Running, Concerts, SPRINGTIMES.

Why, hello there! Long time no… Er… Read…? Type? Blog.

I feel awkward now.

Anyway. Nothing too exciting here, just a rundown of some things that have been going on in my life. The first and biggest is that I re-started Couch to 5k after having some major issues running outside versus a treadmill. I had my fourth run today. The first three were really difficult. I was having some major IT band pain, shin splints (which I haven’t had since about week 3 of C25k the first time), side stitches, etc.

I’m not sure about where you live but where I live there are almost no roads/trails/paths that don’t have some kind of incline. It is very hilly here, and my body was just not prepared for that. At all. I about died the first time I tried to full-on run and that’s what made me decide to re-start C25k.

Today was the first time I didn’t have any pain when running. Yay! I was concerned and tried to rest appropriately while not totally losing my motivation. After today’s run I can safely say I’m back in love with running – even more now that I’ve taken it outdoors. It’s so much more challenging and interesting to run outside and I don’t know that I’ll ever be able to get back on a treadmill unless I absolutely have to.

I hit my second major weight loss milestone: this weekend I weighed in and I have officially lost 20 pounds. WHEE SIRENS BELLS WHISTLES CLOWNS – wait nevermind. Fuck clowns. THERAPY LLAMAS INSTEAD. 20 pounds is HUGE but it’s only the beginning. I have least 20 more to lose – ideally, I’d like to lose another 30.

Last week, Josh and I had a genuine, bonafide adult date night. ….. Not in that sense, you sicko. Jesus. Seriously? Take your smutty mind elsewhere. This is a FAMILY BLOG. I mean we got to go out to eat (we chose local friend-favorite Taco Mamacita. I loved it, Josh did not.) AND to a concert. After dinner, we headed to Track 29 to check out Marc Broussard.

If you are unfamiliar with Marc’s music, here is perhaps his most popular song, and he did play it the night we saw him.

It was a great show. The opening act was good, Marc was awesome, I drank a little too much but we had a hell of a time. While we were leaving I kept insisting that we come back in June to see the Dropkick Murphys, but Josh kept insisting that I couldn’t handle the mosh pit that would probably end up happening. I totally could. Mosh pits forever.

So that’s what has been going on lately! It’s been a good few weeks especially since the weather has finally warmed up here!

What’s new with you?




  1. “It’s so much more challenging and interesting to run outside and I don’t know that I’ll ever be able to get back on a treadmill unless I absolutely have to.”

    ABSOLUTELY. Remember how I referred to the treadmill as the “hamster wheel” a while back? YEP. :)

  2. I’m behind you on the weight loss thing, but I have finally *really* committed. My goal is 5 pounds a month, and I started in February. I hit my goal in Feb, but not in March (I lost, just not 5lbs). SOOO I started doing something I thought I’d never, EVER do…count calories. I hate those people. With a passion. But, I joined MyFitnessPal, and it makes it pretty easy, (barcode scanner & huge database) and gives you a target based on your weight loss goals. I’m learning a lot, and I hit my first mini-mark this week. 10 total lbs lost. It makes me sad that this is my weight after 10 pounds, but it’s only going to go down from here!

    • I’ve been using MyFitnessPal since December 😀 it’s been key in my weight loss. I have the tendency to eat now, think later, and it’s forced me to re-consider what I put in my mouth. I also love the “if every day were like today, you’d weigh xxx in 5 weeks”. VERY motivating.

      Congrats on the 10 pounds! It’s a big accomplishment! Just take it one week at a time and before you know it, you’ll be at your goal!
