Healthy You Check In

I thought I'd get this done a little early this week :)

I am so glad to actually be healthy this week! The flu/stomach bug that attached itself to me last week was absolutely brutal and Sunday was the first day in nearly a week that I finally felt "normal" and was able to eat normal food without it sending my stomach into distress. So now that I'm finally getting my head above water this week, I'm realizing holy moly! It's already the 9th of June! This month is flying by! But the last few weeks have been great on the weight loss front but especially on the personal front. I've been able to spend lots of time with my man... which is awesome because he lives 6 hours away. He's down here this week and then I'll go back up to his place next Thursday. My girls absolutely adore him and he them so that makes everything even better. I am just trying to soak up as much time as possible with him this summer because (drumroll please!!) I got accepted into school for this fall!! I had applied to several different programs and was waitlisted on all of them but was just accepted into my first choice last week. Very excited about it!

Things on the diet and exercise front could definitely improve though... even though I've managed to pull out some decent losses, I know it won't last if I don't get back on it. It's not that my motivation is lacking, it's more just a time thing. I really need to work on this this week and find ways to exercise, even if M is here or if I am up at his place. As far as food goes, I haven't tracked either and have made decent choices, definetly small serving sizes, especially of foods that may not be the best choices.

As far as June's goals go...
1- Lose 8lbs by June 30 I'm at 4.4/8
2- Get 1000 cardio minutes I'm still at 0... may need to adjust this
3- Try again for 3 runs a week I didn't run in the last week because I was sick... this week? Hopefully at least two

Congrats on School! How wonderful to get your first choice. As for your cold I feel your pain. I got to play that game last week as well. Nothing worse than wanting to get up and do something but being stuck in bed instead. Im glad to hear your feeling better. :-)
