What’s Next

So Lent is over.  I ran for almost 45 days straight.  That pesky forced reset kept me from running one day during the season of Lent.  I did however stay away from sugar the entire time.  I can tell you it was nice to not have to run on Sunday, and as a result my […]

I Have No Choice

So I am going to be honest.  I started a devotional for Lent and I got behind on it.   And as I read multiple days to catch up I noticed that while it is not bad, it’s just not my style.  Only about 1 out of every 5 days hit a chord that gets […]

I’ve Got Nothing

Literally, I sit here and type with nothing to say.  Today was a Monday.  That is the first Monday in March.  A month left of running everyday and no sugar for Lent.  I am doing well on the running and suffering through the no sugar.  And that’s okay.  It’s supposed to hurt.  There are cookies […]

Apply Work Here

One of my workouts last week I noticed something.  It wasn’t anything novel and many people have experienced it.  Basically, I wasn’t having any fun working out.  Let’s be honest some physical activity just isn’t fun.  Usually it’s something we’re not good at.  I was in the midst of an 18 second forward plank.  I […]

I Forgot…Forgive me

So yesterday after dinner I remembered that I forgot to do my workout for the day.  Oops!  I had gotten home later than usual and got wrapped up in all the things that need to happen at that hour.  Prepping dinner, cleaning up after a toddler, getting dinner ready for and feeding the little girl, […]
