Lorna Jane Fit Challenge (#LJFitChallenge) - Let The Fun Begin

I am super super super super excited to be a part of the Lorna Jane Fit Challenge (#LJFitChallenge). This is exactly what I need right now - with my mileage being so low with my hamstring injury. I'm not able to jump back into my running or strength routine full force; so the #LJFitChallenge is exactly what I need right now. 

I know that
I may have to modify some of the exercises. I'm listening to my body. Days 1 and 2 consisted of squats, burpees, push-ups and lunges (among other things). I handled the squats and lunges fairly well, but the hamstring was definitely angry afterward. So I'll have to listen to my body, and I'll have to be patient with myself. But I think I've finally reached a place that if I have to cut a workout short due to pain/tenderness I know that it's best to cut the workout short instead of pushing through. This concept is still very hard for me, but I'm learning..... 

Another aspect of the Lorn Jane Fit Challene (#LJFitChallenge) is nutrition. We all know I could use a little help in this department. One aspect that is stressed is portion control. Even if you are eating 'healthy clean' foods, you still have to pay attention to portion control. 

Here is a quote from the Nourish Cookbook that I really loved "So let's be honest here - it's you who decides what you eat" (Lorna Jane). How true is that? 

And for moral support and inspiration there is also a Facebook group

I'd love to have you join me - you can sign up for the Lorna Jane Fit Challenge here

Self Care Is Not Selfish It's Necessary

It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. And I'll say it just one more time in case you didn't hear me. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. I have found through experience that when I'm not taking care of myself, not only do I suffer but my family suffers. So ditch the mom guilt and take the time that you need! I have a tendency to keep pushing my needs aside until I reach a breaking point. We've had a very busy fun summer so far. However, I've struggled to get some quality ' me ' time to decompress. I'll spare you the meltdown that ensued. But the reality check that followed prompted me to take action.

Running My Life

Wow, has it really been 2 years since my last post? I suppose that I allowed life to get in the way. For any faithful blog readers, I apologize. Although, I'm not sure how many people actually read blogs anymore. I think most people use other social media platforms.  (By the way, drop by and say hi on Insta. )  But for some reason, each year when I pay for my google domain, I can't seem to let it go. As silly as it sounds, this little space is mine. And lately I've been struggling with ownership and acceptance. And my domain renewal was a not so gentle reminder that I have a voice .  Seriously, you'd think by 48 that I'd have this figured out - nope - apparently not. However, I am wise enough to know that we have a choice to allow situations to harms us or make us stronger. I'm choosing to let this mid-life quandary make me stronger. And because of this, I'm setting goals, taking charge, and reexamining priorities.  Movin' on... 

When The Planner In You Must Be Flexible

In case you haven’t figured this out by now, I’m a planner. I know - shocker right?!? :) So although I love substitute teaching, it’s making the planner in me anxious. And it’s been reeking havoc on my workouts. Basically the morning of or maybe the night before, I find out if I’m working. So my day ( that I thought I had planned ) can be turned upside down in an instant. But, truthfully, isn’t that really the same with everyone?
