First of all, sorry for the lack of posting the last few days of last week, we went camping and were enjoying ourselves too much for me to even think about posting, and couldn't because of the lack of service in the mountains! (thank goodness for those little vacays from EVERYTHING!) Now, onto Makeover Monday!
Right after I had my second baby, a few days before Christmas, I knew I needed to start working out to get my body back into shape. I wanted to get down to the size I was when I got married, and I'm nearly there! I also wanted to feel better, and do something that I would enjoy doing. My friend and neighbor, Ali, asked me to sign up for a 10k on the 4th of July in January, so I had plenty of time to get my body ready to run. I was not a runner in any sense, and actually never really liked it. But, I always heard how great it is, and how you can loose weight quickly by running, so I thought I should give it a try.
I found this pin on pinterest and decided to give it a try to get my body used to running. This pin comes from a tumblr page, tan & toned, and I don't have the original source. But the idea behind it is to slowly work up to running for a full 30 minutes in just 8 weeks. I really enjoyed this and thought it was really easy to achieve this goal. Give it a try, and you'll be surprised at how much you could fall in love with running. I totally have and really enjoy it, its my release, my therapy, my girl time (thanks Ali), and of course my exercise! Get out there and do some running, you'll feel better and find that you really can enjoy it!
