And with 40 minutes of high intensity cardio, I complete Week 1 Day 1 of the 5K Your Way Plan part deux. As I mentioned before, I am going to do the plan again and my goal will be to improve my previous time from each walk. This will keep my momentum going and help me for the two 5k races I am participating in this month. I wanted to try a new workout so I did the Fat Burning Cardio Attack on...
thespartanwarrior: No one got fat in a day, a week or a month. No one gets fit in a day, a week or a month either. Dedication. Perseverance. Execution. You’ll get there, I promise. I need to remind myself of this every single day.
For those of you who followed me from the Do Life page, thanks and welcome. I actually want to thank Ashleyanne (SlowestPoke) for telling me about the great healthy living/weight loss community on Tumblr when I met her at the Do Life 5K.

First of all, do not let her feel bad. Shame on her for doing that. If...

It made me realize that for the past 5...

bendoeslife: Yesterday, as I was in the midst of my 10-miler, I saw a fellow runner. He was shirtless and had all the perfect muscles to go with it. After a 10-second bout of envy, I had three thoughts. 1. The time I put my face on Matthew McConaughey’s body: Not the most profound of thoughts to… Don’t forget how far you’ve come though. Celebrate that as well!
Hard work paid off
You may have noticed that I the past two days I didn’t update on my exercise status. That’s because there wasn’t any. I was supposed to have walked 2.75 miles on Friday and done an hour of cardio yesterday to prepare for my 5k today. I was in a bad place mentally on Friday and after walking about a mile at a slow ass pace, I gave up and went home. I will talk more about that...
I f*cking did it yo! I beat my time by close to 3 minutes. And I even jogged a bit. Yeah, you read that right. I jogged. Need some Gatorade now. More later…
