I got this in my email last week:
Over the past 8 years I haven’t logged every workout I’ve ever done, but I surely logged a lot of them. I now regularly log pretty much every single workout I do accomplish. It made me think a little about my Fit by Forty plan.

When I am experiencing pain and dis-ease, I use it as an opportunity to re-evaluate my lifestyle and my environment.
This was one of the statements in a section of the Wellness Inventory I was exploring today. I really like how the word disease is broken up to mean something similar, but different.

Six years ago I wrote a post called First Steps in which I was musing about waiting for my baby to start walking and about how hard it was for me to get started back to exercise:
First, I am no longer 23 or 29 or even 32. Last year when I started back running after a cool winter break I was able to just jump right into it and take off with a rather nice 9:30/mile pace. That dropped off as I got pregnant, but I was still happily walking almost 5 miles a day at about 13:30-14:00 mile paces until E got here. Today I ran 1.07 miles at a pace of 10:56/mile. Age has a lot to do with the slowing down. It effects your metabolism as well as your muscle building capacity. Getting old kind of stinks, but I’m not “old” yet, because my kids aren’t old enough to tell me I am. So, for the time being, I will just remember that getting back into shape takes time.
In 3 months and 23 days I will be turning 40. Age has always been a random and not concrete feeling to me. I don’t regularly feel like I am “my age”. However, my oldest (who is 9) has started telling me that I will officially be old this year when I turn 40. I am curious as to how that will feel.
What age did you think was old when you were a kid?
What age do you think is old now?
How as turning 40 for you?
Last week I shared my Wellness Vision for Self Love and Responsibility. This week I want to give you some key updates on my progress as well as tell you a few things I have learned about through meditation and my work on trying to better this dimension of wellness. I really hope that you’ll consider giving yourself the gift of self love and responsibility this week.

And just like that it’s June!
I live at the beach and June is usually the time of year when we really start going to the beach and the pool a lot…..but not this year! This year I am not beach ready, nor pool ready, nor socializing ready. I am ready to keep up some consistency! Continue reading “Training Plan Tuesday #15 – June 2020”
Last week I decided to focus on the area of Self Responsibility and Love in order to make sure that MY wellness is a priority. I did this because I felt I have been making bad choices and allowing others’ judgements of me to influence my decision making process. I decided that I needed to be a priority in my own life.
Every semester, when teaching about wellness, I ask my students to first come up with a Wellness Vision for the semester. What would it look like for them to have a well and whole semester? I usually try to give them an example of what it would mean to me…..

For the past week I have been debating on which area of focus to start with for this new attempt to really get my wellness in check. You can read about that here:

I am starting from scratch. Teaching from home while teaching my children at home while recovering from bronchitis left me without the necessary schedule to continue my high level of training that I had at the end of February and into March. So, I’m starting over….. Continue reading “Training Plan Tuesday #14 – May 2020”
