Happy Fall Y'all!

I'm sitting at Starbucks drinking my very first Pumpkin Spiced Latte of the season.
It is absolutely delicious!
I don't drink them often, because of the thousands of calories, but I do like to enjoy them occasionally!

Plus, my hubby has given me a couple of childless hours and I felt like just sitting somewhere and enjoying it! 

I feel sad that my blog has become neglected.
Every day I have at least 1 or 2 things that I always think in my head...Man I want to blog about this!
Then I forget in a matter of seconds, the day gets away from me, and after 2 hours of trying to get my daughter to sleep, I myself am exhausted and just want to go to sleep!

But I think about it! All the time!

So here is a sort of catch up blog...Again! Please forgive me!

I am still enjoying every work out I do. I am so glad that it has become a habit and a part of my life to where I absolutely miss it and regret it when I don't do SOMETHING each day. 

I have been missing body pump for a couple of weeks, because I can only go on Fridays and I've been babysitting my adorable little niece! I got to go this past friday, though, and since I have been doing other work outs, I got to increase my weight a lot! I was so excited! The warm up weight I usually did felt like picking up a stick! I love feeling stronger!

I've also been going to Stroller Strides and doing a little running when I can! :)
Now that the weather is starting to be amazing in the mornings, I hope to add a few morning runs in again. I was just so over this heat! So glad to see FALL!!! :)

I know Fall is very busy for runners, and I do have a few fun 5K's that I would like to do, but I'm just not into the racing season as much as I was last year.
I am aiming for the Cowtown half (which is in February) as being my next half, and I'm hoping I can be ready by then.
Even with the little running I've been doing, I feel like I'm getting a bit faster because of the weight lifting. I know so many people who have said it really does help a runner. I just always said...Yeah Yeah, I know, but I HATE weight lifting! It's so boring!...But it's not anymore! And to see it benefit my 1st love of running has made me want to do it even more! :)

I haven't even mapped out a training plan yet, but I'm pretty sure I want to do a Jeff Galloway training plan with running and walking. I just seem to do better with some walking breaks in there! :)

So I have to admit...typing all that out has made me so excited for this half!! Yay!!
Oh how I love running! Especially in the Fall! 

I will soon be teaching a Couch to 5K program for Stroller Strides and I am SOOOO excited about this!
I can't wait to show them all how fun running can be!

If you have any coaching experience and have any words of advice or wisdom for me, please share!
This is a new journey for me, but I can't wait for it to start! 

As for the weight loss front.
I have actually gained more weight and still not seeing results.
I guess my next step is to go see a doctor.

I don't like doctors. lol 
I guess I'm afraid of what they will tell me.
And yes I know how ironic it is that I'm a nurse that doesn't like doctors or modern day medicine!
I would just like to do everything as natural as possible at first.
That's why I don't want to do pills or shakes.
But now that I've exhausted all of that, guess it's time to suck it up and go!
I'm ready for some answers!!!

I'll let everyone know if I actually get the courage to go!

For now, I will just enjoy feeling better and keep on doing what I love!
Running and Weightlifting! 

Please go check out the amazing Shubeez and get some bling for your shoes! :)

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 BOB Revolution 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 . Th

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
