One of the reasons I love sharing my favorite podcasts with you all is because in return I get a million suggestions on what I should listen to next. While I do consider myself a podcast aficionado (;)), I definitely am not aware of ALL the amazing shows out there. That’s where all of you come in to enlighten me.
They like to run, jump, play, and spin. They’d always be on the go if we let them. This desire to move their bodies is purely driven by a carefree sense of fun and adventure. It’s not until later in life that movement becomes synonymous with exercise and kids (who are probably now teenagers) start moving their bodies deliberately and for ulterior motives. Calorie burn, muscle toning, and strength building perhaps.
Your heart is pounding. The sweat is accumulating on your back. You breathing quickens and the lactic acid begins to build in your legs. You can feel your body working and you begin to feel in the zone.
This is an especially challenging run and the last thing you’re focused on are those a round. You’re aware of your body, your breath, and making it through that next mile…maybe just the nest step. Then you see another runner approaching from the distance. You feel you don’t have the energy to muster up a ‘hello’. But as you pass, you exchange a nod, a smile, and manage to a small ‘good morning’.
After the heaviness of yesterday’s post, I thought we could keep things a little lighter and have some fun on the blog today. Also, some people said that yesterday’s post triggering in some ways. That was not my intention at all. I only wanted to introduce you all to a concept that I recently learned about and am working on in my own life. I wanted to share with you Isabel’s message because I truly think she can help people who struggle with food and diet issues. That’s it. I in no way wanted it to seem like I was promoting restriction of any kind. In fact, my whole point was that restriction is limiting and is usually only occurs to cope with something else going on in our lives or for control. This is something I struggle with too and I felt like people may be able to relate. I am very sorry if it came across in the wrong way.
