Every week, I look forward to the Fit Dish Link-up and the optional topic. I love that they make me think and I love that! I also look forward to seeing what other bloggers share.
This week’s [optional] topic is how I move, nourish, and believe. On the surface, I could answer this in a quick minute.
Move: Run and PiYo
Nourish: Food, yes please!
Believe: Doubts…ain’t nobody got time for them!
But then I really started thinking about my goals and how these words fit into those and added a bit more.
Move: Sure running and PiYo (slowly but surely) are a part of my weekly routine. I’m also trying really hard to be more active and work towards 10,000 steps a day. I hit my target on days I run more than a mile. Days I run just a mile? I’m between 6,000-8,000 (including the mile). I need to find ways to add in some extra steps.
Nourish: This isn’t just about food! It’s about nourishing my mind too. I’ve started picking up my puzzle books. You know the ones that are at the grocery store? I love them! I’m a puzzle junkie. My favorites are the logic puzzles followed by the Brick by Brick crosswords. I really have noticed I was starting to forget things. (Thanks turning 40!). I decided that I need to spend just as much time “nourishing” my knowledge as well as my body. As far as food, my goal is to watch my portions this week. I’m a bit out of control. I think because I’m training for a marathon that gives me free range, it’s not. I’ve got to reel it in just a bit.
Believe: I had a moment of complete taper craziness. Cara was the recipient of a string of text messages where I seriously freaked out about our upcoming marathon. The minute I let it all out, I instantly felt better. The panic was getting to me. Thank goodness, she talked me off the ledge! I had to be remind myself why I decided to run another marathon. Because I wanted to run one. Because I can run one. Because it’ll be fun! Because why not?! Because we decided as a group to all run the same marathon!
