I used to teach 5th grade, but now I am a travel agent! I book mostly Disney related vacations, but I can book almost anything! I was lucky to get my job almost a year ago, and I love being able to work form home on my own schedule. This is great for workouts! I do have to force myself to get out of the house or I would stay at home 24/7!
Right now I am not training for anything so I am doing 3 short runs a week. I am also cross training 4 times a week (yes the days overlap!) I am specifically in the middle of Jillian Michael’s 6 weeks to 6 pack DVD! I also am lifting weights and I like to go on walks with my husband and two dogs.
Stick with it, and don’t overwhelm yourself. When I started getting healthy, I picked ONE small habit I could change/stat at a time. Once I got a handle on it, I would add another one. If you try to change everything all at once, it is likely you will end up giving up because it is so hard to do a complete change overnight. Small changes add up, so start there and celebrate each victory!
Just moving to a new town I don’t have much of a social life right now! I force myself to make work hours, because if I don’t I would work on and off all day. I need to separate my time so I am no on and off the computer all day long. I try to have everything done by time my husband gets home form work so we can spend quality time together. We run in the evenings a lot of times, so I will just do my strength workout or DVD during the day and save my run to do with him at night.
I LOVE fruit, especially berries, so smoothies are a big hit with me. I also am currently loving Chobani strawberry banana greek yogurt!
One of my dogs is named Sassy. When I was in high school, my basketball coach called me “Sassy” because I was a girly girl, but once I got on the basketball court I was totally different. I added sass and spunk to a sport, and that coupled with my dogs name created my nickname. So, when coming up with what to call my blog, I knew I wanted to balance the athleticism with the fun and girly, so RWS was born!
I used to have a Xanga back in the day (anyone remember those?) and I have always loved writing. When I started running, I decided to use a blog as a training log/way to keep myself accountable for my workouts, and it has evolved into an everyday thing I love to do!
Be yourself, and write a blog YOU would want to read. Don’t compare yourself to other bloggers, it’s a disapointing game that will make you feel not so good about yourself. I try to blog about things I would want to read about, and be HONEST!
