Thank you Ms. Spears for fueling my workout today. I have been wondering why I have a mental block when it comes to running. I mean seriously..I can’t even run for a full mile without thinging that I am going to die and I have to stop. Well today I was just at the point where I was giving up and I heard “It’s Brittany bi*ch” and it was on…I ran 1.5 miles. This is a big deal to me…like really big because I have am determined to run a full 5k the next time I sign up…well..not when I sign up but for the actual 5k. Monica @ Run, Eat, Repeat thinks I need to just get into my run…I think I did that today…I was on a
run roll…then the song ended and I couldn’t get back to it:(
I hate spending money on iTunes and I am not savy enough to find out how to get a deal on songs to put on my iPod. The playlist I have is from a C25K podcast I used to listen to…it is all Brittany…what is weird..I am not the biggest fan of hers. I totally love her dancing ability but she isn’t one of my favs…until recently. She has helped me through a few runs…Rhianna is also a big helper. When phone was working I used to put on Pandora and
run rock out to a Rhianna channel…if anyone has any tips on the music I would greatly appreciate it!!!
Body for Life is coming along well. I think my body is getting used to eating every 2 1/2 hours…and adjusting to it well. I started less then a week ago but, I know this is crazy, I feel stronger…I feel good.
I do have a confession…I am super afraid that I am going to gain weight. The last few times I tried to lose weight…I ended up gaining instead of losing. In the last year I have gained a total of 40 lbs and I feel like it was all in an atempt to lose the weight. I guess we’ll see..and yes I am very afraid that I will gain muscle and just look bigger.
After ballet today, we headed to the gym. I spend about 5 minutes warming up and then I was on the treadmill for about 25 min…then 5 minutes for stretching..have i mention how much I love the ballet bar???
Breakfast: french toast, coffee and water
Snack: Luna bar (chocolate peppermint stick..my FAV), water
Lunch: chicken breast on WW toritlla with brown spicy mustard..about 5 potato chips…luckily, lil b heard me crinkle the bag…she stole them away…I washed it all down with some water
Snack: apple and cheese stick and maybe some water
Dinner: just finished a bowl of chili..I got the recipe from the BFL website..I topped it with some reduced fat cheddar and a dollop of chobani plain yogurt…it was a bit spicey so I drank lots of water…
Things are going well….I am planning a 10:00am yoga class at the gym tomorrow and some lower body work!! Can’t wait to get my yoga on!!!
