11 Days Later

Tag: Health, Nutrition, Plans and Goals
Feb 27th, 2011

I have decided I am going to try to lose just a few pounds, to get below 160 consistently. I really feel like I will run faster if I am lighter. I’m not dieting, though. I’m going to do a combination of cutting back on some of my treats (smaller soy lattes, only one Cherry Coke a day) and adding extra cardio in the form of rope skipping on BodyRock days. I’m also being more diligent about taking my dogs on a 1.5 mile walk on non-running days. My Blackie-dog, who is my running partner, has gained weight since we moved to Texas. She needs to lose a pound or two.

I’d love to do it completely by exercise, but I seem to be one of those lucky people who gets flulike symptoms from working out too hard, so I have to be careful. I lose almost a week every time I push it too hard. I’m trying to be diligent about taking my vitamins to try to help.

    Hi! So glad you are blogging again, and thanks for putting me in your blogroll!! I can’t wait to hear what marathon you choose. Houston is a good one–I may try to get in for next January.

    Do you mind if I add you to my blogroll? I don’t have a lot of readers, but every link helps.
