3 changes in 3 months

Hi

This year I changed a lot of things in my life. But there are three main changes that are the reason I feel I’m working on becoming the better version of myself. I change my diet, yes only have been three months and almost a week working on my new lifestyle (keto diet) but so far is working wonderful. I have lost weight, I feel that my health have been improved since I decided to take more care of myself. The second change is that I stop drinking any type of alcohol drink. Not that I was drinking a lot but here and there like 2 or 3 times at month a beer or a cocktail. So for me wasn’t that complicated and I feel I don’t need it anymore to live a better life. That wasn’t a goal like quitting all but as part of the new diet it is a plus so “two birds kill in one shot”. The third change that I made was to let my real and natural hair breath without any heating tools like (flat-iron, hair dryer and curling iron). I also tried the Curly girl method to improve the quality of my hair curls. It was an amazing experience. Made me my love more my hair, and take a better care of it. I hope to continue with this amazing change because my hair is like part of my roots and a good reminder of it.

In general this 3 things have been the most amazing experience in a long time. I’m going to continue this journey of my new lifestyle that I have been loving.

I’m very proud of myself for taking the first step to make changes into my life.

My goal is to keep going!

Ps: I started to run again!!!!!! &  I added the foam roller into my life!!!

6 is better than 0

Hi! (short)

The month of July was my new start again. I’m glad that I made that decision. I’m thankful that a least I can walk. Running is not in the near future, but I’m so focus on looking forward to that day, I dream and think all the time about is a little bit crazy… Can you relate? I also get a little bit sad of the fellow blogger or instagrammers that post the recent event/ race or the miles they ran. But is not a bad sad is more like I know I can do that but first is my health and it going to take time, you need to be patient.

In the month of July I walk 6.37 miles that wasn’t the goal but something is something right!

This month has been a lot of change in my life, and I need to adjust to them so I can include the walk (running in my mind) to the new schedule/routine.

Sometime we don’t realize or appreciate the ability of walk. Like someone say that I don’t know. -You need to learn how to walk before you run. So I want to take this opportunity to be grateful to have this two legs and that I can walk. I want to take the necessary time to heal and be to my 100% to do the best.

Heal is a process and this process take time.

Be Patient Catherine…

Planning my next training

Hi!

I still running not the distance I want but at least is something. Right!

I want to start planning my next training schedule to achieve the distance I want to before my new goal distance event. Which is a 10k. Yes I’m so excited to this new chapter in my running journey, is something I have been think about, since my health is good and the doctor gave me the green light. This is what I’m looking forward to accomplish.

My longest run was 5.00mi years ago. It was on November 2013. I remember it was the running/walking type of run. I also remember it wasn’t plan at all. It was fantastic.

So this week my training start. I have 17 weeks to training. So I have a chart with the distance/workout I want to complete each day per week. I add some workout at home and the rest days. Everything can be modified and the chart is good to be accountable and obtain motivation.

Let’s see how it goes…!!

Go RUN!

Hi!

This is a short post…

This week had been a little busy, crazy and a lot going on…which is good! I still doing my runs in the days I can. On Friday I needed to run, I had one of those days that I need me time, clear my mind, and just be relaxed. My method is RUNNING! On Friday it didn’t happen. So on Saturday I woke up, put on my running clothes and when for a run. In this run a lot happen. I was very committed to run non-stopping and I was focus. You know the mind is powerful.  I ran 1.70mi non-stopping which It never happen before and I have been running short distance since 2013. I stopped for a while and this year 2017 I started again at it. This happen because I was determined that this was the goal, this is what I want. So Is happening!  I completed a 2.75mi. run. It felt and still feels good that I achieve this. This is just the beginning, I’m going for more!!!
