I have goals, but I am more interested in seeing results in the form of a healthier body. Talk to me, follow me, join in my journey to a better lifestyle!

Remember: when running outside in the summer during daylight hours, BRING WATER. And wear sunblock.

Don’t be stupid. Don’t be me.

I am much more used to running in the evening or doing overcast days. I also went for 3.1 miles, which is the farthest I’ve gone outside before!

Leg began to kill on the return, so the last third was all walking- poop. But I have my physical on Tuesday so hopefully I can do something to stop the pain.

Fun Fact: I really had to pee when I got back, but I was so sweaty I nearly slid off the toilet seat.

A week of accomplishments

On Monday when I went to the gym with my sister, I was able to run for a full 8 minutes at 4.4 miles per hour. I’ve never been able to run for more than 5 minutes at a time so all I can say is woah. 

Then today, I went on a run with my sister. We run along a local running/biking path that is right by our house. The first stretch from the entrance we use to the next street crossing/intersection is about .27 miles (according to google). For the first time ever, I was able to run that entire stretch without stopping.

It’s a real difference exercising with someone else. I just see her running and keeping her pace, and I just want to beat her. Lol that’s sibling rivalry for you, but at least it’s working for my advantage!

Hell Yeah 400 Pound Athlete →

I’m a body-positive kick today. This is AMAZING. This guy is a true athlete and proves that size is not always correlated to health.

Passed the 20 Mile Mark!

Did 35 minutes on the treadmill today and got my average pace down to 16:14! By the end of the semester, I think it’d be cool to be around 15:00 or so- and I think it’d be possible, too!

My class got canceled this morning because the teacher was a no-show. Went to the gym instead!

One TV was playing CNN, the other was playing Dora. That’s an art school gym for ya, I guess. I was waiting for someone to yell along with Dora but I was sadly disappointed :( The guy in front of my dropped his iphone, which shot back— and he kept running. It was fine and he apparently drops it all the time so there were no new cracks.

Right now I’m eating an apple with peanut butter. Gonna take a shower and then get started on some of my art homework. Work at 3 and then free for the rest of the day—- free to do all my homework and reading. Yay.

Super Awesome Day!

I can apparently run about a 15/16 minute mile. I remember in grade school, during gym when we had to run a mile, I was always the last one to finish, OR I remember a couple times where the gym teacher took pity on me and didn’t make me finish the last laps.

And I added another 1.83 miles to my tracker! I’ve fallen behind a bit (I should be closer to 20 miles) but oh well! I’m still getting into the hang of being back at school and I haven’t gone to the gym as much as I would like.

School itself has been nice. I do my work-study at the library, and I sorta forget over winter break how much squatting, bending, and heavy lifting it entails XD Seriously though, some of our books are HUGE and I always grab at least 5-7 of the big books when I’m shelving. 

I think I’m also definitely starting to see a difference in the way my clothes fit. I was almost certainly wearing clothes that were too small because I didn’t want to admit to myself that I had gained weight or anything. Now everything fits really well, and some things are even loose! My go-to skinny jeans are for sure looser than ever before.

I just keep thinking about how I was a year ago and just how much I have changed. I am so much happier than I can ever remember being. I like myself- which is not something I ever thought I would say and actually mean. I have actual friends. I like all my teachers (please, there are no ‘professors’ in art school) and my classes. I have friends. I’m getting along with my roommates a lot better than last year or even last semester. Everything is going so well for me right now, and it’s just really great to be able to say that.

Haha this ended up being a lot longer than I intended. I have class again at 7 so I’m gonna go grab something to eat. Be happy, be healthy, folks!

This is why I recommend making your own smoothies and protein bars! REALLY easy recipes online, and protein bars are awesome are cooked or raw.

For bread…Ezekiel 4:9 is my staple. Seriously.
