August 1st---holy cow!!

I have done alot this summer as in getting my mile base up. My long runs are 9 miles, most runs are atleast 5 miles, ranging from 5 to 7 most days,,,yea some days I may only get 3 or 4 but they are far in between.

I have a 10 mile race in 21 days!!!

Things I need to accomplish in the next 21 days:

water intake HAS GOT TO IMPROVE!! There are no IF'S, AND'S OR'S about it. I have to improve the water intake.

I need to get the eating of sugar, no nutrient, crap under control...what a day to realize this...Johnathon's bday party!! with home made banana cake and ice cream!!! Hopefully the 6 teenage boys that are here will take care of the cake...but anyways. I know what has to be done I've said it a million times and I get tired of telling myself the same crap over and over. I know it, so shut up and just do it! yes I talk and argue with myself all the time!! LOL

Meals: Meals, I have to balance them better with protein, carbs and fat. This is where I get confused and I lose focus and just plop the stuff on my plate. I guess I need to have a visual at dinner and I probably should just print out or tear out the page that is in one of my magazines that shows the break down of the plate.
I need to plan...which I do most of the time for dinner but dinner only. I kinda wing it with lunches and snacks....I don't wing it very well. I end up eating too much crap in between meals. I make out a monthly menu for dinner, I guess I could do something similar for the rest of my meals.

But then I think, am I over thinking all of this--meal planning??? My s-i-l thinks that i over think what we eat and put to much time into the meal planning...sometimes I wonder if I do?? When I do plan things out, I do better with eating UGH!!

I need to come up with a plan for August and then I'll have to come up with something entirely different for after September 8th...back to school for the kids and I go back to work!! My schedule will be totally different, no more morning runs I'll be back to afternoons and evenings when I have a free evening....back to soccer 2 to 4 times a week and cross country 5 days a week and lacrosse...if I can find my daughter a team.....oh I must enjoy this last month of summer!

    Isn't it crazy how the end of summer sneaks up on you. LOL! We started back to school on July 27th. It was sad to see the lazy days of summer come to an end, but nice to get back to the structure of the school year. I decided to change things up this year and do 6 weeks on/2 weeks off. Hopefully I won't be so totally burned out before the end of the school year. This year is going to be extra challenging as it's my first year homeschooling both kids. It's all good though. Keep up the good work. :)
