One of my favorite songs by Beyoncé is Get Me Bodied. It is on my running playlist constantly. But here is the thing. I haven't been doing anything recently to "get my body tight, get my body right" Halloween candy, McDonalds and just carbs have been in heavy rotation around here with no exercise or healthy eating to speak of.
It has been two weeks since the half marathon and I have a 10k + a 3k to run this weekend. I've decided I'll run the 10k and then go back and run the 5k with the rest of the folks from my church that I've motivated and encouraged to run too. Ambitious only if I try to get a personal best on Saturday but I think I'll just go for finishing in an hour so I can meet the girls at the start line.
From here forward I'm going to channel Ms. Sasha Fierce - as a matter of fact I have a shirt that reads "I Run To Be.... Renée Fierce" gotta live up to it. I can't get those abs and legs without exercising and I'd hate to let all of the work that I've done up until now go to waste.
Time to get back on track start training again and strengthen up these loose muscles. A daily challenge until I get back in the groove but I know I'll get my rhythm back. Hopefully sooner than later. And the scale? Well, let's just say I'm up about 8 pounds or so. I am optimistic about it because it is that TOM and that should account for some of it....I hope!
