Laziness, nothing but pure laziness ...

Posted Mar 23 2010 1:30pm
Well, dear friends, I have a confession to make. I have been nothing, if not lazy and apathetic, the past few months or so. My doctor said I have a little S.A.D ., and I think she's right, because I started coming out of my little blah blah blah moods slowly over the past week, with the return of the sunshine, blue skies, and warmer temperatures. Of course, a 5-week long case of acute sinusitis and eustachian tube dysfunction certainly didn't help, but enough with trying to find an excuse to justify my laziness ...

I find myself once again yearning for clean healthy foods (especially fruits and vegetables), and can't think about anything but getting a good sweat on. Several friends ran their first half-marathons this past weekend, and reading about their excitement and accomplishments have really lit my running fire. I'm 130 days away from the Chicago Rock n Roll Half-Marathon (my 2nd half-marathon), and I'm daring myself to improve my time by at least 25%! Sounds crazy, but I'm gonna push myself and really give my training a serious effort!

I'm very proud to say my 13-year old son has decided to run the half-marathon with me - he became a triathlete at 11-years old, and while he's more of a book and video game kind of kid, he keeps active playing tennis and indoor rock climbing. Tackling a half-marathon at 13-years old is HUGE in my opinion ... when I was 13, running a half-marathon wasn't even a fleeting thought in my mind. All I cared about was boys, boys, boys LOL

I purchased a Nike+ for my son to keep him motivated (what kid doesn't like cool gadgets?), and he also signed up for a profile at (feel free to add him and me as DailyMile friends!). We're easing our way into scheduled workouts at the gym this week, and officially kick off our half-marathon training on April 1st (no foolin'!)

I also purchased a bodybugg for myself, and have been easing myself back into tracking my nutrition - each and every bite - and pushing myself to meet my calorie burn every day. It's been about a solid week of bodybugg-ing, and I've lost 4.4 lbs, so I must be doing something right, eh?

I hope everyone has been doing well, I can't wait to catch up on all your blogs!
