I LOVED reading the comments from the last post about the scale. You guys truly are fabulous. FYI I read every single comment on every single post (so does Billy and my mom:) and they all mean so much to me. THANK YOU!!
Corey @ Runners Cookie said, “Running also helped me a ton on this – once I began seeing myself as an athlete instead of a workout-to-be-skinny person, a lot of things changed.”
This is something that has happened with me too. I love running and working out so much more than when I did it just for weight loss. How about we all focus in on bringing out our natural athlete’s and forget about working out to be size x or weigh x amount of lbs. By channeling our inner athletes we will want to work out more and we won’t dread it so much. Having a hot bod without even thinking about it will just be the added bonus from all of our athletic endeavors:)
Yesterday’s workout was a 6 mile recovery run with Mary Ann. It rocked. It was 54 degrees out and my Garmin ran out of batteries so we were just running according to how we wanted too and talking the whole time. Shorts and shorts sleeves….I could get used to this.
We had some Sunny D when we made it back to the running store and stretched.
When I got home Billy was still taking a test?!?! I thought for sure he would be home before me, so I decided to hang out with Jillian and do some yoga, my muscles are sore and I am hoping yoga will loosen them up because today’s workout is going to be a tough one!
Anyone want to come organize my house for me?
Billy came home half-way through my yogafying, took a picture and jumped on the treadmill. He uses a program where Jillian talks to you as you workout……basically, Jillian’s voice was all over our tiny house (between the treadmill and my yoga) yelling at us to be more tough.
Tough we are.
We followed our workout with chocolate milk and glutamine.
Then I took a shower. Okay, that is a huge lie, I was hungry and food takes precedence over hygiene any day in my book.
We had baked ziti (I just cooked noodles, mixed it with red sauce and covered with cheese and threw it in the oven for a little while) with spinach salads on the side. Noodles, cheese and marinera sauce make me a very happy girl. Oh and so does an after dinner bowl of rocky road ice cream with added M&M’s.
After dinner we were the super cool people that we are and organized socks.
Wow, we have turned into 90 year olds.
For some reason Billy doesn’t like the fact that somehow 90% of his socks ended up in my dresser. Why can’t we just share socks….my feet are only a little bit bigger than his. Why did I just admit that for the world to see?
Do you organize your socks?
-This is the first time ever. Seriously, I just throw them all into a drawer and pick out the lucky winners randomly each day.
Do you ever do workout DVD’s at home?
-I lasted with P90X for .4 (I am a wimp) of a workout but I love doing any of Jillian Michael’s DVD’s!
What size shoe do you wear?
-Running shoes 10-10.5, real life shoes 9.
Any super easy dinner ideas that you want to share with me pretty please?!?!
