Hello..... April!


It's been FOREVER since a blog post! Not a whole lot of time to blog, even though it would probably do me good to get some of the crazy thoughts out. Ha!

I'm training for a Full Marathon. Race date will be in the fall.
I'm trying to lose the weight I gained during our move, then I would like to lose an additional 10 pounds.

I have a running/training schedule all mapped out for me. This week will begin my third week and last week was my best week! I was able to get in all my runs and a couple of strength training sessions. However, I have been failing at the good, clean eats! Ugh, why can't I just balance it all?!? Food prep is going down today though and that should help for sure. I have to make sure I eat enough so my body doesn't think I'm starving, because it goes into some panic mode when I run. Like I'm being chased my zombies or something and I'm on life alert! So balancing my meals and what I put in has to be balanced. I'm fine tuning that as I work on my food prep.

I'm also going to be working a little more on strengthening. I don't want to over do it and risk and injury but at the same time I know I need strength training to help build those muscles to get me through the 20+ weeks of training and the 26.1 miles on race day!

Here is what I've come up with starting today and will continue to do for the next 30 days.

 I would LOVE to have you join me. If you do the challenge be sure and use hashtag #ISOAT30DayChallenge I'm on Facebook and Instagram @ItStartedOutAsTherapy. 

'till next time... Get some therapy and RUN!!!!
