2012 Arthritis Walk

Thursday, April 12, 2012

My dad has had artritis pain for as long as I can remember. A few surgeries later and he still has constant pain that is sometimes to the point that he cannot move or get up from a chair without help. This should not be happening to a man in his 50's.

From a selfish side blood testing and now my pills have confirmed I have the same wonky gene as him. *Warning bluneness coming* This scares the poo (ha, I just got a pop up that yelled at me for having profanity) out of me. Am I going to be in the same amount of pain as I get older? One of the symptoms is back pain from a young age. I sleep with a heating pad on my lower back every night and have never been able to sit at an office desk without being stiff and in pain by the end of the day.

We have decided to do an arthritis walk with a fundraising portion so I am just going to leave this here:


Anybody else going to be there?

I went out and bought the book New Rules of Lifting for Women this morning and have already read it through. I did the first workout today and feel like I am going to be a bit sore. I'm so excited to have a new program that tells me exactly what I need to do for strength training. This has been a hard spot for me in my transformation and I feel like this will help.

I am excited for a new tool to help make a lasting change.

C25k W2D2 - Speed Work

Thursday, April 05, 2012

I think I've been having a hard time with the speed work because there is no "awesome I did it" feeling at the end. Today I decided that my goal is going to be doing the intervals sub 11 min/mile. That way there is a "Yes, I did what I wanted to do and I pushed myself" feeling of accomplishment. That is still 2.5 min/mile quicker than my race pace. I'm going to push myself like I did originally and get it moving.

Here's to a new spark and new goals!

All Kinds of Excitement.... 20 Pounds and Color Run

Sunday, April 01, 2012

Yesterday I was at the funeral and everyone kept asking me how much weight I have lost. In order to make it easier (and sound less crazy) I was telling everyone 20. I was pound away anyway. I weighed myself this morning and I hit my 20 pound loss!!!!! Only 30 more to go now. I even did a dance when I went to tell my husband.

There was another blog about the The Color Run that I was reading because I am in love with the idea and I went to read the website again. There is one coming to Ann Arbor, MI!!! I already emailed my friend who I may be running with in May to see if she wants to do it with me. Either way I'm doing it and it's going to be awesome. I am so F-in excited.

    The one that helps me the most:
"You'll never regret the workout you did, only the ones you didn't!"

Have a great day!
