Long time no see. I was running 6 miles a day 2x a week with my friend from high school and then stopped because of the cold but somehow lost weight anyways and got to an all time low of 107 (probably not eating enough if I’m being honest).
Then my new boy came to visit for a week, he’s a body builder/personal trainer and we went to the gym every day and he trained me. I’ve since fallen in love with weight training. I’m a bit nervous to do it without him here to check my form and such but I’m excited to really change my body for the best and hopefully get the results I’ve been looking for for years.
I’m also going to change my diet, trying to eat more and healthier foods. I’m aiming for protein, veggies and carbs with each meal, 2 snacks a day, healthy fats and minimal sugars/fruit.
Wish me luck!
I’m really proud of myself for doing it and being able to complete most of the obstacles. The only ones I couldn’t do were the wall you had to walk across on pegs (they were too far spaced for me to reach because I’m so short), climbing the rope and monkey bars and the javelin throw, So proud of myself and so much fun! Also, so many cuts and bruises all over my body!! My favorite obstacle was the barbed wire and sliding down muddy hills. I was most proud of completing the wall with the rope to climb up without assistance! My strength training definitely helped me to do all the weight related obstacles!
Today is the day I’ve been training for, not training so much for, fearing, worrying about, excited about, etc. Emotions are running high and now I’m just pumped. Spartan Race 2013… here I come!
