Well you can just disregard the last post...I had to return my runners! They were really awesome but a half size too small. Wednesday night I tried them out...which by the way, running on the treadmill was a fuckin dream...I ran for 8 mins straight! No joke...it was like I was running in memory foam. What a treat...so I managed to get my entire workout in, including my weight training, then I walked home in them just to be sure. And yes, when I got home my feet were being squished together at the bottom. I knew as much as I LOVED them, there is no way I could keep them. I need comfort if I'm gonna start running outside...not blistered feet. Remember the feeling after skating for a few hours, after taking off your skates...how weird your feet felt...that's how I felt when I took them off. Booooooo! So back to the drawing board for running shoes. That's ok though, I love shopping for runners! I told my husband I want to own 5 pairs of runners! LOL He laughed at me, of course. Maybe when they come back to Costco, I'll grab the 9.5's at first glace! I won't miss out next time for sure!
So good workout yesterday. I'm finding it a challenge to get that 60 mins of cardio in daily. I work 'til 4 most days, sometimes 415p, then by the time I get down to the gym and change, it's already 430p...I've been 45 mins in, it's just after doing my cardio I really want to get a good weight session in not to mention Abs. Abs are a must...so after doing all that, it's just after 530p....then I have another 30 min walk home...I guess essentially my walk home could count in that 60 mins couldn't it. lol I never really thought of that. Huh...so there ya go. I like to leave the gym around 530p...so that I'm home for 6pm to have dinner with my husband. He shouldn't have to have a later dinner just cause I'm working out right?!
So I'll be getting my measurements take tomorrow. I'm excited and a bit nervous too. I had one week that I feel I sorta fucked up. The week we had the pup...I didn't work out. And I'll tell ya I felt it. I felt like shit all week, tired, annoyed and to be honest a bit deppressed. Weird eh. My body used to getting that exercise and when I wasn't working out I just didn't feel like myself. I totally get it now! I really do.
My life has changed, my decisions are taken more seriously. Well, when it comes to what I put in my mouth. Some days are harder than others, but the result I'm seeing are so good. And you know, I FEEL awesome...and I owe it all to The Eat Clean Diet. I do, honestly, Tosca Renos books, her blog, her site...has motivated me to find me. I know it might sound cliche, but all these years of just eating and over indulging did NOTHING for me...but keep me out of the clothing stores I love, being envious of friends and other people life and fitness. Thank god I am outgoing and pretty confident, even at 260lbs. Cause I would have been a lost cause. The one thing about me and being fat was that I still love myself, I know I'm am/was a good person, and I know I am loved my others. But when I look in the mirror and old pictures I don't see who I really am. I can't wait to see the reflection of the real me.
She's coming...she'll be here soon!
