So people ask me all the time - Why do I run? I never knew how to answer to recently. I run because I love it. It's pretty simple. I run because I love it! I need the time to be by myself - if you know my schedule you get it. I like the way running makes me feel and I love the friends I have made from running. Even social media friends - I love if I'm not up for a run I can tweet something and get a crap ton of motivation from people from all over. Running makes me love my life and really cherish the world more.
With that being said - I'm having a hard time to get back into it now. I LOVE my CrossFit, but I still want my running time; however, with that being said, I am so overwhelmed with life right now. I've lost my love. I need help finding it again. Now, I know some of you are going to say it's only been a week since my Half marathon, but I haven't run but 2x since that and I'm going into my second week. Granted last week I was sick and told to take the week off, but this week I am struggling to get going....I need to find less excuses and just get going...
So, trying to get back to there!
Paleo is going FABULOUSLY! Honestly, I am so thankful for this challenge from Aspire. I feel so good! Better then I have ever felt in my adult life. So far, I am down 10lbs since the challenge started. Not even on purpose. I feel as though I eat more food now then I have ever before. Plus I am cooking a whole lot more. I am thankful for the people in my box for showing me more things to make and play with :)
Crusted Chicken - I need some more food for the rest of the week and into the weekend!! Plus, I have a been craving a cookie so I found a Grain Free Chocolate Cookie recipe.
I needed those! And they were fantastic! I am bringing some to people from the box tomorrow!
CrossFit is going great too!! I swear - Aspire + all my crew there are the best thing that has happened to me in a long time. Justin & Alycia are great and have done the best with me and their gym! I'm sure ya'll get sick of my talk but I LOVE that place and all the people I have encountered! I have had a good week - my first go at Fran & Filthy50s. I also did my first 2-a-day and gymnastics class (with a KILLER benchmark workout that day haha). I can't wait to see where I go. The first 4 months have been exactly what I needed!
That's all for today! The new CSI is on - have to watch :)
