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…

When I lived in MS, my allergies were a pain. But after I moved to PA, I didn't suffer from allergies at all ... until now. (sigh). This year has been tough! After the 5K this weekend, I've been miserable.

I stayed inside for Tuesday's run and hit the treadmill. Thursday, I had planned to venture out with Lil Man in the jogging stroller, but I opted for a power walk on the treadmill.

Today's run was also indoors. I pushed through a 3 mile tempo run, but I feel awful. I took Allegra this morning (again), and it's just not helping. So I went and bought some Zyrtec. I took it also. I wish I could say that I felt a lot better, but honestly I don't. And, yes I know you aren't really supposed to take Allegra and Zyrtec together. I am aware they are both antihistamines. But I'm sneezing non stop and trying to find some relief.

I'm hoping since the Allegra didn't work, that the Zyrtec will help. I know it can take several days before it actually really 'works' the way that it is supposed to.

My LR this weekend is 10 miles. I do not plan to do that on the treadmill. So I really hope I'm better by Sunday!
