Stupid things that make me feel like I have started to really experience the life of a runner.
Soaking a shirt with sweat Swallowing a bug while running Tripping and totally scraping up myself Blisters on my feet Sore legs for days Getting lost Constantly looking for new hype songs Doing the runners nose blowing when stuffy Running through the feeling of needing to throw up Holding in my pee Keeping my pace and re-doing my pony tail Passing people up Getting a sip of water from random sprinklers Falling in to a trance watching my shadow Getting the best ideas (but always forgetting them) Shin splints Making my last mile the fastest mile Getting jealous seeing others running when I can’t Smiling when my endorphins kick in Inspiring the people in my life to run
7 months ago I could hardly do a mile and if someone were to tell me I’d be capable of doing Half-Marathons by now, well, I’d never believe it. Definitely amaze myself sometimes.
I’m just another runner but I love every sick/agonizing/gross/painful/beautiful moment of it.
A healthy lifestyle, to me, means giving your body everything it deserves. It means living in a way that is good for your physical health- nutrition & fitness- and emotional health. These 6 tips help on all counts! They burn calories in healthy ways that are sustainable and on top of that are great ways to give yourself some “you” time to collect yourself, focus and unwind. The idea is to pick however many of these you want daily to make small lifestyle changes that, in the long run, make a big difference! (Remember, 1 pound= 3500 calories burned so doing just one of these each day burns nearly an extra pound per month!)
"Picture yourself when you were five. In fact, dig out a photo of little you at that time and tape it to your mirror. How would you treat her, love her, feed her? How would you nurture her if you were the mother of little you? I bet you would protect her fiercely while giving her space to spread her itty-bitty wings. She’d get naps, healthy food, imagination time, and adventures into the wild. If playground bullies hurt her feelings, you’d hug her tears away and give her perspective. When tantrums or meltdowns turned her into a poltergeist, you’d demand a loving time-out in the naughty chair. From this day forward I want you to extend that same compassion to your adult self."
