One girl's quest to actually get off the couch...

10K out of the way!

Well I did it!!

I ran my 10K in 1hour 2min

I was so nervous about running…only to find that all my hard work and dedication really paid off when afterwards it felt, well, easy.

Now on to training for my 15K and Half Maraton!

Updates!

Why hello my BEAUTIFUL fitblrs!

I’m happy to have a great update for everyone…

I am officially a SIZE 6!!!!!!!!!!!!

-I am literally HALF of what I used to be, a size 12/14

This has been my goal throughout the entire process!

To be honest if feels even better to have reach this goal by not obsessing over my food intake.

I just make healthy choices, never feel guilty, and run my butt off each week.

Simply on cloud nine.

Makes me Stronger.

I think I’ve finally hit that place in my training where running no longer tires me out in the same way.

Rather than being completely out of breath and unable to take another step by the end of my daily miles, I feel refreshed and normal during the entire run.

Its my body’s endurance that matters now.

I can breath fine. I can go as far as my legs will take me. Which is getting longer each day.

But for the first time in my life I feel like an athlete, conditioning and taking care of my body to get it to the highest level possible.

I must admit…it feels…pretty awesome.

Bigger than my Body.

Now having lost 30+ lbs my body has obviously changed.

I see it. I feel it. And now others in my family and friend circles have begun to notice too.

But I find that accepting myself, even this small, is difficult.

I thought that when I lost this weight, when I got to the same weight or size of the beautiful celebrities I admire then I’d automatically look like them.

But what I had to realize is…thats never going to happen.

Because I am my own woman. With my own body type

A body type that regardless of how much weight I gain or loose, I genetically will have for the rest of my life. So I need to accept and love it for what it gives me, and appreciate it for the flaws it possesses. 

Because only then will I finally look like those stunning girls…because I’ll have the confidence they personify each day.

This is INCREDIBLE. I am 1.8 lbs from my UGW and still working on training for my half marathon in February!

Plus yesterday I ran 4 MILES. Which is the farthest I’ve ever ran…so I’m a bit on cloud nine today!

Good luck to all those working on getting healthier and more fit!

Transition.

I recently made a huge transition.

For the past year I’ve been living 1,000 miles away from my home, family, and friends. A year that I’ve been blessed to have really made a healthy and positive change in my life through diet and exercise.

Recently I’ve chosen to move back to my roots and start Graduate school to earn my masters degree! As exciting as this is, believe me I’m STOKED, I now find myself back in the toxic life that lead me down my old road of unhealthy habits.

I feel like I’m starting over again. Having to find my new schedule, new ways to find the food I like and want, plus a new balance of my social, school, and professional life.

I can’t say its been easy. But I can say its getting easier. I’m finally at a confident level with myself that I am comfortable to stand up for what I want. And what I want is my health.

So here’s to the next 2 years of my life, may it be filled with things that push me, love me, and overall make me better.

WE GOT THIS.

"I’m training."

Two words I NEVER thought I’d hear myself say about anything…ever.

But alas I am training. For a 10K and Half Marathon!

The 10K is in November, can you say Turkey Trot? 

And the Half Marathon is in February…I say I’m training for both because the training overlaps and even after my 10K I’ll continue to work towards the Half Marathon.

I truly love running. I always feel like a total bad ass when I pass people on the street and afterwards. Plus there is nothing like the feeling of laying on you bedroom floor after you just had an incredible run!

So I think since I’m so darn close to my UGW I’m going to shift this to both a tumblr about my training and weight loss.

So lets do this!

KEEP RUNNING.

Monday Weigh Day!

Hello!

I know its been a while, to be honest I hit a mean plateau and didn’t want to bring everyone else down…BUT it is finally gone!

CW: 158.0 lbs!

AMAZING! The lowest yet!

And to make matters even better, yesterday I ran my FIRST 5K! I was able to complete the entire race, never stopping!

I’ll make a runner out of me!

So I’ve always really enjoyed running…and its always been a dream of mine to some day be in good enough shape to run a Marathon!

Since I’m far from being at that level yet, I’ve officially registered to run in my first 5K! Its June 17th aka exactly 25 days away! I have a training plan all worked out and can’t wait to start it up soon!

KEEP RUNNING.

Here is the comparison of my old shorts, size 12, and current size 8!

Since reaching my first Goal Weight I decided to upload a progress picture!
They don’t show the details of my body, but you can definitely see the differences in my size overall!
This has helped me stay on track so much lately!
