My weight loss has been plateauing for a bit.  I’ll be honest, it sucks.  So we’re shaking things up by trying out Cross Fit (at our friend’s amazing gym) and I’ve been taking a hard look at my sleep (which is really crappy) and my stress levels (also super crappy).  In a lot of ways overhauling our diet and exercise was a lot easier than putting myself first and making time for self care and proper sleep.  Funny how that works, eh?

So there’s that. Two lofty, ambitious fitness goals that I’ve been working towards, dreaming about, visualizing almost every night. At the end of April I’ll be running 10k in Mississauga and over Thanksgiving I’ll be giving the Okanagan half marathon a go. If you are in either of these places at those times I’d love to see/hear you along the route or at the finish.

Lately I’ve been feeling like I’m in an exercise rut.  Signing up for these races has been a great motivator to try something different and set a goal that’s not related to the scale.  I’ve been following a very simple walk/run program and it’s so exciting to get through each week feeling stronger than the last.  The numbers on the scale have been slow to move these past few weeks so it’s been nice to focus on something else.
