Woah. I’m once again sorry for my absence.
It has been a heck of a week.
I did restaurant week with my gal pals.
We hit up Henrietta’s Table.
Good food. Good company as always.
I then headed to Maine for the long weekend to enjoy some time
with friends and family. It was a little too much enjoyment and I didn’t
get all my running in. It was a trade off that made sense for me.
Friends > running.
This brings up a really important point. What do you do to
get back on track after a bender?
For me- this summer has kind of been a bender. I’ve had
mornings where I don’t feel so hot and I feel a little bloated.
But I have a half-marathon to look forward and that keeps me
on track no matter what else is going on. While I was in Maine, I
tried to make time to squeeze in running and walking. I make sure I’m
getting plenty of water and veggies in my life… even if it is chased
by a slice of pizza. Summer is rough but Fall is here. And with it
comes ideal running weather, beautiful new clothes and for me- less
My advice to getting/staying back on track:
1- Set a Goal- For me this was a half marathon. Training for
something keeps me going.
2- Salads, fresh veggies and whole foods- even if you have a slice of
pizza, don’t beat yourself up! Just pair it with a large salad.
3- Water!- Drink plenty of water. Flush out the bad and rehydrate.
4- Move yourself- Move your body. Sometimes it means taking the dogs
for a 3 miles walk. It’s better than nothing!
So with that- it’s time to set some new goals.
Here are mine:
1- Finish my half-marathon in under 2hrs.
2- Lose the booze- summer is over. Let’s slow down
3- Get back into the gym and lift weights.
What kind of goals do you have?
