Week 5-Training for #7

60 degrees in February in MINNESOTA…NO!!!  But this week YES!!!  Lets just say spring fever has sprung and it feels amazing.  I was outside for run every run and also enjoyed walks and bike rides with the kids.  This nice weather will continue for a couple of more days then back to reality…I mean winter.  No complaints from me though, but it sure has been a good break.

Another good things happening this week was my eating.  I have owned 21 day fix for years actually since it was released several years ago. But I never used the program or the DVD’s.  Remember my goal was to watch my eating and the struggles I have posted on here.  I always start the week strong but by the end I just give up.  So knowing I had this program I did some searching on the internet and found this post, How to mix running and 21 day fix..  YES, this is exactly what I needed not just for my strength and stretching, but also for my eating.  I am one week in and like it, mentally I have just slowed down and methodically think what I am putting into my body.
