It ain't over till the lean man sings!

So says the fitness trainer of a bootcamp workout I've been doing lately! He's so right! It's been a whole week since the Half Marathon and I've been SUCH a slacker! I did NOTHING...seriously all last week! Not even weights, nothing. By Friday, I felt like the HUGEST blob on the block! lol Not to mention that our Doctor bought us CHOCOLATE last week and I ate WAY TOO MUCH of it! After feeling guilty about it that entire night and the next day, I'm excited to say that I RESISTED CHOCOLATE...whoa...did I just say that out loud? for the rest of the week! Woohoo!

Friday afternoon, my whole goal for myself was to take a very loooooong nap. I did just that! After getting home around 1 p.m. from work, I slept from 2-5 p.m. THREE HOURS! Woohoo! Of course I didn't feel like doing anything when I woke up and I had plans to get up and run Saturday morning so I did a bunch of nothing until 9 p.m. and I went to sleep! Well, Saturday morning rolled around and my alarm went off at 5 a.m. and what did I do? I got up, brushed my teeth, groaned at how early it was, and I WENT BACK TO BED! Do you know how long it's been since I've slept in on a Saturday morning in my own bed?! AGES! So that of course felt amazing. I slept until 9 a.m. (for a grand total of TWELVE hours of sleep!)! I must have been TIRED! lol

Needless to say, I didn't run...instead, I went to Texas with my parents to a flea market and to see my brother/sister in law. I knew come Sunday, I HAD to do something, so I pulled out my fitness videos I got for Christmas and I worked out! That's when I heard the phrase "It ain't over till the lean man sings". He also talked about how WE are the ones who control our bodies...what goes in and how hard we work them and he's right. I decided from then on that I kind of like the idea of being in control of my own body..of my eating habits..of how much/often I work out! I had already decided I was going to stop biting my nails a few weeks ago and I'm doing fabulous with that one...I'm working on week 3! lol I'm also trying to be careful of what I eat/drink. I LOVE me some sweet tea but the sugar content is so bad for you! From now on, I think I'll get unsweet tea and just use Spelnda in it instead. I know it doesn't taste the same but it's better for me at least! I'm trying to get that way with chocolate. I did good today. Hoping I can keep that up!

So anyway, this morning, I got up EARLY (woohoo!) and I did my fitness video again. Then tonight, I ran 2 miles with Madalynn! First run since the half! Felt great! That girl keeps me GOING! She's so fast!!! We were running between a 7.4-8.5 pace the entire time! We walked a few times because she was wearing me out! lol One particular time is when she saw this HUGE black dog coming towards us and I had to pick her up and walk a ways. I really love running with her! She's so much fun!!! :0) I felt like I got an interval workout tonight! lol


  1. great job on the workouts!

    ah chocolate. Not to mention the chocolate my parents gave yall haha. I haven't even opened mine yet. But I know I will soon.

  2. Haha I haven't even touched that one yet either!!! lol

  3. Awesome job on the workouts! I love that saying! You deserve a Saturday every once in a while to sleep in, much less not have to wake up until 9 instead of 5. Yikes!

    It was great seeing you too!

  4. Congrats on getting back on your fitness schedule. I've been sick with a hacking cough and can't wait for it to subside so I can get back to boot camp in New Orleans.
