My best run ever!

I ran today, just like I was supposed to go for a run.  I decided I would listen to my music and just let my body dictate how my run when.  I was in a super "don't wanna" mood.  So I thought for sure I would be walking in no time.  I put my music in and my phone in my pocket with mapmyrun running.  And as the 5 min increments ticked away I just kept going.  My inspiration songs came on just when I seemed to need them the most and I ran for 30 mins without stopping!  I have never run for 30 mins without stopping.  I have never run 2.5 miles without stopping.  And yet today I did both of those things.  I have been stopping and starting for so many years and to finally accomplish this just feels so great.  I have not decided if I am going to shred tonight or not but will post again if I do.  The big thing was to put down my thoughts and pride in myself about what I accomplished.  I'm thankful for friends and family being supportive and for the Train like a mother series to give me the tools and encouragement to get it done.  At the end of my run a pinterest motivation popped in my head "Now punch that Laziness in the face and have a great day!"  I tried to post it but they have changed how they do it :(  I'm not sure but will work to figure out how to post them again.

Bike ride!

I got on my bike today.  I haven't ridden in months.  Probably not since last fall.  So my bottom for sure needs to get used to it.  We did 42 mins and rode 7.5 miles.  It is less than I wanted for distance but good for time.  And I did not shred today.  I was feeling dizzy and tired so I took the time to spend with my family and take care of my beautiful sick baby.  But I still got a workout in and stayed under on calories!  So I am pushing myself.  I am going to keep rockin the workouts and going to reach my goal before we move.  Goal would be to reach the 130's before we move in July.  Had some carbs today and a yummy paleo taco salad for dinner.  Feeling good about tomorrow.

Day 3 complete :)

I am rockin' this!!  I did great with my eating even if my "calories" are low.  I ate paleo and honestly don't feel hungry.  I was oh so tempted this morning while making the kids some toast to induldge.  But I didn't.  I had ham and eggs for breakfast with some coffee.  I had steak and hard boiled eggs for lunch.  And dinner was a yummy lemon artichoke chicken with green beans and salad.  I had a few strawberries too :).  Overall a great day.  Did day 3 of the 30 day shred and am feeling good.  I did not do extra cardio today since I had Kaitlynn all day and she was sick poor baby.  But I hope to get on my bike tomorrow for a ride probably about 60 mins and do day 4 of the shred :).  I also caught up on laundry (4 loads done) and went to the dr and grocery store.  A very productive day.  I was 162.7 this morning...

Day 2

Day 2 done!  I am so proud of me!  I had a yummy omelet this morning with spinach, eggs, mushrooms, and ham with a side of strawberries and raspberries.  I had a luna bar before my run this afternoon then ran 2.5 miles in 30 mins.  This is a great time for me as I am getting faster.  Average was 12 min/mile.  Then came home and made flank steak from the body for life book, artichokes, and broccoli.  Ate a few strawberries :) and made my steak and broccoli lunch for tomorrow.  A few hardboiled eggs for a snack for tomorrow and deviled eggs for DH.  I had 2 :) to make sure they weren't poison haha.  Overall a very healthy paleo day with two great workouts.  Might not walk well tomorrow but I will keep pushing because I am worth it.  Going to bed early tonight so I can get more sleep.  Feeling better than I have in weeks.

30 Day shred day 1

I really just need to force myself to make this change.  I can keep making excuses or I can get my butt going.  I keep praying the motivation will come and it just doesn't.  So that just means I have to do it regardless.  Right now I am going to do the shred for 30 days, clean up my eating and probably some extra cardio in the mornings.  After that I will do ripped in 30 and then we have to move/live in a hotel. At that point I will have to figure something else out.  I should be working on base though so hopefully I will get more workout time and can do some weights in the gym.  If I really clean up my eating I can lose 20-30 pounds in the next 60 days.  I really have to clean up my eating though.  What I am currently doing is so not going to get me the body I am looking to achieve.  Moving to hot weather means I want to wear clothes that aren't so good at hiding.  I don't like shorts because I have fat thighs and they ride up and chaff.  So the cure, is to lose weight so I can be comfy in shorts and tank tops.  So here is to lack of motivation but lots of determination to not let my motivation push me around anymore.  Here is to getting off my 165 pound butt and doing something about it instead of wishing it would just happen.  Thinking of doing a shake in the morning, fast and healthy and gets me some nutrition before I do some cardio.  Weekends I can do more paleo friendly breakfasts.  I am going to wean off of the carbs.  I know that my body hates them and I feel better when I am not stuffing my face with them.  I know all the things to do to achieve my goal.  I just have to stop talking myself out of it and start talking myself into healthy living.

The morning run

So this morning I was determined to go for a run. I needed it. And I was going to try to run more than I walked. Well success was achieved. I ran for 15 mins, took a 1 min walk and then finished another 15 min run. It felt so great! I just need to keep pushing.
