Look Better Naked By Jul 30, 2015 14 Comments

At the time of this post, there is still one more day left in July and so far I have managed to log in 39 miles this month! I am still behind my goal for the year with only 89 miles logged (I should be at 212 miles  by this time) but I am totally counting those 89 miles I have managed so far for 2015 a win.

Planning for August my goal is to bump up my wogs to 2.5 mile to 3 miles. Part of it is because The Bee and I are training for a 5K and she signed up for Fall track so I’d like to support her as much as I could. The other is that my study has upped the exercise requirement to 30 minutes a day, five days a week and I have been busting through my 2 miles and need to stay consistent with the program requirements and keep this exercise habit going.

Miles for July

Can we talk about that for a minute, this exercise habit? I cannot believe it but I have gotten to a point where I look forward to grabbing my sneakers and planning a wog. There are still days when I really want to stay in bed but with Ukee Washington off of the news in the AM, there is no reason to fool around catching the latest Philly news. I used to think people were lying or greatly exaggerating when they waxed poetically about running and working out but I will eat crow and admit that my days are quite a delight after I’ve gone out and moved those muscles.

    1. Rachee says:

      Start slow. Seriously. 15 minutes a day. A meal a time. Soon it will become habit and a way of life.

  9. I can’t say that I enjoy running, but I know that I’ve been doing more of it and it makes me feel better these days.

    You are doing a good job and I admire you for being committed to look and stay fit. I walk 3 times a week and I hope to increase it to 5 times, if not everyday.
