I have a confession to make. The entire month of August? I totally slacked off on my exercise routine. I did jog most weekends, but I fell off my morning routines and trust me, I noticed a major difference in the waistline. I started losing all of my tone that I had worked so hard for. I think it was a combination of the heat and my slight anxiety about work.
After I came back from my girl’s weekend, I returned rejuvenated and have been kicking butt ever since. “We fall down, but we get up!”
The last two weeks, I have been back to running about three days during the week and early Saturday mornings. On Sunday mornings, I look forward to my 2 mile walks with Melonie.
So this past Sunday, Mel and I went walking. I was wearing black yoga capris, a tank top and a baseball cap cause it was misty outside and my curls would not have cooperated (Chaka Khan…Chaka Khan). You know, straight bummy.
We did our walk and on the way back, stopped at our local Starbucks for breakfast. Over coffee and multigrain bagels, I glanced down and lo and behold….your girl Melonie was wearing a shiny pair of coach sneakers.
Blogland? Who wears Coach sneakers to workout? Can you guess which one of us is the size two? LMAO! My azz was in straight power workout mode and Mel is in “I’m just a Diva” status. Did I mention those joints were PINK?
Either way. I am on vacation this week and just got back from running with Tali 1. It feels so good to whip this body back into shape. My whole mindset wasn’t right and now my head feels clear.
I truly believe that my frame of mind is tied to my workout schedule. Now that the Fall is approaching and the cooler weather is back, I am so looking forward to the feel of that crisp air against my face and the wind at my back.
