I'm Alive and Well....Plus Pics from Mexico

I know it has been awhile since my last post.  I have come back from Mexico, 3lbs heavier, and unmotivated and relaxed.  It was an amazing trip, but kind of got me off of my working out/running kick.  I did get in a few workouts last week:

Friday April 30th- tried spinning at Gold's for the first time...really liked it!
Saturday May 1st- Ran 3 miles on the treadmill and some weights and abs
Monday May 3rd- Body Combat
Thursday May 6th- Body Pump and ran 3 miles on the treadmill
Saturday May 8th- 3 mile run outside in the wind!
EARLY THIS MORNING- 30 Day Shred at 4:30am

Yep, you heard it right...I will be doing a two-a-day today!  I have to kick my butt in gear...get my lazy a** off of the couch and back to some motivation!  I need to get my drive and energy back!  I am going to be doing the crazy 30 Day Shred in the mornings at least 3 days/week, and then trying to get to the gym for a cardio class at least 2-3 days/week, plus 2-3 runs/week.  I have to, need to, darn near will hate myself, if I don't get this going!  I was feeling ok about my body prior to leaving for Mexico, but after all of the food and drinks that were consumed and the non-existent desire I have had, I have to push myself and stick to it!  Plus, I am working on trying a calorie style eating plan similar to what Mom vs Marathon has spoken about.  I need to do something, because I have felt drained and not like myself...Stephanie....Where are you????

I have used this last week and a half to really evaluate where I want to go, and what I want to do to get there.  I haven't stopped working out, but I haven't felt all there.  I have been down on my body image and just not happy with myself.  I hope this new plan and goal will help me get pumped back up!!!

Marathon training starts in approx. 6 weeks...CRAZY!!!!
I do plan on doing a few 5k's coming being May 23rd, and the 2nd being on June 5th (this was my VERY first 5K last year)  and possibly another in June. 

I hope everyone is doing great, and I have been reading some really neat running stories on great races going on...BQ's, PR's galore!!!  Yea for all of my inspirations...Hope to catch your bug and get back with it!  Here I leave you with a few pictures from Mexico.....

Current Giveaways going on out there:
