My 3 F's...
I went to church this morning after being away for a month. Between a conference, vacation, half marathon and chest muscles pain I have been away for far too long. I was happy to be there.
I have been struggling for quite some time trying to figure out where I can best serve with my talents. I am also restructuring-in my mind-what my priorities should be in the church. I need to put more of my heart there and less in other areas of my life.
I got another Fitbit last Wednesday. I've been using it and love watching my numbers go up. However, I feel I also need to get my walk/running routine down a little better. I had started a plan on Runkeeper but decided I didn't want to go with that schedule. I had 2 walks last Friday and with my increase in weight, I was feeling it as I went up hill. This had me quite upset of course.
I did get in my one run as well. SMH...I need to do better!
I have been processed sugar free for a week today. What I have discovered is that I have developed a routine of eating sweet foods before bed. I started snacking on foods at the same time so I am swapping one food for the other but the habit remains the same. So I am trying to figure out what steps I need to take going forward. I know that too much processed is bad. But eliminating it over long periods could create issues too. I need to practice moderation and that is something that is truly hard for me. I tend to have a ALL OR NOTHING mentality. I need to find balance!
My food intake has been fair. Not enough of veggies but fairly good on the fruits. Pay day is this week so that will help me to do my shopping and start making up some freezer meals that will be easy to stick in the slow cooker or put in the oven.
So all that being said, I sense a pattern with myself-total indecisiveness. I need to spend some time working on my goal setting for these 3 areas. I know that my faith will help steer me in the right direction for my Faith, Fitness and Fuel!
One step at a time, one day at a time, I WILL DO THIS!!!

I've discovered I have three F's on this journey: Faith, Fitness and Fuel. Without my Faith, I will accomplish absolutely nothing with my Fitness and Fuel
On this journey, what I have found is that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. So I know that my faith is the building stone of my journey. For me, without it, I will accomplish nothing. My priorities are sometimes jumbled but it all starts here!
I had some pains in the sternum area when I was stretched my arms back last night. I think it's muscular but it's hard to tell. I still felt it this morning when I got up so I decided not to go to church. My DD and I have been hanging out and watching Netfix since this morning.
I have set my alarm for 4 a.m. tomorrow morning. I want to get in my strength training before work. On Tuesday I officially start my beginner half marathon training-3 miles of running. I have already set out my clothes for tomorrow morning and packed a set of workout clothes for after work so I can run right after work. I'm really excited about getting back to running.
After blogging last night, I decided that it would be last time of having processed sugar for a while. The holidays will be here soon and I would like to detox well before then. I have no real plan except to take it one day at a time. That's all we can really do in life, right?
I am drinking as much water as I can-the race last week really seemed to make me crave water even more than I usually do. I am drinking just under or right at 96 oz daily. I would like to eventually add another 32 oz daily. For right now, my focus will be eliminating the sugar and drinking the water. Proper fuel is important to me. I also want to increase the veggies and fruits. I'm sure the fruits should be easy since I will be avoiding processed sugars.
