Week 4 of Thrive!

Week 4 of Thrive!
July 27, 2015

I'm down 4 lbs total in 1 month. Its been exactly 1 month since I started doing Thrive!

So excited to share my 1 month experience on Thrive! So far I've noticed that my knees no longer hurt during or after my runs! WHAT! Yes! I'm so excited! I also haven't had any shin splints! Good Bye KT Tape! It's been great knowing you, but I don't need you anymore!

I coach competitive cheerleading and tumbling. I pick up kids who are as big as myself. My shoulders usually bother me, but not any more! I've have no shoulder pain over the past few weeks. No more heating pad for me! 

I've lost 4 lbs so far in a month! I'm stoked about that! I'm really excited because we've been on vacation for 2 1/2 weeks, then I had 2 coaches conferences to attend and I have ate like crap and haven't ran since before we left for Arkansas. So loosing 4 pounds in a month is exciting to me! I can't wait to see what the next month holds for me since I am now home, eating healthy again, and running!

I've noticed that I've got more patience with the kids. They drive me crazy! We don't have kids around us that are my kids ages, so they mainly just have each other! 7 years old and 15 years old, it's hard for them to get along for a long period of time! But I'm more patient and thats always a bonus!

I see the inches coming off! I keep having people ask me if I lost weight and how good I'm looking! That gets me excited! My goal weight is 160. For my height, I'm suppose to be between 170 and  150. So my goal is in between! I can do this! I know I'll never be the skinny kid I was in high school, but I can be the healthier me at a healthier weight!

So many results! I can't wait to see what the next month will bring me! This is exciting!!!

I finally got the hubby on the Thrive bandwagon! He needs it! He wants to loose weight and get healthy and this is it! I'm so excited that he has started this journey too! It always helps when you have your partner doing this with you!

One thing I love about Thrive is that if you get 2 friends to join you, you can get it free! I'm getting it FREE Folks! Yes! FREE! Ask me about it!!!

Thrive Day 7

Thriving Day 7
July 3, 2015

Up at 7am, did my Thrive this morning. I had planned on running this morning but those hills yesterday put a hurting on my knees. I run flat ground and out here is just nothing but hills. So my body isnt use to running up and down hills on gravel and I cant really train for it. 

Besides all that, I felt amazing all day. My body is feeling great too! Sure, my knees hurt a bit climbing stairs, but its no big deal. 

One of the biggest changes I have noticed this far is that when I'm ready for bed, I read about 1 page of my book and I'm out cold. That never happens. I usually read anywhere from 7 pages to a whole chapter before I pass out. So I'm loving that I can lay down and actually fall asleep quickly. I was in bed about 10:30 last night. 

Another thing I have noticed is that I wake up naturally about 7am and I'm awake. I'm not drowsy and making myself get up and dragging along. I wake up and ready to go for the day! I love that feeling. I'm productive and feel great!

I use to feel tired and run down all the time and since I have been on Thrive, I am feeling amazing! Who wants to feel great everyday? I do!

Are you ready to starting Thriving???

Thrive Day 5

Thrive Day 5
July 1, 2015

I think I passed out around mid-night last night in the front seat. Its a 20 hour drive to Arkansas. The truck wasn't a bad ride at all. 

I woke up about 5am. Normally I would take my Thrive as soon as I woke up but didnt have any water up front. It was all in the cooler in the truck bed. 

I snoozed on and off for a bit and talked to Brandon while he drove. 

I finally got to take my vitamins and shake and put on my patch about 8am. I love the taste of the shake! My favorite part of the system!

I usually don't sleep or nap in the truck, but the grumble of the truck puts me out. I cant sleep because I cant get comfortable. Then my back, neck and shoulder hurt. No pain today!

Made it to Brandon's dads house and been hanging out and chatting! I have felt great all day!

I'm going to Thank Thrive for having a pain free ride from NC to Arkansas. I can't usually handle long rides without hurting a bit. No pain! So excited!!!

We went to Florida earlier this year for the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend (read my posts here about it). I wish I had Thrive back then. Between the truck ride there and back and then 3 days of Universal Studios, and 3 days of races, my body took a week to recover. 

If you are a runner, I highly recommend Thrive! I'm not here for a sales pitch at all! I dont even care about making a commission check! My blog is to share my story and my journey! I hope you'll join me in this adventure!! You wont regret your decision to join!

Dont forget! If you get 2 friends to join, you get it FREE! Yes, FREE!
