Day 2! WOW I am sooooo sore!! Running on the road is so much different that running on the treadmill! Seriously I am so stinking sore. I was shocked this made me this sore! lol But I know that this too shall pass. I stretched a lot today. Thanks for that advice I got from several people today on FB and Instagram. I will stay on top of that. Got another 2 miles in today. I am still kinda in shock that I have done this too days in a row now!
This 1st picture is me all bright and cheery and smiley because I haven’t run yet 😉
I am thankful to live on a back country road where I can run without too much traffic.
This is me at the 1 mile mark. Still smiling. It was much warmer today than it was yesterday!
I was a little more confident running today so I knocked a few seconds off.
This is my face when I see the hill I have run up.
And my final time today for 2 miles! woohoo!
So Lots of water and lots of stretching!
Thanks for reading!
I have been feeling so uninspired in my health and fitness journey. I have tried and tried to get back on track in the past couple months and just can’t make anything stick. I have been really focusing on asking for something to come to me to get me out of this rut.
While on Instagram I started having a lot of runner’s popping up in my newsfeed. They all look so happy! They are always running forever and ever and smiling about it! There is such a sense of community around it with all of them. It just started calling to me. Its been over a week since I started digging and fact finding about the benefits of running. I feel such a huge pull to do this.
I feel like I can hugely benefit from the mental and physical aspects of being a runner. So today after much procrastination I laced up my shoes. Downloaded and app. Put my head phones on and I RAN! You guys I RAN!! I overcame my fears and my doubt that I could go for a long run and not die lol. I know this might sound silly to some but It was just me getting a wrapped up in my head.
So this is day 1. I logged my first run. I ran and I walked and I ran and I walked. My first mile took me over 12 minutes. But its my starting point and I am so excited to watch myself improve!
If any of you reading this are runners and have any tips or advice for me I would greatly appreciate it! Please leave it in the comments below!

Hey Ladies! I just wanted to do a quick post showing you what a huge difference and little lip stick or lip gloss can do to change up your make up look. I snapped this picture of me before putting on my NYX lip gloss and then after below. It’s amazing! Brighter cheeks, my skin looks more smooth, and I look a little more tan!
Don’t be afraid to add a little color to your lips and define that smile 😉

Here is a little glimpse into my Upper Body Work from Yesterday. My husband Stephen is amazing and so full of knowledge when it comes to working out so I love that I have him as a personal trainer if you will. He walked me through a killer work out making sure that I hit all the different muscles in my shoulders the right way. It still hurts to lift my arms up!
Here are some Front Raises
Shoulder Press is one of my favorite weight lifting moves. If It looks like I am in pain it’s because I am! lol
This is probably one of my favorite side effects of working out. My sons want to come back and do what mommy is doing 🙂
Then we always have our audience lol Gunner just dying for me to throw his toy and Boo Boo his back up Dancer.
