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.

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?

Weigh your Grapes

12 Jul

I am all about my routines as you know. I had to slip away from my run this morning, which irks me. My hamstrings are still yelling at me. Not as bad as yesterday, but I didn’t feel like going for a slow, agonizing run. So, I slept in until a quarter to 6, which felt good I must say! When I miss a scheduled morning workout, I feel bad and my day seems to shift out of place. Then, the worst thing happened. I screwed up my peanut butter oatmeal. I have no idea what I did, but I screwed it up, and I had to make a new batch. Grrr!

Are you a slave to your food tracker, measuring cups and spoons, food scale? I am! And I am proud of it! I track my food with myfitnesspal. If you want to lose weight or monitor your nutrition this stuff is essential! Don’t eyeball your food, majority of the time you are going way over a serving size.

What else? Oh! Water! Do you drink enough? No? Why? You need lots of water. I hate cold water. I like it at room temp and I pretty much only drink it out of my trusty tumbler. Yeah, the same one too. My other tumbler just feels all
wrong…

So happy when I have a package at the post office. Especially when it’s from Vitacost! Love this site! I order alot of my goodies from here. They have everything from cleaning products to chia seeds.

If you are interested in ordering, let me know. I can refer you and we will both get $10.00!

So, after writing this I feel all wimpy about not running. I am going to hit the foam roller and then run! Thanks for the push 🙂
