The Chubby Jones Podcast (general)
Workout podcasts for beginning runners to get off your butt and start moving.

It has been a loooong time since I've tried to record a very long show - but I'm back and I'm actually training for a 10k. This is a 60 minute run that includes music from Kelis, Sia, Jack Splash, Hot Chip, La Roux, David Guetta, Kings of Leon, Little Boots, Neon Indian, Oceana, Quadron, Saint Motel, Scissor Sisters and STARS. Hope you enjoy!

I am illin right now - coming down with a bad cold and I can barely breathe out of my nostrils. I am such a pretty girl right now. Work has me tied up, which is why I haven't posted anything on here much less a podcast. Have no fear, I will return with one this week even if I sound like I'm speaking under water.

Yours in chub,

Yesterday was the first time in probably a year or two that I actually stayed within my Weight Watchers points. I'm pretty proud of myself, especially since I worked out. Also, I was watching The Biggest Loser which is a huge inspiration but also tends to get me hungry for some reason. Is that weird? I suppose it's like when I watch Intervention and just want to drink whiskey and smoke cigarettes through the whole thing (in fact that's what I used to do). Something about other people working hard to combat their addictions, food or otherwise, makes me want to reach for them more. Last night was a success though and I decided to make a real effort to take time for myself. An hour of the gym per day isn't going to make my time on the couch with my girlfriend and our animals any less fantastic. In fact, I really think it will make things better because I'll feel better about myself. Now I just need to remember this when it's time to hit the gym.

I'll be recording part 2 of this week's podcasts today since week 5 has three parts. As I said earlier this week, the music will be the same, but the running intervals will be different. I'm sore as hell but I got myself into this mess, now it's time to get myself out.

Maybe it's the PMS talking or the fact that I know I'll be going to the gym later today but I can't stop thinking about food. I just ate what should be a filling lunch but my mouth is watering for more. So far today, I've eaten the following: Breakfast: whole wheat toast with hummus, tomato and cucumber Snack: Salad with gardeniera, cucumber, tomato, onion and 2 Tbsp fat free poppyseed dressing Lunch: Homemade vegetable soup, Costco falafel in a whole wheat pita with hummus, tomato, cucumber and hot sauce. Yummy in my tummy but momma wants more food. My options are: Eat more Drink some water/tea to kill some time and see if I'm still hungry Slap myself in the face multiple times until I get over it Actually do some work Only one of those options sounds appealing and it's the one that I'm not supposed to do. So instead I'll get some tea and do some work and by that time I'll probably have to run to my next meeting.

Here's a little interview (a very loud one...notice I have some audio difficulties in everything I do?) I did with the band Barcelona who is featured in the 5th week podcast:

New Year, New Use for Blog It's my dog Marshall Jolie-Pitt's 1st birthday today and I couldn't be more excited. It's been a really long time since I've posted anything on here and I guess it never occurred to me to use this as something more than just a place to put my podcast. But let's be honest, that's lame! So, since it's the beginning of a new year, I am going to treat this as more of an actual place for me to put my dumb ramblings especially when I'm hungry and want to find something else to do with my hands other than go to the vending machine eventhough there's never anything I actually want in there. Sound good? Good.
