Wood Watches For Men

Beautiful and stunning… those are the words that popped into my head when I opened the box. Truly breathtaking, and honestly I usually don’t get this excited over something unless it’s some running or fitness gadget. But Jord took my breath away with their wooden watches. .

If you’ve never heard of Jord before, they are known for their 100% natural, hand-finished authentic wood watches. Jord watches come in various styles and colors. From battery to hand wound, there is truly something for everyone. And if you are looking for an awesome way to present and store your watch, Jord does that too. Can you imagine giving this to someone as a gift?



The presentation alone in my opinion is a gift. But the beautiful watch inside will definitely bring smiles.

It's More Than A Goal

I joined Coach Jenny's Holiday Challenge last week. I didn't quite meet my goal that I had set, but I was ok with that since I ran a race on Sunday (My First Relay).

This week I'm also struggling to meet my fitness goals. I was at Lil Man's school a couple of days, and lack of motivation due to a sore throat kept me from getting to the pool which left me a couple of miles short. I also missed yoga... that being said, I'm about 5.5 miles (running and cross-training combined) short of my goal this week. But it doesn't end until Sunday night - so technically I still might be able to meet it my goal if everyone (aka Lil Man) cooperates.

But this week, my car was in the shop - and I was REALLY wanting ice cream. What's a girl to do? Well, I ran / walked 4 miles for this beauty.



And in case you wondering, yes it was worth it! I will say that the 2 miles there was easy peasy.
The 2 miles back were a little more difficult. I was tired and the hills were definitely getting to me.

I was also able to get in a short run after being at Lil Man's school this week.



And, I got in one strength training workout (disappointed that it's only been one workout so far this week. But I still tend to ditch the strength training when I'm in a time crunch. I'm working on it though!)

And I made it to my regular spin class on Friday. I love that class. It's always a challenge, and I'm always soaked in sweat when it's over.



But I said all of that to simply say this... remember the journey. Sometimes I get so focused on the end result - where I want to be - instead of cherishing where I am. I believe that it's the lessons along the way that are the most important.

Keep moving forward, love who you are where you are, and just be you.
