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.

that is so cool … now I need a treadmill… awesome. I wonder if I could film a 30 min walk by the Thames where I work.. . so beautidul. you could feed the ducks on the way … I wonder . ..
Confession: I don’t have a treadmill. I just ran on my yoga mat. And I was thinking the same thing–why not walk around here and film? Start a whole new YouTube channel, LOL!
smiles … its an awesome idea … just think of the 30nminute walks … the amazing places you could visit …
What an awesome idea! And yeah, the video could have stopped off at least one of those bars!
My feeling exactly. 😉
You go girl! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
