Well another month has come and gone and so ends another monthly GTD (Going The Distance) challenge. These challenges, put together by Robby (@FatGirlvsWorld), are a great way to stay focused all month. They are also a fantabulous way to become part of group of people that will support you every step of the way. You see, these challenges are not set to pit one person against another, but they are there for you to challenge yourself. You can sign up here (http://tinyurl.com/35cmd3p), then get yourself on Twitter and follow all the great people. If you need help, I’ll lend a hand. So get on board for this month's DecGTD and become part of something special.
My NovGTD was a slow start followed by a rush to finish strong. The month began with me feeling a bit down about only having a 5 pound loss for the month of Oct. So the first week of Nov was filled with all my crap about is this really worth all the hard work and I ate too much and complained too much blah blah blah. I almost had to get the violin out a few times. I also started to develop blisters (big Mofo’s) in my armpit and that hurt like hell, so that kept the workouts to a minimum and definitely no running. After being kicked in the ass by most my fellow bloggers (I love those peeps), the second week went a bit better. The third and fourth weeks went ok as well but I ended up with only 85.4 miles on the month. I was short again of my goal of 100 miles running/walking in a month. You know what though, I was fine with that. Sure I want to hit that goal, but other than the first week (only 13 miles logged) I really kicked ass to pull out a strong finish.
I’m about to do my monthly weight in for November and I must say I am not looking forward it. But even if I did gain, I know it’s just one month in a long journey and I will get back on track. I am so far health wise from where I was this past March and I have no complaints about that.
Next up….My monthly weight in.
