Your Body Is A Gift

It was like I had a major light bulb moment. I mean for the last 6 years, weight loss has always been a goal along with getting more physically fit and stronger. And I've heard people say that you only have one body, and you need to take care of it blah blah blah...

But it's like I felt this on a personal level - like WAKE UP GIRL! You have ONE BODY. It's YOUR responsibility to take care of the GIFT that you have been given. I experienced this while I was in bed with pain in both of my feet. My right foot was throbbing from the arthritis, and my left foot was in as much pain from my plantar fasciitis. In that moment it didn't take a genius to figure out that my body is really dealing with a lot of inflammation. And that I had been eating more for fun than for healing and nutrition.

It was definitely another nudge for me to really work on focusing to eat with a purpose. Oh, another highly processed cookie, another scoop of ice cream, another handful of marshmallows re…

Treadmill Running

It's been a long time since my last post! I've been busy and preoccupied lately. In January, I was able to get in a few frigid runs. After my last below 20 degree run, I decided I would stick with the treadmill until the temps warmed up some. Before the latest snow storms, I was able to sneak in an afternoon run down by the River. It was an enjoyable run.


I hate the treadmill. As soon as I get on, I want to get off. But I was able to get in two short runs this week. I ran 3 miles on Monday and 3 miles on Friday. I've also been trying to add in some strength training.

I plan on registering for my first race this year. It's the Run 4 Luck. It's a 4 mile race in Lititz in March. I ran it last year. I hope to do a little better this year. Although my time last year was respectable for me (about a 10 minute mile). I still hope to beat it.

I'm considering going for an outside run tomorrow, but it will depend on how much melting and refreezing we have. I don't want to deal with any black ice. I'd rather play it safe when it comes to that. I hear more snow may be on the way. I supposed I need to become friends with the treadmill if I want to get some runs in.
