Pretty much what I look like when I run
Pretty much what I look like when I run
Feeling extra plump today. This weekend we went out of town, always hard to not overeat on delicious food and then HAVE to have a chocolate treat or sugary candy. We swam, but not nearly Gold Medal speed, more like Glenda doing laps at 5 a.m. Soooo, why not sign up for "Cinco De Mustache" A 5 mile run on May 5, starting at 5:05 p.m. Nice sunset run. At the YMCA, for anyone who is interested. I know I can run 2 miles, but haven't ran 5 miles in over a year. So consider my 2 week training starting today. #thethingsido. When I sit here and think 5 miles, I think la-de-doo. When I'm out on the road running 5 miles, I'm like OMG-hit me with a car so I can lay down. Wish me luck. The only real reason I'm doing it is bc were making shirts with mustaches on them and wearing a mustache on our "mustache". Otherwise, to sign up for 5 miles randomly with no theme, with 2-3 weeks before, no thanks sir.

So, 2 weeks ago, I got this revolutionary activity tracking device in the mail called the NikeFuel Band. I have been saving up for it for a couple months, but one day enough was enough and I charged it like it's hot. It is made for the average joe who wants to track their daily/weekly/monthly activities. It's hard to explain, but it's pretty cool. On days I'm really motivated I'm checking it every couple of hours, and on days I'm not motivated, I only update my info before bed. You set a goal, reach it, earn rewards. But it never tells you you are a horrible person! It actually does the opposite. It's like a high tech pedometer. Tracks NikeFuel, Calories Burned, Steps Taken, and when you are finished with the day, you upload your info to your phone or computer and it gives you a wavelength graph of when you were most active during the day. Surprisingly besides my workouts, I'm most active in the morning when I'm pacing around the house forgetting things I need for the day. The only downfall is it can't track biking bc you wear it on your wrist, so I attach it to my foot. And, it tells me calories burned, but doesn't clinch my wrist when I reach for the candy.....bummer! All in all, I like it, I feel cool wearing it, like I am taking action daily on my life and Shawn Johnson endorses it, so I am basically an Olympian. Check it out, it might be just what you need to start the spring/summer right. And you can always race your mustache across the finish line on May 5th.
