SVU in real life?

 The SVU story is way on down bare with me

I went to the beach TWO weeks ago, and I had every intention of staying on track while I was down there, I even attempted running on the beach hungover and sickly feeling was not the best idea however I ended up staying up too late, drinking all the drinks, and eating all the foods. It's hard to stay on track when you're in paradise, I'm just sayin'

I had every intention on jumping back on that wagon the Monday we returned home. I didn't. Guess what I didn't workout one single time that entire week, and I definitely threw clean eating out the window. I also smoked A LOT... I'm doing better but haven't completely quit yet. Someone throw a brick at me :(

I learned something though, every thing we do comes with a lesson right? That entire week that I didn't do a damn thing; I felt sluggish, irritable, and incredibly sleepy. I caught myself nodding off at my desk and wanting to go to bed at 8pm. I also was craving any and all junk food I could get my hands on. I also gained 4lbs... got anymore of those bricks?

However I had my very first smore and I don't regret that
However this week I told myself I wasn't going to fall into that slump where I'll start Monday became next Monday and then the Monday after that. I couldn't let myself fall back into old habits and undo all the hard work I've done. Thanks to an amazing friend Jen @ JVKom Chronicles  who has helped me so much over the past couple of months told me that she was expecting a full check in on Tuesday. I just couldn't let her down y'all. So Monday morning I hit the pavement, and it wasn't easy. Taking almost 2 weeks off really kills your pace, well it does mine anyway. Just as expected Jen tweeted me wanting the report...isn't she freaking awesome?

Tuesday morning when I woke up and it was raining, perfect excuse to sleep in and not run... Jen wasn't having it LOL
I ended up telling her I would do 2 days worth of Couch to 5k instead on the next day. However the more I thought about it the guiltier I felt. The rain stopped, I was in the middle of cooking dinner and I ran and put my shoes on, told the guys to watch the food and ran. It felt AWESOME!

Okay now I have some scary stuff to tell you ladies and it's definitely opened my eyes (and ears). I run at 5am, alone, and it's still dark. I run around my neighborhood so Im never too far from home. I started my run, headphones in, and really getting into it. As I was running I saw someone in the corner of my eye. A group of girls was trying to get my attention so I stopped.  One of the crossfitters said "hey do you know those guys back there", I turned around. What guys? She said "there were two big guys following you while you were running and when we came around the corner they ran off."

Insert panic. This made me think some real life SVU shit may have went down.

Thank God for those crossfit girls or I could have been hurt, raped, killed, idk but its really scary. From now on I will run with one headphone out and the volume as low as I can get it. I will be weary of my surroundings even if Ive ran that path 9000 times before. I'm thinking about taking my .380 with me but Idk where to put it. It would kind of be difficult to run with a gun in my bra thats where my phone is.


Someone on facebook showed me this though and I am so tempted to buy it, in fact I contacted the company to ask to review it. Anyways ladies be careful out there and be aware of you surroundings!

One last thing and I swear I'll shut up. Have you seen my #trackthetank page up there. I am so excited about this fun journey 26 bloggers and myself are taking part of, and theres something in it for you..please head over there and check it out!

How do you stay on track?
Ever had a SVU scare?


  1. Great job getting that run out of the way! I have to call people and tell them that I am considering not working out and they guilt me into it. Glad you are doing alright. I do like that handy device. I hope you get to review it and I will totally check into it!

  2. oh my god, how terrifying! i run at about 6am and i am so scared of something like this happening. there was a story last year maybe where a woman ran the same route everyday and one day she didnt come home and it turned out these 2 guys had seen her everyday and they waited for her. seriously, gives me cold chills.

  3. I have had some scary moments running around my old college campus at night. There is nothing worse than "that" feeling of someone following you!!! You try not to be judgmental about people because they could just be doing the same thing you are doing, but they could be out to hurt too.

  4. So glad to hear you're ok! That must have been so scary. I also can't believe you'd never had a smore before. That's my favorite "dessert" of all time. I'm actually having a fire at my friends on Saturday, and she promised smore :)

  5. Oh my gosh that is scary!!!! Im so glad that turned out ok. I got chills seriously!

  6. Gotta love that accountability! I still believe that you can quit smoking!

  7. Oh my god that's so scary! Thank god nothing serious happened and those girls were there to give you that reality check. I run alone most of the time too, with headphones in and the volume low.. I run in my neighborhood that I know well and there are generally a handful of cops around too but you never know, especially since I run after sunset in the summer and it can be pretty dark by the time I'm finishing up. Scary! Please let me know if you do try out that product, I'd love to hear about it! Stay safe xo

  8. I've never had an SVU scare, but a friend did have a creepy white rape van as we've started calling them follow her when she lived at the beach and would run...not even by herself. I am too scared to run in the dark so I always go when it's still light out, but I'll definitely chekc out that pepper spray thing! Glad those girls were there for you!

  9. Yikes! That is scary! Glad you are safe!

  10. Scary about those guys. Eek.

    Mmm, I so love s'mores.

  11. I definitely just went on a beach vacation and did just what you did! I was all, "I'm going to be super healthy and eat only vegetables and run twice a day and swim across the ocean," and then I got there and it so. didn't. happen. (2 a day ice creams, anyone?) So I totally get what you're feeling about having to start over again! It's hard, but it's totally possible! Keep up the good work:)

  12. Thank goodness you saw those gals who warned you about the creepy dude! When I lived on campus at OSU there was a serial rapist who raped over 15 college students. Of course I had a class at 7:30 AM in winter, so I'd have to leave by 7am when it was still dark out. I was SO scared every morning until they caught the man.

  13. that's good you got back into your workout routine but so scary about those random guys!

  14. SCARY! Glad you're okay! Be vigilant about your personal safety when you're out.

  15. So glad nothing bad happened! I didn't have a scare, but one day I was running on the perimeter of an old field and in a small clearing there was a couch cushion with what looked like old blood on it and you best believe I hightailed it out of there so fast. Could've been dirt, but I wasn't stickin around to find out! I swear runners should be the most paranoid people out there!

  16. That is the exact reason I never bring headphones when I run outside. I'm way too paranoid. But I'm so glad you were okay and that nothing happened to you!
