Sorry for the lack of blogs, have been busy!
is back on track! Ran 3 times this week. Once on the and last two times outside. With no snow it is much easier to run out in my area.
is on track! Been very good at 2-3 times a week.
So yesterday, I stop at this stable to drop off a bunch of tack I no longer need and the barn owner is interested in. Note, my ex boyfriend boards his horse here. We broke up on good terms and are still friends.
So we hadn't seen each other in like 2.5 yrs I think? So he keeps asking me what is new. Um nothing except Turtle, but you knew about that. And he keeps asking. Are you SURE there isn't something new? So finally I just threw out there well I'm now, I suppose that's new?
He goes 'THAT'S IT! I can tell!'
So I mentioned this to my BF later that night and said I was surprised that he was just noticing the weight loss, I thought he had seen that before. My BF mentioned that I was in process of losing weight, I wasn't finished when he saw me last.
Oh. then I and said I'm still not finished! I'm a work in progress, like a piece of fine art, there will always be something to sculpt! And that's OK!
Have a great one all my

So Sunday morning I planned on a after breakfast , it was 24 and 8 mph winds. doable.
After breakfast... I glanced outside and saw blowing pretty hard, almost horizontally! checked the weather again and the winds are now 20 mph, NOT DOABLE!
So I grumbled and moaned and figured I would just use the dreadmill...
I set my MP3 player on, and started off. I put a post it note over the timer last year as it was also such a hardship to see that so SLOWLY tick away. I felt like just running and try not to be miserable that I was not outside.
Before I realized it, 4-5 songs had been played and I'm still running. I would slow down to a slow jog for about 1/4 - 1/2 mile then back up to a faster speed. I was amazed and how easy this was, yes, I was running on an incline, but more of the reflection that how much my running from last year has changed my current abilities!
I actually was smiling and enjoying my time on the When I was done, I was surprised to see I ran almost 40 minutes as I was thinking only 25 minutes had gone by.
While my mileage the last two months has been really low due to weather, sickness, holidays, at least now I know that February will not be a loss as the is not so much of a chore anymore!

Wow The products are gorgeous but it was really hard for me to swallow spending so much money on items at this store. I also believe that knowing I need to purchase a new hard hat for when I start to show was adding to this.
What the big deal on a hat you ask? Well it has to be approved and the approved helmets range $150-500+. No the TroxelŽ Sport Original Lightweight Schooling Helmet that is $30 is not approved!
The other factor is I have picked up running shirts for $3 (love Kohl's clearance) and Under Armor at factory outlet prices, so to spend $65-100 on shirts was beyond me. I also have a ton of shirts.
Pants, I really have enough pants too. Also, their reviews mostly stated if your short, they won't work for you.
so I settled on a jacket. I don't have a jacket. I do have a hoodie and that hoodie has been working just fine. Whatever, I don't NEED a jacket but I talked myself into a jacket. I found a cute one in pink with reflective lines on it. perfect. tried it on, not bad, etc. It is on final sale for $119. Beats the $140 one I was looking at. I did find others on sale for $99 but they were more hoodie like, I was going for wind resistant.
so I'm looking around at other stuff as well. I find their shorts. They are $4 more than my gift certificate. hmm so I grab two different shorts and head to the dressing room.
Really liked the shorts! put the jacket on again and checked in the and the deal is OFF! It gave me a huge bubble butt! I haven't been running my butt off to have some jacket look like I have a huge caboose! I was bummed. I couldn't even find the jacket I wanted at the store.
So.. I got a pair of shorts. I am so glad that is over! I suppose I would have been able to find something for sure if I was into Yoga!
