Just keep running...

I'm Susi, a mom who is determined to lead a healthier life and be a good role model for my little girl.

The challenge, of course, is finding time to fit exercise into an already packed schedule. My life as a working mom (is there any other kind?) is already non-stop, and my DH is in school full-time, which just adds to the insanity.

But what's life without a little wackiness?!

My plan is to lose 1/2 - 1 lb each week, until I'm finally at my goal of 120. ...

My plan is to lose 1/2 - 1 lb each week, until I'm finally at my goal of 120.


I'll achieve this by:

* A minimum of 30 minutes of exercise each day

* Eating cleanly, and consistently tracking everything I eat


To stay sane (and fit everything in my schedule), this includes:

* Alternating afternoon runs with early-morning workouts, as my schedule allows

* Including DD in workouts whenever I can, either in the jogging stroller or having mother-daughter Pilates sessions

* Batch cooking my breakfasts and lunches for the week

* Planning dinners ahead of time each week, so we don't resort to take-out or packaged meals


Update:

I'm training for my second 1/2 marathon, and will continue to focus on running. I plan to do 3 short (3-5 mile) runs per week in the afternoons after work, and then a long run on the weekends. I'll be incorporating twice weekly yoga classes for flexibility, and filling in with other cardio and strength training on non-running days.

emoticon Fall is my favorite season. I think it is a great idea to treat it like a new year! Do you have any resolutions?

I am working toward my Bachelor degree in the evenings. It is definitely an interesting experience. I am tired all the time though! : ) Thanks for checking up on me.

"Fancy Jeans" Love that!!! Exactly what I'm going for on class days. Business Casual on Hospital Days (Wednesday and Fridays mostly)
Now, is there such thing as "Fancy Yoga Pants" for days I don't leave the house? LoL!

Thank you. Sadly no because of my husbands crazy work schedule but I'm sure I'll spend time playing mexican bingo (loteria) LOL. I need to go for shoes and socks for my son. I have a wedding and 15 also but don't want to attend alone if hubby is working, so we'll see.
