Good morning #fifam! It’s actually Monday morning and with the day off I have some time to write blog posts for the next few weeks.
More importantly I’m sitting here freaking out! My heart is literally racing.
Want to know why? Good. Because I need to talk to someone and who better than the fitfam! I know you guys will understand.
Today marks Day 1 of a training cycle for my goal race in May. As soon as I looked at the training plan my heart started pounding. Along with the racing heart rate came a feeling of vulnerability which is prime time for feelings of fear and doubt to creep in. And, all at the same time, a feeling of excitement for this journey to begin.
Yes, full on freaking out mode!
Back to the The Fit Dish topic for this week:
Top 5 All Time Best
Health and Fitness Decisions
Do you ever think about the person you are today compared to who you were a year ago? 5 years ago? How did it happen? Was it intentional? Was it fate?
A series of actions and journey’s taken that culminated into living my best life and finding clarity, meaning and purpose of who I am meant to be.
In May of 2011 I challenged myself to eat clean for 30 days. My husband always says I never really ate “bad” but making this one change did something for me that doctor’s and medications could not.
Clean eating stopped my migraines. I’m talking headaches so bad Chad had to take me to the emergency room. MRI after MRI. Gone. I have not been back to the ER or taken a single medication for migraines since May of 2011.
June 4, 2011 “at the age of 43 I am more fit, stronger, healthier and happier than ever before. I owe that, in part, to clean eating.” -Jill Conyers
Becoming A Runner
In 2006 I signed up for my first race, a half marathon in southern California. That decision irrevocably changed my life forever. That was the beginning of becoming the person I was meant to be.
October 30, 2006 “From the stretching to the finish line it was the hardest and most amazing thing I’ve ever accomplished!” -Jill Conyers
In 2010 I made the decision to cancel my Lifetime membership and set up a home gym. I loved Lifetime but the travel time became an excuse not to workout and an obstacle to consistently working out. Eliminate the excuse along with the unbeatable convenience and workouts became more consistent than ever.
Move Nourish Believe
Embracing the Lorna Jane Active philosophy has made all that I believe to be true doable. It gives me the much needed clarity to be the best version of me.
August 28, 2014 “Those 3 words embody a sustainable lifestyle. A simple perspective that has helped me get rid of all the extraneous “stuff” that I don’t need. I’ve actually lived an active lifestyle for many years but MOVE, NOURISH, BELIEVE breaks it down to simple concepts that remind me living my best, most beautiful life doesn’t have to be complicated. With busy lives it’s not always easy, but the concept is actually quite simple.” -Jill Conyers
August 8, 2014 “A happiness that doesn’t come from stuff and things. A happiness that isn’t contingent on success and accomplishments. It’s a happiness that is gained from looking within and seeing and accepting who you are. It’s a happiness that is unconditional and is not subject to the all too familiar comparison trap.” -Jill Conyers
