Zombies oh my
Sunday, September 08, 2013
I finally started going outside to train for the zombie dodge run. August 31 I jogged for .8 mile, September 1 1 mile, September 3 1.5 miles, September 4 2 miles.
September 7 2 miles, and today 2.12 miles. I'm increasing the distance by gradual increments, and nothing I can't do safely, and having a lot of fun with friends who are serious about making sure I can dodge zombies. There are tons of logging roads very close by, and I'm using them because the route for the Redrun is a lot of hilly, rocky, uneven dirt roads and probably a good mile or so along train tracks.
I feel very good! I'm doing my stretches, warm up and cool down routines, and just learned of a technique called "tapping" to help release any negativity or doubt that I can finish what I start.
I did some investigation into a raw or mostly raw diet and decided it is not for me. I haven't got the time or money to invest in the stuff I would need to maintain good health on a mostly raw diet. I work for a living!! I don't have the opportunity to eat every 20 minutes! Egad. But I admire anyone who can maintain a raw diet lifestyle, as long as they are healthy. It's just not something I want to do.
But I'm still cooking a wide variety of foods, foods without added oils or fats, whole foods and good, healthy foods that are delicious and filling and low fat. I eat a lot of raw, fresh foods, too - my almost-daily fruit bowl, sandwiches with veggies, salads.
Life is GOOD.
