I enjoyed a 3.5 mile trail run around Hopewell Lake this morning. Yes, the temperature was a bit hot, even early in the a.m., but that was NOT going to be an excuse for me to skip out on my morning workout. Once I got started, I was so glad I pushed myself to get out of bed and drive up to the lake. The 3.5 mile trail was gorgeous, I pushed my pace, and I was rewarded at the end with the satisfaction of a job well done. On the drive home, I was ravenous ..... dozens of food options were whirling about in my head .... decisions, decisions. So here is where having the RIGHT FOOD in the house is important. What were the choices in my fridge? Spinach frittata, Chinese spiced chicken breast, raw spinach, carrots, asparagus, blueberries, strawberries, and cherries. I couldn't go wrong! I sat down to a delicious, nutritious, SATISFYING brunch accompanied by 2 bottles of water. Now ..... how did YOU start your day? What food have you eaten to support your desire to lose weight, gain strength, and be a healthier you? Review ... and chat among yourselves. Happy 4th!
I felt guilty about how overweight I had become, and how out of shape I was. Bambi got my mind straight about the "journey" I was on. I'm a work in progress, and every week I learn something new from her about nutrition and living a life of fitness. My progress has been steady(!) and I'm motivated to stay in this for the long haul. To say I "love" my trainer is an understatement.
