First time running in over a week πŸ™ˆ I’m still not at the point where running is truly a habit or something that I feel like I *need* to do. My body feels pretty content lounging in bed eating chocolate and watching Sex and the City. That being said, I am #TrulyCommitted to leading a fit and healthy lifestyle for da rest of my life. It’s okay if a few days pass with no work out BUT there better be a REALLY good reason. That def wasn’t the case this past week. Not giving up on #100daysofrunning, today was #day61 It keeps me #motivated soooo #leggo #keepgoing #my100daysofrunning #dontstopdontgiveup

#tbt!! Because #fatpics. When I first saw this picture my first thought was “I just look like because I’m sitting” then “my leggings are just hitting me in an inconvenient place” then “that sweater’s just not flattering” #nahh… Be honest with yourself! If you don’t like something about yourself, go out there and do something about it. #youarenotatree #getit
