Let’s talk excuses

After a quick review of the last three weeks’ exercise logs, I realized this blog hasn’t kept me accountable at all. Deleting a mileage goal and replacing it with ‘rest’ is not good. Let’s recap this week:

Monday: planned rest day
Tuesday: needed to do laundry, cooked dinner for the bf, had a glass of wine
Wednesday: didn’t sleep well the night before, rough day at work, so I cooked dinner for the bf and had a glass of wine.
Thursday: terrible stomach pains so I curled up on the couch, watched tv, and then eventually had a glass of wine
Friday: planned rest day

Does this look like the week of someone who is about to run a half marathon in two weeks? Absolutely not. I just can’t get back in the swing of things! Back in April I ran 4 times a week, attended 2-3 yoga classes, and did one day of cross-training. I watched what I ate very closely, and the weight fell off pretty steadily. With positive results like that, I don’t understand what is keeping me from doing it again.

I have two issues which I think are contributing to my lack of success: sleep quality and organization. I’m going to work on a game plan this weekend and I’ll hopefully have it in place by Sunday night.

I’m off to bed, I have a 5 mile run with Katie in the morning! 🙂
