I have really great news to share! As of today I am officially a…
If you want to find out more information about being a sweat pink ambassador you can read about it on the Fit Approach website! My friend Mary became one and as usually she inspired me to look into it and see if it was for me! And it is! What this means to me is that I am connected a wonderful and inspirational group of women who are on a journey to be fit and live a healthy life. This is such an opportunity for me to help inspire other people to follow their dreams on their fitness journey while I try to follow mine!! I am hoping to use social networking, running events, and family and friends to get the word out that being happy and healthy SHOULD be everyone’s priority! And that having fun in life is all part of the plan =)
And this came at a perfect time because today was also my first official day of training for the Akron Half Marathon. So when it was 85 degrees outside when I got home and my little legs wanted to just sit on the couch and watch some Keeping Up with the Kardashians but then the Facebook messages from the Sweat Pink ladies encouraging everyone to get out there and get moving came through and well…
I got out there and ran 3 miles in 32 minutes in 85 degree weather!
When you commit yourself to something.. you gotta get out there and do it right? For me, being involved in an organization and encourages women to be strong, live healthy, and HAVE SOME FUN is my type of place!
In addition to the first day of training, I also joined my mom in “the cave”. I figure if I am going to do right by my body than I should fuel myself with the right goods to get my body moving! So I’m back on the good for you track. We had a really successful grocery shopping trip (too successful according to the checkbook)
But no worries we got some delicious treats for those cheat moments that every normal person needs every now and then
I had that cookie butter spread at Mary’s while we were in Charlotte a few weekends ago and it was well… amazing. So Tim and I made the half hour journey to Trader Joes to get delicious and healthy treats! I LOVE that grocery store and I wish it was just right around the corner. Prices are fair. Food is good. And it’s just fun.
Then we also went to Sam’s Club, Acme, and Giant Eagle. Yes every grocery store possible. We.are.nuts.
We had some homemade Crab Cakes that were pretty delicious tonight so I’ll be sharing that recipe soon!!
