I love you blog world

Thanks for all of your sweet comments on my blog post yesterday! Pushing through mental blocks is definitely an issue of mine that I want to work on. I know I can run a 12 minute mile without stopping, I just need to get over the mental block.

Yesterday I had an awesome 20 minute weight-lifting session while I waited for one of the treadmills at our apartment gym to be free. I used 15 lb dumbbells instead of the 5lbs I have at home. (Bad idea! I wish our apartment gym had 10's!)

Minute 20-18: tricep kickbacks with a lunge.
Minute 18-16: chest press with dumbbells.
Minute 16-14: tricep dips
Minute 14-12: bicycle crunches
Minute 12-10: Squats with bicep curls.
Minute 10: planks. (kill me now!)
Minute 9: side planks (30 secs on each side)
Minute 9-7: Lat pulldowns (weight machine at the gym)
Minute 7-5: Pec machine (no idea what this is called.)
Minute 5-4: Crunches while doing some tricep thing. (real specific right?)
Minute 4-2: Dead lifts
Minute 2-1: lunges with bicep curls

I did this from memory. I prefer to workout with videos. After the 20 minute weight-lifting sess, I ran 2.25 miles on the treadmill. I ran for 10 minutes straight. I was pretty impressed with myself. After ten minutes, I alternated running 2 mins and walking 1 min. Baby steps people.

I still haven't been food blogging but I have been tracking my eats for my trial run of Body for Life. I'm actually kind of surprised that I haven't been taking pictures. I guess I've been busy. I will share my trial run tracking notes with you Friday morning! Along with a real post. Until then, thanks for being so awesome and helpful!

You're doing great!! It took me a good 2 and a half weeks before I totally got BFL, but things have clicked and I'm just lovin it. Way to go on the workouts, I'm the same way - would much rather workout to a DVD. Anyway, keep up the awesome work and remember I'm always here if you need anything!! :)

I was swamped yesterday - I think when you are in the 5k setting, with everyone running, you might get the motivation to keep going!

Biggest rule though - don't go out too fast, start out slow and speed up when you can - you can do it!

Keep up the good work. I'm pretty sure I couldn't run 10 minutes straight without passing out. Maybe if I were running for my life. But even that's a MAYBE! Ha! :)

You're doing great! Running is totally a mental game. It is so much more than strong muscles but a strong mind too.

Looks like you're doing just fine. you'll get through that mental block. Takes a little discipline to push yourself through that, but when you so it'll be worth it. i've had that happen to me before. It sucked for a while, but i feel like it's just a small phase.
