(I posted a progress update today on my Weightloss Wanda channel so check that out here if you're interested)
This nicely sums up how I felt about running a year ago. I admired others who ran, but never really took to it.
However, since January, I've been adding weekly runs into my workout routine and I find them satisfying and an effective way to burn calories. Lately there are many occasions where I'm eating high calorie foods and/or drinking wine or beer. It's summer! I'm in Germany! The German football team just made it to the quarterfinals!
see what I mean?!
Speaking of the German National Team,
have you met Mario Gomez?
He's been featured on my blog &
is a popular theme in my twitter feed
My husband gave me a totally fun & kitschy Mario Gomez puzzle yesterday that made me laugh & love my husband even more for being a good sport
So back to running!
I've been running everyday for the past week in preparation for our France vacation in July. As you can see from my photo above, there will be a lot of French cooking going on.
I do not plan on watching what I eat, but I do plan on running and exercising everyday. Double bonus is that my runs will be in the beautiful French countryside!
For dance, zumba or step class a regular sports bra from Target will do the job, but for running I splurge on NIKE's victory sport bras. The compression fit gives a lot of support and there's no chaffing or irritation!
In terms of playlists while running I'm obsessed with Sarah's mix over at www.whoorl.com ! I plan to add my favorites shortly, but I can say when I run I like a lotta pop music :-)
Hope you are all doing well, BHB
