Runners Meet.com

Austin and I shared a "Funny" yesterday. He is quite witty and can turn a ordinary story into a comic strip.
I picked him up after school yesterday and was telling him how I ran with a new gal, "Melissa".

AUSTIN: "So mom did you know this chick?"
ME: "Yeah, Austin, she is my client and I went to school with her."
AUSTIN: "So like you kinda know her....Well where did you run?"
ME: "I met her out in Grand Blanc."
AUSTIN: "So is this like "Christian Mingle or Match.com? Is it like Runners Meet.com? You like meet runners in random places??"
"Be prepared, bring a pair of shoes and get ready to sweat, all shapes, sizes and colors welcome!"

I laughed so hard at his Infomercial!

Today at RUNNERS MEET.COM  I met "Danielle" at Indian Springs for our 8 miler!
I am so stinking sore. My hamstrings are hating my guts. Specifically the left side. This is the left over damage from that boxing class.  I had to walk 2 times on our run because my body was puking me out. "Danielle" was awesome at letting me walk from marker to marker. I was surprised at our pace considering we had brought our pace down and added a couple walk breaks in there. We averaged a 9:15 pace. We had a lot of quietness in our run. I was really trying hard to concentrate. The mile markers were full of evilness. at 2.6 miles I thought "WHAT..How the heck am I gonna make it another 6 miles, shoot me now."
It was great to finish this run, but it was bitter sweet because I really enjoy "Danielle's" company.

I had a good day. Very very busy. Directly after running I rushed home to get cleaned up and meet Ariel's roommates at M.A.K.A.  I had some goodies for them. I love sitting and chatting with them. I wish I had done this before Ariel had passed.
Even Charlie showed up, Ariel's boyfriend! It was nice to laugh with them all.

I had to quickly leave there to get to a meeting at the school at 2:15.
The day kept going with a basketball game for Austin out in Hartland, bringing us back home about 7:45 at night.

Tired and hungry I had dinner in the crock pot waiting for us. My family is NOT a fan of crock pot meals. Although I have done good with my choices in this week menu. Today I ran out of favor!
My family loved the corned beef and cabbage on Tuesday and the chicken meatballs on Wednesday but really threw a stink over the pork loin and vegetables tonight.  I caught Andy gracefully chucking a mouth full in his napkin. I looked at him as he gave this little boy flirty look back at me. He was thinking he was clever and unnoticed, "Really Andy?? Come on." He laughed and I had to laugh because I knew he was trying to swallow it.

Not every meal is going to be every one's favorite. But it is healthy and we are so very fortunate.
There are things I eat and things I make my family eat that are not very popular but eating is for MORE than just for PLEASURE.
 We need to eat to maintain a healthy body. We can enjoy food but we also need to eat to sustain a balanced and active life. Our bodies are capable of doing so very much.
My boys have gotten little parts of being sick this season but it has not lasted long and they have not missed any school over it.

 5 Keys to eating Healthy
  1. Eat WHOLE FOODS...live foods...from the earth
  2. Stay away from processed foods, check the labels, keep the ingredients down.
  3. Drink plenty of water. 
  4. Bacteria feeds on sugar. If your getting sick STAY AWAY FROM SUGAR!! 
  5. Double up on your Juice Plus!
"Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul."
