I’ve been noticing I’m not as disciplined as I used to be… in High School I ran nearly every single day around three miles (or more) and wasn’t quite as addicted to brownies and cookies as I am now. But, in full disclosure, I would sometimes run down to the penny candy store, buy a bag of 100 Sour Patch Kids and eat them as I ran home. I’m not sure if three miles made up for that. 🙂
But now… post baby and pushing a jogging stroller my motivation has waned and I’m SICK OF IT. I need to get back to my disciplined self and log those miles and eat far fewer junk foods. I’ve mentioned before that my mid-section doesn’t look like it used to, well, Jen, it’s no ones fault but your own. Okay, well, and Drew’s. 🙂 Here is my challenge for myself, and you, if you want to take it:
I’ve heard habits are built in two weeks so let’s build some healthy habits. I’m going to log my food intake and exercise for two weeks and put them at the bottom of every post. I’m realizing that I need more accountability than I used to and I’m going to use you, Fabulous Blog Readers, as this inspiration and accountability.
Thus far I’ve made this amazing oatmeal, but cut the sugar in half. Half of the recipe I’ll eat tomorrow morning. You’ve got to try it, it’s delish and sticks by you! And Drew and I just got back from running the loop around the Essex County Club, it’s a three miler and it took me 30 minutes pushing my little Tank. 🙂 It’s amazing how much faster I am (not fast like AJ, though) when I run sans stroller.
I’ll post tonight after dinner about my menu for the day. I know, super exciting, right? 🙂
