  • Your Body Is A Gift
    It was like I had a major light bulb moment. I mean for the last 6 years, weight loss has always been a goal along with getting more physically fit and stronger. And I've heard people say that you only have one body, and you need to take care of it blah blah blah...But it's like I felt this on a personal level - like WAKE UP GIRL! You have ONE BODY. It's YOUR responsibility to take care of the GIFT that you have been given. I experienced this while I was in bed with pain in both of my feet. My right foot was throbbing from the arthritis, and my left foot was in as much pain from my plantar fasciitis. In that moment it didn't take a genius to figure out that my body is really dealing with a lot of inflammation. And that I had been eating more for fun than for healing and nutrition. It was definitely another nudge for me to really work on focusing to eat with a purpose. Oh, another highly processed cookie, another scoop of ice cream, another handful of marshmallows really isn't that big of a deal! Or is it? There's a fine line with moderation. My moderation is obviously going to be different than yours.But lately, and for quite some time, my body has been yelling at me for crossing over moderation far too many times. Honestly, it's breaking down. I can't blame it on age. Sure, I'm 44, and my body is going to be different now than at 22. But I'm a smart lady to know that my body reacts to what it's fueled with. If you put the wrong fuel in a car, it's not going to work efficiently. Over time, damage is going to happen. Sometimes the damage is immediate; sometimes it's gradual.So, now that I have the knowledge of what to do, it's applying that knowledge and putting it into action. And I'm here to tell you that I am well on my way.Your body is a gift, how are you treating it?Writing is one of my passions, and I'm stepping out there on faith to follow my dream.

  • It Can Still Be My Year Of Health
    I have a lot of nervous energy right now. With Lil Man going to school full time, plus other family dynamics changing, I've been doing a lot and I mean a lot of nervous organizing. Yep, when I get overwhelmed I organize (sometimes clean). But it's mainly been organizing. I guess because I can't control other things I try to control what I can.... which is getting rid of clutter. Clutter drives me crazy. It really does. I take it as long as I can (because it doesn't bother others in my family) and then it just has to be dealt with. So this past week I organized a lot of areas in my home probably to the point of borderline obsessive.But I am SO glad that I was able to get out and MOVE this week. Yep, I took the boot off last weekend, and on Monday I went for my first run in 4 weeks. I didn't know what to expect. I was actually pretty nervous that I'd feel a lot of pain. My foot felt weird. It was still swollen and definitely off  - but no major pain.A post shared by Amy 🏃🏻‍♀️ 💪🏻 🍦 (@willrun4icecream) on Aug 7, 2017 at 4:38am PDTTuesday I biked.A post shared by Amy 🏃🏻‍♀️ 💪🏻 🍦 (@willrun4icecream) on Aug 8, 2017 at 4:21am PDTWednesday I walked.A post shared by Amy 🏃🏻‍♀️ 💪🏻 🍦 (@willrun4icecream) on Aug 9, 2017 at 4:21am PDTThursday I ran 2 miles. I did feel a sharp pain once, but it subsided.A post shared by Amy 🏃🏻‍♀️ 💪🏻 🍦 (@willrun4icecream) on Aug 10, 2017 at 4:41am PDTFriday I rested because my foot was pretty sore. Actually, I've felt pain all week, but I was told that I would. Basically it's supposed to be my new normal? It's not severe (most of the time) but it is annoying. There could still be a fracture, but I'm waiting to see how things progress.But the more that I've read, weight can play an issue. And from my unprofessional opinion, even muscle weight might be too much. Does that make sense? I was around 105-110 (I'm only 4'10") for the majority of my adult life. Over the last couple of years the weight has definitely crept up to the 130's. Some of it is muscle, and some of it is definitely fat. But I think regardless, I need to take some weight off. So that's where my focus is at the moment - losing the weight and seeing if it does help with the pain.I'm not really sure how to proceed with lifting. I think it's important. Do I not lift as heavy? Do I use more reps and lighter weights? I'm not sure about all of that at the moment. But I do know what I can focus on and that's eating with a purpose and keeping my food in check.I said at the beginning of this year that this would be my year of health. WORST. INJURY. YEAR. EVER - but you know... the year isn't over... and it doesn't mean that it still can't be my year of health.If I lost a pound per week, I could realistically lose 15-20lbs by the end of the year which would put me back down to normal by the charts. And it would put me where my body was used to being pre-weight gain. My blood pressure is really high in addition to the other issues that I currently have going on.I'm disappointed that I'm not running my Harrisburg and Hershey Half Marathons, but instead of focusing what I can't do at the moment, I'm going to focus on what I can do.And what I can do is KEEP MOVING like the doctor told me to, and focus on healthy weight loss.It's too early to tell what my future running holds, but as long as things continue to progress, I plan to run twice a week with cardio the other days. (with of course a rest day or two). I will modify as needed.The journey to a healthier me continues.... and I admit that I'm excited about the idea of shedding the extra weight.To health...If you like this blog or this post, please take a moment to share it with friends. Share this on Facebook?

  • My Very Brief Experience With IIFYM
    Ok, let me start off by saying I am NOT a doctor. I do NOT have medical knowledge, and this is MY PERSONAL experience only.Now that we have that out of the way, I considered trying IFFYM (If It Fits Your Macros) previously this year. But at the time I just wasn't really committed to giving it my 100%. But previously this summer, I decided to give IFFYM another try.For me, it was like calorie counting on steroids. Not only do you need to stay within a calorie range but now you need to stay within a certain range of macros. I thought it would be super overwhelming, but it really wasn't all that difficult to come pretty close to the macros. I never hit them perfectly each day. But I felt that I was coming close enough. For the first 3 days I was doing ok, but then well.. you know.. that thing called life... and I didn't have my planned food available... so I ate what was available... and then I went over... and because I went over... well why not... and before I knew it... I was bingeing. I am embarrassed to type that but it's the truth. I told myself to just start over the next day, and I did... for the first part of the day... then it was ice cream followed by s'mores followed by chips.. I mean why not? I was already over my goals and had blown it for the day right? And here we are again.. back to square one.. Well don't stop now...Click here to keep reading!

  • Injury Update - YES The Doctor Told Me To
    Just wanted to give a quick update for anyone who might not have already heard. I went last week for a follow-up. I was actually in a lot of pain, as much pain as when the injury began. The x-ray did not show any fractures, BUT I was told that I could still have a fracture. I will need a bone scan or MRI to completely rule out any fractures. What did show up, however, Well don't stop now...Click here to keep reading!
