New week, new goals!!

I only have 5 days left on my current challenge and I am determined to finish strong! For this week my meals will remain on plan and for my training, I am taking it to the streets! Monday through Thursday my goal is to walk 8 -10 miles each day and Friday is my rest day as it's the day we fly out to Hong Kong!!

Looking forward to posting my results!!

Somedays you just have to take a deep breath and move on.

Good gracious this day was hard. Sometimes you just have to put your hands in the air, take a deep breath and move on. It's funny how when you put things in perspective even that hardest day can seem like nothing at all.

We have so much to be thankful for. Truly!

Hoping for a good day tomorrow. I am seeing a new doctor who I hope can shed some light on the current heath issues I am dealing with. We will see.

Press on guys. We've got this.

Let's try this again....

As most of you know I have been posting on FB and IG far more than my website as of late. Maybe it's because we have moved to Singapore and I am remembering all my blogs from Norway and Russia or maybe it's time I increase my accountability...not sure which, but I need to start blogging again. This period in my life is a struggle to say the least. I am NOT losing as I once was despite all my efforts here and something has to change. I am dealing with some hormonal and metabolism issues and we are trying to get it sorted out.  For those of you who are not on Fb and do not know I am currently doing W30 again and it was going well the first week then nothing....stuck, and then I started gaining again. This past week I completed over 40 miles only to see the scale go up once again. It breaks my heart but Ive been here before and I am not giving up.

This week I am changing my program slightly. I am still following W30 but switching some things to include a hormone reset. No red meat, no caffeine, increased fat...a few things to see if it helps. As far as my training, I am keeping it simple. Lots of walking this week with light ST. I am trying to see if giving my body a break will help.

At the end of all of this at least I can say I did all that I could....
