I hate working out, y’all. Not a fan of sweat. But I’ve been doing it.
Back in the fall, I registered to attend the Tampa Indie Author Book Convention which is happening July 16. I’ll tell you more about that later. Right now, my point is that I realized that by July, I wanted to look more like a svelte, sexy romance writer, and less like Jabba the Hutt.
To that end, in January I started being careful about carbs, eating lots of salad and veggies, and walking away from bread and pasta. And I’ve lost over 20 lbs so far.
Most days, Coach Kozak from HasFit on YouTube kicks my ass, but today I wanted to do something different. A little investigation led me to a bunch of virtual treadmill videos. They make it seem like you’re running someplace magical rather than in your living room. And yes, I could just run outside in the neighborhood. But it’s summer, y’all, and it’s HOT.
So today I took a run along the beach in Queensland, Australia. It was beautiful, and I nearly forgot I was running. The half hour passed quickly. I would give the video 4 out of 5 stars.
Why did I dock it a star? We passed a bar TWICE and the fucker refused to stop.
