Achievement Unlocked


eighty two

I am usually very hesitant to discuss my exercise habits and routines. It can be discouraging to talk about a practice that isn’t helping me make health strides at the pace of “the Biggest Loser”.

Since New Year’s I have set out some routines and goals for myself. Despite the 5:15 wake up, I have been faithfully swimming two miles a week (one mile on two days) and running/walking on the treadmill 2 miles. M/W/F. I also do some Leslie Sansone videos and skate and hike with the girls during the week.

My first goal on the treadmill was to finish the two miles in 30 minutes flat. That isn’t anything a runner would write home about, but when I hit that goal today (with 1 minute 40sec left over!) I was beaming from ear to ear. There is something about measurable, achievable goals that make a person feel fantastic!

Runners: Do you have a favorite running album or favorite playlist of songs? I’d love suggestions. I’ve been listening to the soundtrack from Slumdog Millionaire and it is great, but it would be nice to change it up once and awhile!

    You go girl!!!!! I really like Daft Punk (my hubby’s favorite) for running music… especially “Harder Better Faster Stronger”. And of course, “Gonna Fly Now” trumps them all. 🙂

    Thanks Hazel and Abby! Those are both great suggestions and music that I like! I also discovered that Pandora has a list of workout stations- I’ve now tried out 80s Cardio and Bollywood Cardio! Perfect 🙂
