Hi, friends! Happy Hump Day!
I woke up craving fruit juice this morning. Is that weird? We didn’t have any in the house so I went with the next best thing: fresh fruit. For breakfast, I enjoyed a nectarine, plum, a piece of toast with sunflower butter spread on top, and, of course, a glass of iced coffee with soy milk.
After yesterday’s epic 7-mile run in New York City, I woke up with tired legs this morning, but my marathon training plan called for 4 miles. I knew once I got myself out the door and running, I’d feel fine, so I forced myself to put on my workout gear and get going. Just do it, baby.
I started out slow with a mile warm-up and then stopped and stretched on the side of the road. I felt tight and lazy, so I dillydallied and enjoyed the scenery for a little bit before starting to run again.
I finished my four miles at a much slower pace than usual, but I got it done and felt pretty good doing it. Sometimes, that’s all that matters to me.
Feel Great Weight
My blog’s tag line is “sharing my life one bite at a time,” so I’m not surprised when readers make assumptions about my food and exercise habits. Putting myself out there on the Internet allows others to judge me more than the average person; it’s all part of the job. It used to bother me when people commented on my choices, but I’ve learned how to deal with them, which has ultimately made me a healthier (and stronger) person. Here are a few tricks I use to stay positive in the face of negative food judgments.
Question of the Day
How do you deal with judgmental comments when it comes to your health and lifestyle choices? Do you brush them off or take them to heart? Do they bring you down or do they make you a stronger, healthier person?
