Tonight I am going to kick ass in the gym.

I'm either going to spin or run  - hoping to spin but I may not make it home in time from my hour long commute....oy!

Then I am going to do Ashley's 35 minute full body workout which I'm pretty excited to bust out. 

Operation pre-season in full effect.

Full report tomorrow.

The Definition of Insanity...

...is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.  Yup, that about sums up my week in food!  Why do I make the choices I make when the better option is so much better?  When will I ever learn?  Sigh....

Operation "Get Moving" is taking effect pronto.  The now job and hours has really put a damper on my exercise routine.  I went from a 5 day a weeker to barely 3.  YIKES.  Mornings in the winter are tough, I keep promising myself that tomorrow will be different, but I end up sleeping in.  I guess I'm going to have to power through evening workouts or plan 2 days a week to work out near work. We have a little gym in the building and there is a Soul Cycle just down the LIE.  No matter what, I have to get my workouts in, I miss the feeling of a good sweat session! Or a brisk night run.  The truth is I'm afraid that I'll get to a point where I won't do anything, and that is not cool.  I can see how easy it is to slip back to old school ways, and for me that is super scary.

I need to be bikini ready this summer.  I have been saying that for probably forever and I'll be mad if I don't get there this year.  There I said it: BIKINI READY.  Goal of the year (err...Century?)

Ok, enough about that.

On a fun running note, I ran the Sayville Running Company 10 mile Run to the Brewery this past weekend.  Not a PR, but not a bad run either. I think I averaged a 9:56 pace, I felt great and was pretty happy with myself.  The last time I ran 10 was back in November so to be able to cover the distance was ease was pretty awesome. The after party was not too bad either! 

Not sure what is up next, aside from eating better and working out, but for now that should be enough!

I'm Not Dead

WOW.  It's been awhile.  Sorry about that!

Ok, where to start...

I needed a break after Chicago, then came Hurricane Sandy, then came the job search because I got the boot the Fri after Sandy, then came the job search that led to a job 2 weeks into unemployment then the holidays.

So, a lot has been going on.

But I've been reading a ton of blogs, just not commenting or writing.  I'm not even sure why exactly.  I guess I just needed a break.

I also ate a lot of cookies and saw a decrease in my running since I've been back to work and it's cold and dark out. 

Which means I'm successfully limiting my carbs - specifically no more bread and all things that I love.  I know, been there, done that.  But I seem to be making progress so wahoo to me.

What to expect now?  Hopefully some worthwhile posts, a few race recaps and the normal crap I post.

Feels good to be back!

Oh, and Happy New Years friends! And I promise to not post my resolutions or goals, at least for today :)
