As you can see, even though it was 98 degrees outside, I was still able to test drive my brand new Fuel Belt yesterday! Va-va-va-voom!
Now, now ladies...don't get too upset when you discover that your husband has secretly tucked away a copy of this picture in the back of his wallet. He may even caress it each day. Because really- what man can resist the allure of a woman with bulging man-calves, thick, milky white thighs, silver and purple disco shoes and a 6-bottle water carrier strapped around her waist?
That's right. No one can. Not even yo' baby daddy.
I think this photo pretty much illustrates my need to lose another ten pounds, hence my renewed committment to hitting the road once or twice a week (until I start the formal training program in August).
Even though the run caused me great pain (the heat sucked all the energy out of me), the silver lining to yesterday's run was that I not only loved the Fuel Belt (there is absolutely NO bounce to it), but I was actually...looking forward to it!
I think it was a combination of the excitement of wanting to try out my new gear, guilt for not having run in over a week, and just wanting to escape the gym/track. Of course once I started running I immediately wanted to turn around and go home and eat li hing mui gummy bears (like I am now), but I still think it's a step in the right direction.
