You need to workout but you also need to mow your lawn!! Well, a push mower takes care of both AND gives doubly the sense of accomishment after close to an hour in the FAT BURNING heart rate zone. I'll take that, thank you. #cutlawncutfat
And on the eleventh day, she kept going! Man, the 5k challenge started strong. Mostly because the weather was so nice and it was refreshing to be outdoors. Then, winter decided it wanted to revisit and my trusty treadmill had the joy of keeping me accountable. This...was not so refreshing.
Fortunately, I have been blessed to be on vacation the past several days getting my mileage in, both running and walking, and even skiing one day. Again, I feel refreshed by the outdoors!
I am MOST REFRESHED by the gals also taking on the challenge. Daily, I see a post, or receive a text, letting me know their 5k is done for the day. How awesome is that?! I love knowing I'm not a lone. I love when women support one another. This motivates me and encourages me to keep going.
So with close to 56 miles under my belt, between the 5ks and just every day walking, I'm ready to go into the next leg of the journey fired up. Ready for another week of 5ks to account for my FitBit activities.
Those of you killing it every day, keep it up. I'm proud of you! We're going to FINISH THIS TOGETHER!
I ate my first meal with a good amount of protein and healthy fat this morning. I have pretty much been eating things like white rice, yogurt, oatmeal, nuts and soup broths the past week, and it was still not bland enough to help my tummy. So far I am doing alright with breakfast. And I'm hopeful.
Hopeful I can get back into my routine this week and hopeful I will be able to function normally again. I'm pretty sure I either had a very aggressive stomach bug, or came into contact with some food poisoning. At any rate, here's to hoping it is behind me and moving on!
This week should look like this, and I am going to take it a bit easier with MORE restorative sessions:
