...getting older?

Last Thursday, I turned 30. And I have to say that I am in the best shape I have ever been in. I look better. I feel better. I am able to do things that even as a child, I wasn't able to do. And, I attribute a lot of that, to the fact that I am more physically active, than I every was before.

I am a strong believer that for one to stay young, one must get up an move. You are only as old as you feel, and if you are able to get up and go for a walk, then you should. Think about it, when you don't use things, you lose them. That includes muscle mass. So get up and use your muscles, and start to feel better.

Feeling better is something to curl up with.

...Bonnie and Clyde?

As you know, I love to ride. For the last year and a half, I have been riding Clyde. He is a steel beast, and has trained me well. I love him. He is thick and heavy and comfortable. We have gone over 2000 miles together, and I am sure we will do many more. 

Now Bonnie, named after carbon, is a sweet and sexy, red head. She's fast and lightweight. (She only weighs about 16 lbs.) She makes me use muscles that I didn't know I had. She is going to do wonders for my back, glutes, and legs. So far, we have only gone about 25 miles together, but like with Clyde, I am sure we will do many more.

Bonnie and Clyde are definitely somethings to curl up with!!!

Monday, April 16, 2012 trainer?

You are my trainer this week. Text me or
post a comment and I will do some extra exercises. Hey maybe we could do them together. That would be fun. You can do it. I know you can, because I've seen it before.

So come on, send me a message. I know you want to. I dare you to. No wait. I triple double dog dare you to. So, what are you waiting for? It's only a little text. Six letters at the most. Just do it. I'm asking for it.

Support from friends is something to curl up with.

After 10 weeks of maintaining my non-goal weight, I finally jumped off the edge of my plateau and started losing again. I have to thank one of the women that work at WW for suggesting that, I decrease my points. I don't know why, I never thought of that or why my WW leader didn't suggest it, but Jaime did and I lost 3.4 pounds last week. I am now at my WW goal. Although, I do want to lose 10 more pounds in order to lower my BMI, I finally feel successful.

And Success is something to curl up with.

...something fun?

Finding the motivation can be hard. You really just have to find what you love. If it is something you love you will be less likely to quit. Make it fun. Run with your dog, play soccer with the kids, go dancing with the girls, take a walk with your honey. Just get out and move.

For me, when I don't want to go to the gym or get on my bike, I think about how I will feel after I am finished. I know I will feel better about myself. I will have more energy and just be happier. So I strap on my shoes and go.

What you listen to can also be motivation. Here are some of my favorite running songs. I listened to these when I first started running. Now I listen to books.

Rolling In The Deep-Adele
Set Fire To The Rain-Adele
Keeps Gettin' Better-Christina Aguilera
Echo-Dr. Dre & Eminem
Love The Way You Lie Pt.2-Rihanna & Eminem
Lose Yourself-Eminem
Not Afraid-Eminem
Cinderella Man-Eminem
Just Dance-Lady Gaga
Bleed It Out-Linkin Park
Time Is Running Out-Muse
Famous Last Words-My Chemical Romance
The Hand That Feeds-Nine Inch Nails
Only-Nine Inch Nails
Only Girl-Rihanna

Music and doing what you love is something to curl up with.
