There’s someone I haven’t introduced to you yet. His name is Hudson and he is my roommate’s dog.
Hudson is always excited for me to come home, loves to play with his toys, is more than willing to help you finish your food (not me though. I don’t share food) and is beloved by all in the house. This little guy is super cute. He also moves a lot and this is best picture I could get of him because he has so much energy.
I also love tracking packages that are being shipped to me. I got an email yesterday saying my new running shoes had shipped and I now get to follow them until they arrive at my house! It’s the best.ever. Plus then I get to wear them to the gym as I go do non-running activities. It’s going to be awesome.
California is really not that far from Utah….is it really going to take until Wednesday?? Yes, I know that’s tomorrow but I just think it’s reasonable to think they could make it to Utah from California today, that’s all.
Yesterday at work, I saw some information about a woman who was born with an incredibly rare medical condition. Because of this situation she isn’t able to do any heavy exertion. Or much exertion at all. This limits the types of physical activity she can do. She also has terrible eating habits, usually snacking throughout the day and only eating one real meal a day. This has led to her being incredibly overweight and unhealthy.
Now this woman is not completely in control of her situation but she is in control of how she’s chosen to handle it. She can’t do a lot for her exercising but she is completely throwing away one thing she has complete control over: her nutrition.
In one of her podcasts that I listened to over the summer, Jillian Michaels said something to the effect of
You can easily eat back any workout.
Simple and mind-blowingly true! We could exercise all we wanted and train for a million things, but if we’re not giving our body the nutrition it needs, when it needs it and in the correct form, we are throwing away all of that hard work. I also believe in moderation and knowing your own body and what it needs to have the most energy and work at its optimal level. It’s a work in progress. Believe you me, this is still something I am working on improving. My diet is a million times better right now than it was even 6 months ago but I know I still have a long way to go.
I don’t have any specifics to go over but I just wanted to throw that out there. Nutrition and what we put into our bodies is so important. What if a day comes when you can’t exercise anymore or in the same way you used to? (reality check: this will happen to all of us eventually) Would your eating habits keep you healthy or do your workout habits cover up your poor eating?
Anyone else have a dog?
What’s one thing you do to strive to eat healthier?
Speaking of reality checks, it’s October 22. The most beautiful month is almost over. How come time goes by so fast?
