Y’all know I love to challenge myself, and I do best when my goals are clearly laid out…
Summer 2018 Challenge is… 175 miles!
Worth noting that 2 years ago, I would have seen ‘175 miles’ and basically said “fuck that, no way”….
And 1 year ago I would have seen the number and given it some consideration (and overanalyzed it) and maybe done it, maybe opted not to.
Now? I am like shit, yeah! SIGN ME UP!
Do I think I will RUN 175 miles over the next 2 months? No, but the beauty is that you can walk, or bike (3 biked miles = 1 tracker mile for this) and I KNOW I can do that – it breaks down to 2.5 miles per day – I can totally do that!
So, since today is day 1 of the 2018 Summer Challenge, I ran. I didn’t run super fast, I didn’t run super far, but I ran; I got myself on the board.
I can do hard things. YOU can do hard things.
Still time to join me and some friends who are doing it!
That’s what I have been doing lately, at least nutritionally (and if I am being honest, in many other aspects of life, too…)
But nutritionally I have definitely been throwing WAY too much caution to the wind and not only am I feeling as such within my emotions, my body is feeling the effects too.
It started with birthday cake (what, I shared!) and then leftover birthday cake, and it just sent me into a tailspin – much more alcoholic beverages, much more candy (something I actually hadn’t had too much of in 2018!), just a lot more choices that haven’t nourished me.
The good news? It’s Monday and I am ready to get back on track towards making such indulgences the exception, not the rule!
Like anyone else, I have my moments of veering waaaay off track – but I have also righted my own ship many a time, so I know I can do this! 😊
Everybody has something that brings them joy, that fuels them. Something they feel passionately about, and so doing anything related to it doesn’t at all feel like work.
Entrepreneurs are simply people who have discovered what their passion is and have said “I need to keep doing this. I need to pursue this. It doesn’t matter if I make a red cent doing so, this is what makes my heart tick, my soul shine, my spirit smile”
My two biggest ones are CREATION and HELPING people. Do YOU have a passion for helping people? Curious to see if this is a fit for YOU? Let’s connect!
Follow your heart – it won’t lead you astray, promise!
The best way to come back from a day full of everyone else’s negativity? Crush your workout with weights almost 1/5 your body weight…
I’m just saying, you can let it fuel you or let it frustrate you – yesterday it frustrated me, but today it fueled me!
Yesterday included someone who doesn’t think deaf people should be able to drive (or is at the very least BAFFLED by how we CAN drive), an idiot who thinks my sports bras are too revealing (at least that’s what I got from their absolutely illiterate comment), a nutter who went on a VERY LONG tirade against an interest of mine on an old pic, and someone who thinks I am wasting my money on having soft hearing molds instead of the firm ones, because that concept called “personal preferences” is apparently outdated?
I am human, yesterday was a lot of fuckery condensed into a short amount of time.
And battling the negativity yesterday frustrated and drained me…
