Running Motivation & Accountablity on Wednesday Rewind

Running Motivation
Race 3 NTC 5K Series 2012

Running motivation is deep in my soul.  On most days anyway. :)

I love looking back in the past for Wednesday Rewind.  It gives me a clear understanding of how far I’ve come.  This was actually a post from last year this time.

I decided to pull it out of the Fantabulous Day Blog vault.  That was the blog name back in the day. :)  This gives me running motivation like nothing else.

Back before my 1/2 Marathon, I wrote…..

I have eyes on other running blogs and I also listen to several running podcast.  There I can find lots of running motivation.  Since one of my goals with this blog is to inspire others, I thought I would start posting my training for the week.

I do post my runs on my 1/2 at 6000 ft page (currently removed), but I wanted to also post a quick update weekly on the home page.

This is just another way for me to hold myself accountable and to also, hopefully, inspire others to get moving.

I write on this blog for accountability reasons as well.  I always say “If you say it out loud, then you have to follow through”.  :) Writing in a journal is one thing, but blogging is taking journalizing to a greater level.  I’m sure all bloggers would agree.

I’ve been know to start things and then get demotivated, but this time I’ve committed to the Disney 1/2 marathon and I’m all in, mind, body, and soul.  I already paid my hefty entrance fee and am really looking forward to doing the run.

Running Motivation
After lunch time run.

Any who…. here is my week in review:

My main goals I accomplished for this week:

15 miles, the goal was 20.9 mile.

Long run was 6+, the goal was 7+.  I am OK with this 6+  That was darn good for me.

That’s great running motivation for me.  Don’t you agree?

My focus was on form and running longer.  I had been running for 30 mins at lunch and I have extended that to 40 mins.  I have been going a bit slow, but I can usually get in about 3 miles at a time, which is good.

Another week down and one week closer to January 13th.

Running Motivation
I had only run a couple of miles so I was feeling pretty good. Had to get the photo op in with my signature peace signs.

This was written in August of 2012.  Now look at me.  The Disney 1/2 Marathon is well under my belt and I’ve other race events in my sights.  You can check out how I did from my Disney 1/2 marathon race report.  Don’t kill yourself laughing.  If I can run Disney anybody can.

Now thats running motivation for ya!

7 Inspiring Benefits to Having an Annual Checkup Gals & Guys

An annual Checkup should be on everyones list of to dos. So listen up.  I have been sitting on this post for awhile.  I actually had my annual checkup a couple of months ago.  I didn’t want to drop this post totally because it is so important.  I hate to admit it, but I am one of those stupid people who justifies not seeing a doctor because I’m afraid they are going to tell me I’m going to die.  :oops:

I have since come to the realization that most life threatening illness can be diverted if you catch them early. There were also some unknowing & unlikely bloggers who inspired me.

Annual Checkup
Stephanie does it for her mother.

There is Steph over at OrangeSpoken.com – Her mother pass away from cancer last year.  Steph is a big advocated of getting yourself checked out.

Annual Checkup
Early detection turned in to early prevention.

Then there is Lori over at ToeNailsAreSoOverRate.com .  She had a cancer scare and is making sure she gets checked up regularly. We actually hooked up for lunch and are working on some fun biking meet ups if the wheater decides to cooperate.

Annual Checkup
Says don’t be afraid.

Then there is Meghann over at Meals and Miles.  Meghann did a post on having a pap smear.  Bloggers all put it out there for the whole world.  That is inspiring for me anyway.

I want to stay healthy, so I plan on getting my annual checkups if I can.  I think I will start saving money for a body maintenance fun.  That way I can make sure I am doing the best I can to live as long as I can.

Annual Checkup
Pap all done.

7 Benefits to Having Annual Checkups

1. Find out if you have any problems early in the game. Early dedection could mean the difference to a long life.  I don’t know about you but I want to live and live positively.

2. Give yourself peace of mind. Although I did have my annual checkup, I still find myself obcessing sometimes over little things.  Those things can stress a person out. Then I think back to my annual checkup and know I asked all the right questions and had all the right test to be at peace.

