Hello again

August 19, 2011

It’s been way too long since my last post… and I’m definitely feeling it. As this blog has primarily been about getting out whats going on in life, its also been about keeping myself accountable in health and fitness.I’ve stayed accountable for the most part, but haven’t quite felt as airy as I haven’t been writing things out.

The good news is I’ve completed all of my 5k training runs up to date! My last run before the race is today, and my goal is to be able to run 2.5 miles straight. Wednesday I ran 2 1/4 and it was a little tough (didn’t help that my route had some hills). I even managed to get a run in on Saturday while I was out of town 🙂 I’ll check in later tonight after this run.

Some other good news: the itching has dramatically subsided. I’m not sure if its the vitamins/supplements I’m taking, cutting out gluten/wheat (for the most part), dairy or what. I know for sure it has nothing to do with caffeine because I honestly didn’t feel a difference, other than a drastic whole body craving on Friday and Saturday. So I gave in and had a delicious iced tea on Friday night, and an iced Americano Saturday morning. Oh how I’ve missed you Peets (and Starbucks while we were away lol)!

I do know that my body reacts a certain way to alcohol… I’ve cut it out as much as I could but have enjoyed it a few times, and my stomach doesn’t completely agree with it or my skin. It seems that one glass of wine doesn’t effect me too much, but that second glass puts my stomach in a not 😦 At least I’m gathering more information and am more aware now.

One more thing I’m now aware of: I like blogging. I like writing things out, expressing myself, taking the time to find the words that best suit what I’m feeling. So I’m going to keep it up, find a schedule that best works for me, and stick to it.
