Your Body Is A Gift

Image
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…

Friday Trail Running (Fitness Friday 5/32/13)

Today's trail run was great. We tried a new trail and came across some cool water features and rock stepping stones. Next time, I'll try to take some pictures. We tackled some pretty steep inclines too. It was a very nice start to the morning. 

What a great week of running this has been! Wow, I've had some mileage this week (for me). Since I pushed my LR from the weekend to Monday, it sort of threw off my runs this week. But I feel like I accomplished a lot this week. 

Monday - 14 miles
Tuesday - 2 mile walk and Elliptical (cross train day). 
Wednesday - Double Digit Run with Jogger 10 Miles
Thursday - 5 Mile Group Run 
Friday - 5 Mile Trail run. 

I'm not sure about my LR this weekend. I am supposed to do 13, but the legs are starting to feel the mileage. So I plan to take tomorrow as a rest day, and wait and see how things are on Sunday. 

One thing that I didn't get in this week was strength training! So I hope to correct that next week and make sure that I get my strength training in. 

Happy Fitness Friday everyone!

    1. It was fun to be able to run it with him. I'm not sure how many of my LR will be with the jogger ;). But it's nice to know it can be an option!

    1. Yes, I do believe I may actually like trails - which is a big surprise since I've tried to stay away from them - ha.