3. You can’t fix it if you don’t know its broke. If your car was making strange noises wouldn’t you fix it?  That is if you knew about it.  There are so many things that go on under you body hood that you can’t see.  So lift up your hood and have a look.

4. You may get great news. I got a clean bill of health.  I was told I only needed to take in more vitamin D.  What a great feeling.

5. It’s better to be safe than sorry. What if you don’t have an annual check up?  If you are like me, you will continue to obsess about little unimportant things.  You many develop something life threatening.  If you are like me, you will think “Damn I wish I had that checked out early.” I’m all good though thank God.

6. Think of it as a oil change.  You wouldn’t dare miss one of those for your car because if you did it could break down in huge way.  The same goes for your body.  An annual checkup is a people oil change.

7. So your family can have you for as long as possible. (PERIOD!)

Annual Checkup
Don’t forget the dentist.

I don’t think the bloggers in the blogosphere really understand their influcance when it comes to matters like this.  Thanks for the inspiring me everyone. I hope this post adds value to someone else’s life when it comes to an annual checkup.

Now go get your annual checkup DAGNABIT!

Your Healthy Lizzy :)

FD261 – Living a New Life Chapter – 7 Ways to Embrace Change

My blog has been running for more than 2 years.  I actually passed my two year anniversary a couple of months ago.  Talk about a missed opportunity to wrtite.  Well I have been going through a lot of changes since the beginning of the year and I am all over the place right now. I consider this time a new life chapter.  I wanted to share with you 7 ways to embrace change. Straight from “The Positive Aspects of Life as I Live it” count down style.   :)

New Life Chapter….Change 7….Travel A Lot….

New Life Chapter
Washington DC was a hoot.

Part of my New Life Chapter was traveling like crazy.  Where exactly have I been this year?  I traveled from Afghanistan to Orlando, Orlando to Afghanistan, Afghanistan to Dubai, Dubai to Afghanistan, Afghanistan to Washington DC, Washington DC to Atlanta, Atlanta to Orlando, Orlando to San Diego, San Diego back home.  Now that is a mouth full.  WOW!  I enjoyed almost every minute of it.

New Life Chapter….Change 6….Quit Your Crazy Job….

 

New Life Chapter
An indication of a crazy busy job.

 

I quit a good, but crazy job…….Peace of Mind means so much more to me these days.  I know quitting a job is not an option for most, but I couldn’t keep up with the unorganized crazy work load.  Top that off with the sacrifice of being away from home 98% of the time.  I decided it was time to pack up up and get back to the real world after 7 years working overseas.

New Life Chapter….Change 5….Make Some Cool Videos…….

 

I’ve been making lots of videos lately and loving it. I was invited to join a 30 day video challenge.  I didn’t quit make videos the whole 30 days, but I learned A Lot!  That was definitely a win in my book.  Subscribe to the channel to see lots more videos.

New Life Chapter….Change 4….Do Something Different & Keep Moving…

New Life Chapter
Hey, I’m a biker now.

 

Not doing a lot of running, but making an attempt to get a good moving schedule.  I’ve been finding other ways to incorporate my exercise. Biking has been on my list for a long time.  Still not all in with the biking thing, but working on it. I decided to started twitting my moving/fitness journey under the has tag #MoveLizMove.  You can follow me on twitter if you like.  http://twitter.com/QueenLizForADay

New Life Chapter….Change 3 ….Family Time, Lots and Lots of Family Time…

 

New Life Chapter
Got to go to my cousin’s graduation.

Enjoying my family & just hanging out.  Relaxing has taken on new meaning. I always enjoy the time I get to spend with my family.  They are some cool peeps.  :)

New Life Chapter….Change 2…Grow Your Own Food…

 

New Life Chapter
Started my garden on a my patch of land.

I finally started a garden. I have really, really been waiting to do this for a long time.  More to come on the new garden.

New Life Chapter….Change 1…Be Strong with the Decisions You Make…..

 

New Life Chapter
I’m feeling stronger these days.

