Baby Steps!!!!

Guess what I did tonight?!

…. I ran a mile! I am so thrilled over this little milestone! Since my back injury I have yet to run even a few feet, let alone a mile. I took it nice and slow, running it in little over 11 minutes. I can finally see some light to my injury and now I know I am starting to heal and feel like myself!

I hate to admit it but I haven’t worked but only a couple of times since my back injury. I’ve just been pretty bummed out about my back and just have not felt like doing anything. But when simple walking makes you reach for your Aspirin bottle, it’s a little hard to get pumped up about lacing your sneakers.

Of course I am still going to take it slow but this is a HUGE step in both my physical well being and my mental well being.

Unfortunately I had no appetite this evening but I was able to force myself to eat a bowl of vegetables with hummus. I have been craving cucumbers lately. I can easily eat a half of one in one sitting. Funny because I never used to care for cucumbers! It amazes me how much your taste buds change with time.



I also love my new bowl I picked up at the store tonight. Reminds me of spring =)

I’m exhausted and looking forward to my head hitting my pillow. Good night!

  1. Congrats on your mile run! I totally understand where you're coming from, and also how great you must feel! Don't over do it and listen to your body- I'm sure you know this already, but stick to only doing a mile for the first week back in, then only add distance each week.. and ICE and stretch! I never do and always pay for it! So excited for you running!

  2. Congrats on running the mile!!! I'm glad to read that you are starting to heal…I haven't ever had cucumbers with hummus before but it sounds like something I would loooove. And that bowl is adorable. 🙂

Share the love!
