i realize this is so totally “new year” cliche but here’s the deal. 2016 i didn’t really do the best job of taking care of myself. a knee injury and just “life” got in the way & my running went down the tube. i let my pride get the best of me & essentially refused to “go for a vigorous walk” because i’ve always been a runner. or technically my time for a mile probably qualifies me more as a jogger but you get the point.
i sorta struggled with turning 50 last year 🙄 and perhaps my “subtle rebel” inner self got a little tongue in cheek about the whole thing but enough is enough. i’ve failed with losing & gaining back that darn weight year after year. ( she hangs her head here). bottom line. i need to make some changes. not only in my exercise regimen but in my diet as well. so i’m starting-again. yep again.- with some things that are probably uber simple & intrinsic to many of you but praying i can keep it up & yes one of them is working on my issue with 50.
one of the simple things i’m doing is replacing a meal (because i could eat chickfila every day) with something like i did today. (juice plus protein shake/tons of spinach & blueberries/banana/flax seed, etc) & maybe just maybe i’ll kick the 50 issue i’ve got going & run another 10k soon. let’s do this… #dontwasteyourlife #thanksforthepushLouie 😎👊🏻💃🏻