 

Doing lots and lots of much needed maintenance around the house.  Sooooooo I can say with all honesty it is good to be home.  Still don’t know what I want to do when I grow up though.  That could be a problem, but I’m not really worried about it.

Your Loving Life Lizzy :)

FD253 -The Secret to Youth, Good Friends & Fun

Secret to Youth
Who’s that?

Yes it’s another me picture.  And yes I know the Secret to Youth.  :) I’m looking pretty young if I do say so myself.  I just recently had B-Day, but I never like to make a big deal of birthdays.  And yes, I am stuck on myself, but at the same time, I can’t tell you how many times I have been complemented on my youthful looks.  Sometimes when I see myself, I have to agree.  :)

Secret of Youth
Not bad at all!

There is a Secret to Youth…..

Good Friends & Fun.  I was thinking maybe food too would be the secret to youth, but I really don’t eat that healthy, so I could not justify using that statement at all.  Although, I have had some great meals since I have returned to the good ole USA.

Secret of Youth
Can you say yum!

That’s salmon, vegetables and fried rice.  It was so good.  I really miss not having access to great and fresh foods.  I will say, I am not missing Afghanistan at all. I must admit, it is not just the food that you eat, but the company you eat that meal with.  I never eat with people I don’t like.  That would make my meal miserable.  I haven’t had that problem lately. The company is fantastic.  The company is definitely a secret to youth.

I can honestly say, I laugh everyday all day with my buddies.  We talk about the good ole days and give advice to each other about our drama these  days.  It is amazing how much people are the same, but still different.  We have all grown so much spiritually.

Friends definitely are put in your life for a reason.  I’m truly blessed.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Although I can’t be with all my buddies, I think about each and everyone of them often. I truly believe that is the secret to youth. Any way, I sure wish that youngun Justin Timberlake was older.   Check this video of one of his new hits.

Peace out Friends, Family & Bloggers

FD240 – TGIF, Daily Mile & Lots of Thanks…Oh Easy Lentil Soup

TGIF Actually, Thursday, is my Friday.  TGIF (Thank God It’s Friday) is such a wonderful saying.  This has been a hectic work week and an awesome workOUT week for me.  I have been on fire when it comes to my workouts.  Just the fact that I am doing them consistently is mind blowing.  :) For those of you just joining the LizForADay community I am off on one day and that is Friday.  Oh joy! :)

TGIF reminds me to give thanks…..

I have so much to write about and so little time to do in.  Hey, I wanted to give a shout out to all my new and returning readers.  I also wanted to Thank you all for all the supportive comments that you leave.  I luv, luv, luv comments.

I am trying to get back to my blog reading schedule, so I apologize if you guys don’t see me commenting on your blogs.  I coming back I assure you.  I can never get enough of blog reading.  :) As a matter of fact, I keep adding more blogs to my reader.  I love bloggers.  They are a wealth of GREAT info.  :)

TGIF

Thanks to all the newbies here joining LizForADay. I appreciate your presence.

TGIF reminds of the goals….

Those goals that I haven’t had time to reflect upon and set.  I will leave that for another post.  I am trying to get completely back into my routine and it is tough.  I want to make sure the goals I set are within my success range, if that makes since.

TGIF reminds me that it is time to relax …

And focus on my mind and my body.  I will most likely workout on Friday (today), but I will definitely not be working.

Daily Mile TGIF
My workout for last week & next week. (Click to Enlarge)

I used my time today to schedule my workouts for next week.  That works great for me. First thing that had to happen today is for Miguel & I to make a trip to the post office.  We are working on down sizing.  I don’t think I was too successful at that.  Oh well….

TGIF reminds me to make sure my Daily Mile is updated.

[otw_is sidebar=otw-sidebar-23]

I inadvertently had two Daily Mile accounts.  I couldn’t figure out why my widget was not moving.  Thats all fixed.  I would love to have some friends on daily mile.  It is like having workout partners or should I say workout buddies.  I like buddies better.

TGIF reminds me to prepare for next week.

