Week 1 - By 30!

Week 1 of my "Best Shape by 30" goal went great!  
If you missed my recent post about my desire to be in my best shape by 30, you can read it here
Since I've been home since Wednesday with sickies it was difficult to keep out of snacks but working out seemed easier.  When I wanted to snack I typically opted for a cup of hot green tea.  I knew this would help boost my immunities against the nasty flu but also curb my appetite.  It worked wonders and now I am officially OBSESSED.  I was able to stay under my calorie goal everyday but Saturday.  Tyler was feeling much better and wanted stew and pineapple upside down cake...I guess I did too. :) 

My goal is not necessarily to run daily but at least five days a week.  This week I was able to get in a few miles everyday - mostly treadmill miles.  Once Tyler was feeling well enough to come out of the bedroom I was able to sneak away for a few outdoor runs.  The weather has been awesome, 50-70 degrees and very little wind.  I felt terrible that the kids weren't able to go out and play but I took advantage of it.  This afternoon I texted my girlfriend, Kady, that did a half in November to see if she would go on my long run with me.  She said she hadn't ran outdoors in months but happily agreed to go.  She did awesome.  It was nice chatting and catching up.  It made the six miles tolerable and actually fun.  She said she would love to start doing long runs with me over the weekends.  This will help a lot.  
Now onto week 2!



  1. I love your 30 goal. My only goal when I turned 30 was to stop drinking. At least u have aspirations. Lol!

    1. Sounds like a great goal girl! So you know, you and your family are still in our prayers.

  2. We have been dealing with the flu here as well! I am glad things are looking better you way!

    I love to use to track my miles too, it is extremely motivating for me and I am sure for you as well.

    You are so lucky to have a friend that enjoys running... I don't have anyone close enough to me that is all that interested in it. Good luck!
