My October Miles 2017

Hi!

October was a slow training month. After been active 5 months training for the 5k event I did. I have a post with the recap if you want to know a little bit more about my second 5k this year (Click Here). I lower the miles and days to run during this month, but in general was a good month in the training area.

I ran a total of 12.14 miles in 9 runs.

I was supposed to train more for a 5k I want to participate during the month of November but I change my mind and I take it easy. My goal for October 5k was running without stopping thing that I achieve but It wasn’t the same goal for the November event so I just want to enjoy it and maybe accomplish a better time. Let’s see what happen!

 

About my October Goals: (Click Here to see the goals post of October 2017)

I kept training and I going to keep running. It doesn’t matter if I had an event or not. I had drunk more water but I can’t avoid those coca cola days.  I try to workout my core more but it was a little bit during this month. Yes I stretch more during this month It help me a lot with my lower back pain and in general with the runs. The part of stress less and incorporate meditation it work but I may need to improve it.

Go RUN!

Hi!

This is a short post…

This week had been a little busy, crazy and a lot going on…which is good! I still doing my runs in the days I can. On Friday I needed to run, I had one of those days that I need me time, clear my mind, and just be relaxed. My method is RUNNING! On Friday it didn’t happen. So on Saturday I woke up, put on my running clothes and when for a run. In this run a lot happen. I was very committed to run non-stopping and I was focus. You know the mind is powerful.  I ran 1.70mi non-stopping which It never happen before and I have been running short distance since 2013. I stopped for a while and this year 2017 I started again at it. This happen because I was determined that this was the goal, this is what I want. So Is happening!  I completed a 2.75mi. run. It felt and still feels good that I achieve this. This is just the beginning, I’m going for more!!!

I’m not running anymore! (raw)

Hi…

This post is going to be RAW and REAL/ Unedited

I just want to write a little bit about what is happening to me. You know I keep this blog as my journey for running and more stuff. But I haven’t post anything is so long. Also I’m tired of making excuses every post I made about why I’m not running but I wanted to keep it real, this is my real life. Btw… sorry for the dramatic tittle…

Let start!

I movedto this new state here in United States that so far so good. It was a little bit of the stuggle to keep motivated for me and there is many reason that I prefer to keep private but that is not a big deal for me. I’m not putting my problems first, I’m going to put myself first. Yep maybe sound or in this case read a little bit selfish, but if I don’t do it for me how then?

I have gained so much weight since I have the baby that now I’m in my heaviest. (Something that I’m not proud to write) but as I told you I’m going to keep it real. I have try many time to running again since I had my baby girl, but I don’t know Why is so hard to keep going with the motivation, time manage, the house, the baby, the husband. and some people said the house mom is not a work. I work more than 12 hours a day sometimes even more. but let that be another post. I’m not here write about this. I feel like I’m wtiting with someone. It feel so good to have a little time to express myself right now.

Recently I went to my husband work Christmas party. They took family pictures and then print it so we can keep the memory. It was good and fine to me. But there is when I realize I don’t feel comfortable with me, with my skin. I saw the photo, make up on point, good election of clothes, hair on point, even the pose. And there came the but, But my body is not the same, is not what I want. I know that I will never go back to the pre pregnacy weight but DAMN this what a reality check even my family notice. I don’t really care what other think but I knew this is not what I want to look like. Not for somebody, is for me. I always been very activate in sports and I love it but when you lack some motivation is bad you make excuses, a lot of the time to avoid reality.

So the title I’m not running anymore is not forever, but for know I might be concentrating myself to a better diet, eating healthy and doing someting with no so much impact that I might end quiting. Because I know it as a fact.

So this is Raw here:

I have a kidney problems the doctor don’t recommend to drink soda . So I quit drinking soda in 2012 but recently I have been like a crazy craving soda woman, And this is bad fo me. I know it but sometimes I’m not that strong. There is my first Goal. No more soda.

I have a hypothyroidism. Thyroid problem since 2010. I have to keep taking medication and also mantin a diet because this cause a hormonal thing that happen to me with this condition is making me gained wait. Also I’m taking birth control pill that add to my issue too. ( I try to change but the other methods doesn’t work for me). So there is my second Goal Keep taking my medications and have a better diet.

I need to change they way I have been taking care of myself.

I also want to start making exercises 2 to 3 days at week. Something with low impact. ( if you had any recommendation please leave it down in the comment section.)

PS: Sorry for the long post about me but this is real. Also sorry for the grammatic errors or sentence organization. English is not my first language. I also used the blog to practice my writing skills and my husband is not home for helping me with it. so there you have it!

Movember 2013 Challenge Recap

Hi Everyone!

I decided recently that by month I going to have a challenge that I promise to do my best to accomplish. For this month I name it the Movember Challenge in honor of men’s health. I know that men’s that do this challenge, they leave the mustache grow to honor the men’s health month that is November.

I made this Movember Challenge for the men’s in my life; My Husband (Amore) , My Dad (Diddady) and My Brother (Kito).

Movember Challenge Goals and Results

November Miles 2013:  28.78mi
Runs Days: 13
Gym Days: 14

Note: Movember Miles 2013: I don’t pass my goal of making more than 30 miles but it’s okay, because I went also to the gym 14 days.

  1. Running more miles: Done √
  2. Drink more Water: Done √
  3. Do more Abs, Arms and legs: 75% Done. I did more legs and abs than arms.
