wednesday I had my normal schedule of volunteering and then the kids’ activities. Wednesdays are very busy and always have that as an off day. Thursday is another big day for running, but my schedule was changed when family came into town earlier than planned. Then Friday I had a ton of work to help my husband on, that I had not scheduled, but was needed. Saturday came and went and never got to go for another run. So I worked out only one day this week. Weeks like this happen, but what I wanted to show was how we get trapped in responsibilities. If I had a goal that needed meet I would have told my family, I needed to do this, I would have found the time to go, or I would have chosen a DVD workout to at least stay active. So what happen? I believe I felt comfortable and my goal was obtained so I did not stay true to the run. Every day I had a deep desire to go running, even effect emotional from lack of activity, but the fire had been blown out. I knew I was planning another 100 in March so I felt I had time to wait and catch-up. This is where many fall off their program or diet, comfort and lack of fire.
While I made the same mistake many moms have made before I am happy to say I am back on my schedule.
Sunday: Run 6 miles (1 hour and 10 minutes )

If you are just starting, remember to take our pictures front, side, and back. I could not believe the changes I saw in my own pictures from the beginning of the month. Sometimes the scale and measurements don't show what pictures can!
