#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? :)

WooHoo! 
Now, as I have promised, I have a pair of Compression socks OR sleeves to giveaway from PRO Compression!

This is what PRO Compression has to say about how they work:
"PRO Compression socks are designed specifically to deliver both maximum comfort and speedy recovery times. The science is complex, but benefits such as improved blood flow, stability and comfort are universally understood.  The moment you put these socks on your feet and incorporate them into your game, you will feel and understand the difference."
I have 4 pairs of PRO Compression Marathon socks and I LOVE them! They have been wonderful for recovery after my last two halfs and after my long training runs!
I didn't own any after my first half, and it took me almost 2 weeks until I could …

Big News!

One of the reasons I haven't been blogging much is because we just bought our very first house!!! Isn't it beautiful!
We don't move in until next week, but buying a house has taken a lot of time! I've been packing our apartment up a little at a time, but we still have A LOT to do!
It's hard to move with a toddler, because you don't want to shake their world up too much. They need their usual toys and to be able to find their favorite shoes amongst the boxes. Taking it slow and moving a little at a time just seemed like the best option.
We are going from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 4 bedroom home!  With a backyard! Down the street from a park! We are going to have so much space!  Being able to go outside in the back and down the street to the park is a huge deal for me!  Sophie and I LOVE being outside! I am so excited! I just can't even describe it! lol :)
And that's not all of the big news!
I also got a job!
It is an office job, where I will be doing t…

Some of my Favorite Things!

I just wanted to share some of my favorite Running gear right now! :)
I'll start with the one thing that everyone knows I already love...
My BOBRevolution SE!
I've been using it for a a few weeks now and I'm still in Love! I'm not sure how I've lived without it these past 15 months! You can read my BOB "review" here! :)

My newest favorite thing are my hotpink Locklaces!

They are elastic shoelaces that  tighten by a "lock". They make it easy for me to just slip my shoe on and go! They are also wonderful because I have had issues with my shoelaces being too tight on the top of my foot and these fix that problem! No more pain! I wish I had known about these forever ago! I will have them on all of my future running shoes!
I love their moto!
Now onto something that I think every single person who is active outside should own. Pepper Spray.
In this case the Personal Saver and the Wrist Saver.
This i the Personal Saver I carry it on my keychain everyw…
