It’s been a long time since my last post. I’m sure everyone gets bogged down in life and rambled about all the things that have been preventing them from posting. Well lets get done to business, shall we?
- Submitted application to CASPA for Physician Assisting school
- Moved out, placed a contract on new home
- New home closing is in 6 weeks - countdown begins! (nope,not the townhouse to be built - cute home in Uptown Annapolis! of course it wasn’t the first, third, or tenth house we looked at..)
- Vacationed in Aruba for a week with the hubby
- Leave for Haiti in two weeks with missions group from Revolution Annapolis
- Continue working, learning the commute of our temporary stay - thanks to the in-laws getting a renter for our condo was possible!
- Vacation=amazing food
- Packing/moving/unpacking=cheap, easy food (paleo?? where did you go?!)
- Completed the 10K on June 2nd! Amazing weather and had a blast with the girls running it. 3,200 participants. ZOOMA rocks.
- No real workouts since the 10K
- Bike is still at garage in storage and needs to be moved to current home :(
This leads me back to Paleo Pace & getting back on track. Reflecting through these past posts, I’m noticing a trend. Not sticking to game plan, continuously getting back on track… RRR! Well I suppose I am human and life gets hectic. So if there’s anything I’ve learned, it’s just to keep on going and get back on track, now (and pray!). Lord knows I need more than my own motivation and goals to keep putting one foot infront of the other.
Some exciting tools I want to introduce to everyone! I am armed and feel ready to go with:
- Everyday Paleo Lifestyle & Fitness membership
- Whole 9’s book: It Starts with Food
This membership provides a community of menus and workouts. Every other day they post a new workout. You initially start with their Beginner Modules, which help to assess and prepare you for the posted workouts. The forums are filled with super nice people and reply quite quickly! I’m very excited to give this a go and add some serious structure that my workout regimen has really needed. Along with finally adding lifting back into the routine. I am being shunned for the distance running though, which I knew I would be.
Many paleo idealists do not support the idea of chronic cardio that isn’t sprint based. Or frequent for that matter. I completely agree and understand the science behind these beliefs. BUT on my goal list has always been to run a half marathon and it wasn’t until doing the prep work for the 10K had I felt it was even feasible! So here I am, registered for the Baltimore Running Festival Half Marathon on October 13th! I’m super excited, very nervous. I haven’t ran since the 10K and todays very short run was brutal, it definitely doesn’t take long to loose that running momentum. Once I return from Haiti, and with the advice from the trainer Jason on EPLifeFit forums, I’ll hold off on any serious training for the half marathon until about mid July to August. This will allow me to get a good base of strength again and not take away from the foundation of awesomeness that EPLifeFit has in mind for me. (I suppose this was long enough..time to wrap it up)
I’m super excited for all the new chapters that are starting in my life and marriage right now. Even more stoked about my trip to Haiti and continually thanking God for everything he has blessed me with.
Good night Tumblr!
