Hey all! Welcome to week 7 of the 100 mile summer challenge! Who’s still with us? How’s it going for everyone? I (Markell) ran 3 miles in 33 minutes last week! I was so proud of myself 🙂 It feels good to beat personal records. Remember that if you’re participating in the challenge, use the hashtag #100milesummer so we can all keep track of how...

Are you guys joining in the running challenge with us? It’s a simple running challenge to get you all off your booties and on to the streets, racking up those miles. If you started when I did, you should be at just around 34 miles, not including today’s run.  I have to admit I’ve had a rough time these last few weeks! If it wasn’t for this challenge, I probably wouldn’t have kept running. I’m very grateful for the support system those completing this challenge have given me! If you are trying to...

  If you’re participating in the 100 mile summer challenge, we’ve made it to week 5! You should have run 25.5 miles so far and have 8.5 miles to run this week! If you haven’t started yet, you should! It’s a great way to get into shape and start up a running routine.  I know a LOT of my friends I have asked if they like running and I get the usual. “I am not a runner”. Or “I just HATE running”. I really can empathize with that. I remember when I first got interested in running for...

Three weeks down of the 12 week exercise challenge! How are you all doing? Getting those running muscles built up yet? You should have run 18.5  miles now and you’ll run another 7 this week. You can do it! Because you’re awesome. If I’m not mistaken, sometime this week is when you’ll realize how freeing running can be. I never thought...

For those of you who don’t know, I’m hosting a summer running challenge. The goal is to run 100 miles during the summer. I made up a schedule that will allow you to do this without any crazy runs and only running three times/week. There are quite a few bloggers that are joining me on this, and I’d love to hear about anyone else who decides to take the challenge! Leave me a comment if you’re doing it and I’m going to link up all the bloggers at some point during the challenge.  How are you all feeling...

Hey lovely readers! Who else is excited for summer? So, usually, people try to get in shape before summer, or at least thats the idea, right? Well, if you’re anything like me, you missed that boat and are now really wishing you’d started working out a few months ago, right? Well, there is no time like the present! I am joining up with Jen at The Cutest...

I’m not going to lie. I’m writing this post because I really need motivation to workout. I am down to TEN pounds left and have been trying so hard to lose them for about three months. I recently took some “time off” of working out and I was amazed at how fast I lost my stamina and flexibility. And how quickly I gained back some of the weight I had worked so hard to lose. I thought a good post about why I KNOW I should be working out might help me and it might help some of my readers who are looking for that...

My first post about losing weight was a hit. Read it here. So, I decided to write down five more obvious things I do to lose weight. Because like I said in the first article, losing weight is not magic, it’s science. Drink Water Drinking water increases your metabolism so you are able to burn calories faster. Aim for at least eight glasses a day. I know, the first few days you are running to the bathroom every ten minutes, and that’s hard. Don’t worry, it gets easier.  Go Running Running is probably one of the...

Are you ready to have your mind blown? I learned how to make a smoothie that is super smooth, but dairy free. No yogurt or milk of any kind. The secret? Add an avocado. If someone else already knew this, you are now dead to me for the next.. 30 seconds.Okay, now that that’s done with, I will share with you the recipe for this fantastic smoothie. Not only is it smooth and yummy, it’s good for you, too! You need spinach, an avocado, a lime, and a mango/pineapple/strawberry frozen fruit mix. So first, I put in about 2 handfuls...
