Staying Strong!!

Saturday, August 04, 2012

It has been a pretty good weekend!! Tomorrow is my Monday but next week is vacation time!! The scale isn't down but I am still feeling my body changing. What an amazing feeling that is! Just being able to take those extra steps without getting winded. Noticing how quickly your normal pace is getting. It's all about the little things!!

emoticon I have been a little more hungry the last few days as well. I was surprised to find that I may not have been eating enough for my new workout plan. Thankfully Sparkpeople caught it for me. I am now going to spin class 3 times a week, running 2 times a week, and strength training 2 times a week, or more if i'm in the mood. emoticon I was way over my calorie burn limit with 3 days left in the week so I made the adjustments. Now I won't be so hungry.

Bought brand new running shoes yesterday. Oh man there is nothing like brand new running shoes. I am a toe runner so I have to find shoes that are comfy in the toes. Found some Asics on sale that felt like clouds on my feet, threw in my 20% off coupon and got $110 shoes for $85. SCORE!! Happy feet AND happy pocket book. Can't beat that with two sticks. Hah!

And today I became a red head. emoticon Hah! I figured I would try something new for vacation this year and I am loving it. I am definitely not used to it. Every time I catch my reflection I have a "Whoa" moment. Hehehe! It is fun though!!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!! emoticon emoticon

    Wow, I can feel your energy flowing from your words. I love new running shoes too, although I have to admit that I haven't run since around March. Lately I have been trying to do things in more moderation (for me, that is) - and the running was a bit too much on my legs and hips. I am thinking when I get some weight off, I will try running again. In the meantime, walking is doing me good. Oh and you are so right about just being able to go a few more steps, or finding more spring in your step. It all feels so good and is great motivation.
    I love your Spark page background. And hope you have a great vacation. Red hair is always fun. I have done that a few times in my life. LOL.
