I have reconnected with my old lover!

Running and I have had a love hate relationship. I use to  hate running especially when I was in the Army. I think I ran because I had to and to get it over with faster I ran faster. Fast forward 5 years!  5 years, 2 kids and about 40 pounds later-LOL I started running again. I started running maybe 4 months after my 2nd son was born. If felt great. It was ME time out of the house no disruptions!!! I ran at least 2x a week then I joined my first race it was a 5k it was cool then I did another one and another. I then completed my first 10k which is the picture above, and it felt good!
When I move to Florida I fell off. It was 100 degrees in the shade, at 5 in the morning and 11 at night-LOL well maybe not that hot but it was damn hot. I just gave up! I am now realizing I love running again. I do not run the distances I use to only because I need to build myself back up and lose some more weight to be a bit lighter on my feet . I think I will stick to it this time. I use to hate the treadmill but now he and I are friends for HITT training so its the best of both worlds:)

I am officially on shopping Ban!

I need to keep myself motivated on the weight loss journey and I thought what better way to do it than to ban myself from going shopping! Is this going to hard.....YES!!! I live downtown and whenever I go walking I am almost likely to go into a store. I plan on leaving my money at home along with my credit cards. I will only take enough to enjoy a snack if I am hungry.
My ban will be over when I reach 150 pounds or June sometime in the middle of the month when I leave to go to Boston and New York. I figure why buy more now when I can get better items in the states and a better body to make it look good:)
Also as I lose weight I will be able to fit into some of the clothing I have not worn in about 2 years. Hello 7 jeans I am coming to getcha~!
