Part of my "new" exercise routine for this new year will be changing things up just a little...and sadly...for me...that means adding more cardio to my workout and possibly cutting back on my weight lifting just a tad. Instead of 4-6 sessions of weights a week, I am going to cut back to just 3 times a week, and add 2 sessions of cardio.
Mommy hates cardio. I've even grown to hate Zumba. I know. It's true. But, for ME to LOSE weight, I know I need to up my cardio and keep it consistent.
So this morning, I went for a run. I made my little playlist to go along with my Nike running gps app...which I have talked about before, but it is well worth the $2.99 to purchase it. I love that it tracks my route, I can play my playlist through it, it tracks my pace, shows a map, etc. I have tried other free apps in the past, and none are as accurate or user friendly.
Anywhoozle, I started running to Will.I.Am's new song...so I got a little excited out of the gate and thought I may have to start walking just 1 minute in. I made it though, without stopping, 3.13 miles...half of thosse against the wind. The wind is no joke my friends! I did pass this cute jogger man twice, and managed to say "This wind sucks" to him like I knew what I was talking about. My pace is slow, but it was steady. Upon entering the house I grabbed my water bottle and the bottle of IBprofen. My knees were really hurting for some reason this time...they usually dont bother me.
Hell. I am old.
But I am feeling good spirit wise. I feel like I can stay away from the diet hooch for the day, drink my water, make positive choices.
Here is my Nike GPS app for today:
I am also using Daily Plate/Livestrong app to track my calories. Heather uses it religiously, and I have used to from time to time. We pay for the $2 version...and they recently made it tons more user friendly. Here is the home page on my iphone app:
Some of the songs I have on my running playlist are:
Happy Monday folks. It seems like a lot of us bloggers are recommitting. Let's do this together.
