A Time for Gratitude
You have all heard when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Sounds okay to me but I have a different philosophy.....when you run and treat yourself well, you won't mind the lemons.
I haven't blogged about this much but I embarked on the HINT 21-Day Challenge to get sugary drinks out of my diet. I really didn't drink that many types but I had a huge addiction to Diet Coke. Yep, I did. ONe I tried to quit 1747519871973017 times. And you know what? I think I have finally kicked the addiction but I am not counting my chickens before they hatch. But with less artificial sugar in me I have noticed I am feeling better (although it took some yucky days) and fueling myself better. More on that to come later. Just trust me, it is making a positive difference in my life.
And that just makes me want to stop and smell the roses, like this lovely comment that was left on my facebook page.
I can't even express how much it meant to me and how it brought happy tears to my eyes.
And today I read through the comments on my post yesterday and am touched by the support of the online running community. A huge mahalo to each and every one of you because you all inspire me, or push me, to go one step further!
And for running news, I promise, my race report is coming soon but I am waiting for the official times to be posted so I am completely honest with you.
Have a beautiful day!
