PayBox

PayBox

lets see if this takes.
paybox appears to be an alternative or competition for paypal.
I have a lot of WAHM friends so this definitely sounds like a good thing.
I know the last service that came out did good with honoring free $$ giveaways so I'm optimistic for this one as well. Who can sneeze at $50 free.

IIIIII'M Running

again, still? somewhere in there.
I signed up for a 10K and I'm not flaking out on this one. It's tomorrow :)
I picked up my awesome race packet today. I did get a t-shirt which surprised me as I only registered yesterday and was way late for the guaranteed t-shirt cut off. I also got a cook book and reusable grocery bag. I loved my race packet!! The t-shirt is an awesome lime green which I will proudly wear to Logan's soccer game after my race.

I had been doing pretty good picking up my running again and had some routes around the neighborhood all scoped out for the upcoming weeks....then my son got jumped in the neighborhood.
I no longer felt safe running outside alone in the neighborhood. I don't feel safe running alone and don't have any runner friends, I'm not a social runner anyways. Sooooooo I moved it inside onto my treadmill. All my runs are exclusively on the treadmill now. All I need is a decent mp3 player that will actually play using it's battery now. I've topped out at 5 miles on the TM before I get too bored and jump off. I can't wait to see how I do on this 10K.
I've come to the realization and accepted the fact that I am a penguin. I enjoy running much more when I'm not trying to go fast. This will be my first race trying to keep that in mind. I still want to go fast but I feel better when I go slow. I want to feel the way I feel when I'm slow but be fast lol. Though it seems I must pick and choose so I am choosing slow and happy rather than fast and out of breath.

I've been eating horrible lately. I'm addicted to pop tarts *hide*
There I admitted it, now to break it. Today I didn't eat any pop tarts. I ate fantastic actually and I'm super proud. Nothing processed except about 4 mini pretzels from Logan's party mix stuff.
I did walk away the pounds 2 miles today. I've been real lazy with my work outs too. I've only been wanting to run or use my husbands recumbent bike. I need to bust out my videos and do them religiously again. OK done until tomorrow.

slump

I'm still working on learning to maintain my physical fitness and healthy eating without having to track. I refuse to count calories but have learned that I will always have to remain conscious of portion size and what I eat. I still ask myself "how much nutrition vs calories" if there are too many calories with not enough nutrition then I won't eat it, usually.
I get bored running. I love to run. Yep it's a vicious circle lol. I love how I feel after a long run but I'm oh so bored after 30 min's. I love how it makes me sweat and I know I'm killing mega calories thus shrinking those oooh so hated fat cells. I still can't seem to make myself go beyond 30 min's this season. So I run in 30 minute bursts. I am still a slow poke. I get in between 2.5 and 3 miles at a time. I want so badly to train for a half marathon in my mind, but when it gets down to actually doing it, NOPE, not happening.
I love all of my videos. I got too many so thinned out. I still have too many but just can't get rid of any more (the hoarder in me). I kept the ones that I'll use at least once every 3 months.
I have 4 categories: CLX (Chalean Extreme)/Jackie Warner (weights), Jillian Michaels/Biggest Loser (circuit), Leslie Sansone (low impact cardio), Hip Hop Abs/ Zumba (my dancy ones).
I didn't run my 10K this year like I had originally planned. I didn't train properly and we were going on a trip right after so I didn't wanna kill myself with the race. There is an 8K in 2 weeks that I'm debating. I want to do it but really can't afford it. Though I think I really need the race atmosphere at this time. I know I can do 8K which is just about 5 miles. Will I run more than 30 min's in a race? The race itself isn't for a great cause in my eyes so I don't know if I can get myself to spend the $30 to find out.
I've gotten out my raw books again to help me with my veggies and fruits. I've been slacking lately. I know it's time to concentrate more on that nutrition...again. I had swollen feet the other day as a reminder that I really need to do this for my HEALTH. I also need to get myself to a dr and get my numbers checked. U know those general physical things that I've NEVER had a complete one before in my adult life. I want to know my BP, cholesterol, weight vs build etc.
