I Jogged!

Saturday, March 13, 2010

So, there's the 5k at the end of April that I may no longer be able to run in because, lo and behold, I have my exit exams that weekend. Although, I hope to be SO thoroughly prepared that... I can take a couple of hours to jog for a bit with Christine and Chris, do a quick and yummy and healthy breakfast, and then home to keep cranking.

But! Today! So last night was a total fat night. I couldn't find anything I was dying to wear, I didn't feel cute, I felt all frumpy. But had an amazing meal with Ariel, so that worked out well.

I woke up this morning, rather rudely awakened this morning by a text. I was thinking, ok, get up, go do a 20 minute jog to get the body going and get some stuff done. I then had a total fat attack of, it's going to jiggle everywhere. What if people are down there to see? Had to power through 10 minutes of that. Ggggrrr. But!

I got up, got my clothes on, went downstairs, and started doing it. In walks a HOT guy. Oh man. Almost had another attack. But... screw it. I'm there to get healthier. So what if I got some jiggle? So I kept right on jogging.

And ended up doing a whole 15 minutes of the 22 (including cooldown) jogging! Slow mind you, but I've never wanted to do it for speed. My goal has always been to just be able to jog for 30 minutes to get a high calorie burn in a short amount of time on days where I don't have time to do anything else. Heck, even 20 minutes. And I'm well on my way!!! Awesome!!!

Going to get up early and do it again because I persevered and made it! And got past the mental hang up of I got jiggle. Bring it on! I can be healthy and do it all!

P.S. "relationship" update... he told his best friend (other than me and who's male) that he's dating me. Wowie, I got yanked out of the closet, let's see if I get dusted off and shown to the world emoticon.

    Run, Morgan, Run!!!

    I had to have the same mental discussion with myself when I started joggin on the treadmill at the gym - truth is, if people are there to look at you and worry about your jiggle before they worry about their own...well, it's just not worth your time to worry about them. Focus on you and your 15 minutes!! Then make it 20...and on and on and on...eventually, no jiggle to speak of :) Ta-dah!!!

    Love that "the boy" had a "man" moment, too :) He might be smarter than I gave him credit for after all! LOL emoticon

    I was feeling pretty down this morning (because of all the stresses you know I'm always complaining about, lol) and this just motivated the hell out of me!
    THANKS!!!!

    I've heard it can be done (jogging), and I hope one day it will be done by me. :)

    Congrats on being let out of the closet.

    YOU GO GIRL!

    Oh that's good relationship news! And yay for 15 minutes!!! Just think how much calmer you'll be for your exams if you take the time to do the 5K? Of course, I totally get the cramming thing. You'll have to decide when the time comes but you will totally be prepared for it!

    Great job -it's so hard sometimes to work out at the gym! If your race is around DC- I love the Diner in adam's morgan! They have great egg white veggies, oatmeal and yummy wheat toast! When I have local races or sometimes after my long runs on Sunday-I go there for brunch! Good luck with keeping up your great running!

    Way to go! The mental battle is the hardest one, and you pushed yourself to get up and out. You're very inspirational to me... I think I'm going to throw my running shoes on RIGHT NOW!
