from dreams to reality...

on thursday, i did something i've never done before. i went for a jog. let me start by saying that for the past year or so, about once a week i have a dream that i'm out jogging. it's freeing, it feels great, and i'm just letting go of my stress. so, i wanted to start jogging in real life, not just in my dreams. i want to be able to get out there and just run for 1/2 an hour. currently, i can't run the span of 10 houses in the city where they're like 3feet apart. that being said, i need a partner in this, right? it certainly makes things easier. so, after renewing my passport (yay for only taking 30 minutes!), dylan wanted to get some new runners. dylan is no ordinary guy, so obviously he couldn't go for ordinary runners.
enter vibram five fingers. and a new shirt to match.
too legit to quit.

we put on our gear and off we went. we were probably only out for about 15 minutes and did our own version of walk/run. basically, when i thought i was going to die, i would walk for about 45 seconds and then pick it back up. i was saying things like "bikini. i'm in a bikini. i'm running on a  beach. this is fun. my jeans will fit nice. red velvet cake. no, no, carrots!!" out loud and trying to take my mind off the pain. oh the pain. my legs were so sore for a good 3 days. but, it can only get easier, right? right?!

Red velvet cake is great motivation :) I had a red velvet cupcake this morning, well half of one, but still. It was mighty tasty!

Bikini is all I say to myself when I'm working out! It's all the motivation I need. Ha!

haha so funny. red velvet cake.. no, no carrots! Love it. Keep running girl you can do it but also the point of running is also being able to indulge in a yummy dessert every once in awhile

All "winter" I told myself that I should start jogging around the block (as a start) when the weather got nicer but I have yet to do so. I really do want to teach myself to enjoy it or at least not dread it. Clearly my attempt to motivate/blackmail myself with a Lululemon purchase if I succeed isn't working LOL
