I'm considering it. Jogging. Stephanie going jogging. Stephanie jogs. Stephanie the jogger.

A couple of my friends just started jogging and they're trying to get convince me to go for it too. I'm not really hard to convince about this. I mean, I want to; I LOVE to run. The problem is, I'm out of shape, so going up the stairs is a bit of an ordeal.

{I'm exaggerating.}


Jogging has lots of benefits, I believe. Like it's heart-healthy. And can help you maintain a healthy body weight. And releases endorphins, a chemical that makes you feel good. Am I sounding like a commercial yet? I'm trying to.

{I feel like I'm being really obnoxious right now. I'm in a mood. I apologize. Wow.}

*sigh* Enough with commerciality. Let's go the list route, shall we?

Reasons Why Stephanie Should Take Up Jogging:
1. It's spring. Spring is about new beginnings, AKA trying something new, AKA jogging.
2. I actually enjoy running/jogging.
3. I really, really, really need the exercise.
4. It would make me feel good.
5. I would like to be able to tell people that I jog. It
6. It would give me an excuse to get out of my house and away from certain people in my family that I do not find pleasant company.
7. It's something constructive to do that's not school.
8. It's supposed to help lower your stress levels. {Actually I just BS'd that, but it sounds plausible, right?}

At this time your author ran out of good reasons and was forced to resort to Google.

9. "Jogging twenty miles a week can add seven years to your life." - BTOdell at I like that. I'd like to live to 100 AND SEVEN. {I'm already planning to live a century just so you know.}
10. "To have an excuse to get myself a pair of new running shoes once in a while." - Shoes are good. What girl doesn't like to get shoes at LEAST "once in a while"?

Awesome. Thanks, assorted bloggers of the internet.

There you have it. I should start jogging. There are really no good reasons why I shouldn't {actually, I saw a link about that, but I refused to click on it}. The only question is WHEN? Today is Monday. It's the beginning of the week. It is a Monday in the spring when I have high stress levels and would do well to maintain a healthy body weight with swimsuit season coming.


{That's rhetorical.}

I am telling you this for a reason. Hopefully blabbing this to the internet community will help give me some accountability.

Will it work? We shall see. If everything goes as planned, I'm going jogging tonight.




  1. Go for it Steph. Count me out. hehe
    All my friends can jog for all I care. I still rather bike.

  2. This post reminded me of a truly inspirational quote... "I'm trying this new fad called uh, jogging. I believe it's jogging or yogging. It might be a soft j. I'm not sure but apparently you just run for an extended period of time. It's supposed to be wild." -Ron Burgundy

    Personally, I won't run unless someone is chasing me. Good luck with the yogging! :)
