Let me start by saying running in the dead heat and humidity of summer is not my favorite thing....holy smokes was it hot! I went out running at 7am this morning and it was sooo sticky hot. I could barely draw in a breath. It's already well in the 80s this AM. THEN as I was running up the hill onto the street, I GOT STUNG BY A WASP! OUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I tried to take a picture of it for you, the area is all bruised and sore but it's really hard to see it on the picture (
But, bloggy buddies, you'll be proud of me because when I got stung I didn't even stop running. I made a little whimper but kept running on my way, holding my arm! People probably thought I was insane...but I didn't stop for anything! Today's run was tough because of the humidity and the heat but I managed to run 1.96 miles! NOT TOO BAD! I'm working on my time and as I said before, I run up big hills (on purpose) to build up my endurance and such. I was dripping with sweat after I finished man did it feel good!

I am determined...and I'm also getting my eating back on track. I don't know what's been wrong with me (the period monster has been really toying with me these last couple days) but I'm recomitted and I really need to focus not just on activity but also eating better and cleaner! No more junk!
Tomorrow I'm planning on going to see the movie Ted with a friend and I can't wait! It's looking up to be a great weekend. It's hot and sticky but I can beat the heat! For those of you who are running this weekend, make sure to drink plenty of fluids before and after the race, make sure you eat carbs after you run, AND don't run during the heat of the day!!!!
Have a good one bloggy buddies, I <3 you all!
