If you see me running, call the police...

I've recently started running.

I'm following the Couch to 5K program on my phone.

It's amazing. I feel completely amazing.

In the past week, I've ran eight miles. That's probably more then I've ran my whole life.

I never thought I was a "runner". In high school, I took dance classes and loved basketball. But when it came to running, I hated it.

I married a runner twelve years ago. He'll go for a run, and be gone for close to an hour. I never got it.

Before, this is what I thought about running...

or this....

So, I quit smoking about 4 months ago (thank you) and I feel a ton better, but I've gotten fat in the process. I  think I gained at least 15 pounds since I've quit. What sucks the most, is that I bought a new pair of skinny jeans right before I quit smoking and I can't squeeze my fat ass into them. 

Something had to be done.

I read on Facebook an old friend that started on Couch to 5K and was loving it. I'm impulsive so I bought it, downloaded and decided to give it a try.

To my surprise, I made it through the first day and actually ran/walked over a mile and a half and was sweating like I've never sweat before. Hair plastered on my forehead...dripping down my back. It was gross.

But the whole rest of the day, I felt like a sexy BEAST!

I decided the next day that I wanted to feel that way again. And the next day, and the next day.

It's still working for me. I feel sexy as hell. 

It's only been a week, so my pants don't fit yet - but I feel good. 

Freaking awesome is more like it. 

My running goal Sexy Beast goal is to run 10 miles this week. 

What do you do that makes you feel HOT? What motivates you everyday? Please share! 


  1. Love the C25K program! However, I'm in dire need of giving it a go again. I fell off the fitness wagon when I quit smoking last June (go figure lol) and can't seem to get motivated to start again. Congrats on staying with it! Maybe you can send some of that motivation this way lol!

  2. Go for it - Day One isn't bad at all...and it's only 3 days a week!

    Good Luck! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Rock on! Congrats on quitting smoking - that's awesome!!! I love running and I love that it makes you feel sexy, I'm gonna have to remember that :)
