A Sweaty Sensational Sunday!

I can’t help myself, I have to blurt it out…. I RAN 4 MILES TODAY! Me? **looking from side to side** *pointing finger to self* That’s right, ME and I have PROOF…

My run

Now I did walk twice for about a total of a minute. Once around the 20 minute mark where I really didn’t think I could keep going and then again around 30 minutes. But I kept on trucking! And I’m So glad I did. I feel amazing. (note: the other dip on the chart is a hill, I kept a joggers trot but reduced my pace a bit).

After the run, the husband coaxed me into making Beer Chicken for the third weekend in a row. We made it on the grill again and it was delish! A few hours later the toddler and I snacked on watermelon and made a little popcorn for the GreenLiteBites video of the week!

Before the run, we had a busy morning returning books to the library, picking up some groceries and toys for Irish, then hitting the gym for the Zumba class I wanted to try. My plan was to run yesterday and try Zumba today but I was rained out so both got squished in.

As for Zumba, I can see why it’s getting popular but honestly, I’d rather dance at home. I’m less inhibited, have a 40 pound weight to swing around (the toddler) and can listen to anything I please. That being said, it’s worth a try. I moved every muscle in my body and it felt really good after my crazy weight training session the other day.

Other then that I cleaned house, even though you can’t tell now, plucked some cherry tomatoes from the garden (all eaten by the toddler) and got most of the laundry done. All in all a productive day even though there is still more on my to do list. :~)

I know there’s more to tell you but, honestly, I want to take a bath. I already indulged in some cookies (total conscious splurge, NOT like yesterdays mindless much) and if I don’t make to move towards bed, I can see me reaching again. ;~)

Oh! and I reworked another old post for Empowher, 7 Tips To Stay Motivated During Weight Loss.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Thanks for letting us know how Zumba went! I’m trying to work up the nerve to try a class at my university’s gym.

    And congrats on the run!!! What a great feeling!

    I have a Zumba DVD I got free from Special K. I love it, it’s one of my favs for light days. I didn’t know they had gym classes.

    Glad you had a great run!

    Great job Roni! I am up to 3 minutes of running to 2 minutes of walking. My 5K is in 5 weeks, so I have to pick up the pace – my goal is to run the whole thing without stopping.

    And you had a productive day to boot – nice!

    Congrats on the 45 mins! You’re inspriring me as I enter week 2 of the C25K today. Good for you for keeping at it when you wanted to stop. Thanks for the link to your 7 Tips. I’m entering week 4 of WW and needed the boost. :)

    4 miles AND Zumba!? You’re on a roll and totally deserve those cookies.


    September 8, 2008

    Nothing beats a Berger Cookie… makes me homesick for Eddie’s deli and a visit to Charm City! 3 points you won’t regret…

    Don’t you love your Nike+? I LOVE LOVE LOVE mine. It’s so great to just press that little button and know how far you’ve gone!

    Dancing at home is sooooooooo underrated! Especially with a toddler, or two, or three…..
