So I want to go about this in the best way possible! Thank you all for following so far; I really really appreciate your support and likes 🙂 I think what I’ll do with my blog posts is to do an every-other-switch between fitness and nutrition. So one day running, then it’ll be food. One day exercises, the next food. I’ll keep posting recipes as I make them and insert writerly tidbits whenever, but I think this will help give balance and provide you all with the MOST info possible on how to make your life active and healthy all the time 🙂 You can tell I’m pretty passionate about this!
I am imagining that my next few posts relating to fitness will be groundwork stuff, stuff you never would have even thought of before stepping into the gym and picking up a dumbbell. The nutrition I want to continue talking about the superfoods and how to cook with them because I am a strong advocate for those. Eventually, I will be testing out programs and supplements (Shakeology anyone?). That way, I can recommend those here or warn you about what to expect and so on. I am super excited to be here and to be continuing to motivate and help others!
Also, my little sister Katie is doing super well. I failed to mention that she is also an expert cello player 😉 It has been unbelievably cold here in Illinois, sub-0 temps, and ugh. It’s just awful. But we’ve been getting her out to the barn to ride her pony when it’s nice-ish. (And that’s about 15 degrees or higher). Katie doesn’t get as cold as I do…in fact I’m pretty sure she’s hot-blooded and I’m part-reptile. We also re-did her room so it looks VERY much like a country girl, horse-lover’s room. The bedspread she has now, she selected herself because she said it reminded her of a horse blanket they wear in the winter! She’s so cute. Anyway, as always, without her realizing it, Katie has been inspiring me. I get stronger for her, I get faster for her. There have been some recurring struggles that took place yet again while I was hurt. And of course, the struggles caused me to grow weaker, thus prolonging me to recover and build up my mileage quickly. And though the problems and “roadblocks” are a long backstory, I am getting past the backstory and focusing on the many goals I have for myself and Katie. These legs aren’t just mine; they’re hers too. Read my How I Became A Runner page, if you haven’t yet 🙂
I live by this. I stand by this. And I will never get so low as to be weak again.
Have a lovely night everyone, thanks again for reading! xoxo
