The Work-out: The #bikinibattle Challenge


As you might know, I run. And one of my new years resolutions is that I take running more seriously. I am.
Dude, I have been running. I have joined the challenge set by the lovely ladies of Girlslove2run: The #bikinibattle.

Well I'm half-way through April and I have to say, it's not going as well as I though it would go. Usually I'm really dedicated when I have rules to live by, but now not so much. Yeah I do run, I run twice a week. I do at the very least one work-out a week, but I compensate the other work-out by walking on my lunchbreak every day (yeah, at least 30 min. of walking every day). So that's all good. But it's the candy. The candy. 
I didn't realize how much crap I eat a day! Yeah, my breakfast and lunch are super healthy, but then when the clock marks 4PM... and a colleague ask you if you want some winegums... Or last week when I bought chocolate because I just needed chocolate. And in the evening: watching Game of Thrones with my man, drinking a cup of tea, and eating a big iced cookie (for the Dutchies: Roze koeken!!). Yes, I defiantly need more focus in the food department. 

We already established that the frequency of my work-outs and runs are okay. But there is another challenge! I didn't just join this challenge to wear a bikini this summer. Since I haven't booked a holiday, I'm not too concerned about my bikini-body at the moment. So there is another reason: my personal challenge. Just after the end of this month, on the 5th of May to be exact, I'm competing in the 13k of "rondje Tilburg" (for the non-Dutch: The Round of Tilburg, which is my home town). When I entered this competition I could hardly run 3k. In two weeks time I have to run 13k. Last Sunday I finally hit the 13k mark. I did take a little break after 5k, cause I really needed to use the bathroom and drink a glass of water. But after 15min break I was back on track. I added another 0.5k to compensate though.... not sure if that had any effect, but I like to punish myself in that way (yeah, I'm weird!). 
So the plan for this week is to run the full 13k in one go; not sure WHEN I'm going to do that. With my B-day weekend starting on Friday, and lasting all the way up to Sunday evening, I don't know how I'm going to plan that. Since I'm working the whole week, and making arrangements for two party's. Oh well, guessing there are bigger problems in the world. ;) 
So follow me on instagram (@amysfashionscrapbook) to see how my challenge is going. I can tell you one thing: I'm sure I'll be having candy (& beer!) during the week this week. 'Cause what's a party without cake? It's just a frikin' meeting! 

Ps: I forgot all about the water drinking part! Well save that for next time :)

  4. You are the inspiration, Amy! I always admire people who *run* cause I suck big time at it. I tried running a thousand times and failed. I do better with skating, but it cannot be done after rain - bad for the wheels, dangerous for the ass (if you slip and fall).
    So, thumbs up for your challenge (it sounds pretty difficult but still fun!) and I think you already done great till now:)

    Speaking of your birthday - when is it exactly? So I can say "Happy Birthday" on time:)


  5. Good on ya girl, not sure I could ban junk food for a whole 5 days though! I've just gotten back into my running as well, but I'm nowhere near your league yet - 6km is enough for me! :-)
