I started my day off on a healthy foot yesterday—feeling amazing after an early morning run, and made clean eating choices all day. Once I got home, I cooked up some grilled chicken with brown rice and a mixed blend of zucchini, squash, onions, and red peppers for a divine dinner. Putting on the next
Studies show that shopping for workout gear can motivate you to keep running towards your goals. The 2012 study used the term “enclothed cognition” to describe our mental changes when we wear particular clothing.

I have learned this week that things don’t always go according to plan. I also learned that this is okay and sometimes we just have to enjoy life. I was not able to run on Monday, and Tuesday I was out sick, so I was dying to finally get out of work yesterday and enjoy

Yesterday’s workout made be feel so strong. This made me think about what makes us weak. After work last night, I hit the gym working out primarily my triceps, a little bicep action, and lower abs. To be honest, I wasn’t that thrilled about running on the treadmill, but stretched and started my sweat sess.
Today might just be a runner’s favorite holiday—National Running Day! While die hard runners do not need a day to give life to their running spirit, having a day dedicated to running allows runners to appreciate the sport. Not to mention the motivation runners will have to day to lace up and enjoy their favorite
