This past week, my focus has mainly been on getting my kids back into the swing of school and working out. Usually, the busier life gets, the more excuses I come up with to blow off exercise. Not this week! This girl has rocked my 5k training AND my yoga AND my muscle toning.
It feels almost like the day isn’t done until I have put in some exercising. And as a result, I have dropped 9 pounds in two weeks! I normally dread the scary scale, but not this time. I am pretty proud of myself and more motivated than ever!
So, just a little advice from this chunky monkey…keep going! Don’t give up, and you will start seeing results!
A funny story about running. When I run, I blast Snoop Dog. I’m not a big Snoop Dog fan, but I’ve noticed that it’s easier to run with his music playing in my ears. As the music plays, everything and everyone disappears. At the track where I run sometimes, there is a little house on the other side of the fence. There are probably 10 people who reside in this very VERY small house. One person in particular is this man about 70. I was running my little heart out, and getting bored, I started to dance a little while I ran. He happened to be sitting on his porch smoking. When I finally noticed him, he was pressing his face against the fence, watching me and waving for me to come over to him. I ran over, and with a giant grin on his face, he asked, “Are you married?”
I forced out a laugh and replied, “It’s complicated.”
His reply nearly floored me. He asked, “When it’s not so complicated, will you marry me?” I nearly choked from laughing. I shook my head and continued my run. Now, every time I run there, this little old man winds up sitting on his porch watching.
Anyways, here is a picture from this morning. I don’t know if you can see any results, but I can definitely feel the results! Good luck on your journey and take it one day at a time! 🙂
