Will I Fail in Fall!

Fall is my time of year. I live in a warm part of California and I get so excited at the first sign of fall. I’m so tired of being hot!!! All I want to do in summer is stay in air condition. I find it easier to exercise when it’s cooler. I do better with exercise and eating this time of year. Not as many parties. Not as many excuses to avoid exercise. I’ve been on a weight loss plateau but I think I can break it now. I planned on starting running once it got cool but I hurt my foot. I will give it a few weeks. I can do my martial arts but it hurts to run. I am challenging myself to lose 10lbs and be able to run a 3k by the new year. Can I do it? I don’t want to fail in fall!!!

Running Shoe Update

Yeah, I got my shoes. I’m trying the minimalist barefoot thing. I can’t do the 5 finger toes. They just didn’t feet my feet right. I bought Merrell Pace Gloves. I couldn’t wait to try them out so I tried the treadmill at the hotel gym. So far so good. My feet felt good and I didn’t get numbness in my shins. I didn’t do a full test. I did 1 minute intervals for about 20 minutes in the hotel gym. I couldn’t do any longer .The ventilation sucked and it was way too hot in there. I’m just not a gym girl. Too many people. I prefer to exercise at home or outside. I will have to try the track at my daughters school. It may be the Sangria I had last night or  hanging out at Eve’s at CityCenter Vegas. Either way I’m not able to hang like I used to;)
