I did it. First half marathon is officially paid for. Registration confirmation.
While I was at it I found a lucky leprechaun race 7k in March. 

Training has commenced!! 

Day 3 of the shred went well. I'm 85% eating clean and then I need a piece of chocolate. Its cool. 

What steps are you taking to reach your goals?

Day 1 New Years Shred

I did the 6 week Holiday Shred with Nhershoesfitness. I lost 8 lbs and changed the way I ate. Because I was so happy with the results and because I still have 9 more lbs to go to get back to prepregnancy weight I'm back at it with the New Years Shred.

Day 1 today! Healthy eating has commenced. It's not as hard as it was in the beginning of the holiday shred and I like myfitnesspal to track my calories. The workout was beyond intense. 3 rounds of 40x burpees, squats, push-ups, lunges, shoulder presses, tick ticks, tri dips, sumo jerk, and bicep curls. I did 2 rounds and that was enough!! 

I also signed up for the Prove it Challenge to train and run a half marathon with anothermotherrunner. Check out there website and sign up! 

Working towards my goals one day at a time!

Happy New Year!

I spent New Years Day at work helping someone receive an organ transplant to save there life. Not a bad way to spend the day. 

I decided to try the RW runstreak from Thanksgiving Day to New Years Day and I put my last mile in before work on Jan 1st. Last mile and first mile for 2014.

2014.  This year I have plans. It'll be the first year since 2010 that I won't spend part of it pregnant. I'm quite pleased about that. I love my babies...who wouldn't love these sweeties.
But I'm super happy to have my body mostly to myself. I say mostly because I'll spend a good chunk of this year breast feeding. That's cool I like providing that for my daughter. 

I'm in the camp of not really diggin New Years resolutions I like goals. I thought I'd write them down here. Writing them down definitely makes them real for me.

Running Goals
1. Run one half marathon
2. Run 1000 miles in 2014
3. Run 5 additional races

Personal Goals
1. Spend time alone each day with each kid
2. Make date night a priority. Alone time with husband at least once a month.
3. Become better at balancing work, mommyhood, and me.

Blogging Goals.
1. Blog at least once per week.

I have been slacking at blogging but honestly learning how to manage two kids and work and oh I don't know sleep here and there blogging has gone down on the list. I want to do better.

What are your goals for 2014?
