Faster Stronger

Ask me anything   Hmmm... Originally this was my blog about running. I was training for a half marathon and trying to lose weight. 3(ish) years later and I've run 2 halfs and 2 full marathons. I have not lost much weight (oops).

But NOW I'm focusing on the stronger part (both physically and emotionally) and trying to drop pounds and tone up for my wedding and the life that follows!

    Bad Habits

    Are hard to drop. Working hard to replace them with good ones.

    Scenes from the 3.5 mile walk with the boy and the pooch today. Prepping ourselves for some honeymoon hiking in Denali National Park.

    T-minus 3 weeks and Alaska here we come!

    So this happened today. A majority trail, hilly 10k that I was entirely unprepared for. But we did it! My goal was  an hour and a half, and I came pretty damn close! 

This was followed by running all over Long Island to get to a bridal shower that was lovely and for a lovely person. 

Soooo hooray on a busy/productive day. Now to lay for a million hours.

    Off track…. Oops.
But when you go for a free salad and a cookie comes with it, how do you turn it down?

    Takeout Order: Old Vs New

    Tonight we ordered pizza. Last week’s order: half a pizza with some sort of meat topping and an order of mozzarella sticks.

    This week: California Chicken Salad (romaine with cucumber, tomato, avocado, grilled chicken and all sorts of healthy deliciousness).

    I also completely ignored the cupcakes in the teacher’s lounge today!

    Coworker walks past me eating (drinking) lunch and says, “you know those shakes don’t work.” Thanks buddy. Keep your negativity to yourself please.

    And just in case I needed motivation to not drink caffeine or eat any junk, my yogi tea has words of wisdom.

    So… I’m generally not a fan of cleanses and supplements like this, but a friend is selling isagenix and has lost about 25 lbs (which is admirable to begin with, but even more so for her bc she’s tiny). 

I got a wake up call in the form of wedding pictures that I wasn’t in love with (more specifically: how I looked in said wedding pictures) and another in the form of the scale telling me that I am officially at my highest weight ever. Like ever ever.  

My goal weight has always been 180 (high range of healthy weights for my height), and I have never been over 100 pounds away from it. Until now.

Hence: Isagenix 30-Day Cleanse. I need the jump start. I need the structure and I need the challenge. I cannot wait to see some progress.

    Faster Stronger turned 4 today! 
I’ve been negligent as of late, but this baby is four now!  It’s crazy how different my life is now than it was then.