TGIF
Lentil Soup

I believe mentally preparing for the chaos to come helps me to keep the stress down.  I can prepare some meals, even when I don’t have a kitchen.  Today I am making some vegetarian chili.  Some I will taste, that goes without saying and I will put the rest in the freezer for another day.

Someone asked me what I eat as a vegetarian.  Believe me I ain’t starving.  Here’s one of my go too meals.

TGIF Super Easy Lentil Soup Recipe

(Keep in mind, I use a lot of dried ingredients because I don’t have access to fresh.  Feel free to substitute)

Ingredients

1/2 cup Chopped onion
2 tbs Olive Oil
1 tbs dried Carrots
1 tbs  of dried celery
1 tbs Minced Garlic
1 tsp. Dried Oregano
1 Bay Leaf
1 tsp dried Basil
1 diced tomato
1 cup of Lentils
8 cups of Water
1/2 cup of dried spinach
1/2 cup of dried corn

Saute the onions in the same pot that you will cook the soup.  Once they are soft throw in everything but the spinach.  Cook for 1 hour.  About 45 min in, throw in spinach.  DONE!  It is that easy. Lintels don’t need any soaking either.

Let me tell you, you can’t go wrong with this recipe.  You can put in anything you like or leave out what you don’t like.  I like a lot of corn personally.  Don’t feel like you have to be married to a recipe.  Make it your own.

This turned out to be extremely tasty. You can eat it with rice, quinoa or with some crackers and soup.  I also like to flat pack it in Ziploc bags to save space in the freezer.  I give it a thumbs up and call it a win.  :)

If you are interested you can check out my Vegetarian Chili Recipe.

That’s it for today folks.

Have a Fantabulous Weekend World!

Your Thankful Lizzy :)

FD239 – What Ground Hog Day & Vitamins Have in Common

Sillies….That’s easy.  You start a vitamin regiment and everyday it is the same ole thing. :) Just like Ground Hog Day.   I know ground hog day was a couple of days ago, but who cares.  Anyway..this post is really my take on what vitamins mean to my life, what I take and what I believe (based on a bit of research) are the benefits of taking certain vitamins.  And I will also tell you if I have benefited from them.

But first the short story about Phil….  :) (Yeap it is one of those days)

Supposedly Phil didn’t see his shadow so spring is coming early.  Yeah! I’m doing the happy dance.  That means I can run outside, because right now it is a hot, cold and a snowy mess here.  That means natural vitamin D from the sun.  Who is Phil You say? Read on…..

First let me give you a little history lesson about ground hog day. You know you want to read it.  Really here is an infographic.  I love those.  :)

Ground Hog Phil

Ok I guess Ground Hog day doesn’t have that much in common with vitamins, but I just wanted to post that cool infographic.  I think they made those just for me.  OK on to the meat and potatoes of this post.

The vitamins…..

vitamins I decided to do some research on the vitamins that I am taking.  I know that there are alot of people who are starting their vitamin journey as a new years resolution.  I have been taking most of my vitamins for awhile, but I thought it would be a great time to    re-evaluate what I am taking.

Also I had some people ask me what I take, since I’m a strong,  Shera of a Marathoner now.  :)  OK maybe a baby marathoner, but a marathoner none the less.  I plan on milking that for all it is worth.  You can read the race report for yourself.

Here is what I take and how it is suppose to be good for me.

Vitamin What is does My benefits
Fish Oil Provides Omega -3 Lubs joints
Relora Stress & Appetite Control Rarely take, Not much benefit
Acidophilus Balance Digestive System Helps reduce yeast infections
Raw Probiotics Balance Digestive System Helps reduce yeast infections
Creatine Monohydrate Muscle Energy Increase Give more energy during workouts
Folic Acid Supports Healthy Homocysteine Levels Also helps to reduce yeast infections, and promote hair growth.
Eyebright Eye Tonic Helps to keep the eyes healthy & disease free.
CLA Toning Formula Helps to build muscles.  Maybe.
Echinacia & Goldenseal Root Immune System Supports Helps to stay well.
Ketone Lean Weight Loss supplement Assist with digestion.  I believe it.
Elderberry & Zinc Supports Immune System Helps to stay well.
Vitamin D Supports Bone, Breast, Immune & Colon Health Helps me to have strong bones and healthy skin.
Flaxseed Oil Omega 3 Lubs joints

So that’s it.  Do I believe they all work as they should….well some, but not all.  It makes me feel stronger, so I guess that is all that counts.  Mind over matter.  :)

Remember…..

