What's Important

Sunday, July 7, 2013

We've lost sight of what is important. I've heard things like, "It doesn't taste as good as skinny feels." How terrible does that sound? Don't eat because it feels better to be thin. That's an awful mantra to have. Yet we instill these messages in our teenage girls because having a perfect outside is more important than being healthy on the inside. Which would, in turn, lead you to be healthy on the outside as well. It's possible to eat and be thin, but we shouldn't have to strive for thin. Strive for healthy and you'll be beautiful no matter what.

I finished the No Cheese Challenge successfully! Did you?? Today is also day 7 of the 30-Day Green Smoothie Challenge. Have you been participating? I have! And I'm feeling great. Tell me how it's going for you. <3 Tomorrow is the beginning of the No Salt Challenge. Will you be participating? Let me know!

I finally got my run in today! It felt good, but I think I'm going to repeat this week on a faster speed. Just a little faster. I went too long between runs to feel comfortable. So we'll see. This could also be fear of next week's runs. I'm not going to stop, so I feel okay about it. Haha. Got my walk and squats in too. 50 was kind of hard, but I'll try to do 5 more tomorrow. I'm trying not to make too many goals. I just want to listen to my body and push myself when I'm ready.

Today I also took my first evening primrose oil pill and added hemp protein to my smoothie this morning. These are supposed to help with my hormones thanks to the BC pill detox. I'm all over the map, and I'd like to get back on track. I'm feeling a little weird about taking pills for this, but it's a natural supplement, so I hope it helps. Wish me luck.

I have so much editing to do, so I'm going to try to get lots done tomorrow. I want to walk, do my run, and get my squats in again tomorrow. Have to stay on track! I'm about to sign up for a 5K that's in September! WOO! I've never been a runner, but I've never been more excited about this. All on fruits and veggies, too. Hmm. ;o)

Eat your fruits and veggies, kids.

As I was reading, I was just wondering how the hemp protein was going, and then you mentioned it. I hope it's helping.

I think the hemp protein is helping build muscle. I've been gaining a bit weight, but I don't feel or see it as fat or water. Unless it's because I added a bit of salt back into my diet after the challenge, but I wasn't off it that long. I feel pretty good, so I'm not sure! :o)
