New mommy trying to balance work and life.

2014 Update: Well last year I had a kid, gained 55 pounds, and still have 30 to lose. Boo! Good thing the baby is cute :-)

I've signed up for a half marathon on March 30 and am trying to get back into my running routine. My biggest struggle is healthy eating. Hoping back on Spark to get support and track all my food since it worked so well in 2010.

Goals for 2014: Lose the baby weight by baby's first birthday!

Goals for 2014: Lose the baby weight by baby's first birthday!

Original post: Hello! My name is Debra, and I started exercising in January of 2010, initially motivated by my engagement. I had put on 40 pounds in grad school, but was always overweight. Now, I'm married and I'm back to my pre-grad-school weight, but would like to lose another 15 pounds.

Along the way, I've developed a love of running...especially in races. I completed my first 5K in April 2010, my first Half Marathon in March 2011, and the Marine Corps Marathon in October, 2011.

For 2012...looking forward to continuing to live a healthy lifestyle and setting new goals.

My Goals:
I want to be healthy and fit. And look cute in my clothes :-)

Along the way:

1. Continue to beat my 5K race time (PR 27:24)

2. Run a 10K race (DONE! PR 63:54)

3. Run a half-marathon (DONE! PR 2:08:14)

4. Run a marathon (MCM 10/30/11. DONE! PR 5:16:10)

My Program:
In 2011 I ran my first half marathon...and my first marathon. I am struggling to develop a "maintenance" running program. I'm no good without a race on the horizon!

Generally, I run 4 times a week, for 20ish miles total.

I should lift weights twice a week, but it ends up being more like once a week. I'm also trying to do some stationary biking at the gym too.

Personal Information:
Currently living in Fairfax, VA but previously lived in Ohio for ten years.

Go Buckeyes!

Other Information:
Dead Last Finish is greater than Did Not Finish, which greatly trumps Did Not Start.

Thanks for your comments on my blog. Sometimes I miss my "baby" but love discovering new things with my little guy!

The baby weight will fall off, especially once you get back into a running routine and get used to eating for one person again. :) Sounds like you're already there, if you're planning a March race! Those first few months are such a challenge, because as soon as you get used to the routine, something changes.

(How's the sleep?! For me, it was all about the sleep!)

I am hoping to do a half on March 16th, but since I've spent most of December and part of January fighting a series of colds, I'm not so sure how that will go! There are always others, though, so I'm not going to stress about it!
