What a crazy week. Crazy, but in a good way. I had some successes at work, some successes on the comedy stage and some successes in health.
What I’ve focused on over the last two weeks is my attitude. I’m changing my thought process to focus on Positives rather than Negatives. No more “Oh No, How and I going to run this race,” to “I can’t wait to run this race.”
I think that the attitude change has really helped me feel more at piece in a lot of areas in my life and taken a way some of the anxiety that was making me dread my workouts instead of enjoy them like I used to. Also, I’ve lost another 3 pounds with was my primary goal, but has been a welcome bi-product of me healthy diet and exercise program.
This week, I’m continuing my workout routine. I plan to log 12 miles of running this week, plus at least 2 days of strength training and 2 days of yoga. I’m using some Nutrition Tips I found in this months edition of Fitness Magazine to tweak my diet. Their recommendations include a daily diet that is about 60 percent carbs, 20 percent from lean proteins, and 20 percent from fat. Here’s the link to what the Fitness Magazine dietician and director of Nutrition Energy in New York City, Lauren Antonucci, RD, recommends. Smart Nutrition Tips for Runners
If everything goes well the rest of March, I should be in a good position to really kick the final eight weeks of training before I hit race day in June. One of my Mamavation Sistas told me I should definitely put in the training before I run this Half Marathon. I plan to take her advice. I’m sure my body will appreciate it.
