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

#FitFridayConfessions - Eat The Rainbow



I admit, I tend to get stuck in a rut with eating the same foods over and over. As I was driving Lil Man to school this week, I heard an announcement on the radio about eating 7 different colors of food every day. That's when I realized, I really need to expand my family's food. I've been focusing on trying to cut out processed food - that's going so so. Holidays are really hard aren't they? I can't seem to get this Easter Candy out of this house (other than eating it which isn't exactly helping me reach my goal - nor do I want Lil Man eating it all). So I think it might just 'disappear' soon, and I hope that it's just forgotten.

But I'm shifting focus a little and trying
to make sure that we are eating a variety of different foods and colors. Lil Man ate cauliflower and carrots this week (just a bite but he ate it). We've had green beans, corn, sweet potatoes, grapes, and apples to name a few. I feel better knowing that my family is expanding our choices.


Check out what Lil Man and I found at our local grocery store this week? 


Portion control bags!!!! This is perfect for my family. Hubby and I argue over portion sizes (especially when it comes to nuts and craisins for his lunch). Now I can measure out a serving size. No more guessing if it's a half cup of fruit or whatever. So these bags are awesome for lunch and for snacks (especially since we are on the go so much). 

I still have a long way to go on this journey to eating healthier, but it's one that I know I need to take.

  1. I need to stand down from the Easter candy already too. Today was much better, but still not down to zero candy. Ugh.
