In college, I decided to actually start working out. Mike bought me a Wii Fit, and later the Biggest Loser. I enjoyed using those to work out, but I still felt like I wasn't doing enough. I used both of those programs to get in shape for our wedding. In the fall of 2010, I kept seeing some friends posting on Facebook about a running program, the Running Mate 5k. They were doing it, and for some crazy reason, I decided to join in. I don't know what prompted me, but I gave it a shot, and I ended up loving it!

Sometimes though, it's hard to find the motivation I need to keep going. Some mornings, the bed is so warm and comfortable and an extra 1.5 hours of sleep sounds so much better than sweating my butt off. But I get up and do it anyway (though every once in a while I do choose sleep!).

|I love Chobani Greek yogurt!|
|This is my first experience with Designer Whey. I had a protein bar for snack today, and it was delicious!|
I think my whole point in this (rather long and wordy) post is that I've found things to keep me healthy and motivated. Even when BBC ends, I'll have a variety of workouts to fall back on that will keep me from being bored. I've seen changes in my endurance and athletic ability, as well as my body. And that is why I do what I do!
