What Being Injured Is Giving Me

I have to say that one thing being injured can give you is a lot of time to think. Sometimes this is a good thing - sometimes not so much. This year has been a tough one for me when it comes to injuries. The 5 month and counting hip injury really put a damper on my fitness goals this year. Then I got staph as soon as I was cleared to run. That set me back. Then the hip got super angry again, and now this (When Life Throws You A Curveball)

It's July ya'll, and I have only had a few weeks here and there this year of running consistently. It's been my worst year to date to deal with such issues. And mentally I was finally ready to run races. I had registered for both the Harrisburg and Hershey half this year. Well, we all know that's not going to happen. I'm still hobbling around in a boot. Thankfully, I was able to transfer those bibs through the registration system.

But, lately I couldn't help but wonder where does this leav…

Day 3 Of Overcoming Sugar Addiction

Day 3 - the day I've never been able to get past because I've always caved. Today, at times, I came close to throwing in the towel. I don't think so much because the cravings were massively intense, but the stress level was very intense today. And because of that I wanted comfort - I wanted chocolate.

What I wanted was to get in the car and drive to Sweet Frog. It did cross my mind, but I didn't. I didn't eat the cookies, or the snickers either. And that Little Debbie oatmeal pie is still in the cabinet.

What I did do was take some deep breaths and reminded myself of the why. Why am I giving up sugar anyway? What's my own personal reason?

And this afternoon around 3pm when the cravings were more cravings and not just the stress, I had some apples with cheese and just a few pretzels. I still wanted something sweet so I ate some popcorn and a few grapes.

By dinner time, I was wanting carbs. So I had a baked potato with pepper jack cheese.

And I drank water throughout the day along with some peppermint tea.

And I finished the night off some some blackberries.



Tomorrow, Lil Man and I plan to venture out for some last day before back-to-school fun. I know we'll be eating out for lunch, and the temptations will be everywhere.

It's been YEARS of trying to get past 3 days without having junk food sweets... But day 3 is complete... on to Day 4.

I am forever thankful for your support. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
