I had my first weigh-in since Mission ReFocus started!  I lost 3.8 lbs! Yay, I am super excited.  The goal this week (my weeks run Wed-Wed) is to start making a more concerted effort to actually care what foods I am eating.  I may have to rework the July meal plan.  I'll think more about it over the next couple of days.  

Excited to be heading back in the right direction!!

It is time to REFOCUS!

I know that I shouldn't be hard on myself about being injured and not being able to live up to my potential but I am still disappointed.... 

It's been a difficult 3 months. 

It's been an epic FAIL.

But it's over.  I've recovered.  I need to move on.  And move on I shall.  

The ankle, the knee and the back are all feeling better.  Perhaps not 100% but definitely back on track.  I started running again and training for my next half in Kauai, Hawaii!  

I've slacked on the diet like a fat kid that loves cupcakes!  I've gained weight.  It's not pretty being in this body right now.  It is especially difficult to run.  I hate it.  My pace time is crap.  My breathing is crap.  My knees are crap.  

So I am refocusing on making myself better.  My diet is never going to be perfect.  I don't like fruits and veggies much.  But I know what I need to do to lose the weight.  I just have to focus and stop letting all the nagging thoughts in my head win.  This week I am focusing on writing my food in my journal.  Next week I'll worry about what food I am actually putting into my mouth. 

I am back to tracking my steps, my workouts and being accountable.  I am also making a re-acquaintance with my blog.  When I physically and mentally checked out on my weight loss journey, I also checked out on my ability to care about myself.  When you don't care you really shouldn't be trying to share with others.  So I am happy to be back to sharing my successes and failures.  

On the positive side, my training is going well.  I ran my first 5.5 miles since March!  It felt flipping fantastic!  I was pumped at the end.  

One day at a time.  One step at a time.   

Here is the menu for this week:
Sunday:  Grilled Pork Chops
Monday:  Tortilla Soup (crock)
Tuesday: Bourbon Chicken
Wednesday: LO
Thursday: Fish 
Friday: Nephew Tan's birthday party so I'm having CAKE!
Saturday: LO

I'll try to post every Sunday and when needed in between!  I am so glad to be back writing my blog.  A girl forgets how therapeutic it can be!
