Just Can't Seem To Get It Together...

So- I have this goal- a resolution actually- to run 1000 miles in 2010. All was going well until, well, life kicked in. I have been super tired, super stressed, and super unmotivated. To make matters worse, it's cold and rainy outside. These factors, therefore, generally lead me to take refuge on my couch, under a blanket, watching reruns of the Jersey Shore.

To make matters worse, I have taken to coping with my stress by "eating my feelings!" While I'm still sticking pretty close to the Weight Watchers plan, I, admittedly, have found myself at the bottom of a bag of Cheezits (thankfully, not a Costco size bag), or gummy worms, or whatever is available, one too many times lately.

So, what's this mean? Well, first, it means that I've gained 2 pounds since before Christmas. OK, not a huge deal- I am still under my goal weight- but, I can't let it get away from me. I have definitely been down this road before where two pounds turns into 10 pounds which turns into 80 pounds.

Second, I am pacing and training for the SF Marathon and, while we are in week one of training, I need to get on the ball before the mileage starts climbing and I can't comfortably complete the miles. Oh my.

So- here's the deal. I need to recommit myself to myself. I've got to find better ways to cope with stress. I've got to get motivated to put in my miles, no matter how cold or tired I am. Now...if I just knew how to do that...
