What’s your primary workout?
I am primarily a runner so my workout includes a mix of distance runs with some interval training mixed in! I have also been doing some serious kettlebell training, which I love — and do twice a week!

How long have you been working out?
I have been a committed runner for the last 2 years and haven’t looked back since!

How often do you work out?
I run 3-4 days a week. Kettlebell workouts twice a week and yoga once a week.

What’s your favorite outfit to Sweat Pink in?
I love Dryfit shorts by Nike, a good sportsbra tank (I am a c cup so I need all the support I can get!), drywick socks (to avoid blisters while running) and comfy shoes with lots of support for my arches.

What’s your favorite healthy snack and meal?
I love a salad of mixed herbs and greens, topped with some baked salmon. yum!

If you could have one cheat day where nothing counted against you, what would you eat and do?
Oh dear. I would eat biscuits and gravy with bacon and sausage for breakfast. Then go lay on the beach for a few hours while reading a book, then I would walk around and take pictures of beautiful random things. I’d have a buffulo chicken sandwich with bacon for lunch and wash that down with a milkshake. Then I would start happy hour at 4pm and drink margaritas till midnight. Dinner would be a huge italian spread with lots of pasta and chicken parmagian! dessert would be a huge plate of tiramisu! yum yum yum!

What is your biggest motivation to staying fit?
Looking at old pictures of me when I didn’t care about eating healthy or being active. **shudder** Also, as I get older my metabolism slowly decreases, so i’m basically trying to stay fit as I age.

Any advice for the beginners out there? Just know that it will not be easy. Welcome the challenge and remember to keep going. Also, it helps to have a good friend (or in my case, a fiance) who will support and motivate you.

What’s your favorite thing about blogging?
I love sharing my thoughts, experiences, and pictures with people who are looking for motivation and inspiration. I want to reach out to women who think they can’t run log distances or work out with heavy weights and give them the confidence they need to go out there and make a lifestyle change!

How do you hope to inspire people?
Lots and lots of positivity paired with an honest outlook on fitness. No, I don’t run 10 miles everyday, nor do I expect you to. I hope to inspire by being a good rolemodel and showing people that you can be active and still have a social life and eat cake and drink beers — the important part is keeping a balance.

Weekly Recap!

26 Oct

Weekly recap!

If you missed it, Guidewell posted my story of how I lost over 80 pounds the right way. Check it out!

I also did a blog swap with a Sweat Pink Ambassador sister. You can read about her journey into running here and here’s a sneak peak of mine:

A book of excuses. Could you write one? Let’s narrow it down a little. A book of excuses to not workout and take care of yourself. I bet if we got a few of us together we could come up with a big one. Here are a few that have come across my mind…

Want to see more? Well, then you have to visit her page and read the rest!

Week one is almost finished for my Early Bird Challenge. What is this? You ask. This challenge was created for people who have trouble or want to start waking up early and fitting their workout in before anything else. We are doing very well. I’ve been up at 5 every morning this week. The accountability is working! Take a look at my workout log. It’s not too late to join. Just contact me on Facebook.

Wondering what to make for supper? Check this out. It was very yummy! Time to chat! What was the highlight of your week? Are you dressing up for Halloween this weekend?

Accountability

2 Sep

If you look to your right (on the screen) you will see that I have 13 days until I run a half-marathon. 13.1 miles. 13.1 miles should not be considered “only half” of anything. I don’t think I’m the only one who thinks this. Right?

Any who-I normally run long on Sunday’s, but I woke up to some rain and thunder and figured I better stay in. If it came right down to it, I would just run the 9 miles on the treadmill (super boring), but since I have the day off tomorrow, I will run it then. Simple as pie.

I started an online workout log for you to view and enjoy. I should have done this a long time ago. I post alot of my workouts on facebook, but I thought this would be another way for me to be accountable. 

notebook

Do you log your workouts? I feel like that’s all I do. I log them through Beachbody, through work (we get points for eating healthy and working out), Myfitnesspal, and now through here. I think in order to be successful you need to let people know what you’re doing. Sometimes I feel like “they’re watching me, I better move…”  and I go and do something. If I kept this all to myself I probably wouldn’t feel guilty if I quit or didn’t try hard enough. I like to feel the pressure. That’s how I operate. 

If you’re serious about your health and fitness, whether you want to improve or maintain, you need to do what’s best for you. Take a look and ask yourself what would work best? Are you living at your full potential? Could you be feel better? Why do you keep putting it off? Do you need help? Did you know, all you have to do is ask?

I have come a long way.

19 Aug

Sunday’s are one of my favorite days. I get to go on a long run. I wake up early and head out the door. It’s a little chilly, it’s quiet, and I am all alone. I don’t get to run outside during the week. I have to get up too early for work, so it’s just me and my treadmill. When I run on the treadmill, I listen to music, and watch T.V. When I run outside I listen to an audiobook. Right now I am listening to Jane Eyre.

Running is a huge calorie burner too. I burned 913 calories this morning. That’s insane!

This morning I ran 8 miles. There are 27 days until race day. I am feeling confident and very excited. This is something I have never done before. I was NOT athletic in high school. I hated sports and never thought twice about running. I have come so far! This sounds really corny, but when I finish a long run, I almost feel like crying. Just proud of my self. That’s all.

I got to wear my new shirt today too.

I had to order it. I have been following Hal Higdon’s training plan for months and it was a little reward for myself for coming so far.

Ultimate Reset: Day 18

16 May

It is day 18. Time has certainly flown by. Breakfast was an orange and a granny smith apple. I am so grateful we have a granny smith apple tree right in our backyard. Come on fall!

Lunch was delicious. A spinach salad with tomatoes, avocado, and jicama.

Dinner was some veggies and rice. How do you cook your veggies? I love frying them in coconut oil. Try it!

20120516-204926.jpg
I have learned so much and I want to share everything with you. I want you to feel as good as I do. I want you to appreciate your food. I will be starting a challenge group soon. It will be focused on clean eating and working out. If you are interested, please contact me either here or on my Facebook by tonight. You have nothing to lose but some inches and bad habits! Start now!