FD229 – Ditch Resolutions..Make Monthly Goals

I decided to Ditch Resolutions for the new year along time ago.  While they work great from some, I find them no good for myself.  I do however think monthly goals are great and fall in line with my BabyStep philosophy.

 

First in order for the whole monthly goal thing to work for me, I had to look back at January of 2012.  Then I had to say to self “Self I can I be a better Lizzy in 2013″.  That’s an easy answer.  I was chilling this time in 2012 and packing up for my new, now current job.

This year I will be on the travel goat trail to Orlando and then back to Afghanistan.  I will not bore you with the details of my trip…TODAY…  You can look at my post for travel planning to see what I will attempt to get accomplished while I am home.

I think everyone should ditch resolutions for the new year and follow my lead.  I am going to be more exercise active while on my trip.  I will be counting the exercise I get shlepping my bags through the airports and beyond.  It is time for me to think of exercise differently.  Moving is more than running.  I want to expand the way I do things.

 

Ditch Resolutions
Does this mirror make my butt look big? Yeah!

January will be a year of expansion of the mind and not the butt, if you know what I mean.  I am going to give more thought to what I eat, drink and how I move.  That is my goal for this month. I will worry about next month when it comes.

Say with me…

  1. Think about what you eat
  2. Think about what you drink…time to go on a no soda streak again.  I know they are terrible for me.
  3. Think about how you move.

There I think that will be easy.  Well..We will see any way.  :)  Those will be my baby steps for this month and it shouldn’t be too hard even though I will be on vacation.

Your Baby Stepping Lizzy :)

PS. I actually wrote a short post.  I know..I can’t believe it myself.  :)  And can you tell, this was suppose to be my Wednesday Rewind, but I was too busy breaking things that took a whole day to fix yesterday.  :0

Ditch Resolutions for the New Year Question:

What is your main goal for January?

FD214 – Christmas Kickoff & Staying Sane When You are Far Away From Home

Christmas Kickoff
Christmas makes me happy..but what doesn’t.

Just like most of the world, Thanksgiving marks the official Christmas Kickoff.  I’ve been playing my Christmas playlist religiously daily.  You know a Christmas Kickoff would not be a Christmas Kickoff if you did not drive all the ones you love batty by singing along with the music…..LOUD!  Yeap…I’m one of those people.  I don’t care how bad I sound.  I demand to be heard singing all my favorite tunes until well past Christmas.  :)

Christmas Kickoff
Daniel playing with the tree.

There is no ground that is sacred when it comes to THE  music.  I play it when I’m cooking. I listen to it when I’m in the powder room getting ready for work.  I listen to it when I’m doing yard work.  I even listen to it in the car.  And of course I listen to it at my desk with total disregard to race religion or sexual preference.  :)  All the tunes I listen to are clean so there is not issues…. usually.    Well…the issue may be the volume and genre.

Christmas Kickoff
Finished Tree

I have not been in that much of a Christmas mood lately.  Work has be tough and super busy.  I have be 50% grouchy & 75% bubbly.  I have to stay bubbly.  That is what keeps me sane.  Any way.. my boss gave me a mission.  A mission I accepted.  That was to decorate our building.  Really it is more of the hallway that he wanted done, you know so everyone could enjoy.

Christmas Kickoff
5 oh..carrying some of our loot from the store.

Finally today, me and Walt ( which I affectionately call 5..oh or the hall monitor, because he always has the scoop on things) went to our little store and purchased decorations.  Keep in mind the company is paying for everything, so we did it up.  We were able to get a lot more than I thought.  I never have to do these things alone.  I usually just start doing things without asking for help and everyone joins in on the madness.  Just like family should.  :) I really love the people I work with.

