Feeling Better...

Saturday, June 30, 2012

Today is my BIG day. Well, not so much of a big day anymore, since I'll be walking my 5K instead of running it. I have decided to be content and happy just to be able to walk it, even though I was REALLY wanting to run with all my running girls. I know, it is a waste of energy feeling sorry for yourself, ESPECIALLY if your legs are still working. I have a lot to be thankful for and even if I can't run today, I know after running for 2 monthes what I am capable of. I am proud of that and will get back to it as soon as possible.

I have been doing much better on my eating, which I am quite proud of. If my brief journey with running has taught me anything about myself it is that I am much stronger than I think I am. With that in mind and with most of my days being spent back on the couch I was trying to run away from, I decided to focus on my eating. I started reading the EAT TO LIVE book by Joel Fuhrman (again) and began eating a plant based at the beginning of this week. I already feel so much better. I haven't been hungry, I have had a few cravings but, not horrible. I haven't been perfect on my eating but, 90% of the food I have eaten has been unrefined plant food.

It is a small victory. I haven't weighed myself or anything. I think I am going to try to play it like my first weeks of running and just be glad that I am doing what I set out to do. Only, this time my goal is feeding my body the most nutritious foods I can get my hands on. Then, maybe I can get back to running faster if my body has the tools it needs to repair itself.

    Glald you are feeling better.. the couch does not have to be a negative. The are a whole lot of exercises you can do for the arms and upper body that you can do without standing... You can plan meals and shopping lists so you have the food to cook. You can write out goals and times to set them to.You can list all the things you have achieved so far in your life and know this is only a temporary set back... Go for it.... emoticon
