Well world, it’s been awhile.
Yesterday morning I posted on instagram how I’ve kind of fallen off when it comes to fitness. Well, not fitness all together. Just my own. It’s funny how even though I work full time in this industry, my own fitness has taken a back seat. But I can’t just blame my job. It’s me. I’ve let other things lately take priority.
For one, my fairly new relationship. What’s that saying? Oh yeah, fat and happy. While I
would never describe myself or anyone as fat, I’ve definitely become pleasantly plump over the past 8 months. Eating out and sleeping in have taken over. But on top of that I’ve been helping him with a huge project that I thought I’d share a little bit with you.
So about a year and half ago my boyfriend bought this house that needed a ton of work and he’s been working on it for awhile now. Being the Fixer Upper/Joanna Gaines obsessed person that I am, I was immediately intrigued. Now, I don’t egret offering to help because it’s really made us closer, but I won’t lie, it takes up a lot of my free time lately. Which means when weekends once meant long runs, it means long days painting now.
I also think that last year I might have worn myself out a bit with how many races I did. You know, 6 half marathons, 2 full marathons, 1 olympic tri, 2 sprint tris and 1 attempt at a half ironman might have been a bit over doing it for me. All the while starting a new job and getting 2 promotions. This year is more than half over and all I’ve done are 3 half marathons and one 10k. I do have one full marathon planned for this year, but to be honest my commitment to training has been less than stellar.
So I thought I would come back here and document my come back. Starting today. This week I will get back on this fitness horse. Stop eating like crap and start taking my health serious again. You heard it here folks. It’s going to be an uphill battle but I’m open to the challenge.
PS: I also commit to updating this blog again at least once a week. So stay tuned!!!
