Beautiful morning for a race! Finished my third half marathon today… My feet hurt. Very badly. It was an absolutely gorgeous run, but man I am so glad it’s over!

#transformationtuesday because sometimes it’s really important to remember how far you’ve come and how much your life has changed.

I’ve been feeling pretty discouraged lately as I’ve been struggling quite a bit… It’s so important to stop and recognize where you came from and to realize that, yes, you CAN keep moving forward.

For anyone who needs a little motivation and encouragement today:

My weight has fluctuated literally 10 pounds on the scale since Tuesday.

Don’t let that silly number determine your success or slow your progress.

When that number goes up despite my eating well and exercising, I get discouraged and figure, well, if it’s not going to go down when I eat right, then I’m sure as hell going to eat what I REALLY want.

Do not do this. Do your clothes fit well? Do you look good? Do you feel good? Go by that, not a silly number that can change hour to hour depending on what you’ve eaten or what exercise you’ve done.

Have a good Saturday, and keep up the momentum!

Rain or shine, I’m getting it done. 8 miles on the dreadmill complete💪

Second run today. Why? Because I’d regret watching an extra hour of TV more than I’d regret an extra hour of running💪

Two-a-days, cause why not?

I’m not sure when I became the girl who wakes up at 5AM to go running, but OH what a way to start the day :)
