Fitness Blog

So, my sister told me that I should create a blog to keep my fitness and my personal life separate. So, here it is, my attempt to do it. Hopefully those that followed me at my other blog will continue to this one, and will check in on that one to check in on my sweetness. Hope you like the name of the blog. In 2 weeks I am going to an open house to get information on becoming a certified personal trainer. I will definitely use this blog as a transition to that, and all other journeys between.

Today, I ran 9 miles pain free. For those of you that know me, this is the longest I have ran since 3 weeks before my first half marathon back in April. So, since March. I am excited, looking forward to seeing how the continued training will go.  One of the biggest things that I have noticed this time is that need to supplement my runs.  Last week, for the first time, I tried these things.  Let me just tell you, these things are wonderful. They taste just like candy. Anyway, last week I tried them and while I didn't notice a huge difference with my run, I didn't notice any tiredness either; well compared to this run anyway.  For my run today, I didn't have them. I felt sluggish after it, and really really tired. Not like last week. So while I didn't notice a huge spike in energy last week, I definitely noticed how depleted I was this week. So, looks like those bad boys will be added to my running arsenal.

Since I am speaking freely about fitness and healthy eating, I also have noticed how the harder I work the hungrier I get. I believe it is called rungry. I don't want my appetite to offset all of the hard work I have been doing, so I try to eat healthier while making sure I am eating because I am hungry, not just because I am bored. So, instead of snacking on junk, I had some of this...

Ehh, I am surely not going to buy this brand again. I may either have to learn how to make my own, or buy a huge vat from Saladworks. It wasn't a pretty color nor did it taste as creamy as I think it should have.

Well, I better go. I have to keep up with my Sept Ab challenge that I am doing. Feel free to join in. Oh, and don't forget to check in to my other blog to see how the lovely M is doing!
