Week 2 Pooch to 5k: Oh the Knee’s!
January 10, 2013

Holy junk! Ok so today is was my day two of week two of the pooch to 5k. Boy oh boy so my knee’s hate me right now. It’s obviously been quite sometime since I last jogged and I also was probably a little bit smaller. So I’m guessing its my weight putting a bunch of pressure on my knee joints. I’m suppose to jog 90 seconds and walk 2 minuets 6 times. Well. I only got to 1 1/2 times lol. It hurt. So, coming back home I looked up ways to help get rid of my pain and heal the knee’s. That’s when I found the R.I.C.E method. Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. That is what I am doing until I feel I can get back to jogging without hurting myself again. So during my break I will continue my yoga, do more knee and leg exercises, and going on the inversion table. 

Also, on other pages I saw that you should have some Ibuprofen. I don’t use ibuprofen any more so my mom found a natural pain relief. Tumeric and water!

  • 1-2 tsp. of Turmeric Powder or

  • 1 Oz Juiced Turmeric Root

  • 1 cup coconut water OR

  • Mix into fresh vegetable juice made in your juicer (celery, cucumber, ginger & lemon is a great anti-inflammatory juice to mix your turmeric into)

It’s not so tasty but it gets the job done!

Everyone enjoy your day! And if you are doing the Pooch to 5k with me don’t stop keep going I’ll catch up with you guys 🙂

Oh, HAPPY NEW YEAR! Again another beautiful day here in Florida. Went for a wonderful jog, it couldn’t have been any prettier really. Had my music blastin’, dog by my side, the breeze was just perfect and the heat was at a perfect temp. Like, jeeze I gotta say it is just a perfect day to start off the New Year.  This year is going to be the best year ever. No if’s and but’s I will be checking off all of my list before 2014.

.::My List::.

  1. Shed the fat suit. This will be so easy! Other years I just didn’t give it my all, this year on the other hand it will be off. I will enhance my endurance. By the end of the year I want to be jogging 6-10 miles a day, be 120 lbs, build my muscle mass, and take some sort of martial art.
  2. Getting in touch with my creative side. I want to get into some sort of art class. Learn how to draw better, take more photos, and crochet. May hap a little creative writing. that brings me to:
  3. Learn more. I want to get into school and get my brain to work. Take classes I’m only interested in taking, and read more books.
  4. Enhance my homesteading skills. I want to make half of my yard all veggies! Learn how to collect water for the plants, etc. By the end of the year I want to have all of the fruits and veggies we eat come out of our back yard. I’m also dying to have chickens again boy oh boy do I miss them! With learning more homesteading skills I would like to learn survival skills.
  5. Getting in touch with my inner self. I want to do more meditation. Release all of my fear and sadness and become at peace with every obstacle I run into.  Let everything go. When I feel I need to say something, say it and not hold it in. Be more free.
  6. Be more sociable. Get out there and meet more people. Break outta my shell a little bit go out more often. Example; beaches, hikes etc.

I believe that is it so far! Today I am starting a 30 Day Art challenge with a fellow Facebook friend! Like I said before this year is going to be the best!

Everyone have a Happy New Year! Make this a year to remember.

2013

Much love,

Whoa!: Week 1 Pooch to 5k
December 30, 2012

Hello there! Well, as you know I haven’t posted since, hmm lets see… JULY! Holy moly. Well, first thing is first.  Stella has been born! She’s now four months. Yeah its been a long time!

So, now since she’s four months I think its about that time to start my Pooch to 5k. I coulda started some time ago but I’m starting now.  I’ve been doing a jog/walk thing for two day’sish but today is my official start of the first week. This has been my routine: wake up, feed baby, put her back to sleep, jump on the mini trampoline for 5 minuets, go on the inversion table for 5 minuets, do some yoga for 10 minuets, then take my dog out and go jogging. Golly I love it! I have missed jogging so much! I had a dream about 4 nights ago just jogging everywhere and it felt so good. So, I put my foot down and said  ” That’s it! Time to start jogging.”

1st week

1st week

I will be doing this for everyday of the week not 3 days like this says. My “mentality laziness”  would just be very happy with taking 4 days off as a ” oh just don’t do this any more.” So 7 days it is! I have been also taking a Pro energy drink during my “in the house” work outs. Then as soon as getting back from jogging I have my shake. This morning I had a Cherry Banana Shake. Very, Very yummy! Wanna join me in my Pooch to 5k  weight loss journey? Click those words and get started. 🙂 Oh by the way you don’t have to have a dog to start the Pooch to 5k so that excuse is outta your way. 2013 bring it.

Not only is my reason to just to lose weight, be healthy and get my doggie happier. I’m also getting ready for this summer at a little convention I go to. I am so ready to be at my best  and look my best. My sexy little self is ready to shed off this fat suit.

And this is my baby girl!Stella<3

And this is my baby girl!
