Added some distance and improved my time. I think I’ll add another loop around to get over the 2 mile mark. Should be able to get that done in 30ish minute area. Saw a few fellow joggers this morning, which was nice. Loving the new neighborhood already! #fitness #cardio #lovingit  #jogging #newneighborhood #seahawks #gohawks

Oh thanks!!!

Did a little exploratory walk this morning. I think I’ve found a good route around our new neighborhood. Since that was short I decided to walk during lunch. DC is a great city for walking, so I decided to break out from the CH area.

Yay! I’m so excited for the weekend. Some substantial time in the house and finishing our cleaning of the apartment. It’s going to be amazing to be fully out of there. I hope you all have an amazing weekend! Oh and of course, go Hawks!

When you want a change you just have to fucking do it.

She has worked so hard already and keeps kicking ass every day! kristindoeshealthy is easily one of my favorites and seriously motivates and inspires me all the time. If you need some regular inspiration from an amazing girl, make sure you follow her!

I want your opinion!

Moving out of the apartment means also losing my gym. I’m not quite convinced I want to pay for a gym membership just yet. That being said, I want to know which dvd workouts do you like best? Looking for minimal equipment required. Thanks in advance!

I haven’t been very active on here but here is a picture of my Friday and Saturday. I am sore and tired. Going to take a walk around the neighborhood this evening to figure out a good jogging path.
Pre-closing jog! Last jog I will have on the old apartment path. It was not my best but I will take it. Got my heart pumping and blood flowing for 30 minutes. It’s what I needed to start this crazy day! Also, Happy Blue Friday everyone!! #fitness #cardio #jog #sweat #polarft4 #health #seahawks #gohawks #12thlady #bluefriday #imsoexcited
Forgot to post yesterday!! A much needed workout and hard earned sweat. Felt great. #fitness #cardio #legday #marvel #femmefatale #jeangrey #blackcat #blackwidow #hellcat

You’re human and feeling envious of someone’s results is natural. Don’t let it make feel bad about yourself. What you need to do is allow it to motivate you. Everyone is on their own journey but it’s okay to use someone else’s success and results to fuel your fire! Go get ‘em!!

Life is really crazy right now, so I apologize for my absence. We close on our house this Friday and will be trying to move all our stuff there Saturday. What this means is two full-time working adults are going to be spending the majority of their free time packing and cleaning. It’s hard not having any family here. These are the times you rely on those obligated to love you, for help. Haha that sounds awful but if either of our parents were here, they’d be the first to arrive to start loading a moving truck. It makes you realize how hard it is to venture out totally alone.

Whatever the case…we’re doing it. I’m going to be tired. I’m going to skip workouts. I’m going to probably eat bad food. It will happen and I’m going to acknowledge and accept it now. I’m going to try to keep my breakfast and lunch in check. I have sole control over those. Dinners may be a crap shoot but I’ll try to stay good. I’ll commit to hitting my step goal every day before I leave work. I can do that. Wish me luck. :-)
