Tina’s Quote of the Week:

“Hill training is hard, really hard but I’d rather cry over a hard workout than an ex-boyfriend…and that’s the truth!”

October 28, 2010 – CROSS TRAINING

Oh my, I procrastinated and procrastinated…it was bad…but I made myself pay for the laziness that came before. I did more exercises than I had to and I would throw in an extra rep if I was really complaining. I made myself accountable. That will bring me success.

I received a text this morning from a family member and she said she was committing to jogging a portion of the marathon next October with me. I was so excited for her! I am so happy, proud, and inspired that I can motivate someone to exercise. I now know from experience, that it can change your life for the better and that makes me shine with joy.

October 29, 2010 – HILL TRAINING

I wrote on my facebook status:

“Tina Moore feels like a two year old regarding hill training today: I don’t wanna, you can’t make me…NO! Waaaaa!!”

It’s true, that’s how I felt and it didn’t get much better…well it did a little but it was bloody hard. I bargained with myself that I didn’t have to do the 4th set of 2 block hills if I jogged all the way up to my driveway…a steep hill just before it…by the time I got to the top, I was crying. It’s hard. Really hard. But you know what? I’d rather cry over a hard workout than an ex boyfriend…and that’s the truth.

It’s Halloween; I’m going to surprise my trainer, Jody from Leapfit and dress up as a bunny for our jog.

November 2, 2010 – CROSS TRAINING

I started thinking about some of my family and I got really sad. I didn’t cross train as well as I’d like but I’m going to give myself a break. This family stuff is not easy, it’s deeply sad and I need to be kind to myself today.

November 3, 2010 – 8K JOG

It was a beautiful morning and I feel blessed when it doesn’t rain…

I was thinking about my life before I exercised, and how unhappy I was. Jogging is so beneficial to me. Although I complain, I truly feel so grateful because jogging opened up the person I always knew was inside. Jogging brings me more LAUGHTER, more ENERGY and more STRENGTH than I ever imagined. I am very grateful
