I don’t know what this page is for but for now I’m going to use it to mark my current best times so I can beat them silly and feel accomplished for doing so.

A couple helpful little goodies I love using…
MyFitnessPal is an awesome way to get you started on your own little quest for nutritional self awareness. You can set your goals to your liking, adjusting your ratios of carbs/fats/proteins to meet your own personal goals, as well as calculate the nutrition facts of recipes, track calories, and keep a journal of workouts. It’s cray fun. Just don’t get obsessed. Unless you want to. Then by all means, obsess away.
This…makes me hurt. It’s ridiculously easy to follow with very clear pictures and videos, plus…it hurts. Like a lot? The “Focused” exercises make me feel less silly than the full ones. (The full ones have a lot of…sidestepping around the gym? I don’t know guys. I don’t know about that.) And it’s free!!!! Also the blonde fitness model in it has abs that scare/intimidate/inspire me. But mostly scare me. I did my last workout in a sports bra to see if my abs do what hers do when I do the things she does. They don’t. But they want to. Really badly.
Man, who knew running was so fun? Especially outdoors? Apparently everyone knew this. Except me. But hey, it’s never too late to jump on the running bandwagon, jump off it, attach the bandwagon to a rope and pull it behind you while you run a la strongest man competition event. Map My Run recently updated its iphone app to do live stat tracking so instant gratification on this one is through the roof.
