Running down the Scale


I Run.

If you would have told me this four years ago, I would I have laughed at you.

If you would have told me this about five months ago, I would have chuckled. Running? My exercise of choice? Running, really? Over biking, or walking?

Yes.

I spent a hot summer trailing behind a friend of mine, who could go faster than me without even trying. Sweating in 98 degree heat, running, huffing and puffing.

See the thing is, for the first time in my life, weight began to fall off of me. I was on my parents diet (mostly), working, and running alot. I had never seen such good results...and trust me. I have been trying to loose weight for YEARS.

So, that is my little peace about running, will you come run with me?

Races Completed: Independence Day 8k, Veteran's 5k

My thoughts on P90x yoga

Personally, I thought it was a good workout. My ankles needing a running break so I tried it out. For those with joint problems (wrist, knee, or ankle) it was a bit challenging…but the host does offer modification.

I couldn’t do all the positions but it is a routine you must work on. My biggest caution is if you dont have yoga experience, I would try an easier routine 1st. I have a light amount of experience and the routine was a challenge.

Goal of the week: No cigarettes after drinking on Friday

I’m going to a party this Friday and I occasionally will partake in social smoking. My goal is to not smoke since my 5k is coming up soon.

70 days to drop weight until Christmas eve.

Need some motivation?
Buy a dress for Christmas that is one size or two sizes too small
Hang it up somewhere you will see it everyday
Throw away the receipt (that way there is not going back)
Alternate plan (for people who broke like me)
Find a few cute dresses online that you could afford in the future
Print out a picture of them, write the smaller dress size on the picture
Put away the money you would spend on food to save up for the dress

I wish my college offered spinning classes. I miss taking them. I’ll have to do a couple over my spring break at my hometown gym.
