Where I am now, and where I want to be in 14 weeks

14 weeks because that's when the Las Vegas Half Marathon is.

emoticon 226 or so lbs.
emoticon XL, 33, 14 clothing sizes
emoticon Can't run a full 15 minutes without a break
emoticon Still having stomach pains

As far as I'm concerned, the clock is ticking on these.

I want to be:
emoticon Able to run - I want to finish the half marathon in about 3 hours. That doesn't mean run the whole time. It means much more endurance. If I can run/jog for a full 90min, I will be happy.

emoticon I would love to be closer to Onederland again. I am not going to focus on this though. It is more of a side effect of the running.

emoticon Food wise, I need to figure out all that I need to deal with nutritionally. I know I need to be gluten free. I've also discovered sugar is not good for me - I have horrible reactions to sugar. Pork is also on my no list. I want to find out what else I should avoid, or at least limit in my diet. That means getting back on the cleansing diet 100% so I can follow through with the testing.

emoticon There is no dollar sign emoticon, so I'll use a star. I am starting on a journey to build my retirement savings. I want to see some progress there. I also will want to have some $$ to spend in Vegas.

emoticon I know, it's more part of my nutrition, but I need to get back up to my full hydration/electrolyte balance for training

So, now I've clearly defined where I am, and where I want to be. Unfortunately, there is a time line on this too. Luckily, I have a 12 week half marathon training program. I also will need to get much more strict with my nutrition/hydration, but I'm sure I can do it.

Now it's time to lay out the steps to get from here to there.
