Five Things Friday: 5Qs about weight loss

Hello all! Happy Friday! Sorry about not having a blog up yesterday, I thought I scheduled a post but I guess I was wrong. That means I’m absent minded and it just left you absent. Have no fear, Angie is here with a new post for Friday. I enjoy doing the Five Things Friday thing but I thought I would change it up with a video this week. I am answering five questions about weight loss. The topic will change from week to week but if you have a question about anything, please feel free to ask me. It will make a video, I promise. This is the main reason why I went to a video format so I could easily answer the questions people have to ask.

Topics covered in the video:

  • My heaviest weight.
  • Time to lose the weight.
  • Cheat meals.
  • Weight loss struggles.
  • Advice for those trying to lose weight.

Do you have a question for me to ask in future videos? Leave a comment below or e-mail me.

There’s probably some psychological thing I’ve also programmed in my mind about not being active too that comes into to play but that’s buried in the back ends of my mind. All I… View Post

Q&A: How do I get started in running?

The biggest question of the new year has been about getting into to running.  I’m in no way an expert but I’ll give you some friendly advice on the subject to help you get started. 1. The most important thing I recommend is getting fit for the right pair of shoes.  Go down to a local running store (not a Footlocker, Champs or Shoe Department) to talk to someone who is KNOWLEDGEABLE about running shoes.  Running shoes aren’t cheap so you want to make sure you have the pair that will work for you.  I made this mistake when I… View Post

How did I get into running?

How did I get into running?

It’s question and answer time and this week I decided to answer a running question since I’m becoming a crazy runner with all these back to back races.  I’ll be heading out of town for Rock n Roll Denver and I will be running with Got Chocolate Milk Team Refuel.  But the question is: how did you get into running? I started running because walking just wasn’t cutting it for me anymore. I’ve said it many times before but when we first started going to the gym we walked on the treadmill for 30 mins everyday.  Every week we bumped… View Post
