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

Fitteroy Resistance Bands Giveaway and Review

Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

As you know, I'm limited as to what I am allowed to do by Physical Therapy. And most of my exercises are hip/core exercises, and stretching. Just this last week, my PT added upper body work (that also works the core) by sitting on a swiss ball and using resistance bands. 

Can we say perfect timing? I was given the opportunity to try the Fitteroy Flat Resistance Stretch Bands. They come in three different resistance strengths (Light, Medium, Heavy) and one of the best things for me is that it comes with a door anchor. AWESOME!! 

I have always been a fan of resistance bands because they are so versatile. But when I first tried bands years ago, I was skeptical because honestly they don't look like much do they? I mean, it just looks like a thin piece of stretchy material. I thought What's that gonna do? Well after a few minutes, as my arms were shaking, I realized they can do a lot. :) 

But this is my first experience to ever have a door anchor to be able to use with resistance bands. And it certainly did not disappoint. 

This is actually one of the exercises that PT has me doing - sitting on a swiss ball, core in tight, back straight (and yeah my back is straight my shirt is just floofy) while pulling down on the bands. 

I am extremely pleased with the  Fitteroy Flat Resistance Stretch Bands. I feel they make a great addition to my workout routine. And even when Physical Therapy approves me for more exercises, resistance bands will be a part of my daily routine. Physical therapy started me with using bands from day 1 - so that right there should tell you something. 

And, one of you can get your own set of Fitteroy Flat Resistance Stretch Bands also! Just enter the giveaway tool below.

  5. I could really use one of these resistance bands. I have problems with my shoulder and the band would help me in stretching my shoulder and building strength in it.
