I Used To Be Fat

There are only two shows on MTV that I actually enjoy watching. 1 - Jersey Shore. 2 - I Used To Be Fat.

Does anyone else watch I Used to Be Fat? I really enjoy it. It's very inspirational. It amazes me how these people can change their body so much in such a short period of time. It is pretty motivating, if you ask me.

I have, hands down, the best boyfriend ever.
As some of you know, I just moved from Colorado all the way out to Illinois. I moved out here on Jan 7th, 2011. I am currently living with my dad, step mom, and little brother. I love it out here in Illinois. Since moving, I haven't found a job, yet. And my car is still out in Colorado. I won't be able to get it till the end of the summer. So it is kind of hard to get around and no job means I don't have the extra money right now to get a gym membership. So my boyfriend, being the best ever, bought me a treadmill for Valentine's Day!! I am so happy and thankful to have a treadmill just right downstairs.

I've been doing pretty well with keeping up on running. Started using my DailyMile account again. Do any of you use DailyMile? Are any of you into fitness/working out? If so, feel free to add me on DM. It is great to see others working out and to motivate each other :) My DailyMile

The boyfriend and I are training for a 5k in April. I'm really excited about this! This will be my first actual race. His too. Have any of you done 5k's or 10k's or even marathons?

Today is a rest day for me. I ran Monday and Tuesday and my legs are really sore. Another great thing about DM is they have challenges pretty much all the time. The one I'm wanting to do, for March, is running 108 miles in March. Which is about 4 miles a day - 6 days a week (minus 4 rest days). Hopefully I can do it! :)


  1. You're so lucky!!! What an awesome boyfriend!
    I keep begging my parents for a treadmill because there's no way I'm going to buy one myself hahaha so I'm stuck with my exercise videos..but I would really love to run and walk while watching TV..sigh

    I want to be in a 5K too!! It's been on my to do list forever..and I have a feeling it'll be on there for a while haha

    108 miles is a lot hehe but I know you can do it!!! It's going to be so easy for you! :D

  2. Thank you! I feel so lucky. It's such a pretty treadmill lol!!! What work out videos do you use?

    You should do a 5k too! It is going to be hard. I'm so used to running on a treadmill. Running outside is soooo different. Yikes!

    108 is going to be tough!
