"Keep Your Head Up, Keep Your Heart Strong."
(My Bear and I ran laps around the basketball court in the grass (10mins) while Daddy shot hoops. I just love seeing her little legs move )..
Being a wife, full time college student, navigating motherhood along with its many obstacles and leading a healthy lifestyle.. I just take one day at a time. Everyday, good or bad.. I'm in to win.
I put exercise and healthy eating on the same level as taking a shower or brushing my teeth. I would never go a day without doing either one of those things. I make it a priority, selective eating habits (restaurants incl) and performing at least 10 minutes, or more, of vigorous exercise everyday. Yes, everday. We all have 10 minutes of our time to spare. And yes, that daily 10 minutes or more adds up in the long run. Run for 10 straight minutes nonstop at any given pace. It'll get your endorphins flowing. Try it, you'll see!
My 'mile a day or more til grad day' challenge is still in full effect. Most days I've been doing just over 2 miles of light jogging, mixing in hills (incline) to keep things lively. For cross-training I go to yoga, circuit, and strength training to balance out my mileage.
Doing the same thing everyday can seem like an everlasting process and dreading, but I just keep plugging away at it. I have about 2 and a half months remaining til break. I have to remain heart and head strong. Leading a healthy life is a part of my lifestyle. It's not a hobby or leisure pursuit. However, I must enjoy and find solace in challenge.
My education is a top priority as well. Regardless of my preferences, I've had to set them aside to fulfill an undesirable task... Opening a facebook account so that I can meet a class requirement. That wasn't on my agenda for this term, but it is now. I'm rolling with it and taking the positives out of the experience. Outside of collecting data for our behavior study, I'm embracing the population. Connecting and catching up with folks.. even got some new subscribers.
