A quest for health and fitness continues with P90X, Shaun T's Insanity, the Pittsburgh Marathon, and now a sub-2 hour half marathon!

I am proud to report that I am almost at a full 2 weeks of food journaling. That might not sound like a big accomplishment to the really diligent people out there, but this is a huge accomplishment for me. I tend to fall off the wagon on the weekends and estimate instead of journaling. But this past weekend, I was completely honest and I tracked everything I put in my mouth. This is especially important on those days when I burn 1700 calories running! Like I've mentioned before, when I ran the New Jersey Marathon in 2005, I gained weight. And no, it wasn't because I got more muscular! It was because I ate burritos, ice cream, wings, fries, etc. I felt entitled, and let's be honest. No one is entitled to eat that. It's poison! I've come a long way in 5 years, and I'm determined to make this a healthy marathon training season. These two weeks are a big step toward that! I'm definitely one to splurge here and there, but within reason, I think that's great! I even had a brownie yesterday. :) It was yummy! I can tell the journaling and running is working though. I'm feeling more toned, fit, and tight. Love it!
Today's workout is going to be one of the Phase 1 Insanity workouts. I'm thinking some plyo will be fun and good for me. I did my weighted workout yesterday. My long run (9 miles) is on Saturday and then I'll do some yoga on Sunday.
