Today was an AWESOME workout. Although I didn’t quite match my 5k time of 35 minutes or the distance, I felt like I was on a roll. The legs and lungs felt good today! I could definitely have gone another mile or two. Maybe next time!

I decided to make my own video to a little bit different version of the song. Let me know what you think! Also as a precaution, the video is a bit shaky. Enjoy!
Link of the day: Lose it! http://loseit.com/
This is a free application that you can use on your iPhone to keep track of calories and have a weight loss plan. I actually haven’t tried it but it looks like it could be a really useful tool while trying to lose weight. If you have tried it or are planning to, leave your feedback below and let me know how it is!
Thought of the Day:
I’ve been really contemplating what it is that moves me to lose weight and why I can’t stop with my efforts. The conclusion that I have come to is one that I have seen at other websites and heard from other people, but never fully grasped until recently. This idea is that no matter how much weight I’ve lost or gained, time will continue to move forward. This puts it all into perspective for me. Why should I be disappointed about losing 4 pounds, even if it takes a year? I am still 4 pounds less than last year! I am finding more and more that patience and forgiveness for yourself when you make mistakes are really important. So now, I will try to forgive myself when I eat a little too much (ahem, like tonight when I’m going for all you can eat sushi) or when I don’t work out enough (like last Friday!). All that is really important is that I keep pushing and keep making an effort. I am starting to think that this perspective applies to a lot of things in life. Let me know what you think!
Hope you all have a great Valentine’s Day!
