I started changing things up. I am continuing to run but since I was feeling fried I knew I needed to do something. Sunday was a 6 mile run. Monday Before work I ran 3.4 miles & after work I ran another 3.5 miles & after I did a 30 minute upper body work out. I held a fore arm plank for a full minute. I have not been able to do that for a while. This morning I ran 3.4 again, but tonight I took a break. I figured if I split up my running I will fall back into wanting to run. I am adding… Continue

Burn Out

I think I am getting burned out. I like what running has done for me. I look so much leaner. But I have been pushing myself & to be honest I am bored. I am not sure if it is due to the treadmill or what but I know I need to add in some resistance training. I was planning on joining a health club through the winter months to break up the running & get some much needed upper body work. Well, I never did that for many reasons. The most obvious one is my concern I would undo all the great… Continue

What the hell is it with me & food?? I cannot stop with the Goldfish crackers or other salty snacks. I think I can relate to the cravings a heroin addict has. At least I am consistent with exercise. I try really hard to NOT let the scale dictate my mood or self worth, but it… Continue
