Fitness Friday - Improved Physical and Mental Stamina

This week has become a week of celebrations and today's celebration really helps to reinforce a point that I made in a previous post about variety in your workouts.  You see, I'm not a big runner, but I do enjoy going out and challenging myself to a wog (walk/jog) to just see how my training is going in my overall fitness/stamina. 

So today was one of those days, I just felt this need to run.  I went out to the track near our house and just started to jog. The entire time I kept thinking, "If I could just make it to XYZ location, I will let myself walk for a little bit." Then it became, "Well, I'm feeling pretty let's go one more lap." And then another and another.  I just couldn't believe that I kept jogging without stopping.  Since mile 1 was partially walked from my house to the track, I decided if I could just run one full mile without stopping it would give me an accurate picture of how fast I could now run a mile.

Here is what I found out...

imprompTuesday - Transformation Tuesday

Hello Everyone,

I've really missed blogging about something that I'm so passionate about for so long, but we really had a lot going on and not a lot of time to really focus on some fun "extracurricular" activities.

This past week was my one year "anniversary" since I had my husband take some beginning pictures on April 20, 2016 so that I could look back in a year to see how much I'd progressed since making some various adjustments in our life style.  I'm very pleased with the results and wanted to share my progress photos as well as a quick hit list of what I think made such a difference this time around.
