I am back in Minnesota from Sunny Florida. I was lucky enough to go on a mini vacation with no kids and no hubby. It was just what the doctor ordered. If I was any more relaxed I would have been in a coma. Sun, cold Coronas with lime, and vegging out by a pool; I cannot think of a better way to end the summer.
My blogging has been so sparse lately. Yes, I have been busy but I have been MIA because I have been in a bit of a funk. I was really getting sick of listening to myself bitch and I certainly did not want to piss and moan publicly. Dropping out of the marathon and adding those few extra pounds that put me over my starting Weight Watcher weight really put a damper on my mood. The good news is, my mojo is starting to resurface.
After eating my way through the Minnesota State Fair this past weekend (deep fried pickles and cheese curds **drool**), I decided that I needed to get myself back on the wagon and get to a meeting STAT. My normal day is Thursday, but truthfully I did not want to face my leader with another gain so I went tonight instead. I am really glad I did. I immediately meshed with the new leader and ended up talking with her for almost an hour after the meeting ended. I think I am going to attend her meeting for the next few weeks to shake things up a bit. I still love my original leader but I need some new ideas. I feel like I am cheating on her. Ha!
Today I also signed up for a 10 week pilates class. I met this woman who teaches a class through my son's school. She just launched her own Pilates studio. I thought I would give it a shot and hope to finally get some of my core strength back. My BFF is also going to be taking this class with me. If I am going to look like an ass, I am bringing in reinforcements.
Running? What is that? As I mentioned in a previous post, I am going to have to start from scratch. I am fine with that although if I am going to complete my one and only goal of becoming a runner this year I must get started soon. I guess it is back to the old C25K program. This time, there is a 5K fun run that I want to do. I want to be ready for both the Turkey Trot and the Reindeer Run this winter. That is a realistic goal that I can complete.
