Beware! Increasing Activity Levels

I haven't had the laser yet, but I have been increasing my activity levels. I decided to simply start over with running. I went back to the beginning program in the Beginning Runner's Handbook. This gives me plan that is certainly not too ambitious, but gives me structure while not over doing it. On the off days from the program, I am running with my daughters which is hardly running at all. With warm ups and stretching, my tendon seems to be no worse, and at times feels better.

I have also returned to weight training. Over a year ago, I dropped weight training when I was training for the marathon. I simply couldn't do it all. I have tried many times to get back to it regularly, but didn't. I am on my second week now, and plan to keep going. This will go a long way to boosting my metabolism.

Now, I need to get my eating under control. I am fairly good during the day. After the kids go to bed, I seem to crazed sensation that I need to eat all sorts of bad foods. I just need to go a few weeks without eating after 7PM and I will be fine. I bought some sunflower seeds in the shells. This helped me before.

I hope everyone is doing well. If you read this, please comment, if just to say, "Hi."

Ten Months Later

Bah, I feel terrible that I have neglected this blog. The fact is that I had to let other priorities take precedent over this blog. However, I will give a little run down of the past 10 months.

July 4th, dad died.

Late July, my 2 oldest completed a kid's triathlon as well as showed and sold lambs in 4h

Mid-August, I completed another sprint Triathlon. I did well.

Mid-September, I completed and olympic distance Triathlon. This was a lot tougher than I thought it would be.

I ran a few races since then. Last one was in January.

Summer and fall were spent working on dad's house and selling it.

Now working on his second house. Hope to sell it quickly.

I signed up for another marathon, but Achilles' tendinitis has sidelined me on that endeavor. It's just not healing. I am going to get some laser treatment or something this week. Not quite sure what that is all about.

This winter, exercise slowed down quite a bit, healthy eating went down the tubes bit by bit, weight was gained which I am sure contributed to my injury.

I have made several efforts to get back on track. I need to review my blog and get back to the mindset of Living Fit being my #1 Job!

Thanks for all the inquiries and good wishes. I make no promises as to when I will post again.
