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…

Really Starting To Love These Trails

Wow, this week has flown by for me. I think I'm playing catch-up from the holiday weekend. And honestly, I haven't caught up! My house is a wreck at the moment, but I've kept out with my workouts this week ;)

Monday - A quick 2 miler and I have to say that I was pleased that the first mile was 8:34 and the second was 8:28. I also did Boot Camp class that evening.

Tuesday - a very hilly 6 mile run. The pace was slower than I wanted (10:38), but I was tired mentally and physically so I'm please that I got through this run.

Wednesday - 10 minutes on the stationary bike and I said forget this. So I went to Body Blast class at the gym. Lunges, squats, planks, upper body work, and a little shy of an hour later, I was drenched in sweat.

Thursday - I was feeling the class from yesterday. My left calf is really sore. But I got through a 4 mile run with Lil Man in the jogger.

Friday - Trail run Friday.. woo hoo. I'm getting more and more into this trail running. In fact, I'm considering signing up for a trail run in August. I haven't made my mind up just yet. But today's run was another great hilly run. And I loved every minute of it!

    1. That's one reason why I won't run them alone. I'm totally afraid I'll get lost!
