Guten Morgen ihr Lieben 😊 hier ist es die letzten Tage etwas ruhiger als sonst, aber wie ihr ja vielleicht mitbekommen habt, bin ich gerade auf Mallorca und ich genieße die Zeit extrem 😍 Sonntag geht es zwar schon wieder nach Hause, aaaber bis dahin werde ich jede einzelne Sekunde genießen und dazu gehört auch die ein oder andere Kalorie mehr. 😋
Ich hoffe ihr genießt das tolle Wetter in Deutschland und heute beginnt ja auch schon das Wochenende 😍🌞🎉
“I’ll do it tomorrow” “I have homework, I can’t go to the gym today” “I don’t feel good” “I can’t” “I’ll get up and do it one day” These are the things I used to tell myself all the time which led to me gaining 70lbs after I graduated high school. Making excuses will get you no where, but getting up and exercising, even if it’s for 10 mins will get you that much further than where you were before. You can do this, I believe in you.
You don’t have to go to a gym to get a good workout! 💪🏻 #athomeworkout can be just as effective. I started with 20 min of jump rope and then did a YouTube dance workout (twice). I usually workout outside in the heat because it raises my heart rate and the fresh air is GREAT. Today kicked my ass!
Verspätet ein Schnappschuss von unserem Kurztrip nach Köln ❤😊 Eine wundervolle Stadt, in der wir - wie immer - eine tolle Zeit hatten. Die Woche war mental unglaublich turbulent, fordernd und aufwühlend! 🙈😅 Deshalb war es hier auch etwas ruhiger... Ich denke, ihr könnt das verstehen! ❤Am Ende des Tages sollte man - egal was war - aber trotz allem immer daran denken, wie dankbar wir sein können, dass wir gesund sind! 😊✌🏼 #allyouhaveisnow
Today it is one year ago since i got my sleeve. The road has been like a rollercoaster. I have regret it several times and i think it has been really tough. The kilos hasnt been easy to loose and i fought for every kilo that i lost. Now i have lost 43 kilos but i have 5-10 kg left to get satisfied. It has never been a goal for me to get to normal in bmi. I want a strong body that i can feel totally comfortable in. And i am on my way😃 Today i can look back and say that i dont regret it anymore. And to mark the day i took my first run today. And it felt good😊 My days are filled with healthy food with a lot of proteins, exersice and a lot of actvities with my little family. But it's also filled with an icecream after a bicycletrip and a chocolate on a wednesday if i want it. It is all about the portions. And i want to live my life like i want😊 Looking forward to rest of my life💗
I hit a PR today while running on lunch! I ran 6 miles today in exactly 56 minutes putting me at roughly a 9:20 min/mi. I am getting closer to my goal of running a 7 min/mi consistently. I started to beat myself up because I told myself I could have done better. I had to stop and take a minute and celebrate just how far I have come since last summer.
I went back through my running logs and found one of the first runs I did on lunch last summer. It was 08/14/17 and as you can see below…I ran 3 miles in 1 hour and 6 seconds at 20:06 min/mi. I have trimmed 11 minutes off per mile and have more than doubled my mileage that I can cover on my lunch hour. I decided instead of feeling disappointed that I haven’t gotten into the 8 minute mile yet that I would celebrate just how far I have come in the last 8 months. I have run 619 miles so far this year and have lost 93lbs in the last 8 months. I have been putting in the work!
In the beginning, I ran to achieve specific goals. I wanted to lose weight, get in shape, and get healthier overall. I wanted to be the best version of myself for Kaycie, Noah, and Abigail. As time has gone on and I continue to conquer my goals, I have noticed that my aspirations are only getting higher. I now want to run a race in all 50 states, I want to run a 7 minute mile, I want qualify to run the NYC and Boston Marathons, I want to actually place in my age division in my upcoming races.
I realized today while running that my reason for running has changed. My perception of running has changed. Until this point, running has been my vehicle to weight loss achievement. Now I really don’t have a specific reason to run as I am almost at the end of my weight loss journey. However, my running will not stop. I don’t run because I am training for races. I don’t run because I am signed up for the Run the year 2018 challenge, I don’t run because I want to lose weight. I run because I love to run and it has become very therapeutic for me. I run because I enjoy running. I run 6 days a week, not because I feel obligated, but because I feel privileged and blessed that I am able to run. #runnersofinstagram#runningdad#fromfattofit
Today's top set of deadlifts (365# X 5) AFTER heavy overhead press and the WOD.
Definitely NOT feeling my strongest lately but a weak day in the gym is still better than a strong day on the couch.
So I'll keep movin...