Christmas Kickoff
My mom sent all these Christmas Movies.

A few ways to stay sane when you are far away from home are:

Watching Christmas movies………. Listening to Christmas music ( that goes without saying)….party planning….Staying in touch through social networking…..living vicariously through blogs……working out…..knowing you have a great support system in place at home…having the means to do a bit extra….reflecting on Christmas past.

Christmas Kickoff
Derek & I taking a We picture.

Here are some pics, mostly of me, for our official Christmas Kickoff & holiday decorations day.

It was a good day at Green Village.  We had fun decorating the tree.  That gives us a little bit of home to hang on to. :)

Christmas Kickoff Questions:

What do you consider the official Christmas Kickoff for you and your family?

What do you think is a good way to stay sane even when you are at home?

 

FD207 – Recharge Your Body….& Breath

Recharge Your Body
Isn’t that beautiful?

Who would refute the fact that you should recharge your body on regular basis.  Unfortunately that just does not happen, at least not as often as we would like. I was running this morning and it is not unusual for my mind to wander all over the place.  When I snapped back into reality I notice I had been on the treadmill for quit a while already.  I hadn’t even notice that the time was passing by pretty quickly.  I was feeling pretty good.

I think I can attribute that to really relaxing during my super wonder vacation in Ubud, Bali.  My body was well rested and ready to get back in the grove of things.  I felt stronger and my body does not have that worn out feeling.

Someone asked me today if I was up early running, which I was.  He said you have so much energy Elizabeth.  :) I like the fact that someone noticed.  I love attention.  :) I had to think about that though.  I have never thought of myself as a high energy person.  I am definitely not a morning person, but lately I have been jumping right out of the bed.  I been surprising myself.  I have been planning my evenings better also.  I am winding down and in bed before 10pm.  I tried to make that wind down time 9, but I just don’t have enough time in the evening to get everything done that I want to do. I get off work at 6:30.  That only leaves 2 hours of me time.

Here are some ways to Recharge your Body….

  • Recharge your body by getting quality sleep & rest.  You can go to bed earlier.  So you won’t look like me in the picture. Sometimes it’s not possible, but you really should give it a try.

    Recharge Your Body
    Take a nap like this guy or girl, or something.
  • Keep moving.  You don’t have to be a runner or a super athlete.  I find the simple act of moving more really helps me think better and not be so stiff.  It makes me feel good.  How about you?
  • Find a quite place and clear your mind.  Close your eyes and think about love.  Meditate.  Find the inner peace within you.  You can also use visualization also to take you away.

    Recharge Your Body
    Meditation does the body good.
  • Drink water.  You would be surprise at the difference hydration makes in your mood and how you feel physically.  I feel energized when I’m hydrated and sluggish when I’m not.
  • Think about what food does to you physically.  Case in point.  I am lactose intolerant.  Ice cream is a killer for me.  I know it is going to make my body turn against me.  I had to say to myself (My mantra) “I’m not going to eat things that hurt me.”
  • Dance around when no ones looking.  Release some of that pinned up energy & have fun. Or better yet dance with the kids.  That is always a hoot. :)

    Recharge Your Body
    Silly me, dancing for the picture.
  • Laugh.  I am the queen of fun.  I am always smiling & love to make people laugh.  I am no comedian, but I can crack some good ones on a whim. I must say, I’m pretty witty at times.  :)
  • Take a bathfor Gods sake.  I don’t know about you, but I love taking baths.  They make me feel so relaxed.  It is the perfect place to think or not think about anything & you get clean in the process. Clean is always good.  Wash away all the negative vibes.

    Recharge Your Body
    Yes that guy is bathing in public. I swear.

Remember the mind, body & soul are all connected.  It’s never a bad time to recharge your body.  It will thank you in the end.  Take care of your body and it will take care of you.  So there you have it….. a few ways to to recharge your body so you can live life on the positive side of the street with me.  :)
