Lace them running shoes up just right…not too tight not too loose…check! Favorite running socks on….check! Groovy running pants and of course a weather tech running shirt...check! And all my son could say to me is, "Wow, so many things have changed about you mom"! He is so right! While on this journey to losing weight and discovering the nutrition in food and the importance of being hydrated a love for running has developed. Many people would consider it crazy to even think of running a mile...
My mom once told me that, because of my Spina Bifida, the doctors told her that I would never walk. Then once I began walking, they told her that if I became overweight as an adult that I would become wheelchair bound. As an adult, I was always fairly fit even without the benefit of what little exercise I could do due to my physical constraints. But once I got married, I slowly started to gain more and more weight. I got the "happy fat".
Did you know that Kale is a great food full of vitamins (even calcium!). It tends to have a bit of a bitter taste if you don't cook and season it just right (or hide it in a smoothie!), but these chips don't taste bitter at all! My kids love them and eat an entire batch in one sitting! If you are on P2 then make these without the oil and cheese! Sprinkle with a bit of Celtic sea salt and any other approved seasonings!
Last year, I started Grace & Strength, finished it and then became a coach! Since then, I've started running and have a pretty consistent exercise routine. I totally love my life but never saw how a trip to Disney World would put such a perspective on my "new" way of life. Early February, my hubby and I decided to treat ourselves and our 2 kids to a family vacation to Disney World.
My journey on the Grace & Strength plan started in mid-September of 2012. It has been one of the most life-changing, educational experiences of my life. Let me start by saying that I was a HUGE skeptic. I watched a friend have tremendous success on the program and still had many doubts. My poor coach put up with so many questions and doubts and arguments from me! As we say in the south, Bless Her Heart!
