The heat has turned up here in Texas with temps in the 80's the past few days. 
Today's workout was a 40 minute run followed by a 20 minute core workout!  I was drenched by the end of it...ewww!  
I am dreading summer attire and it's obviously coming here to Texas sooner than I thought!  
I don't know why but I am not feeling confident with my weight loss.  
I feel like I have the tools for success, my goodness it's what I studied in college, HOWEVER the science behind it all isn't working for me right now and that makes me sad.  
I put my diet in check, been taking Advocare, loving the way it's making me feel and giving me that energy I'd been searching for 
BUT I need a change in my workouts?  
Or I need to focus more time on long runs?  
See, I'm not even sure what I need and that's the worst part.  I usually have the answers, but find myself at a loss with this one.  
I know I'm not in desperate need to lose weight and I consider myself active and fit BUT there is MUCH room for improvement, that's for sure!  I'll keep you all posted on my journey and hopefully my body will catch up to my diet and exercise regimen soon :-)

I so hear you. In a year and a hald of going from never working out, to working out 6 days a week, 7-8 hours a week: NO weight loss. I have dropped a pants size, so things have definitely firmed up, but I just can't lose the weight. It's frustrating, and the more I try to calorie count or manage my diet, the worse it seems to get.

I wish it was 80 degrees here!

Looking forward to doing your 5k run this week! And nice prize lineup too, Marissa.

I want to do your race, but, I'm a bit tired/or simple and I don't think I can find your email address (I have searched around a bit).
Could you email me a race bib?
