Day 1: To a stronger me

I’ve made a pledge recently that I want to be at my strongest and healthiest come time for running my 2nd marathon on February 1, 2015. It’s going to be the toughest battle. Time to cut out a lot of serious bad habits and pick up some good healthy habits. This journey starts today. I have 194 days until my big marathon sequel and I hope I can run that beast with all I have.

DAY 1:

I did a 4 mile run on the treadmill with a 9’56” pace. As much as I wanted to run outside, it’s been storming on an off here in Florida and it’s been extremely hot. I enjoyed having fans blowing on me as I ran indoors. I also did a strength training session.

-bent over two dumbbell row 3×12 20lbs

-straight arm dumbbell pullover on stability ball 3×12 10lbs

-seated dumbbell  bicep curl 3×12 10lbs each

-preacher curl with stability ball 3×12 10lbs each

-crunches on stability ball 3×12

-one minute plank

I think my biggest struggle for this whole change is my diet. I know I can workout until I turn blue. But without having a healthy habitable diet in my daily routine, it may as well be a waste of time. I know eating cleaner is healthier is a struggle. But I’ve been down this road before and I loved the results. Here’s to never letting myself get back in the unhealthy eating habits.
