#plankaday / #WickedWallies

I have gotten back into Twitter since I have become a #Sweatpink Ambassador.
I realized that the running blog world can be very inspiring and motivating on Twitter. You can see into the everyday lives of these real people attempting to become (and stay) healthy, just like me! I have actually enjoyed "following" new people and getting tips, inspirational quotes, healthy recipes, and constant support and motivation from these new Twitter friends. It feels so great when your post has been retweeted or someone  replies back to your tweet! It has actually helped me to stay on track and keep my mind on what my main focus is. Which is, being the healthiest me I can be! 

In saying all of that, I have been seeing the hashtags #plankaday and #WickedWallies all over Twitter for the past few weeks. I had to dig a bit to find out exactly what it was, but basically it's just people doing a Plank a day (duh!) and then doing Wall Sits. They time themselves and see how long they can go with each and then post it on Twitter!

I decided to give it a try last night! Don't Laugh!

Yes. Those are seconds...not minutes! HaHa! :)
I posted it on Twitter saying At least I tried!
And I did! I tried my best for the first time doing either! 

I also have decided to start doing Kettle Bell Swings every night! I started with 25 tonight and plan on working my way up slowly to 50 a day! :)

My version of every night, sadly, means when I actually remember! I know that I will get motivation when I see all of the other people showing their times on Twitter though! The competitor in me will come out and I will want to do it! Just to say I did! I'm hoping to increase both times to a minute! That's my first goal! Then I will go from there! 

I'm excited to have a new challenge! I am hoping it will help in my running. I know your core is very important in running, so hoping all 3 of these exercises will help me to improve! :)

Thanks Twitter friends for being there to motivate me and push me to try something new when I just want to sit on my big booty! :)

Have any of you ever heard of #plankaday or #WickedWallies?
Anybody willing to take on this challenge with me? :)

Cowtown Half Recap!

On Sunday, February 24, 2013 I ran my first official Half Marathon!  Before the race started, I met up with these fellow MRTT ladies!  Pic from How My World Runs It was freezing cold (yes 33 degrees is freezing to this Texan! haha) and I was hoping it wouldn't warm up too much because I run so much better in the cold. I ended up wearing my jacket the whole time and was completely comfortable! We had a wind advisory in affect and I think the wind made it even cooler. This was also my first time to run with my new haircut and with my hair down! Didn't bother me at all! Short hair for the win! :) I was in the very last Corral to start. Yes, I know I'm slow. Get Over it!<---Saw that saying on several shirts throughout the race!  Looks like I need one! haha :) I had to post this pic, because I have no idea what I was doing, nor remember even taking it! Haha! About 20 min before the race, I headed to the porta potty's. Yeah, I should have

Starting over with something new.

Way back in 2012 I started running...for reals... I ran my first Virtual Half Marathon in June and then in the Fall, I started meeting up with a Moms RUN This Town friend 3-4 days a week to walk/run 3-4 miles with our kiddos in the stroller. We started training for the Cowtown Half Marathon and I started dropping weight. By December, I had lost 35 lbs (this was total since having Sophie, not just in 2-3 months) and I looked the best I had looked in a very long while. Then I ran the Cowtown Half in February of 2013, hurt my hip, stopped running, walked the Dallas Rock N Roll Half a month later and then stopped running for good until August of 2013. I then started trying to pick it up a bit here and there while also participating in Stroller Strides.  The thing is...I started gaining weight once I stopped running. Didn't matter if I was doing stroller strides. I just kept getting bigger. First it was just 10 lbs. I kept it at that 10 lb weight gain from August until January
