If you can dream it, You CAN achieve it

Another month has gone by since my last blog. I truly apologize.  I don't have a computer at home (its broken) so its very hard for me to be able to keep up.  A lot has happened in the last  month! SO many exciting things!

I still don't have that Y membership, but that's because we had some hang ups and ill be getting it within the next week.  About time! In the past month I've thrown myself into cross training and have gotten back into yoga.  It feels really good to be doing yoga again.  I really lost myself this summer.  Being unemployed and injured really put me in a funk.

In the past month, I started working.  Those two jobs did work out for me, yeay! Now im working at a Salon and at Swarovski.  I love having two jobs, but its keeping me busy and im needing to learn to balance my life.  I work 13 hour days and still need to find time to hang out with my boyfriend and train. 

I decided that I'm going to treat myself to a birthday 1/2 marathon in San Diego.  I super excited.  I haven't been to California since 2009 when I was competing at USMS (united states masters swimming) Nationals in Clovis.  I start my 1/2 marathon training on Nov 3.  I cant wait to start; I love that I am not just running to run (which I love to do) but that I am also running and training for a purpose.  The half marathon is on Feb 22nd.  I spent a couple weeks perfecting my training plan, I even made sure that I have consistent rest days, and I hate rest days, but my body needs them.

This past weekend, my #energybits came in the mail.  Here is the link to their web page so you can check them out and read all about the product energy bits  I took 8 my first time trying them.  Holy cow do they give you energy!! I felt like I had just drank 3 or 4 cups of coffee.  I took fewer then the packaging suggests, but I did so on an empty stomach.  I felt so energized.   It really helped! The early morning workouts I have coming up, im going to make sure that they are #FueledByBits because they really work! I suggest that everyone check them out.  Its an all natural energy source, whats not to love!

Okay well, thats about all I have for right now.  I have a super busy work week ahead of me and am trying to keep my life in a healthy balance.  My anxiety seems to be higher then normal so im trying to foucs on centering myself, looking at the positives and doing daily prayer and meditation. 

"You have to wonder at times what you're doing out there. Over the years, I've given myself a thousand reasons to keep running, but it always comes back to where it started. It comes down to self-satisfaction and a sense of achievement."  -Steve Prefontaine
