Checking back in half way through the week to say hello! I have some challenges to share with you, video-style, and would love to hear your feedback. Before I get there, I’d like to wish you all a HAPPY NATIONAL RUNNING DAY!
…Why do you run? Many people run to eat more (a bit of a backwards way of thinking, but I get it too…) – which leads into another week of some Fat Tuesday fun!
The group minus me – 8 out of 12 tonight!
The meal was delicious (of course I combined my greens and fruit – I’m a real food combiner – everything ends up in one pile!) and the company even better. Jon grabbed a bunch of different pizzas for a quicker meal and the salads were a great addition to give some good nutrition to the meal. I stuck with fruit and salad and then grabbed a piece of veggie pizza at the end of the night. 😉
We had some great discussion sharing about what God’s doing in our lives and how he’s moving and working. We’re listening to C.S. Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters on CD and really enjoying it (although it requires concentration to listen at the end of a work day, post-good meal, and comfy on the couch!). I love the good discussions we have and appreciate our weekly times together so much.
And now, onto the challenges! Check out my vlog below for the two challenges I reference and the links that I mention below.
- Runner’s World Run Streak
- Jess’ post about Run-Streaking…What do YOU think?
- Susan’s Ab Challenge (you can join in at any time even though today is Day 6)
So…share with me some of your thoughts about these challenges. Tried one like this before? Interested to join in? Leave me a note! And by the way, I’m writing this on the blog to keep myself accountable: I NEED to stop eating at night! Unfortunately, my mother-in-law made a delicious chocolate cheesecake and it’s stored downstairs in the freezer in the basement where we live…Even after being full and not hungry, I felt my sweet tooth kick in and dug in for some (albeit a small portion, but still). My issue is that I’m not really hungry, I don’t need the extra calories, and while I’m all for a snack most days, I’d already had 2 chocolate chip cookies today too. Yikes! So…anyone have any strategies to help me out? I’d love any little tips as I strive to feed my body clean foods to fuel well.
Thanks for checking in guys! Live well & be well today,
