Embracing The Changes In Life

Someone recently asked me about my running and how I currently feel about it. True, I'm not running 5 days per week as I have in the past. I'm not even running my usual 3. I think my new norm for awhile (maybe forever) might be 2 days a week.

How do I feel about it? I feel liberated. I feel like stepping outside of the model of runner to something bigger. Because I've said it before, and I will say it again, I am more than just a runner.
As I grow older with my family, I realize that life is constantly changing. I am constantly changing. And learning to embrace the change definitely makes for an easier transition. For probably the first time in my life, I am

Sugar Detox Crashed And Burned Day 4

Well, I'm disappointed to report that my Sugar Detox Journey ended on Day 4. Sigh... so what now?

Well I can't say that I'm going to exactly 'begin again'. I don't believe the no tolerance of  fruits will work for me.  So my plan is to just try to eat healthy real foods, try to ditch as many processed food as possible, factor in a couple of 'cheat' days (if you want to call it that) and see what happens.

Currently the butt/ham/hip is still sore. I think I might try a walk/run tomorrow and see how it feels. I've been resting it for a week. But I'm still having tenderness so I still might not be ready to run. But I'm starting a new workout plan. I'll tell you about The Next Chapter soon. Have you ever heard of Jamie Eason's LiveFit?

  1. I wouldn't be able to go completely off sugar either. In the last year, I've made some cut backs, little by little and make different choices but you still have to enjoy the small things in life, once in a while.

    1. Yeah, everything that I have read has said go cold turkey and I have tried several times to fail... so... yeah.. I need to try a different route

  2. I went completely off sugar once (no fruit or carrots) and I was physically ill on Day 3. Sugar addiction is no joke! I'm sorry you're struggling with this too.

    1. Yep.. same with me.. physically ill also.. this time around it's much better with fruits etc

  3. Oh man, trying to go off sugar is something that I am struggling with on a daily basis as well. However I'm trying to get fruits and some type of peanut butter or nutella in there so I can have my sweets and fruits in one setting.


    1. Yes, definitely keeping fruits and PB this go around!
