Go Blue!





July 2013 - Goofing off some more in my office (what else is new?)

GO BLUE!

I'm a St. Louis transplant just trying to find the time and motivation to eat healthier, prepare more foods at home, and run outside for a few miles a few times a week.

Currently I am only running 1-2x a week for a mile to three each time and walking in the evenings most days. This is fine, but not where I have been in the past and not where I would like to be in terms of fitness and routine.

omgggg your comment about crossfitters was hilarious, I lol'd for sure. When my friend showed up, she IMMEDIATELY started in on it. I was like... please, stop, now.

Overall it just bothers me when people push THEIR fitness stuff on you. I mean - I joined spark so I expect it on here a bit. But in my living room at 10pm? Please. I am tired and in my sweats and I don't care about your box jumps or lifts or whatever. Or on facebook ALL OF THE TIME.

Anyways, thanks for the chuckle. Hope all is well on your side?!

emoticon for your comment on my blog. After reading your comment I checked the BMI calculators. 118 would be in the lower part of the "healthy" range (approximately at 19.6) Like you said, not attaching emotions to the scale is hard work!

Oh it's very funny how we switched places! We do love Lotte, but it's because it's one of the few places we know actually. Is that sad? We don't live in D.C. so we travel a long way to get to the stores but it's worth it. But, what is Great Wall? Wonder if it's better to purchase Chinese New Years celebration stuff... Only I don't speak Chinese but I speak Japanese. Hmm
