I've always kinda did it half ass, I'm attempting to whole ass it now. I'm 27 years old. I love food.

My trials and tribulations with food and exercise as I deal with them in everyday life.

If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.

Eat clean, healthy, mostly not out of a box and fresh is best.

half marathon training day 2

I’m still struggling to get up in the morning and workout before work…I set my alarm and fully intend to wake up every day and then when I do wake up I never remember turning off my alarm.  

It’s a constant struggle. But here’s to tomorrow!

Tonight after work I went to the gym and did a 5k on the treadmill and 10 on the elliptical. It hurt. I’m becoming aware of how badly I need new shoes and of the fact that I should always be wearing my compression socks. 

Also…2 days in a row on myfitnesspal…my personal record is 150, so it’d be nice to beat that this year! 

I’m really really struggling with my body right now, I hate it. I feel like I’ve gained so much weight in the last six months and just look so chubby and flabby. It physically kills me and then I get sad and wallow and it’s a downward spiral because instead of doing something about it, I’ll eat some candy.  So every time I workout and make a good choice I remind myself that these are the habits that got me to that place of being proud of the way my muscles stood out and how toned I look. So bring on these good habits because only good things can come from it.

Thanks again for supporting me!

half marathon training day 1

Today is technically a “rest” day on my schedule but since it was the first day I decided a little Ripped in 30 would be a good start. 

As a bonus, my parents and sisters have all decided they will also be joining me for this race so I’m expecting more support than usual.  My parents called me tonight and told me to buy them “one of those fancy water belt bottle things” I wear. So I got right on that. My favorite is the iFitness 16oz…doesn’t move, enough pockets and water…perfect for those long runs on the weekend. 

I’m also really kicking it into gear for the remaining 6 weeks of work…I’ll loosen up a bit when summer rolls around but for now, I’m watching the carbs and sugar and really focusing on tracking what I eat and drink (I’m doing no alcohol till June). 

I’m excited to finally be back on track and I finally feel like some of my motivation is returning. I would bet that it has a lot to do with this perpetual winter we’ve been having and extremely cold temperatures…the snow is almost gone and it finally feels like it’s over!

I hope everyone is having a great Monday and that you’re doing what you need to do to reach your goals.
