Off to a…start. :)

Yesterday was a day I did NOT want to get up and run!!  I waited until the last possible minute and then went…while it sprinkled!  haha!  It was BEAUTIFUL outside!  I run WITHOUT an ipod.  This started after reading a Runners world article about it.  I thought I’d try it…on a 6 mile run.  It’s all about focusing on your footfalls and really meditating. 

I needed that yesterday.  It was my day to run 10 minutes, walk 3, run 10.  (ok…not run…jog!).  On my last 10 minute jog I had a text message and somehow turned off my stopwatch on my phone…so I wasn’t too sure how much longer to go.  I looked up the hill I was running and decided to make it to the top.  It was HARD…as I was running I wanted to stop so many times.  I knew I had already passed my 10 minute mark…but I wanted to make it to the top.  A nagging voice kept saying, “just stop”.  Usually I listen to that voice (or I have during this “unfit” stage of my life).  But yesterday I thought about something that I saw on Pinterest…  “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone”.  I want my NEW FIT life to begin…and I KNOW it takes hard work and commitment!  Running up that hill was a few minutes past my comfort zone…and it BEING a hill was way beyond comfort.  But let me tell you…I felt SO empowered when I reached that Farm Road 401 sign!  I felt FREE of the nagging voice! 

Today I actually looked forward to waking up and doing my ChaLean Extreme workout!  Lifting heavy is what ALWAYS puts my metabolism into overdrive and it felt FANTASTIC! 

Yesterday I tried Greenberry Shakeology with 1/2 cup of Orange Juice.  It was good…and different.  It is a REFRESHING drink…very different from the Chocolate.  I’m not going to lie…I much prefer the Chocolate with a splash of milk.  However, I can see on some mornings that I might want the Greenberry.  I’m going to try it with some strawberries next time!  Today was the pure chocolate and it was AMAZING!!!  Natalie took a few sips and loved it too!  haha!

On to other news…  P90X2 is available for preorder!  It looks incredible!  If you or someone you know loved P90X…this is something you NEED!  It takes it a notch higher.  If you preorder P90X2 from me, you get free shipping, 2 free P90X2 DVDs and you are guaranteed to get it before 12/25/2011.  Anyone who doesn’t preorder isn’t guaranteed that…something to think about!  This link takes you directly to my  page :)

And…here’s a little inside view at it!

  1. Hey Janet - Thanks for sharing this - we all definitely have days we don't want to "push play" or go for that run. It's important to know WHY you're doing it and from your last post, I can tell that you have a very strong WHY!

    By the way, I'm pretty sure that if someone orders P90X2 from you they are guaranteed to get P90X2 by 12/25/2011 - which is sooner than 2012 :)
