And another week rolls by. It was a good one for me, and I hope it was for you as well.
You’ll notice that our Rock Star logo has dropped the weekly designation. That’s proving too much for me to sustain, so we’ll just let it occur organically for now.
That’s not to say there aren’t all sorts of wonderful and inspiring accomplishments going on every week, because there are! Here are a few that I noticed recently:
– Julie [Half a Julie] completed the C25k! Her joy inspired ME to run, and y’all know I don’t do running!
– Leah [My New Ending] is a rockstar on her own, but it seems she’s raising rockstar kids as well. While her son was out rocking the soccer field and Leah was out running, her daughters were combining some fit-walking and Spanish-studying for a double whammy. And then they all celebrated with healthy cold smoothies. Fit family togetherness, in action.
– Stepping outside our fitness focus, Lorelle [Lorelle on WordPress] has been offering a series of blog exercises to work out the ol’ blogging muscles. Almost every single post teaches me something I didn’t know already or makes me pause and re-think things. In today’s post, Lorelle wrote about increasing our ‘thank you’ ratio, which prompted me to realize I haven’t thanked Lorelle in far too long. A lot of work goes into those posts, and I appreciate them. Thank you, Lorelle! You ARE a RockStar!
So what were YOUR rock star moments lately? I know you had them.
As I wrote earlier, I actually ran during one of my walks this week. Three whole minutes and not all at once, but I injected three one-minute jogs here and there. And I didn’t die. I jiggled a lot, but I didn’t die. I might do even do it again.
I also am kind of rocking the side planks in my Lifting for Life workout program. I’ve improved from 20-second-OMG-my-side-is-going-to-explode to 45-second-OMG-my-side-is-going-to-explode. Side planks have long been my nemesis (probably because I kept quitting them), so I’m pleased with the progress.
Today’s workout is in the bag, and I see that yesterday’s rain clouds have disappeared. I’m thinking a nice long walk in the sunshine is in my immediate future. But no running. I already did 3 minutes this week, and I don’t want to over-train.
Happy, healthy weekend to all!
