Inspire Me Healthy Link-Up!

A Mommas Desires And Pacifiers
{Time to not be so damn unhealthy ladies!}
 
I hate running.
{I love eating}
With a passion.
{With a bigger passion}
It hurts my feet, my knees, my butt and my lungs.
{It's yummy in my tummy}
It is the devil.
{It is Jesus reincarnated}

{I wanted to end the post here, but I guess that's poor form}

That being said, I need to learn to love running now. Any tips?

You see, after quitting Crossfit {best/worst workout regime EVER} because it was draining my bank account faster than I drain a large McD's diet coke I need something to fill the workout gap.

I would swim - but, folks, that involves washing my hair more than twice a week and I am not down with that. {Plus, we have all seen the nappy hair those Olympiads have under those swim caps}

I would do a boot camp - but how do you choose!? There are like a million!

I would stop eating, but that is physically impossible for this girl.

So, I have decided to learn to love running - and thanks to some inspiration from Miss Sarah at Total Basset Case I have a wonderful iPhone app that helps me keep up.

{the best part is you can choose one of the three characters above and they all have separate personalities and voices}

So Couch-To-5K here I come! {anything past couch to mailbox is a win in my book!}

So far, so good - I am on the 3rd run/walk series and even though I wanted to rip my legs/feet off during each workout, I finished them!

And thanks to Miss Kristen and Miss Raven for coming up with this wonderful link-up to help us all live a little longer ;)

{Fair warning - I am spending the weekend at the beach and may or may not fall off the wagon - hey maybe I will run on the beach right?}

P.S. - I know I am late on all this, but follow me on Instagram @lpeters27

Haha I'm the same damn way lady. No running and all eating for me. Props to you for getting off the couch!

Ahh...I hate running so much. I started by going on the treadmill for one minute and then adding just one more minute each day. It totally worked. Then I found a couple hour long TV shows to watch while running and that kept me on there for 40+ minutes (no commercials)! Now I do intervals...it feels like less running but the calories burned are the same or even better.

Good luck!

Intervals are a great workout. Have you tried Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred? You may hate me for recommending it after you experience it, but it is so worth it in the end!

It's not so bad! The C25k program is perfect for taking it slow and you'll be running 3 miles before you know it! I ran track and cross country in HS and just started slowly adding some running back into my workouts this week. I miss being a runner!
