Update on my Running- Juli And walking-Khan

I believe I have been 2 weeks in my summer goal of being more active. so far things have been great, I still feel pretty lazy but I can tell my body is feeling a lot better now that I am not eating crappy fast foods all the time and exercising regularly. Though lately I have been craving Chipotle more and more, is that a side effect of becoming more healthy, wanting to eat at Chipotle, is this a disease? The food is yummy, so it does not matter, but my cravings for bad food in general are starting to go away, and my cravings for whole foods like fruit and veggies is a lot higher. I recently found this YouTube channel called Tasty, AND I AM IN LOVE. Many of their recipes I want to try out, especially since they put a healthy twist to all my favorite foods, and yummy twists on other foods I love. Mozzarella onion sticks are one of the recipes I am eager to try out, I know my BF will love to be my taste tester as all men love food.20170605_143827

Recently I have been trying really hard to get my 3 mile run down to 30 minutes, so far I am at 42 minutes, my first time running the 3 miles was completed in 50 minutes. 50 minutes was not bad, especially for my firs time in a while running it. Now before people go “You should not just start at 3 miles, you will get hurt” I did not start right at 3 miles, my first week I worked myself up to 1 mile, second week 2 miles, then at the end of the week I did 3 miles, even now I only run 3 miles once a week to see my progress. Everyday I do run 1-2 miles, and walk Khan for 1 mile on top of that.

In the mornings whenever we wake up Khan and I like to go on our 1 mile walk, taking our time and just enjoying the scenery on campus and around. Most of the time by the end of our walk we are both pretty woken up and loose for the upcoming day ahead of us. After our walk I feed khan his food, and I make breakfast. Lately I have just been eating cheerios. I would make other meals, but I am to lazy to really make pancakes AND clean up after myself. But I think I want to try and make more smoothies and oatmeal, I want to expand what I eat and make it as colorful as I can. Eating better breakfast will make running in the afternoons easier if I am well fed and energized. And maybe with more clean eating I can get better at running as well as build up muscles for gymnastics. More on gymnastics tomorrow.

Lately I have been trying to set goals for myself this summer to try and become better mentally and physically. Khan has his own goals he set too! Here are our goals for this summer.

Juli’s GOALS

  1. Lose 10 lbs ( Healthy way) – I want to get down to a Healthy weight the safe and healthy way so my goal is to lose 10 lbs this summer
  2. Eat cleaner and healthier – I want to eat less fast food and more whole foods
  3. Exercise more – I want to get back to exercising everyday, for at least 60 mins like i used to in high school, my college has the greatest free gym so it should be easy
  4. Blog everyday– I want to blog to get out my chattiness and just express myself more
  5. Do more Sketches – I really want to get back into drawing and painting
  6. Learn ballet basics – I want to learn ahead for my class
  7. Plan cute 1 day vacations for my bf and I– we only get 1 day off per week!

I only do a short list of goals so I do not overwhelm myself and it just makes it easier on me

Khan’s Goals

  1. Gain 10 pounds– ruff ruff i’m underweight
  2. Meet other dogs– ruff I need to socialize
  3. Get new toys– ruffers I nee more action!
  4. Sleep more– I’m so tired ruff ruff

Khans list is more short since he is already so perfect!

Over all I really love to create lists for myself to do, goal lists, to do lists, etc, because I take so much pride in checking off that I did something on the list. I love to be active, even though I do really love to sleep, being active is just so rewarding for my mental health as well as my physical.  Khan and I really try to go out and do stuff, I know soon I will try to go get a library card for my self so I can start to read again. Khan and I are going out to dog parks more and to parks so we ca socialize and just meet new people. I hope to find a dog water park so I can see how Khan acts with water, If there is no dog water parks then I will buy a kitty pool, fill it up, and let khan go wild.

Hello!-Juli and Khan

This is the post excerpt.

Hi my name is Juli, and this is my service dog named Khan.  For my whole life I have lived with mental disorders that make it harder for me to function in life. When I got Khan things started to get better, I was happier, and he made it easier for me to go on living. So I thought why not show what we do everyday and on every little adventure we go on, and went on. It seems fun to me and Khan loves taking pictures and videos, so why not start a blog! I also have a white cat named Yoda that will appear quite a bit since he is a camera hog!! I do not mind questions and I actually love them as I am quite a Chatter box, just be respectful to Khan and I!

I already know people are going to ask what breed Khan is, he is a Great Pyrenees. When I got him he was almost three years old. Now he is almost 5 if I remember correctly. Right now we are attending college in Texas, It is very hot so I keep him hydrated and cool, just as I keep myself hydrated and cool. I love the color purple and I do like to dress up Khan and Yoda, especially for holidays so I am excited for upcoming holidays. This first Blog post was to just say hello and for me to just start out, trust me I hope it will get better. My goal for this blog is to just have fun and be creative. I want to share how Khan helps me as well as how much I love him.

 

Love Juli & Khan,

BYEEEEE!!!
