***Side note- the onslaught of new followers has been absolutely amazing! Expect a special celebratory post very soon!!***
I'm not sure if I have ever fully explained to you all- Mondays are my Fridays. Working for Disney my work week is completely backwards from the rest of the world so my "weekend" is the middle of the average work week. May seem strange for some people but it actually lets me get most anything done since the rest of the world works on every business day.
I've found lately that during my work days I'm fully capable of eating well! I pack all the right snacks, stick to them, and I'm running around doing shows! Healthy Krystina- check! My weekends are entirely another story...
Enter Ashley from Me and My Boys and her seriously kick booty "Motivate Me Monday" posts. Check her out!!
Her idea is to post every Monday about getting healthy and sticking to it! She includes info on her progress, recipes, workout tips, and just a whole lot of "you can do it"-ness. I fell in love with it and I am officially jumping on this bandwagon!
:) Thanks Ashley!
Now, Im not yet ready to post pictures of the scale or my food diary, but I'll get to that point soon enough! Today is all about getting myself motivated to get back to running...
Since this is my first post of this nature- let me explain to you my need to get and stay healthy.
I'm not even 5 feet tall and my weight fluctuates a full 25 pounds on a regular basis. 25 pounds, people!! That is no joke! It takes a serious toll on my knees and back.
These are the 2 extremes of that 25 pound spectrum. Don't see it? Well, it all comes out in my face shape and the fullness of my lovely Cuban hips! Right now, I'm somewhere between the 2 and hoping this will help me get back to that second picture.
First things first though- getting back to running! Here's hoping I'll be ready to do the Miami Half in January and the Disney Princess Half in February... I have to admit, I get nervous about signing up because I'm afraid I can't do it again.
A friend of mine that's been running to get healthy (and has inspired everyone around her in doing it!) recently ran the Disneyland half and came across someone wearing a tshirt with a quote that so honestly says how I feel. So I turned it into an image that I could use to motivate myself...
I need to remind myself of this regularly.
What do you guys do when you need to motivate yourselves? I need to just commit and sign up for these races when I get paid on thursday! Feel free to call me out on that when I get my Thursday Window Shopping Spree up!
Till next time...
