tough going

Well nobody said this eating right, healthy lifestyle, losing weight stuff would be easy and it is so not easy right now. It was ridiculously easy to get off track over the holidays. There was a lot of sitting around and eating. A lot.

Now it's just hard to get back in the swing of things. I don't know if it's because it gets dark so early or what, but I have a hard time finding time to run. The kids are doing better with our new homework routine, but it requires a lot of my time. Time I used to spend running. So finding that balance has been hard. Plus treadmill runs are sooooo boring. I don't mind walking on the treadmill or interval training, but I'm really afraid if I don't get some 5k runs in I'm just going to forget how to do it. Which is totally crazy, but still......

I guess I'm just a bit stuck at the moment and I'm not liking it very much at all.


I hear ya!!! I hate, hate, hate the treadmill. So much so that I ran 5k outside yesterday in -29C. It was sunny, and I layered but at night? No thanks!!!

I just hang on to the fact that there's just a few more months left...We're almost there! Hang in!
are you able to change it up? Do some different types of work outs (running in the freezing winter is so hard)? Youtube is full of HIIT workouts that would be great company to your tread mill runs.
I am going to restart the couch25k as soon as the snow melts. It is really hard when the ice on the ground won't melt. =)Chin up! This season will soon be over!
I must honestly admit I always slack off in my sporting routines in winter. It's so hard in those dark cold days to pack yourself up and get going
