I have been struggling all week with what to write for today. I am drawing a blank even as I type this.


Maybe I am having difficulties because I wasn’t really motivated this week to work out. I did weights once and that was about it. I am planning a short run tonight. Hopefully this weekend will find me in better spirits to keep at it.


I love seeing the results. This week I have not seen results. I weigh daily and my weight continues to go up. I doubt it is all fat, as I haven’t been eating out of control (definitely not 3500 plus calories over). I have had a lot of sodium though.


I don’t know why I’ve felt so lazy. I feel really tired and run down which may attribute but I also know working out makes me feel better. It is always an internal struggle.


I also feel like I am between routines and just going through the motions. I have felt this way since I completed my half. I need a goal to work towards or a better plan of action. I am just floundering,  treading water, waiting for it to hit me. Maybe goal isn’t the correct word. I have a goal. I don’t feel I have a plan, a way to get there. A way to achieve.


I can’t wait much longer. I need to figure this out. I have about two weeks until my vacation. I want to have a plan to put into action once I get back.


The plan should include the following:

  • Running
  • Strength training (possibly read/follow NWOLFW)
  • Ballet classes at Ballet Arizona
  • Boxing/kick boxing/mma

Once running season is over I will have to adjust again. I believe my last race will be May 3rd. Basically I will need a plan for March and April. I should be able to handle that, right?
