Time to Workout Again

I’ve been feeling a bit unmotivated to work out lately.  That hasn’t paired well with my tendency to eat when I’m stressed.  hmmm.  I think I’ve been really stressed lately. :)

The treadmill routine wasn’t getting me excited about getting back in the game.  So – I found a new treadmill.  Right outside my door.

And, I love it!  We live on a private road and one of my dearest friends lives next door and she’s been training joining me.  It’s been great because with her, I run longer than I would by myself.  And, she makes me run sprints in the section of sand that I almost have to put my truck in 4 wheel drive to get through.  yeah – I wouldn’t do that on my own.  Here’s that section.

The weather has been so beautiful in the mornings.  As long as I’m done by 8am.  After that, it’s just too hot.  Remember - I live in Texas.

And look – it comes with childcare:

The only downside is so much of the road ends up in my mudroom.

Yes, I did just put a picture of a pile of dirt on my blog.  Bear was quite confused and kept asking me why I was taking a picture of our dirt. 

I love living out here in the country, but I seriously sweep huge piles of dirt up every day.  If you come to my house, you will probably think I never clean my floors, but I really do.  The dirt is just faster than me.

It won’t be for long though.

I’ve been working out!

I love it too!!! Living at camp has it's great benefits! Our home is filled with sand daily....crazy stuff, but fun. Praying still for some movement...some hope, and for God's peace for your family.
