I'm still battling the injury right now, but I have been doing things to keep in shape, walking, biking, and I started the 100 pushups in 100 days challenge. Tomorrow is a run day hoping to go pain free or mostly pain free and get some decent distance in. I am definitely frustrated but I am positive because there is still plenty of fitness to be had.
On a fun note got my indoor garden rocking, tomatoes just blew up over night! and I noticed my one pepper plant looks ready to pop, so while I am at work I cranked the heat in the house to give them a little boost! I also ordered a bunch of fruit trees and vines which should be here the first week of April, in the meantime there is plenty of fitness to be had working the soil in preparation for the trees oh and in getting the house organized before Mike gets here. He made quite the tree order as well, we may have an over abundance of fresh fruits and veggies if that is even possible.

The IT band is on fire, I have been stretching it like crazy and it is not wanting to feel better, so far this year running is really frustrating me

I had a great time even though it was much too short. I ended up getting alititude sickness after snow shoeing in the mountains and so I didn't get the chance to hit the slopes snowboarding etc. that being said it was still fun, went to the Prehistoric Museum in Price, yeah I'm still a big kid that loves dinosaurs and fossils, probably why at one point in my life I was a geology major. I picked up a brochure on how you can volunteer in the summer to go out and help dig, this may be an upcoming vacation for me. Really needed about a week and a half out there, guess that is what the summer trip is for (11days canoeing and sight seeing). Working on getting plants and trees for my yard and working on my organic garden, although it will be with much help from the BF who has the green thumb that I lack! I knew there was a reason I liked him ! Got a busy month preparing for him to move in, Yikes! J/K I am excited but it is a huge step and also the fastest way to learn how annoying someone really is lol! I also need to get my butt in gear been kinda slack and not training as hard as I want to be for the mini, so time to get some motivation and go juice and get serious about getting a new half marathon PR!

For a long time I was down, I had gotten dumped, weight loss was a pain, work was a pain, and it seemed drama was around every corner. The thing is I got out of that hole by deciding to do something about it, no it wasn't always easy and it wasn't always drama free, but I made a decision to take control of the things I could and stress less about the things I couldn't. I'm still struggling with the weight loss, but I am active so that is good. By finding less destructive hobbies (previous was drinking and late night pizza binges) like running, hiking, camping, paddlesports etc, I not only found better ways to spend my day but I have met someone who loves me for me and enjoys doing these activities, finally someone who I can spend life with that isn't counterproductive to weight loss etc. Through my change in dietary habits I have rediscovered my love for cooking and I am soon to take up the raising of organic fruits and veggies, as Mike is a big green thumb. So now I am doing something good for my health and better for the environment. I have found enjoyment at work by accepting that things are best the way they are now it gives me time to work on my personal training certification so part-time I can do something that gives me more personal satisfaction. I still have days where I get bummed but then I remind myself to get off my butt and go for a run because the is something I can always control and it seems to bring a smile to my face.

Took today as a rest day and I am looking forward to another quality run tomorrow. I am definitely back into training mode. Made some really great homemade soup yesterday which I am still reaping the benefits of. The general gist of it is lentils, garbanzos, a bunch of veggies, and whatever spices fell in there yum! Been researching kayaks, Mike and I are going to kayak and canoe all over the US this summer. Gearing up for the Mini and just overall feeling that healthy feeling that comes from doing the right things!
