ew, ew, ew… i mean.. i know i’m not ugly but i hate my body! I wish i had some old christmas pictures from years ago. I remember searching for clothes and I couldn’t fit in any of them!! that’s the hardest part for… putting on clothes and not being able to button them, or zip something up. It’s horrible!

I break into tears like… every single time.

For tomorrow, I asked my sister’s boyfriend to make me run with him tomorrow. LOL, I was planning the gym but at least if i have him also running, at least I’ll make sure THAT happens. He’s a very good, long distance runner… and he has been “training” my sister. She’s getting better! I have to do the same. He told me that he’ll drag me out (perfect!) lol

well, we’ll see.. hopefully though I’m not coughing like today or else I’m gonna have trouble running around the block.

When I felt myself getting sick, I used to make myself work out extra, extra hard because I believed sweating out the sickness would help me get better. I think it worked too! Back when I was fit &&  eating a lot of vitamin C… I hardly was sick!

Diet and Exercise does wonders. I gotta keep reminding myself that!

Anyway, from the site: http://weightloss.allwomenstalk.com/reasons-water-helps-kick-start-weight-loss/

This site is awesome, has a lot of ideas not just in dieting but in fashion, activities, makeup, etc! I admit, it’s for women but whatever!

7 Ways Jogging Helps Lose Weight!

1. IT GETS YOU MOVING!

It’s simple. Anything, anything that gets you off the couch and moving is going to help you burn calories and lose weight. This includes dancing, skipping rope, jumping on the trampoline, and jogging. Jogging for 45 minutes burns about 500 calories… that’s amazing!

2. IT’S A GREAT SOURCE OF CARDIO

Like I mentioned above, one of the ways jogging helps lose weight is by burning calories… but it also gets your heart thumping — it’s great cardio! And doing regular cardio exercise, like jogging, will strengthen your heart, so you’ll burn calories more efficiently. Bonus!

3. IT’S MARVELOUS WEIGHT-BEARING EXERCISE

Every compete fitness plan includes weight-bearing exercise, along with non weight-bearing exercise, cardio, stretching, and weight training. Jogging meets two of these requirements, because along with cardio, it also provides weight-bearing exercise… and this complete fitness regimen, including jogging, will help you lose weight.

4. IT IMPROVES ENDURANCE

Another of the ways jogging helps lose weight is by increasing your stamina and endurance. You’ll notice that, after a few weeks, you’ll be able to go further, and faster, and that at the end of a jog, you’re not as winded or tired. That’s you, building endurance! Way to go!

5. IT’S GOOD FOR YOUR CORE

My personal trainer once told me that the secret to toned abs is a strong core, and he’s right. And how do you get a strong core? Well, one way is by jogging! It’s true… so not only can jogging help you lose weight, it can also help you tone, too.

6. IT’S EASY!

I’m all for easy, and this is another way jogging helps lose weight: it’s simple. There’s no special equipment required (aside from shoes). There’s no complicated training involved (we already know how to jog). You just lace up your trainers and go!

7. YOU DON’T NEED A GYM MEMBERSHIP

Who says weight loss has to cost money? In this way jogging helps lose weight and keep your pocketbook in good shape, too! Jogging doesn’t cost anything (again, aside from the cost of shoes), so you won’t have to sacrifice something else to do it, or budget for it. Sweet!

I love jogging, and how you know why! These are all the ways jogging helps lose weight that I know of… and I especially love the last two! Which of these are the most important to you? Or do you know another way jogging helps lose weight I didn’t have on my list? Do tell!

Again– this is from the site.. and everything said is so true! I’m definitely going to get into it

Well Everyone… Good Night!!!
