I’ve decided I need to start holding myself accountable regarding my fitness goals.  I then realized that in order to do so, I must determine what my fitness goals actually are.  So this is what I have come up with:

  • Run half marathon in October.
  • Lose 5 lbs.
  • Tone my body. Particularly the abs and arms.

I’m feeling pretty positive about it.  I’m going to use this blog to record my progress.  I signed up for the Go St. Louis half marathon in October. I ran 2.5 miles on Monday and I’m going to training today.  I plan on going running again tomorrow after work.  It sucks because sometimes it feels pointless to do anything right now, since I know I’ll be too sick to do anything next week, and then I cannot exercise for 4 weeks after my exchange surgery.  However, I know that is a bad attitude, and I intend to do as much as I can up to May 14th.  Then I will resume my activities after the 4 weeks have passed.  I think I will go ahead and sign up for the Komen 5k, which is 4 ½ weeks after my surgery.  If my surgeon says I can run it, then great.  If not, I will walk it. 

I love having something to work on. 

October is going to be a great month.  I’m in a good friend’s wedding the first weekend.  I’m running the half-marathon the weekend after.  At some point that month, I’m supposed to be going to Hawaii.  Oh and let’s not forget Halloween, which is my favorite holiday.
