You are what you eat

Yep that sure makes a lot of sence. And it shows me why I haven't lost much lately. Been eating too much from the right side and not enough from the left.  But that's changeable.

I have a problem doing it 100%, so far it's 90%

So far I can keep up clean eating 90% of the time.
I need to work on the last 10%.

I can jog for 8 minutes. That is totally cool. On wednesday i'm going for 12. YAY!

Tomorrow I am going to do strength training.

I've made the decison to up my exercise. A daily routine would do me a ton of good!

I want to get ride of the flab. And the only way to do it is healthy eating and exercise. So off I go.

Oh another diet tip:

A good diet tip

My thoughts on Diet Shakes in Cartoons. . . .



The longing of Running

Reading this motivatinal quote and loking out at this beautiful day I realise how true it is. I haven't had a run in a week and a half due to a sore throat. And now I really long for one. So here I am wondering if I should just take up where I left off or aim to try for where I should be now. 
Rereading the quote again I realise I want to try the day that I should be at by now if I didn't take the break due to being "sick". 

After all I am :

Or at least that's what I want to be.  ;o)
But blonde not dark. *chuckle*

And after all:

Oh yeah I sure am. 

I am a wonderful strong woman. No problem with tooting my horn there. And I will run. Maybe not today but I will tomorrow at the latest. First I am ging to nurse my headache. I will do some planks though. And I will check out a core strengthening work out. I want to bust the flab!

Women are all super Heroins!

running clothes

I'm getting serious about the jogging thing. I'm following my plan and i'm planing my first 5 or 8k in July.
So today I was looking at running clothes. I would love some running pants/tights for the spring. I already have shorts for the summer. I bought them last year.
So i'm saving up to get me one pair and one more running shirt. Those things are terrific! They keep the sweat off my skin and i'm still warm. A big plus considering that it is windy and cool outside at 6:30 a.m. here.

After my night shift today i'll be off running again. It's 2 to 2 and that 6 times. I have my clothes set up and my shoes ready. So no excuses.

Now time for dinner. Potatoe and baked beans.

My work outs and weekly goals

It's a bit difficult to figure out when to do your work outs when you have different shifts. I have a early, late and night shifts and inbetween shifts too. And sometimes it is hard to figure out when you can/want to do what.

When I have the night shift it's easy. I do my work outs after work. I usually sleep until 4 or 5pm afterwards. When I have the the late shift I experiment if doing the work outs before or after work is better or not. Up until now before has been pretty good.
When I have the early shift I do my work outs after work. I get up at 4:45am then already so getting up earlyer is a no way for me. And I feel better most times working out after work. I can get ride of all the stress from work.

And now not only am I doing the running work outs no now I am also doing bootcamp. Daily. 10 to 20 minutes a day.

Hmm maybe people are right and I am kind of nuts. But that's ok. I want a good looking body and this is what I have to do for it. And I want to participate in the women's run in Frankfurt and that is also what I have to do for it. So all I am really doing is following my goals. And that week for week.
