The new me ( Kind of)

"Good habits are worth being fanatical about."
John Irving

I have noticed in the last year, I have change my habits without really knowing I did.
Here are a couple of thing I have changed!


I change from beer to Pelligrino. See, I am sort of a BEER SNOB! I love to try different kinds of beer and usually keep a variety in my refrigerator in the garage. Well, years ago I stopped drinking soft drinks but I LOVE the bubbly fizz, so I might have a beer (or 2) with my dinner. That in itself can add calories to your day so, I change to the fizzy Pelligrino and LOVE IT. I am not a water drinker but I am now! PS I still love beer!

2. I became a runner. That feels great to say. Never thought I would. I have 3 kids, a job, and help my hubby with his business. Who has time???? Well, I do know!! It is something that is extremely important to me. I am in the the best shape I have ever been, minus the upper body which I am working on and I feel great. I competed my first half marathon in January of this year at Disney which was an awesome experience. I had a goal of 2:20 and finished in 2:19. I got a lot of help from TMB Endurance Training, even though I had to stop to get through the holidays. Here are my scheduled races so far for this year!

5k River Run to benefit Halifax County Boys and Girls Club ( May 14th 2011)

This is just so far. I will also register for the Medoc Mountain 10 miler which is usually in October. It was voted best trail race in Endurance Magazine this year. Great race.

3. Lastly, I have joined a gym. For the past month, I have been going to the gym 2 - 3 times a week. I have noticed I feel a bit stronger and have a bit more energy. The gym is called:
It is a great gym, especially if you want to join some of the classes. On Monday ( if I am off) I attend PUMP YOUR BODY, Tuesday evenings I attend GUT and BUTTS, and then on another day I may attend POWER STEP or just do some cardio or upper body with some friends. I have really enjoyed it so far.
