Wow, it's been quite a while since my last blog. I kind of took a break from everything for a while. I got tired of counting calories and feeling bad for not working out, etc. After a week of vacation, including a few days in Las Vegas where I kept overeating till I needed to nap, I was ready to come back and do this. I get so frustrated because sometimes (often) I feel like I'm never going to get to my goals. I seem to give up too easily when I don't see that I'm making any progress. I keep trying different things, like carb cycling, smoothies, etc, to see if this could be any easier, but no luck. No progress. All I feel lately is fat and tired. The one thing I've been pretty good about is doing my three runs/week for my half marathon training. I'm up to about 13-14 miles per week. But still not feeling so great. I realize this blog seems a little contradictory--I try to feel good at least about my running. I think I just got upset when I stood on the scale and it hadn't changed at all despite my conscious efforts.
Ugh. I'm feeling scatterbrained and so this blog is ending up a little scattered. I think I'm going to stop with the gimmicks and just go back to basics here at Sparkpeople. Anyone else feel like it's never gonna happen?
