It's got to burn SOME calories, right??

I have been struggling to hit the pavement lately. The "Lazy" is really starting to show again. I've even gone so far as to get dressed, lace up, and then sat on the couch for 3 hours. 

That stops now. I had a bad week. I will not beat myself up over it. I will forgive myself and I will move on. 

How do you get yourself motivated to work out/run when you're feeling down or tired or just not in the mood?

Friday 5 - Why I Run Edition

I used to do a fun thing here where every Friday I would pick a new topic and post 5 things that relate to it. It was always one of my favorite posts to do and I had a lot of fun doing it so I'm bringing it back.

5 Reasons That I Run:

1. - Something is chasing me. Zombies are scary, if you can outrun them, do it. Do NOT try to be a

2. - I did something or broke something I shouldn't have. I am basically a 5 year old trapped in a 31 year old's body. If I think I'm going to get yelled at, I will likely run far far away.

3. - I'm playing with Jazzy. We have a fun game where I hide behind something and she comes looking for me and when she finds me I chase her around the apartment. She loves it. I usually laugh hysterically the whole time. This is us after I caught her while playing a round, she's a little out of breathe.

4. - I'm trying to prove to everyone, but mostly myself, that I CAN run. I want to prove that no matter what others may think about my strength or endurance, that if I believe I can do it, I will do it.

5. - The Glory. The Bling. The Bragging Rights. I run for medals, I run to show off something that other people don't have because they were not as determined, or crazy as I was. I mean, seriously, check out this bling, don't you wish you had gotten off your couch that day and ran that race and earned this medal?

So tell me, why do YOU run?

Transformation Tuesday and a Reintroduction

I find myself staring at these photos when I'm having a rough day. I look at the photo on the left, and I don't even recognize myself. I don't know how I got to that point. Medication, depression, poor eating habits and living in a state of chronic pain just all caught up with me.
Originally this blog was about becoming a better home keeper.  I've decided it's now time to make it about becoming a better ME.  Thank you for joining me on this journey.
