Week 4 Update.....

Pretty sure I was MIA for week 3.  Not from the diet, just from the blog.  :)  Here is a short version of what I have been up to for the past week or so. 

Swimming lessons for 2 weeks......which meant driving to town every day 22 miles one way.  Fun times.....but the kids won't drown if thrown into a lake so that's a bonus.

Women's ranch rodeo......reunited with some of my best friends for a weekend of roping, tying down steers and branding calves.  So much fun!!

In between all these shenanigans, we are still chasing down our dogs every now and then when they decide to run to the neighbors.  Fuckers are pissing me off.  What really makes me angry is when I go to pick them up and they act all happy to see me.  No regret on their little faces, no remorse, just tail wagging and sloppy kisses like it's my JOB to pick them up from the neighbors.  Which I will continue to keep doing along with googling every possible way to keep them from exploring the world. 

Take Shape for Life Update......down 10 lbs in 4 weeks!  Still love the food, minus a few things that I just won't order next time.  Best thing mom is joining me!  She just started last Monday and by last Friday she was already down 8 lbs!  Holy craziness!  Shoot me a message if you want any info on this awesome way of getting healthier.  Or just check out my site....  Take Shape For Life

A few of my favorite running quotes........

I love motivational quotes, pictures, sayings.  They're good for the soul and make me feel like I can accomplish what I set out to do.  I used some when the volleyball season started this year and it really helped the girls see they can accomplish what they set out to do.  Here are some of my favorites!!

I love this one!!  People constantly tell me they have no time for exercise.  They assume since I am a stay at home mom that I sit around all day with hours of free time.  NOT.  I know alot of people who are really busy that still find time to exercise!!

Just found this one today!  Love it and it will be on my fridge soon!

Or a bigger one.......which I think is happening to me.  :(

The "for the rest of your life" kinda scared me at first.  :)  But it's the truth.  If you want it you have to work for it!

I tell myself this when I want to quit.

I've started and now I know that I won't quit!  I love running and I love how it makes me feel!

Ode to the running shoe.......

Size 11.  And I'm not referring to my pant size.  That's my ginormous shoe size.  Who cares, you say!  I care.  I'm 5'3".  Yeah, you read that right.  I wear a size 11 shoe have a head the size of a watermelon and nothing in between stretched far enough to be called tall.  When my husband and I were dating, my future MIL asked me why I was wearing his shoes.  And she wasn't joking.  Not only are my feet huge, they are flat as a pancake.  I'm also bow legged and pigeon toed.  Major problem.  I was so bow legged when I was little my parents had to put Forest Gump braces on my legs at night to sleep.  Seriously.  And "f" off for laughing!!!!!   I have a hell of a time finding the right shoes.  Nothing was different when I began the search for the "perfect" running shoe.

We live on a ranch 21 miles from the closest town and 100 miles from a Walmart.  I rarely run on pavement.  This is my running "track" most days and while I love …

Taking a run on the dreadmill.........

This is sorta how I feel when I have to run on the treadmill.   I've come to dread it!!  I would much rather run outside, but there are days when I just have enough time to run upstairs and start up the treadmill.  I try to watch mindless reality tv that requires no deep thought or concentration.  What I usually end up doing though is watching my mileage and at the EXACT moment I hit my target for the day, I hurtle myself from that damn machine.  Literally, I cannot get off fast enough. 

A few weeks ago we spent the night at my MIL's house.  She just got her home gym all set up and so I used her treadmill for a quick workout while I was there.  I despise her...............because she has a BITCHIN treadmill.  Seriously, felt like I was floating on a cloud instead of pounding the concrete like mine now feels like after experiencing HEAVEN on hers.  This is how I felt while on the BITCHIN treadmill.
No REALLY!!!!!!!!  It was like I was outside cause it has one of those monitors …
