Getting back into the groove

Hello all!

I have been slowly getting back into the groove of real exercise! I have been watching what I am putting into my mouth and making sure I keep moving all day. Burn those calories!! :)

I am still doing the whole run/walking thing. The other day I ran 2, walked one, ran 2, walked one, ran 4, walked one and then ran 4.5, walked one. I am talking about minutes here, people...not miles! Ha, I wish! I will get there one day....

I am working out with my personal trainer 2x a week. Tuesday or Wednesday mornings at 5AM and Saturday's at 8AM. People, this means I am in the gym no later than 4:25 in the morning doing my cardio and small exercises before my training session begins. Dedication, I tell you! I need a prize for this. Oh wait, my prize (hopefully) will be looking AMAZING in my wedding dress. Some days that is the only thought that gets me outta bed at 4AM to be honest with all of you.

On a completely random note... I got my belly button pierced as a Senior in high school and up until 2 mornings ago, I still had it in! Not like anyone ever saw it, it just became a part of me. Well, I took it out two mornings ago and ever since then I feel like my stomach looks weird. I think I need to put it back in. LOL... I will have to revisit taking it out one day though. Most likely when I get pregnant... because who wants to see a big bulging belly with a jewel in it?? Classy! ;) That's only if my belly button doesn't pop out. Oh, the horror! ;)

Anyhoo - just a random post to keep everyone up to date!



Yup, in 177 days 16 hours and 22 minutes I plan on running 13.1 miles. That's a half marathon, people!!

If you had been wondering where I went off to, I kinda fell off the bandwagon for about 4 weeks. No running. Just being plain lazy, I suppose.

Well people, I came to the realization a few weeks ago that I plan on fitting into a beautiful wedding gown in 107 days. That got my heart pumping again. No more laziness for this girl! I have signed up for 32 sessions with my old trainer at 24 hour fitness and I work with him 2x a week.

Tuesday or Wednesday mornings at 5AM (TOLD YOU I WAS SERIOUS!!!) and Saturday at 8AM. I will be doing some major calorie counting for a bit to drop the extra few pounds of body fat I could stand to use. Then gain in all back in lean body muscle! Not that I want to look like SheHulk or anything, just nice and toned.

As if planning a wedding, working, cleaning house, counting calories and weight training wasn't enough, I added a half marathon to the list in January 2010. GREAT!! Mind you, I've never probably run over 3.5 miles since High School!! This should be interesting.

I PLAN (keyword) on keeping this updated a bit more. It should be rather comical to see how well I handle all this.

Wish me luck!!
