third time’s a charm – The Shrinking Jeans of Lisa

Sometimes, this healthy living/make good choices thing is HARD.

I’m just going to lay it out there.

Right now, it’s really hard for me.


I am making terrible food choices and I have lapsed back into nighttime snacking, which is one of my nmesis.  In my head I know this yet I seem powerless to keep my hands from reaching from the salty snacks sometime between 9pm and 11pm.  I know, I know, I KNOW.  My life is so crazy right now and it’s mostly good stuff and exciting stuff but O-M-F-G, it’s exhausting , physically and mentally.   This week I have had a difficult time turning my brain off at night and going to sleep.  I rarely have problems going to sleep, EXCEPT when I have TOO much going on.

I have too much going on. 

The one thing I am continuing to do right is to exercise. 

Scratch that.  Train. 

I am training for my next half marathon.  The Zooma Austin Half Marathon on April 16th.  I have been fortunate enough to be chosen as one of the Zooma Austin Ambassadors, which is an honor unto itself.  I wanted it so bad and now I got it.   I have come so far with this running thing.  Back in Oct 2009 when I started, I could not fathom running one half, let alone two, and now my third.  Plus, someone thinks highly enough of me to ask me to share my love and passion with other runners.  WOW!

So yeah, I’m still here, treading water to keep my head above and breathing……barely.
