Monday Mumblings...running with Pippa.

I mumble on Mondays. It's a thing. You get used to it. Most of the time it's random and today is random, but it's specific to the fact that I got back on the fit train for real today. Basically these are my thoughts while I ran.

  • Oh...this isn't THAT bad. I can do this! And chick prompting me sounds like Pippa Middleton at least that's what I'm gonna imagine her to sound like b/c it keeps my eyes on the prize. 
  • Today I'm glad I live in Michigan b/c I couldn't run outside if I was in Oklahoma. It's sweltering down there. 
  • Time to run again?? I just started my brisk walk again. 
  • Suck it up! You want to wear those cute little Nike shorts that everyone wears without having to walk funny, and without your fat on your inner thighs looking like they're about to bust outta the shorts. (Don't act like you don't know what I'm talking about! You've seen those girls.)
  • It is a hot mother out here! 
  • I am now one of those people who are all nature-y and who runs outside. 
  • Dear Jesus, Please let no one from school see me run like this!
  • One-Der Land! One-Der Land!
  • Not normally a techno person, but this music isn't half bad! 
  • Praise Jesus for the shade!!
  • Just keep swimming swimming swimming! 
  • This could be a good blog post. (Don't act like you've never thought this!)
  • One more run you say? Hello Pep in my Step!
Five minutes later after my cool down walk, I made it home.

A few things about my running business...mostly answers to your burning questions.

I'm using the Couch to 5K podcasts. The girl on there really is British and I've named her Pippa. I am one of those runners who hates running until I start running. After I feel great. I love the runner's high and am currently enjoying it as I write this.

I know I mentioned that I started walking last week, and I did. But I'm also a very big solo workout person. When I run, I am very committed and I like to do things my way, whether I run slow or fast. I don't want to feel pressured to run faster or slower depending on who is with me. So on a rare occasion I'll run with someone else. 

I am not going to tell you my exact weight, but I will tell you that I'm over 200 pounds and I'm 5'4'' so by definition I am a fat girl.

I will make lots of fat girl jokes and if that makes you uncomfortable, it shouldn't. I am not okay with my weight, but I am okay with who I am as a person. So I've just gotta tweak this weight thing and I'll be fantabulous. In the process, I'll make some jokes on twitter and here. It won't be anything ridiculous I promise. But please don't think my self-esteem is low.

No make-up, right after a run, with the attitude face, but it looks like I'm constipated..
At some point, I will post pictures of my body. If you watch Biggest Loser, I'm in the range that Hannah was when she started, but the size of Irene height wise if you're really dying for an idea of where I'm at currently. But for now, I'll give you this picture.

Let's see what else, oh yeah, this is way random but when I run I can't stand to have long nails, finger or toe. I don't know what it is about my fingers, but my toes make me feet hurt. I guess it's the same for my hands too b/c my palms hurt.

I'm really excited about this. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. And now if you'll excuse me, this fat girl's gotta go stretch the muscles she hasn't used in awhile.

Happy Monday!

You are hilarious! I literally snorted while reading this.

I (lovingly) refer to my inner thigh fat as "Chub Rub". Since it's gotten more humid outside, my shorts stick to my legs and my thighs stick together and holy Hades does my chub rub buuuurn.

I love this post! I started out doing C5K in the spring then fell off the wagon when my grad class started because I had zero energy. I also have a difficult time starting then when once I get going I'm good to go! Good luck with your program! I'm planning to start back up tonight actually because it's the first day of summer break!:)

Oh, girly, I love you! And I'm proud of you! And that picture? Could be me every day I get back from work.

Doesn't matter what your size is, it's hot as balls out there, and when you're workin' it, it's not pretty on anyone! In fact, your pic is probably better than most women I've seen. You should see what most of us look like down here post-workout. NOT PRETTY.

Good for you for being real!

You kill me. My face is red like that, but more like a killer tomato after any type of exercise. Add the heat & humidity in & I'm just a HOT MESS.

Kelsey Claire said...

You are hilarious. I think we all think those things, or at least I do! You can do it!

Kara said...

Way to go! I need to get some motivation to exercise. Be glad you are where it is tolerable to be outside. Too hot here already!

Shaina said...

You go girl! You should google "kiss my black ass podcasts." Yes, that's really the name of the webiste - it's something like, written by this girl named Suze, and she has killer (free) podcasts for every week of c25k. Some are really ghetto, some are Michael Jackson themed, some are Britney, all I can say is ... she is some kind of awesome. :) She's no Pippa, but I love the music!

OK the face? I die. It looks like you're trying to take a dump! And the leg rubbing-yeah, I've burned trhough two pairs of seven jeans when I was the "fat girl" by rubbing holes in them! Damn!! Yeah, and I'm doing it to my maternity capris now too. Time to retire them. I'm really proud of you getting your exercise on!

Hi y'all! The name's Samantha. You can call me Sam if you like. I am a lover to a boy I met at Falls Creek in the summer of 2005, that is a student of Jesus, a Sooner born and Sooner bred and when I die I'll be Sooner dead, Democrat by party, blonde to the core, and oldies but goodies kind of girl.
