Yes I Am...A Glorified Slacker

It's been quite a while...and for good reason. I've had nothing to post that is even remotely related to health. Okay, maybe I am just SLIGHTLY exaggerating...but whatev....

I am ready for a new year (isnt that a phrase that everyone uses???). I am ready for a new beginning (again, same phrase)...but it still rings true for me. I am tired of the saying...its okay, I can eat that IS THE HOLIDY SEASON!!!!!! Holy hell....what a cop out....

I am not happy with my body and with what I have been eating. It hasn't been horrible, but too many sweets and too many carbs will do something to ya thats for sure. Its funny how your mind works, well atleast mine. I will look at myself in the mirror and think...sheesh I need to change some things. THEN... five minutes later go in the kitchen and eat a cookie and say, oh its not gonna matter. DUH!

One problem is that I am still breastfeeding. So I still need to find that balance between eating good and still having enough to provide for the little one. I do believe that my body won't be exactly where I want it until AFTER I am done nursing. But I can STILL eat better and start to feel better about myself.

I have missed running. I have been so busy with working, holidays and everything else going on that I just haven't had the time. I ran 5 miles on New Years Day and it felt great to get out. But it was a hard 5 miles!!! I couldn't believe it...I was definitely out of my normal rhythm and it had been too long since I had run.

So, it's a new year. What are my fitness goals for this year? I actually have no sad is that? I haven't had time to even THINK about

Can I join you? i am guilty of eating too much crap, complaining about my not so hot body and then eating more crap. And I consider myself an intelligent woman ;) Nursing has been my excuse and frankly it still is, but i can certainly do better. I am sure your "bad" days look like my "good" ones.
