Sometimes you just need to RUN….

October 25, 2011

Don’t you hate it sometimes when your all amped for the gym and grab your cool gear and take your cool supplements only to find out that you forgot your damn shoes for the gym. That what happened to me today,I was upset at first,then remembered what my 8th grade teacher said, “Don’t sweat the small stuff…” that’s exactly what I did,I just put my working shoes back on,went to the free weights & machine area at Lifetime Fitness & blasted 4 sets of heavy weights for chest and back workouts. I had a 30 second rest in between sets and jumped back into it,partly thanks to my lunch which was Uncle Bens Brown rice and a chicken Kabob skewer.

After my heavy/quick workout I decided to go home for a run on this beautiful day,damn was it a beautiful day. I went in the house to get my Vibrams since I washed them last night and try we’re air dried. Once I slipped them on,I felt invincible.

It was 65 degrees out,small breeze,you could smell the crisp leaves,seeing the colors was very calming during my run.

When I got home I decided to do a little jump rope and stair jumps,which was a great ending for a great cardio work out. Checked the calories burned on my heart rate monitor & I was happy.

Now I’m sitting in front of a plate of delicious home made(except Uncle Ben’s Brown rice) meal to satisfy my carb appetite. NO CARBS BEFORE 6pm! A must in my diet.

    That meal looks delicious!! Do you ever step on branches or rocks with your Vibrams when running in the woods? I feel like that would hurt….

      Thanks for reading the blog. Once in awhile I’ll step on a rock or branch & I could pretty much feel it,but then again my feet aren’t hitting the pavement hard enough to hurt my feet. Plus I have the Runners Vibrams so it has a little more rubber in the bottom for that kinda stuff.

        Try going for walks. I know a ton of people who’ve lost wegiht who try to go for a walk every day for maybe a mile or two, though you can work up to that much as you go.You can try to jog or run if you’d like, but people who run or jog as their only exercize are more likely to quit a program or routine for wegiht loss.Also as an extra note, make sure to be drinking lots of water everyday! It helps you lose wegiht.
