Back at it - Running!

Today was my first day back out on the road. It was rough… I did about 2 miles running (very slowly) but I’m proud of myself because honestly I woke up craving bad food but I thought about it and told myself if I went outside and did something physical I would probably crave better food… and I did!

So, slow or not… I did it.

Who am I kidding, I don't run but I thought this was funny.

My long term goal as I said before is to do the Disney Princess Half in February, but to be able to really train for the half I need to work up my  mileage. Today I did a little over two, by August I need to be at 5 comfortably, and I need to be running three days a week consistently. Challenge- yes. But it’s a challenge I think I can handle. 

Stay tuned for when I really get going and have some insight to share! And remember these words…

Remember this when you want to snooze that 5:00 am alarm.

I have actually been on a huge smoothie kick recently! and when I don’t have the time to make them at home I go to Jamba Juice on campus, my recent favorite has been a light Strawberry Surf Rider…. mmmm so delicious and this picture makes me think of it.. #sogood

I don’t aim to be this small by any means, I just like pictures like this, it’s photographic and artistic and it shows you a behind the scenes look at an industry everyone is fascinated with, so whats not to like?

So.. I’ve regressed. I feel like poop but if I’m being honest the reason is because I’ve just gotten comfortable and I’m with a man who doesn’t judge me for it and loves my body the way it is, so who can really complain about that? But it’s been so hard to get back into the groove of things because I don’t have a real push. Last year and the year before were the two fittest years of my life. I had goals and I worked for them and I reached them and I was super proud of myself. The problem recently has been that my goal has just been to lose weight. So I’ve found myself another fitness related goal. Something to strive for and be proud of again. Also…ya know, bikini season is helping a little bit haha

So this is it!!

…SO. EXCITED.

Stay tuned to see my progress with half marathon training!

Happy Monday :)
