Getting My Booty Moving!

It is a well known fact that I have a love/hate relationship with losing weight, eating healthy, and working out.  I love the results of all three, but actually doing them is not always pure bliss.  But they are all things I NEED to do in order to be the healthy person I want to be.

I have slowly, but surely been working all three of these things into my daily routine.  The eating healthy part has been one of the hardest parts.  As busy as I am working multiple jobs and going to school, fast food is easy and good.  But then I gained 20 pounds in 5 months and well that was NOT good at all.  So I am back on the healthy make my own food train. Like this breakfast I am obsessed with: plain greek yogurt, strawberries, and truvia sprinkled on top.

And then there is the working out.  Waking up at 4 am to go to the gym won't cut it with my never ending busy days.  So I am back into trying to run.  I ran my first 5k in almost a year a couple weeks ago, I got new shoes (Brooks Revenna), and I am battling the Florida heat and trying to run.  Today I had my first run in my new shoes!

It didn't go exactly as planned, but I got out there and did it.  My goal is to run 2-3 times a week training for my next 5k at the end of July.  And during that race I am hoping a praying to beat my time of 39:47.

In all of this process over the last couple of weeks, I have lost some weight.  I am down about 6 pounds, which is AWESOME! I also know the more weight I lose the easier running is going to be for me.  And the more progress I see the more I am going to want to continue eating healthy and running!

I am hoping that putting this out there will also provide some encouragement and pressure for me to keep going.  I want to feel better about myself again and the only way to do that is to GET MY BOOTY MOVING!!!
