I love to run.
I feel like it's a drug and I can't wait to get my next fix.
Sprinting up hills makes my day ;)
I'd like to think I'm tough as nails, but don't we all?
Right now I'm on a marathon kick, I'm always looking for some kind of race. Recently I've gotten into triathlons, that's what I'll be chasing next.
Chrissie Wellington and Kara Goucher are my heroes <3
After a year of injuries in 2011 and finally recovering, I decided to take the leap and become a Personal Trainer. There's nothing more important to me than fitness and health. I would love nothing more than to achieve my goals and help others reach their maximum potential and achieve theirs as well.
My ultamite goal is to do an Ironman.
We’ve had really nice days out here and I want to order a few things I can use outside.
Do I order a:
-weighted jump rope and heavy resistance band
I want to start building a collection of awesome stuff starting with these, but I’m not sure what I should order first :/
Life is not about being thin.
Life is not about a thigh gap.
Life is not about that stupid number on a scale.
I can’t tell you how fed up I get with people who are obsessed with numbers and being skinny!
You should want to be healthy and fit. You should eat right and get lots of exercise. Go fall in love with a sport. Go do something you said you could never do, prove yourself wrong!
My own mom always says “There’s no such thing as too skinny.” She barely (if at all eats) in an attempt to lose weight. Guess what, she doesn’t. Her body holds onto every ounce it can.
You say you don’t have time, go make time! Your 2 or 3 hours of video games or tv can wait. Remember, there is always someone busier than you finding a way to work out. Create a healthy balance in your life and you won’t be sorry.
Most importantly, respect your body.
You only get one in this life.
Why destroy it?
On that note I’m going on a 10 mile run then to my weight lifting class.
I want to follow you guys!
My toe nail is FINALLY growing in normal. I’ve been missing a toe nail for 1+ month now. It turned black thanks to running, then fell off. It’s been growing in horribly slow and weird so I’ve been clipping it. It’s starting to grow in normal now. This pleases me! I’ve been dying to paint my toe nails!
I just saw the course for the Colfax Marathon in May. I’m so ready for domination!!!
Tomorrow should be a brutal gym day.
I have an hour long weight training class. You do 75+ bench presses, 125+ squats, plus all kinds of other shit. On top of that I’m doing some sprint intervals:
30 seconds at 6.0 x4 reps
30 seconds at 6.5 x4 reps
30 seconds at 7.0 x4 reps
30 seconds at 7.5 x4 reps
30 seconds at 8.0 x4 reps
30 seconds at 8.5 x4 reps
30 seconds at 9.0 x4 reps
30 seconds at 9.5 x4 reps
30 seconds at 10.0 x4 reps
And then I’ll end with some jump rope:
Sleeping in on a Sunday isn’t happening for me.
BRING ON THE TORTURE! :D
I also realize a lot of people are probably disappointed in the way they ate. Either they had a bit too much stuffing. One more slice of pie. A heaping helping of mashed potatoes.
It doesn’t matter.
Thanksgiving is over. Tomorrow is a new day.
You may not have eaten well tonight, but relax, it was one day. One day isn’t going to kill you. Just wake up tomorrow and start over. Start fresh. Eat clean. Be happy.
I am SO glad my breakfast ended up being 735 calories.
I killed myself at the gym for 3 hours, but now I’m super hungry.
The most HYSTERICAL thing happened though.
I spend an hour on the spin bike doing intervals, it gets me sweating, builds great muscle, it’s great cardio, and burns the calories.
Well the guy next to me sounded like he was making love to the spin bike:
“*manly groan* *moan* *moan* YES! YES! *moan*”
I tried not to die laughing the entire time.
In his defense he was doing some intense shit and was pouring sweat. Still funny though.
“Never fuck with a woman that runs 26.2 miles for fun.”
