Hey! It's May!

And that means that I completed my first month of obsessive compulsive running! In other words, I had challenged myself at the end of March to run at least three miles 5-6 times a week throughout the month of April. And I did it! So yay me. I even upped my mileage to four miles a run. (In actuality I run 2.5 miles, walk for .5 and then run another 1.0 for the grand total, but still... )

So now what? Well, for starters I'm loosening up and only going to the gym four times a week this month but still hopefully logging four miles visit. If I may channel the great Ms. Britney Spears for a minute, "Gettin' in shape is HARD y'all!" But seriously, it really is. I'm finally starting to see some results at least so that is giving me a boost. I'm still wearing the same size jeans but I've built up a ton of muscle and I just feel and look more toned (dare I say buff?) over all. I am also aware of how much more muscle weighs than fat so I have banished the scale from my bathroom. And I haven't changed how i eat at all really because, frankly, running makes me HUNGRY. Ravenous may be more like it. Hopefully all this muscle I've built is burning more calories during the day because I'll be damned if a Chipotle Burrito Bol isn't one of the best things you could ever eat in the history of the world. So. Good.

So anyway, I'd probably be further along in this body transformation thing if I could stop eating so much, but news flash- I kind of love to eat. The few times I've dieted in my live I've been successful but that's because I ate next to nothing at all during those times and I have no desire to do that right now seeing that running requires FUEL. And Culver's. Speaking of which, is on it's way to my house right now courtesy of my wonderful husband who probably likes to eat even more than I do. In fact, I'm sure of that.

And on that note I will now prepare to eat cheese fries and watch America's Next Top Model. I think Tyra Banks would approve.
