Sorry I’ve been off this blog for a while. i just needed to focus on school and working out and didn’t have time to be on tumblr much, and when I was I was on my main blog… But I’m starting insanity tomorrow so I figured I needed as much support as I can get so I came back. I’ve missed this community. love you all :)

So August is here, I guess it’s time for new goals!
- Run every day, doesn’t matter how far, but just get a run in, as well as complying with my Half Marathon training schedule!
- Eat healthier. I know I say that all the time, but now I’ve realized how I’ve not actually been eating too well.
- I can have one “treat” a day, and will eat when I’m hungry - not when I’m bored!!!
- I will drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.
- I will drink a maximum of 3 cups of coffee a day.
- I am hoping to weigh less than 170 by the end of the month!!
Let’s tackle August :)
- 1 year ago
So I’m way behind where I wanted to be, but such is life.
Right now I have almost exactly 2 months left of summer. I weight about 178 (I think I mainly gained muscle weight and have been super bloated recently).
By the end of summer I am hoping to be down to at least 165. It will also be close to my half marathon so I have faith that training will aid in my weight loss.
In order to lose this weight I am going to work out for at least one hour a day, and starting on July 23, start my half marathon training schedule. I will modify my workouts and rest according to how my body feels because I will be running a lot, but I am stoked to be working out about 5 days a week at this point - I’ve mainly been missing due to going out of town for day trips. So I’m hoping to bump that up to 6 days a week if not 7 again :)
Here’s to losing weight, the healthy way :)
Day forty-six: Do you have a favourite motivational quote?
The first one to come to mind is “pain is weakness leaving the body” :) so true. It’s what keeps me going during a tough workout.
Weekly challenge: Aim to have a completely “clean food” week, avoid all processed food!
so easy to do with my job :)
Day forty-three: Apart from weight loss, have you noticed any other benefits from your healthy diet?
yes. I feel much better when I run, easier to breath and less stress on my knees/joints. also I feel like my skin is healthier from eating more natural foods! :)
Day forty-two: What is the meaning of life? Just kidding. If you feel happy with the way your body looks before you reach your ultimate goal weight, will you continue to try and lose weight, or will you aim to maintain?
hmm. I’ll honestly probably still try to lose. My goal weight barely puts me near or at a “healthy” weight, so it would be nice to actually see 160 (or lower on a scale) it also would mean that i’ve gotten rid of that much more fat!! So, the answer would be no.
Day forty-one: Do you drink tea or coffee?
I drink soooo much coffee. Growing up around Seattle made it hard to not drink it. I have at least a cup of joe every morning and just love it :) I also am a tea drinker, but I can’t go a day without my coffee!!
