Personal Mantra

Dieting is not punishment, food is not reward, and healthy is the new normal. I'll repeat that for myself: healthy is the new normal.

Races as Inspiration

I have started running again and I have found that I am able to stay focused on my goals and get out there to run at least 4 times per week if I set some goals. I have signed up for 4 races this summer to help me stay on track. It doesn't matter if I win. It matters if I finish!

Embrace your ADHD

Although I am not the most efficient worker, I do think that being ADHD helps a little with my exercise. I can't seem to stay focused on one thing at a time and I also have a hard time thinking through every thing I need to start a project. So I have to jump up and run downstairs a lot!

Exercise is one of my jobs

I think of exercise as a career/job... would you get up and decide you're not going to work? No! You may not get money for this part time job but the payback/paycheck will be better than money (health, feeling great and looking great)

Exercise by any other name!

You cannot walk the dog without getting exercise youself! When your pup's gotta go, he's gotta go! Take him for a walk, and you'll be exercising youself.

Hate the dry mouth feeling when working out?

Pop in a piece of gum before going for a run. It helps get the saliva moving in your mouth and reduces that cotton mouth feeling!
