Transformation in the City

17 Apr

Ok so I just found Theodora’s blog and I think she is so fun to read about!  I love NYC.  Being from the East coast myself sometimes I miss it.  Although I do love the mountains.  I miss the East Coast in the fall with all the leaves changing 🙂  I really wanted to try to run a couple races this summer.  I am considering getting pregnant around that time as well so I think that is an excuse and I would love to start doing something new again because I really want to get back to goal again.  So I have started up spinning again.  Which I forgot how much I love, and I am thinking about running as well.  I think I need to get some new shoes.  So if you have any ideas feel free to let me know.  My husband is thinking about getting those toe shoes.  Personally I think I want more padding not less padding.  I know some people swear buy it, but not sure if one of those people would be me.  Especially since I am not a lover of running already.  Anyway, thoughts would be appreciated.  Put your favorite type or brand of running shoe in the comments 🙂  Anyway, Theodora lost over 50lbs and now she runs and does tons of races.  I love this blog post it talks about respecting each race and each distance and I think that is really neat.  Click Here  anyway, hope you love it as much as I do.  Let me know what your favorite new fitness activity.

Physical Plateau!

10 Apr

So I lost 60lbs almost 5 years ago than got pregnant had a baby lost the weight again, and now have found about 15 of those pounds.  This is a journey I am still happy with where I am at (sort of)  Happy, but want to lose it again.  But I feel like the stuff I would normally do to lose weight I could usually judge what I did or ate and could guess whether i would go up or down and now it seems to not be working.  I almost wanted to think I was pregnant because I would have a reason haha but I need to be more focuse write things down and I know most of weight loss about 80% ATLEAST is eating so thats what I need to do.  I did read this article that I thought was really good, and it reminded me what I did for the last 10lbs the first time.  I actually started running.  Now I am not normally a runner but I had a friend that wanted to run a 5k so I told her I would do it with her.  I still hate running.  I get so bored I don’t know why running for an hr is so different that stairs or the Arc Trainer, but for me it is.  Anyway Click Here if you want to read the article it was really good.  Made me remind myself what I needed to start doing and I probably should start running again.  My body isn’t use to it haha I don’t think it ever will be.  Anyway, just remember nothing changes until you change something!
