Hi there! It has been a while. I missed you guys! So…where have I been? Well it has been almost a year since we last spoke. I went through a break-up, moved three times, changed jobs, oh and even moved to the Upper West Side.
My gym is now Crunch. Overall, I have to say, I am happy with my life. I am dating a new guy and he COOKS FOR ME 🙂 Yes, that’s right. He treats me with respect, he doesn’t cheat on me, and he shows how much he cares for me and makes me feel beautiful inside and out. I have a lot more self love going on now. I feel happier and like I am totally worth it.
When you go through a break-up and realize how bad things were it takes a while to get out of that whole funk. I’m not sure if I’m 100% mentally there, but I think it gets easier as time goes on.
Stella is healthy, I am healthy, and now I am vegan :). With all the crazy changes in my life, new friends, new parties, single life, now dating life, I gained a little bit of weight… Let’s be real, who am I kidding, I gained close to 25 lbs.
Something sparked me to look at this blog and it gave me so much motivation seeing how far I had gone in such a short time. Seeing the goals I crushed and good I looked. Now that I am fully and truly happy with my life, I think it’s time to get the fitness back on track.
On Thursday is my 26th birthday and for the month of September I have a few goals I am going to push.
- Run at least 3 times a week
- Try one fitness class a week
- Do at least one outdoor run
Last night I went on my first run/walk. I finished close to 5 miles. My feet ached, this was after a day of walking at least three miles after brunch. The scenic view was gorgeous. We ran on the boardwalk that is adjacent to the Hudson River.
I am such a sucker for a gorgeous sunset. My friend runs a little slower than me, which is totally fine. We did one minute run, one minute walk until we reached 20 minutes and then we just walked all the way back. I think I need to stretch better, because the back of my knee muscle really hurt and it is way too early to get injured.
Tomorrow I am going to start doing morning runs. They are going to be short. We are going to start with 30 minutes and then do some leg weight workouts to strengthen my legs, so they don’t buckle down when I run.
So here is 4.49 miles for the books.
until next time.
