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…

Early Morning Runs

Today I was supposed to get up at 5:00am to get my run in. I turned my alarm off ... sigh. I did manage to get on the treadmill at 6:00am and run 4 miles while Lil Man and Hubby ate breakfast. I then put Lil Man in the jogger for a short run. I had hoped to run 2 miles, but I was tired and hungry. We stopped at 1 mile.

But today's plan was for an easy 4-6 miles. I got in 5 miles which I'm happy with.

I hope to go to yoga tomorrow, but I need to get in a 40 minute tempo run. Yoga is at 8:30 which means we must leave the house by 8:00am. I also have lunch plans at 11:30 which means if I want to get in a morning run, I need to get up at 4:30am... hmmm. I could always try to get in an evening run, but those usually don't work out for me. By the end of the day, my energy level is nil. Plus with pop up thunderstorms, even the treadmill might not be an option.

It looks like early morning is my best option for tomorrow... too bad I'm so tired just thinking about it.
