Welcome to Moxie Thursdays!!
It’s time to make it your best week. It is too easy to be stuck in a sedentary lifestyle. This can affect our health; both mental and physical. The best way to get out of a sedentary lifestyle is to get up and move around! This link up is to encourage and promote a healthy lifestyle that includes being active and eating well. This isn’t about losing weight, it’s about how you feel and using your body to the best of it’s own abilities.
I think I have mentioned that I joined a half marathon training group? Yep. And believe it or not, I’ve made it to every group run so far. In the past two weeks I have run fifteen miles, and I’m running a 10K on Saturday. I feel amazing. I feel strong. I feel like I’m finally doing something to take care of me.
I was out of shape and making very poor decisions. I just want to encourage you that if I can start leading an active lifestyle, so can you. Luckily I have a very supportive husband who is so excited about me running that he rushes home from work on Monday and Wednesday evenings to keep the kids so I can go join my training group!
If you are motivated by helping someone else, consider joining a Team in Training Group. They take anyone from newbies to long time runners and help you train for 1/2 marathon, marathon, or Triathlon. It’s free training, but you raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society while you run. I raised almost $3000 while training for my first marathon nearly a decade ago. At the time, a friend’s son was dying from Leukemia. Calvin kept me motivated the entire 26.2 miles.
Link up with us and share how you keep healthy! Lifestyle, fitness, food… share your best secrets!
Moxie Thursday is open for the entire weekend. Join us Thursday – Sunday!
