Hi Lovelies!

Can I just start by saying how crazy out of shape you can get in just one month?! On my first day of bootcamp I couldn’t believe how badly I already felt after not doing much of anything for just one month! Well, let’s just say I won’t be doing that again anytime soon.

The last two weeks have been awesome though! I never thought I would be that girl who wakes up at 4:45 to go work out, but I am actually loving it! I go to boot camp, take a shower, get ready, eat breakfast, and get some things done around the house…all before work at 8AM. It’s fantastic! I am the type of person who needs A LOT of motivation to get out of bed. If it was just me wandering into Gold’s Gym by myself to jog on the treadmill I would make it one day…if even that. Knowing that I have that trainer and my class waiting for me really helps to get me up out of bed in a hurry. It also helps that I have already lost 4.5 pounds…Lol:)

Work out gear

Now that I’m back in my work out state of mind (and feeling great I might add!) I have been eyeing some new work out gear! Here in Austin, even at 5:30AM, it is pretty warm outside and it just gets warmer as the hour goes on. It’s really nice to have a few layers to strip off as I go, so this outfit would be perfect for me. The best part? Adidas is having a summer sale and thousands of their items are up to 40% off! The sale is on anything summer, from running shoes to swimwear. Happy shopping!

I Run Because I Really, Really, REALLY Like Dessert

Hi Lovelies!

I know it has been a LONG time since I have posted about working out. Pretty sure the last time was here when I showed you my awesome new work out shirt here…but a lot has happened since then!If you follow along on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook, you already know that one of my best friends and I are going to be running a half marathon in April! We have been talking about it for a few months and started running back in November…we didn’t sign up until this last week because we wanted to make sure that we were in good enough shape to start training.Lol! I was told that you should be able to run 3 miles a few times a week before you can start your training, and we are definitely there AND getting so much better! We have even made our very own half marathon training schedule!

I am so amazed at how much stamina I have built up. I can run for 45 minutes straight, burning over 600 calories and still keep going! It’s really crazy how I have turned from someone who hates running into that girl who would rather run than go on the elliptical! I have been MUCH better  about eating healthy (minus the holidays lol), but I could still do better. I have to say though, that is part of the reason I run. I run so that I can have an ice cream or that mac & cheese with bacon:) I also run for the sweet gear! Yes, I know…typical girlie me. These are some of the awesome work out clothes I have accumulated over the past few months.

Those pants are the most comfy pants EVER and I would highly recommend them. I Googled a promo code for the website and got them for 20% off.

Is anyone out there running a race this year? Any advice for a beginner like me?!
