A Running update!

I thought I would give you all an update on my quest for fitness! So far it is going great! I started on July 4th and logged a run of 2.14 miles in 36 minutes and 32 seconds! To be honest, I was just happy to make it back to my house without having to call a cab (or an ambulance)! 11 days later (today) I ran 2.08 miles in 30 minutes and 58 seconds! I am happy with my progression and I know that it will only get better as I go.

There have been some issues along the way like the blister that appeared on the bottom of my left foot and some chaffing that was taken care of by a pair of Under Armor shorts! Then there was three days of muscle soreness that I had to overcome but, all in all, it has been a great start to a great life change! I may even be able to run my first 5K by September if I work it right and train properly.

My eating habits have changed and I now view food as fuel and not comfort when the world is caving in around me (That is a story for another post). Do I deprive myself? HECK NO!! I am good every day but on Friday I allow myself to have my favorite local pizza! I keep Ben & Jerry's in the freezer for when I need it but only eat what is within the parameters of my daily calorie intake (and not everyday in huge amounts). I am toning quickly and the weight is starting to come off! I have lost about 6 pounds so far and still going! I cannot wait to reward myself with a new wardrobe at the end of this journey!

I will try to update my progress on a weekly basis! If you have any running or nutrition tips, please feel free to comment! I need all the help I can get!
