Series:  "M90F: Matt's 90-day Fitness"

Day: 15

Activities: UPPER BODY - Push-ups, Ab-wheel, Walking, Shoulders.

I saw an interesting article on MSN today on having a partner help to motivate you in your workout:  But notice it also said simply having an audience helps for the same reason.  So I'll say it again: post your goals somewhere where your family/friends will see them (hint: post them here!) so that you're 'forced' to live up to your word.  My recommendation: set a time goal, (ex: 1 hour per day, or 30 minutes per day, etc).  That way as long as you put in the time, you'll stay with it even if you have a day where you're dragging.

Note: in my running days, I actually preferred to NOT run with other people because it forced you to conform your pace to others' pace(s), and that doesn't help you to run optimally, with your own gait/stride, and can hold you back, or it can wear you out so that you're not in good form.  But I DID like the fact that we always went out and met back as a team pre and post run, even if we didn't run with each other on the run itself.

I noticed that I never posted my 'before' still pictures from day 1, so I figured I'd throw those on here today, and I also didn't post my 'before' pic of my forearm measurement so here's that as well:

Notice the roll at the base of my neck in the picture above!  I couldn't believe it when I saw this picture!  I think that's gone now... whew!

I realized today I'm still obsessed with the thought of eating unhealthy foods.  Not only do I want them, I want to go NUTS and gorge myself on everything unhealthy.  I really do think unhealthy food is addictive, and I'm wondering how long before I'll be done 'detoxing' from it, and stop having these insane cravings...

Still excited to start running hopefully soon!  Thanks to my friend Andrew for sharing his type of new shoes:  (link is to his fitness blog that you should definitely check out!).  I'm going to check them out along with the 'barefoot' shoes, and try to decide between them.  I know some places let you actually return them even after being worn (ex: Scheeles in Eau Claire, WI), but many don't.  I'll see if I can find a place out here (currently still in Vegas, but soon in Madison, WI!) that will let me try them out and return if I don't like them.

Don't let Monday stop your awesomeness; get out there and work!
