Hello everyone and welcome to week 15 in the quest of a few internet friends who are trying to get healthy! We want to motivate one another and help each other get on the right track by working out, eating right, and reaching a great state of mind in the process. Join us weekly as we share our personal journey’s and stats to show you all that if we can do it, so can you!
I am sick. I hate the weather, I hate colds. All I wanted to do was work out and I can’t because it feels like I am dying. I know, completely melodramatic but sickness sucks! Giving your body time to rest when you are ill is the best, so I am just drinking a lot of fluids and sleeping. I will say that yesterday when I did push myself to workout (bad move, but I was feeling much better in the morning yesterday than I was last night) I hit a PR on my squats at 125 lbs! Woot! I was so happy. But now to relax and get better! You can also tweet me if you ever want to chat @Sarindre. PS- I would count my loss as almost artificial since I was sick and did not even closely eat enough yesterday.

This weekend was an epic, epic, epic food fail. Epic. I’m talking epic here. We had some friends over Saturday night into the wee hours of Sunday morning, and healthy eating was not my priority. Fail. That’s all I have to say about that. Moving on.
I’m finally feeling 100% again after that flu thing, so my mileage has been good! It’s looking like I will hit my 700 miles by Wednesday morning, and if I keep with this pace I’ll get to 800 miles by the end of the month. I’m still on track for the year, my shoes are sorted out, and I’ve abandoned Friday Night Lights in favor of Parenthood. This saddens me, but I was getting really bored, and the storyline just meandered away on me. I do love Coach Taylor, but I need to stay invested in my show when running for as long as I do. I also took a brief segue into Amazon Prime’s Catastrophe, which is AMAZING.
Last week – 54 miles
WTD – 21.91 miles
MTD – 96.49 miles
YTD – 697.01 miles
Wow! I cannot believe what a different a week makes. I just drank some Iced Peach Green tea, and since I have not been drinking as much pop I can REALLY taste the sugar… it’s almost too much. I have been trying to drink more tea’s for caffeine, as coffee is one of my major IBS triggers. I need the caffeine – I cannot function without it! It’s a life saver. Anyway, I used to hate tea as it was never “sweet” enough for me, but now that I’m trying to limit my pop intake, the world of tea has been unleashed! There’s just something satisfying about making a cup of tea, smelling it, holding it in your hands. Yum! I can taste all of the flavors, something I’m very much so not used to, and it’s delightful. I lost two pounds, but I’m not celebrating yet. I have really slacked on working out at the gym, so I’ve been trying to make up by walking more. Yesterday I used the stairs three times more than normal and I’m feeling it today. I am trying not to beat myself up for that, because I’ve got to start somewhere, right? And this is my body reminding me why I need to make these changes.
Weight last week – 182.4
Weight now – 175
