Another day of WW complete!
Just finished tracking all of my food from today, aka my last minute fruit smoothie :) Just 1 point!! So awesome. Anyway, I’m proud of myself because although I did go over my daily point allowance, I only used my activity points and I didn’t use any weekly points today. Wahoo! For some reason, WW is a lot more difficult this time around…but it’s only day 3 since I...
5 Simple Tips for Healthy Eating
1. Stop drinking soda - Sodas have no nutritional value and are very high in sugar and calories! Despite adding inches to your waistline, soda also contributes to weakened bones, diabetes, and tooth decay. They have also been linked to depleting the body of vitamin A, calcium, and magnesium. Although diet soda doesn’t have the extra calories, it does contain sodium, which is another...
Easy 1.5 Mile Run
Today was supposed to be an easy pace for my 1.5 mile run. Supposedly, my easy pace is about an 11 minute or 11:30 pace. But I just felt SO good when I went out that I ran it at a barely sub-9:30 pace! 9:30 is my 5k goal pace so I was pumped when I finished and saw my final time!! Just one of those all around great runs…perfect weather, perfect breathing, perfect pace :D Distance = 1.50 /...

First Speedwork Day!
Today was my first scheduled speed workout! I wasn’t really in the mood to workout today, mainly due to the fact that I have early classes every morning this quarter and my sleeping schedule isn’t exactly perfect yet. BUT I sucked it up and went out there and did it! And of course, as always, I was definitely glad I did it and didn’t just stay at home lounging around all day. My...
A New Fastest Pace Record!
I officially began my new running training schedule today! Today’s run was a time trial 1 mile. This basically means that I need to run the scheduled length run at goal race pace or a bit faster. My goal race pace is 9:30 so that I can try to get a sub 30 minute 5k time in May! This would shave about 5 minutes off my previous time. Today I ran a mile in 9:20!! Ten whole seconds faster than I...

I think I might cry. My #1 insecurity about my body is my stomach! The fact that I’ll have to expose it to 25+ people in my lab every week until June? Well…that just sucks. Not excited about this at all.
Last Day in NC
Today is my last full day in NC. My flight departs tomorrow around 11 AM and I’m so sadddd for the following reasons: I hate leaving NC. North Carolina > Ohio! I don’t want to start my final quarter at OSU. I’m going to miss OSU so much and I’m just not ready to be a real adult yet!! I want to stay in college for at least another 10 years lol. I don’t want to...

Best day ever? I THINK SO!
Finally a good running day!
I took that rest day I so desperately needed yesterday and today I felt great! Went out for a scheduled 1.5 mile run, and it ended up being 1.62 miles because the half mile loop I used was .54 instead of exactly .50 miles. :-O THE HORROR! lol Anyway, I felt good on the first lap, despite it being mainly up hill for the last 2/3 of it, but then started feeling really lightheaded towards the end of...

Why I Decided to Stop Training for the Half...
It seems like just yesterday I was embarking on my training for my first half marathon….oh wait, maybe because it practically was! About 3 and a half weeks ago I started day 1 of my half marathon training schedule. I was pumped! I was excited! I was…dreadfully ill-prepared. And so began 2 weeks of kinda struggling to keep up and then 1 week of feeling terrible about myself because I...

I'm so frustrated.
I had yet another bad run today. And today’s was even worse than yesterday’s! I only ran about 1.5 miles before I had to walk. I wasn’t out of breath and my legs weren’t that tired but my body just felt completely drained of energy and I was utterly exhausted. I’m not sure what’s up with me lately…but here are the changes in my training that might be the...

HM Training Day #12
Today’s run was supposed to be 5 miles. The farthest I’ve run, not counting walk/run intervals, is 3.5 miles. After the first 2 miles or so, I just felt like I had run out of gas. Despite wearing my brand new Brooks shoes, which I loveeee, I felt sluggish and dehydrated. I’m going to wager a guess and blame this on poor nutrition and eating foods with too much sodium last night...
I've decided to do weight watchers again!
I’ve been doing poorly with my eating habits lately so I’ve decided to do weight watchers again because it worked really well for me at the beginning of my fitness journey!

HM Training Day #11
On the training schedule today was Walk 2 miles, Run 2 miles, Walk 2 miles. I completed all 6 miles in 1 hour, 16 minutes. Set a new personal best pace for a walk/run/walk day since I started this training plan which was great! It was extremely sunny and warm, and my parents’ neighborhood here in NC is MUCH hillier than by my apartment at school. Needless to say, I was struggling during some...
