happy, happy, happy

"Ugh. I don't wanna go workout. I wanna just sit here, pin stuff on Pinterest and eat chocolate. The weather is just plain dismal. And the last thing I want to do right now is go get my heart rate up. Okay. Okay. I know I need to go. I know I will feel better after I workout. Blah. Dude! Get your head in the game. You got this. Put in your headphones, and just go."

I wrote the above pep talk approximately one hour ago. And now as I am sitting here, feeling the endorphins kick in, I am extremely thankful that I talked myself into going. As you can tell, I really didn't want to workout. But I knew I needed to, and so I went. And let me tell you....it was fan.tas.tic. Like, really. 

I ran 2 miles. 2 miles!! Some of you may be sitting there going "okay? and?" but to me, that is a big accomplishment. I have never run that far before, and I did it in 22 minutes and 11 seconds! So, I am kinda like, really proud of myself right now. The run itself was really hard, and the first 2-3 minutes after I got back I thought I was gonna die, but for the most part it was awesome! :) Next goal: 3 miles.  

I also did this workout that I came up with last night. 


I will admit that I only went through the workout once cause I was running out of time, but it was still a really good workout. Agh! I just can't get over the fact that I ran 2 miles! I knew I could do it if I pushed myself, but I didn't know if I would push myself that far. Folks, this girl is happy, happy, happy. And now she is gonna go eat her post-workout snack.
