Happy Tuesday everyone! Hope your wonderful week is in FULL swing and that you are loving life!
My weekend was great and FULL! Saturday I was invited to speak at the One Breath, One Step Prior Fat Girl event and it was a BLAST! I spoke on Breaking Barriers in our lives and in our health and fitness. SO much of our success or failure is mindset and being consistant, which I blog about allllll the time.
The audience really makes the event! They were fun to speak to, had questions and really were engaging.
The amazing group of women--all working on goals and all on a healthiness journey! Jen spoke on relationships and the impact that our healthiness journey can have on our closest friends, family and signifigant others. Often, a change in our goals or behavior can put a strain on that relationship because it changes the foundations.
Have you ever lost a friend or had a strained relationship because of your choices to be healthy, get healthy or change your lifestyle?
The Long Run!
For me was not as long as it needed to be, but it felt good! I got a call from Ann who ran Honolulu Marathon with me and we met up with a few other girls training for Twin Cities! It was SO fun to run with a group of girls, I am bad about being social with my running which I miss! Here is Marie and I goofing at the end of the run!
The distance ended up being about 10 miles and a some change, we ran the last part of the Twin Cities Marathon course which ends coming down the street to the state capital, it's an inspiring and beautiful finish, I am thrilled to be taking part! Wooot! Go marathon! I was running a pretty steady 9 min mile on Sunday...I need a running watch, if you use one, do you use a Garmin or a Polar??
Refueling after! ALWAYS a must!!
REMEMBER: When we do what makes us happy, others will be happy too and life richer!! Find what makes you happy and DO more of it!! For me that means more consistant workouts this week and taking time to read and realx in my living room. What makes you happy?
