I'm doing this the healthy way.
Eat right & work out.
I have PCOS, but I try not to let that get to me.

I love to hoop and I hate running, but only because I suck at it. I'm working on running, getting better at hooping, and building some upper body strength.





SW/HW - 203
LW - 169 (10/2011)
CW - 202
Next GW - 180
UGW - 120-ish. I'll see when I get there.
More goal weights added as I reach them.

focusing on other stuff right now


I post bodies, but they're all tagged as "bodies" if you wanna blacklist it c:

A few non running, butt kicking, treadmill workouts.

The treadmill. I also view it as a torture device. But, sometimes it’s your only option for a hard workout when you can’t (or don’t want to) run. Like, when the weather is below freezing. Or when it’s 110 degrees out in Iowa in the middle of summer, and you forgot to pack your running shoes and you had one too many beers (to help down way too many slices of pizza) the night before, and you need to fit into a body conscious dress at your husband’s best friend’s wedding in a few hours. (True story. Here’s the dress. It was pretty darn cute.)

Suddenly, a treadmill, paired with a little creativity, is your best friend.

Here are the workouts.

I finally found it! The perfect post run stretch for people like me, that have been stretching for a while :)

The basic stretches don’t work for me so well anymore, I have been doing them for months and i got some flexibility along the way. But this is perfect! I used it the last 2 days, I love it and it’s under 10 minutes. Yoga after running is amazing. Give it a try!
