Hello there! Long time no talk. The past month has been crazy busy at work, but this week I made a commitment to myself that I would get back on track… so here we go. Week 1 (and some random ramblings about the happenings of late).
- I signed up to run the Pittsburgh Half Marathon again in May as a charity runner for the Animal Rescue League. Last year was the first year I signed up as a charity runner and I wasn’t really sure what to expect. It will be a bit more difficult for me this year because living 3 hours away will make it tough to participate in most of the charity events, but the show must go on! If you would like to donate to the cause or become a charity runner yourself, you can find my page here:
2. I have been trying to take advantage of this beautiful fall weather to get some runs in. I recently got a Fitbit Charge HR and I am in LOVE. It is such a motivator for me to get moving when I have to try to meet my 10,000 steps and to get to bed when I want to meet my 8 hour sleep goals.
I also really enjoyed Laurel’s FitBit challenge this week. I actually walked laps around our apartment to meet my goal last night… but hey, a step’s a step.
I don’t think I’m the only one enjoying all these extra steps…
3. On Tuesday evening I even made it back to the yoga studio for a hot happy hour. I love yoga. It is such a great workout physically and mentally. And who doesn’t feel accomplished after a good sweat at a heated class?? I realized the other day that I haven’t been to a class since the beginning of the summer. I should probably also mention that it feels painful to be back. Holy crap, I was sore the past 2 days. (But I secretly love it.)
4. Now the challenge will be to stick with it! Consistency is my arch nemesis (incase you haven’t noticed). I know this is probably not my last ‘Week 1’ ever, but hopefully it is the last one for a while. 🙂
Now to keep the momentum going over the weekend! Happy Friday, all!
