I will spare you my excuses. I am back. I am more determined than ever to get my health and energy back to what it was just 6 short months ago.
My head is in a good place and I am ready to take charge again.
This is Day 1 of a 90 day run I am going on with all areas of my life. I am focused on the Core 4 that I am learning about in my coaching group.
It is Hard to run when you are out of shape. But I know if I practice everyday I will get better.
I am a very visual person. I made a collage of all pictures that make me happy and want more when I look at them. I literally stare and these and visualize that girl when I am running on my treadmill and lifting my weights.
This is a countdown ticker on my phone. I made myself a promise. Just give it 8 weeks! Thats 56 days from now. That is not long! If I do this work everyday for 8 weeks I will see a difference!
Looking forward to finding my sparkle again <3
I had some very special guests on my run today! It was a family affair for Mother’s Day! I was so happy to have the company. Gunner was there to but he was a little camera shy 😉
Caden really wanted to run with me. I told him we were doing 2 miles and we would run a little and walk a little. He said lets do this!
It was so neat to have him running with me! He kept up and even got a head of me quite a bit! I was so proud of him!
I think I might have made a new running partner 😉
Mid Run Smiles for ya 😉
Another 2 miles logged!
Tired Caden and tired pup!
So So Proud of this kiddo!
Daddy and Forrest Caught up with us back at the house. High fives for 2 miles!
Can’t wait to see what we accomplish this week!
Happy Mother’s Day!
Day 2! WOW I am sooooo sore!! Running on the road is so much different that running on the treadmill! Seriously I am so stinking sore. I was shocked this made me this sore! lol But I know that this too shall pass. I stretched a lot today. Thanks for that advice I got from several people today on FB and Instagram. I will stay on top of that. Got another 2 miles in today. I am still kinda in shock that I have done this too days in a row now!
This 1st picture is me all bright and cheery and smiley because I haven’t run yet 😉
I am thankful to live on a back country road where I can run without too much traffic.
This is me at the 1 mile mark. Still smiling. It was much warmer today than it was yesterday!
I was a little more confident running today so I knocked a few seconds off.
This is my face when I see the hill I have run up.
And my final time today for 2 miles! woohoo!
So Lots of water and lots of stretching!
Thanks for reading!
I have been feeling so uninspired in my health and fitness journey. I have tried and tried to get back on track in the past couple months and just can’t make anything stick. I have been really focusing on asking for something to come to me to get me out of this rut.
While on Instagram I started having a lot of runner’s popping up in my newsfeed. They all look so happy! They are always running forever and ever and smiling about it! There is such a sense of community around it with all of them. It just started calling to me. Its been over a week since I started digging and fact finding about the benefits of running. I feel such a huge pull to do this.
I feel like I can hugely benefit from the mental and physical aspects of being a runner. So today after much procrastination I laced up my shoes. Downloaded and app. Put my head phones on and I RAN! You guys I RAN!! I overcame my fears and my doubt that I could go for a long run and not die lol. I know this might sound silly to some but It was just me getting a wrapped up in my head.
So this is day 1. I logged my first run. I ran and I walked and I ran and I walked. My first mile took me over 12 minutes. But its my starting point and I am so excited to watch myself improve!
If any of you reading this are runners and have any tips or advice for me I would greatly appreciate it! Please leave it in the comments below!
Thank you so much for reading!
