It’s been a long time

22 Apr

Wow time sure does fly! I always mean to get on here and update the blog, but then I get distracted by something else and months go by. Since I left off I competed in a Biggest Loser competition at work (and I won!). Managed to kick 10 pounds to the curb in the two months we did the challenge. Immediately following I started The Superhero Challenge. It was a mix of Paleo and crossfit. I loved it. Well most of the time. It took a minute to beat the sugar cravings and to stop having headaches, but once I got through the withdrawal symptoms I really enjoyed it. The challenge was 21 days. My friend/co-worker and I took it an additional week. I can definitely see myself sicking to something like Paleo. Once you start changing the way you eat you really don’t crave the things you once had to have. 20140422-102246.jpg

This is what I’ve been doing, gym, sweat and Paleo!

I also started running…..well more walk/jogging. I have a 5k coming up in May, and I need to train. I haven’t ran since I lived in Hungary. I’m pretty sure I was dying after the first 30 seconds. It was awful. I hated every minute of it…..but now I’m up to alternating 90 seconds running, 90 seconds walking, 3 minutes running, and 3 minutes running. I couldn’t imagine not going out everyday and doing it. I have recruited some of my friends and we go running after work and on the weekends. I was surprised at first at the reaction I was getting from people, maybe I thought someone would say something offensive about someone my weight running. However the opposite has happened. A lot of runners (you know the in shape hella intimidating ones) say hello and wave and are encouraging. It makes in easier to push through with encouragement! I have a goal set in mind for the 5k, I want to finish. Finishing would be amazing. I’ve always talked a big game about 5ks I will do, but I never registered and never trained. Now I’m registered and have started to train….can’t wait to see if I finish! 20140422-102301.jpg
