Weekly Workouts

Once upon a time, I used to share my weekly workouts. It was a type of accountability and it worked pretty flipping good. So in a hope to revive the accountability I’m so craving when it comes to my training, I’m bringing them back.

The past few months, I’ve been a part of a weight loss accountability group – but I’m struggling. I’m struggling with thyroid levels that are making my weight loss – once easy pre-Ethan – now an uphill battle; I’m struggling with a sugar addiction that’s so hard to quit even though I know I need to. I’m struggling with motivation (see #1 – my thyroid issues make me tired like…just exhausted 90% of the time), so as I’m half way through this round, it’s time to get on track – and by on track I mean since my girls weekend up to Boston a month ago, the three pounds I gained from a small piece of cake and a few drinks. Every ounce of sugar or carb that I eat is nearly impossible to lose. There are no words as to how discouraging this is and how incredibly low one feels knowing that you weigh about five pounds less than you did at 38 weeks pregnant.

So, I’ve been talking for a while about going sugar and gluten-free – something I’ve read many who are hypothyroid should do (inflammation and autoimmune stuff) – so here’s hoping that helps. But each week, I’ll be sharing my workouts, the previous weeks weigh in – in hopes that this will keep me accountable and help my motivation.

I’m nearly three weeks into my Cherry Blossom 10 miler training – and so far I’ve been solidly getting 3 runs per week. I need to up both cross training and/or strength training BUT I think, upping my yoga game (I’ve been fitting in 1-2 yoga workouts a week for the past two weeks and it feels so good) may suffice for both. in addition, I’m THISCLOSE to signing up for half marathon #5 in Dewey Beach in mid-April – the perfect 34th birthday celebration (albeit two weeks AFTER my birthday).

What goals are you working towards right now?
