Running, Fitness and Nutrition Recap
I know I’m not alone when I say I can’t believe HBBC 2012 is already over. When Amanda first started posting about HBBC 2012 I remember reading this:
I love this challenge because it provides added incentive to find time for workouts, find room for veggies and feel good through the holiday season. It’s a chance to put our BEST FOOT forward right now, no waiting for a new year!
I would definitely agree! Amanda’s challenge was everything she said and more! There were times when if it weren’t for the Best Foot Action posts and the points I would not have worked out. Congrats on another successful year Amanda!
So, what did my last week of HBBC 2012 look like?
Our first run date of the year.
My search for optimal nutrition and health and I think I may have found a few answers No, I’m not becoming a raw foodist but I do agree with a lot of the theory behind a raw diet.
This man is kicking my butt! It’s exactly what I needed to get back the motivation to strength/cross train and enjoy it!
I joined the 30-day Simple Green Smoothie Challenge. I drink green smoothies almost daily but just like with strength training I needed something other than my 3-4 tried and true smoothie recipes. This challenge has been perfect for finding new recipes.
Enjoying the veggies and realizing that is when I feel the best.
As a big fan of Brendan Brazier and Vega products I couldn’t pass up Thrive Forward. I loved the first Thrive program! Everything I learned along with vegan myths debunked is a big part of why I chose to become a vegan. Even if you’re not vegan the Thrive programs are a wealth of health and nutrition information. No I’m not paid to say that. I’m just a very happy customer.
I went through a slump last week and the week before. I was going through the motions without motivation and not enjoying what I was doing. I now know I needed answers and a little new and different in my routine. Happily, this week I’m back and feeling great [and sore thanks to Bob]!
