The Weekly Pursuit #31

Happy Monday! I’m hopeful for a good week, as last week didn’t go so well for me. Especially so on Saturday when I had to send my sweet parakeet girl to the Rainbow Bridge. As I sit here writing this, my lovebird Indy is watching me. He misses her just as much as I do. Indy hasn’t known life without his sister, Angel. It’s going to be a little rough for him, but I know with lots of love he will get through it.

Sunday morning run with friends Natalie & Lourdes.

This past weekend was meant to be a very different one for me. I was supposed to leave for South Florida on Saturday morning for the A1A Ft. Lauderdale Half Marathon the next day. It would have been the second race I ran for BibRave as a Pro. I was very much looking forward to the race as well as seeing a few other BibRave Pros that were also running the race. Unfortunately, life doesn’t always go according to plan. I wouldn’t have wanted to be anywhere else but with my Angel bird on Saturday. Races come and go, but family, feathered or not, are once in a lifetime.

On the good side of the coin, I’ve got another race this coming weekend. I will be pacing the Disney Princess Half Marathon on Sunday morning. After having missed pacing and running the WDW Half Marathon in January, this is another chance to run at Disney and help some fellow runners get to the finish line. I’ve also never run the Princess Half Marathon, and I’m excited to get that chance. It is a race that has been on my “race bucket list.”

Also, I struggled toward the end of last week with my food. I was a bit off with my food logging, but I knew I was still pretty good calorie-wise. That was until Saturday when I ended up buying a couple of ‘cheat’ foods that I told myself I would stay away from until I reached my goal weight again. I know it has to do with my emotions after losing my bird, but I don’t like to make excuses for emotional eating. Sadly, I think it’s something I will find myself working on and battling for the rest of my life. Just how it goes.

But, I got back up yesterday and am on the wagon to success again. Just because I have food issues or what have you for a day or two doesn’t mean I shouldn’t regain my power over it and get back on the fitjourney the next day. It’s a learning experience and I always learn something from those tough moments. I’m not perfect, and I never will be. You just get back up, dust yourself off and get moving.

That all said, I’m focusing this Weekly Pursuit post on success and getting back on the fitjourney road. I’m going to post this week’s goals and let last week be last week…it’s the past and focusing on it isn’t what I want to do right now. I’m strong and going to achieve my goals!
