Drop LBS Like It’s HOTTT

Well it has been FAR too long since I have posted but I am ready to get life back on track. Health and wellness have been put on the back burner as of late but I am needing community support to help me get back on the good old bandwagon.

If you are needing the same motivation as I am, then you should join me on DietBet.Com

The start date is July 6th so sign up before then.

This is only $25 to bet that you can lose 4% of your body weight in just one month. I have done it before and believe me money is a motivator. Spread the word and let’s kick some bootay together!!! If you win you get to split the pot so that means, getting your money back and some, it is a pretty sweet success!

 

 

Horsetooth Half Marathon 2013

  Colorado’s #1 Half Marathon!

Runners, I recommend you make this apart of your bucket list.

This was the most challenging race of my life, just take a look at the intense elevation changes, but Carolyn and I enjoyed the scenery along the way! There were a lot of runners with smiling faces which made for a fun experience. We also felt very safe they had police force close by the entire way. The hills were very steep, especially Monster Mountain, but what goes up must come down. We looked forward to the down hill parts. My one major complaint they did not have any gatorade or gu or gels along the way so by the end I was completely exhausted and running off fumes. Lesson learned to always carry a supply of energy (which we, along with others forgot)! The race ended at my favorite brewery, New Belgium, but we were too tired to take part in the fun.

We ran for the victims of the Boston Marathon, what a tragedy. Do not let terrorists stop you from achieving your life long goals. Living in fear is not living at all.

Keep Calm and Run ON!

Treadmill Track Workout

Start with 5 sets and then increase each time you do this workout.

Make sure to do build and this will improve your mile time!

I also like to add an incline of 2 to make it more challenging.

Happy Running and Health!

Half Marathon Training Schedule

For my first half marathon this past Spring I used a beginner’s plan but this time I want something more challenging. I came across, Hal Higdon Training Programs, on my Google hunt for a training schedule found what I am looking for. This website has great training routines for various race distances and for all levels, so check it out! My training starts in less than 2 weeks and I am more than ready to get back into it. The route of my upcoming race has a lot of hills so I will doing a lot of incline running. There is nothing like having a routine to stick to with an end goal that is so rewarding. Wish me luck!

How to Carry Your Key on a Run

A common problem we all run into, is where to put your keys when you go for a run outside? Here is my solution works like a charm.

Step 1: Find a hair tie.

Image

Step 2: Pull the hair tie through your key.

Image

Step 3: Loop the hair tie through the key and pull.

Image

Step 4: Then loop the hair tie through your sports bra and pull tightly.

Image

Step 5: Put your shirt on. Enjoy your run and be worry free!

(if you are a male, tying the key with your shoelaces is a great option or on your wrist but let’s get real most men’s gear has pockets already and us girls are jealous)

Happy Holidays

Oh today is cold and I need some motivation right about now. The park nearby is calling my name but I cannot seem to remove myself from my cozy apartment. So what do I do…look to my Pinterest board and plan my attack. I also just downloaded the Nike Running app and I have been dying to test it out, there is no better time than now.

Here is my plan, I will run a lap or two around the park and then chose a killer workout to get my metabolism started.Who is with me?! The goal is to always stay in check, ESPECIALLY over the holidays, right?
