I can't believe today is the last day of November. This year has just flown by. I do love this time of year (except for the weather, of course....) I am so excited about the holidays this year, that I have joined 3 different holiday exchanges:
1. A really cool Christmas Card exchange. I did this one last year and it was so neat to meet people from all over the world!
2. The DailyMile Secret Santa. I am super excited about this one. DailyMile has become my source of inspiration...and a place where I have been introduced to some excellent athletes....and made some incredible friends.
3. A Blogger Christmas exchange. This is a new one for me, but it sounds like it was a lot of fun last year, and I cannot wait to do it this year!
I have been trying to get back into some good eating habits. I have found that I am gaining weight....and this does not make me especially happy. For now I am trying to really watch my calorie intake for the day. I know that it is all mental....but I feel like I am always hungry. I am making sure to eat every couple of hours, but I am being sure to make wise choices. It has made these last couple of days a challenge. I am really hoping I will be able to get back down to my goal weight , and that in turn will help my speed. My goal is to lose 15-20 pounds by March for the Arnold 5k.
I had a run on the schedule tonight, but it is getting postponed until tomorrow morning. I am beyond exhausted for some reason, and I can feel the beginning of a headache, plus I was behind on grading. So while I would normally go for a run while T is at bells, I decided to work on grading for an hour and then come home and try to get to bed early. Tomorrow is a new day, and I will be hitting the pavement (or maybe the TM) first thing tomorrow morning. As I type this I am covered in a puppy blanket...my two cavaliers are very snuggly. It is making me very warm....and sleepy. I think it is time to wrap this post up!
Do any of you struggle with weight issues? How do you handle it?
