Cremation Is My Last Hope For A Smoking Body T-Shirt, Hoodie, Tank TopI want this shirt!!!

Straight up, I’m a little bit more like this:

But lately, I’ve been starting to switch to this:

because dang it girl, know your worth and add TAX!

But then this happened:

So the FBI agent in my laptop camera has noticed that I have been running lately, and Pinterest has responded in kind with all these running shirts. It’s been great fun. But really, let’s have a chat about it.

I go through these exercise phases before- Pilates was the last one I wrote about on this blog. It lasted for about six months before I ended it. But mostly because I was leaving Korea where a whole month of classes was $35 (that’s 12 classes! For THIRTY-FIVE DOLLARS!) Of course that’s because I only had to pay 50% since I worked in the building. But still, $70 for a whole month of classes is insane! In Canada, it’s like $20-30 per class. PER. CLASS. Um, no thank you.

That’s not the point – right now I’m in a running phase. I started right after Thanksgiving, so it’s been 2 weeks now. I know – two whole weeks! I’m on a roll! When I started, the first few times out I was going just under one kilometre. Now I’m up to 2! It takes about 20 minutes to do the full 2 kilometres, it’s mostly flat and a nice run. Like one of those shirts say, I do walk a lot of it, but I’m able to go for longer stretches of running every time I go out. The walking is getting less, and when I do walk, that break is starting to become smaller and smaller between running times. I go one night, take two off, and then go again. Except for this week that would have put a run on Friday and I can’t run Friday night so I went yesterday which was only one day of rest but I still was able to run more than on Saturday.

I’m super proud of my self! And, as much as I complain about running sucking the most suck of anything that has ever sucked, I am actually enjoying myself. Which is a nice surprise.

What have you done that you’re proud of lately? I’ve love to hear about it!

  1. I’ve been doing so much I’m proud of which is why my blog has suffered lately (boo!). I’ve had a healthy stock of furniture in the garage I’ve wanted to flip and I’ve all but completed them. I just have to seal 2 nightstands and add hardware and figure out what I’m doing with a coffee table I have. I also just got my motorcycle license and a motorcycle so my new hobby has been joyriding before it gets too cold. 🙂

  2. Yaaaay! Go you.
    Running can be so fun until it gets really cold!

    I’ve just been cycling to work…My motivation is trying to pay back the money I spent on a bike. So each time I don’t use public transport, I count those dollars as being paid off. I’ve been doing that for a year, and it’s half paid for. Woot!

  3. Aww, I’m so glad to hear that! Running is the best sport and I’m always happy to see new people trying it! It’s hard at first, but the way you feel afterwards is so worth it I find… I stuck with running purely for the runner’s high (and the fact that I now run long enough distance to eat candies WHILE I run!)… Good luck with your progress!

      • Hehe eating candy while running?!? You’ve got some skills!

        I’m loving the feeling of accomplishment in myself – is that the runners high? When I started, I could barely run for 30 seconds at a time before switching to walking and when I went on Monday it was a solid block and a half!! Almost a whole Taylor Swift song! Which kind of motivated me cos I told myself once it was over I could stop running. I didn’t make it the whole song but that’s ok haha

        • The feeling of accomplishment is the runner’s high, and the best ‘high’ out there in my opinion! 😉

          Well, yes… Mini Mars bars are my current favourite. Because I run for long(ish) distance up and down mountains, I need to replenish calories quickly so candies help!

          • Ooo then yes! I totally love the runners high too!! Just not last night, I had started on my way back and a muscle or tendon seized up and I had to limp all the way home haha!

            I’m looking for some winter gear, do you have any Canadian companies you’d recommend to look into? Or specific items you love? I just run in tights and a sweater now but it’s starting to get too cold for that.

            And dang! That’s talent!!

            • Aww, bless you! I’d recommend stretching lightly before and after each run. Even if it’s only 2 minutes, it makes a huge difference. I hope you’re not limping anymore! 🙂

              I don’t remember what brands I used to wear back home but I know I used to dress much more than I do here, haha! I’m not sure if you have Sports Experts or Atmosphere shops in Ontario? That’s where I bought the bulk of my stuff. I’d recommend to get a good sweat-wicking base layer and some long tights as well as some thin merino socks. For the rest, I’d either wear a sweater or a waterproof jacket depending on the conditions. A buff (I think Canadians call it neck gaiter) is also useful. I wear mine over my mouth until I’m warmed up to avoid asthma attacks. 🙂 Let me know if you have other questions! I’m not an expert but always happy to help!

              • I do a quick stretch before I head out – and this is the first time this has happened haha I’m still limping a little. It’s not as bad as it was last night that’s for sure! Just tight and tensed up still.

                Thanks for the suggestions! I will definitely look into them 🙂
