Last year I put on a bit of weight. I call it my newlywed weight.
I waited till now to write this post as if I had of last night, I probably wouldn't be able to say this.
I got up at 830 today and went for a jog/walk. I thought I'd jinx myself if I wrote it before I did it.
This last year has been an awesome roller coaster of settling into my new life, as a wife, independent living, working and uni. So granted I did put on quite a bit of weight, through no fault but my own, and now I really hate it.
Before the wedding I was super skinny and running lots to keep the weight off so I could fit into my wedding dress.
My problem last year was consistency, I ran just not often enough. This year I'm going to try and do better and thinking about what will help, I've decided to do an award based attitude.
So from now on, each walk I go for I put a $1 in the jar, and a run gets $2. The more I run, the more I earn and that money will go solely on something to treat myself. Maybe some cool running shorts of shoes, maybe a massage or manicure. Haven't decided yet as I've only got $1 in there so far haha.
I'm also going to document my runs on instagram as well, you can find me at katieellenlieschke.
