Time to scale it down a bit...

I was a little over ambitious when I wrote my goals.

Being gluten-free is a must, I can't skimp on that. Reflection/meditation time is a must as well.
The other two? Those are interchangeable. I only need to do ONE of those each day.

Today... my goal is to go down to the gym and run on the treadmill for a half hour. I'll just have Little Monster bring something to do.

Originally Mr. B & I were planning to run in a marathon this year, but I kept getting sick, and Mr. B's work schedule kept changing and we haven't had time to train. So I figure if I start by running on the Treadmill I should be good. I need to work on keeping my heart rate down. I think I could run all day once I figure that out.
Last night one of my friends reminded me that there is supposed to be a half marathon in May this year, and the marathon Mr. B wants us to run is July 25th.

This will be my new exercise program. Eventually I hope to work-out every day.


This last week has been pretty amazing. I've gotten to spend a lot of extra time with Mr. B & Little Monster. We had a quiet Christmas at home, Little Monster & I went ice-skating with some friends on Saturday, Mr. B & I saw Avatar in 3D on Sunday, last night we went out with friends and then came home and put Little Monster to bed... then we stayed up until 5 am looking at pictures of when he was a baby as well as photos from when Mr. B was gone this summer. It was nice. Then today Little Monster & I went for a walk at our favorite park.

I couldn't have asked for a better week.

But now I'm off to get some lunch for my boy and I... I think we're having peanut butter & jelly sandwiches.

Good job on the work-out! I'm happy you figured out/are figuring out a way to make everything work for you. I'm also glad you had such a great week - those are the best - when you can enjoy all the little things.
