Hi friends!! I can’t believe it’s been so long. Things have been moving along here. I’ve been exercising!! Yes! You heard correctly. My friend, Stacy, is a trainer and offered a deal for 4 people at a time for 14 bucks on Saturday mornings. My other friend Amy texted me and another friend to see if we wanted to do it in February and we agreed! It took 3 weeks of it before it got me off my bottom, but I’m glad it did. I think we are going to do it again in April. I have a zillion things in March, including my Spring Break AND St Patrick’s Day. My dad, Henry and I have tentative plans to go up, weather permitting. I love going to it because it reminds me of my Gramma, and plus this is the #yearofexperiences ! The weekend before my school has a 5K as a fundraiser. Our school is the fighting Irish, so they call it a Shamrock fun run.
Craig’s insurance offers this program called Real Appeal, and we started it last week. It’s like a healthy habits program where we get a coach, and this app to help us track food and exercise. We meet weekly in a group with our coach and we also can have one on one meetings with her. We also get a lot of free stuff like food scale, scale, and a blender! It’s all covered by our insurance! I am also in a support group by my friend Stacy, that is more personal, and provides workouts and daily banter and support with an all lady group.
Anyway, all of this to say I’m doing pretty well with nutrition and exercise. I’ve got a lot of supports and knowledge and I’m actually applying it! I’m being #carlystrong. I am not eating all whole 30, but I’d say I eat 85% paleo. I’m trying to be relaxed about food and not anxious. It’s been a good week for that.
Well, I’m off to church with Henry and my parents, then to Columbus to have dinner with some of my cousins from Cleveland! I am so excited.
Hope y’all have a great weekend. And, Heather, I hope your shoulder is feeling better!!
