Thank you for the feedback I received from Monday’s post. It’s always great to receive awesome feedback from a post I’ve written. It’s true. You never know what will strike a cord with people. Obviously it struck a cord with many of you as it did with me.
This is going to be short and sweet post. It’s much too long for a Twitter or Facebook update, but it’s been on my mind lately…
Something I’ve recently taken note of is the amount of people that have the word “inspiring” in self-written bios on social media sites. Whether it says, “Inspirational runner…” or “Former fat body turned runner, inspiring others to get off of their butt…” What throws me off is when someone calls them self inspirational. Are they inspiring others? I’m sure they are. But in my opinion it’s not something that can be self-proclaimed.
It’s kind of like a Christian saying, “I’m a good Christian.” As the saying goes, actions speak louder than words. If one is truly what they are then no further qualification is needed.
Is running your thing? Then run. Whether you run to for fun, competition, weight loss, or whatever it may be….just run. It goes back to what I’ve written about before….Whatever it is, if you do it genuinely, then there’s no need for “ulterior” motives. Just do what you do, things will fall into place, and you may just end up naturally inspiring others. But let them decide…not you.
When I first started running I had the all or nothing mentality. More often than not I was in the “all” boat. No matter what, I was out running. In other words, no excuses. The same could be said about my diet at the time. As time moves on I’ve learned more about life and more about myself. What it comes down to is that there is a time and a place for “no excuses”. But if I live my life day in and day out with that mentality I’m really setting myself up for failure.
For instance, I’ve learned to listen to my body and accept that there will be a day or 2 during the month where I will have uncontrollable female cramping issues. I recently read a post about how women should push through this and not use it as an excuse. For several years I took this advice to heart and attempted to push through, only to be met with disastrous results. Then one day I asked myself, “Why am I doing this to myself?” Call me crazy, but not being able to run because of cramps that cause me to double over and have bodily fluids coming out of both ends of my body is not an excuse. Needless to say, I’ve learned to understand when it’s appropriate to push through discomfort and when it’s time to dial back. Not only with this, but my body in general.
While “failure” may be immediate, more often than not it won’t be experienced in the short term, but in the long-term. Of course this could mean physically. For example, continually pushing your body resulting in a nagging injury. That goes back to the idea of when, how intense, and how long to push yourself. Another aspect to consider is mental pressure. A big reason I run (and why many others do too) is for “therapy”. Unfortunately at times I’ve allowed my therapy to become the cause of my anxiety. Vicious cycle, eh?
Those are both very important. But what’s even more important to me? Understanding that while I run, my life isn’t all about running. Or while I hike, my life isn’t all about hiking. And so on. I love it all but my life is so much more and I can’t let one single thing or activity consume me physically and mentally. If I choose to block out the rest of my life, relationships, needs, or obligations, then that’s the biggest failure.
As I got ready for my run this morning I saw the look in Viking’s eyes just begging to be taken for a hike. It’s been months since he’s been on the trails due to heat and rattlesnakes. He must sense the coolness in the air because any other day he wouldn’t bat an eye at me preparing to head out. After seeing him I was torn. I wanted to run but I wanted to give him the opportunity to hike. I couldn’t do both but I could do one. That’s when #wycwyc came to mind.
A couple weeks ago Carla AKA MizFit, a fellow blogger I admire, brought #wycwyc to my attention. It means: what you can, when you can. (Come to find out it was her friend Roni who came up with the concept). Dealing with my injury and changes over the past year it really struck a cord. It’s no surprise that ever since I saw the hashtag it’s been in the forefront of my mind.
There’s simply no way I could deny Viking the chance to go for a hike today simply because I wanted to fit in a run. Sad as it sounds, at the age of 11 I know Viking’s years with us are limited and who knows how much longer he’ll be able to truck through a hike. So while I didn’t get a run in I was still active and got to spend time with my boy. #wycwyc.
It also comes to mind during my lunch time runs. Due to my limited time I can’t knock out big mileage, but I can still get in 2.5 miles or so. Or when I do have time but cannot run the entire distance due to my nagging (but healing) injury. #wycwyc.
To me #wycwyc isn’t about killing yourself to fit it all in. It’s also not an excuse. It’s respecting yourself. It’s respecting your life. It’s respecting your relationships. To me that’s the most important of all.

From a high of 270 lbs to a low of 165 lbs for him and a high of 140 lbs to a low of 115 lbs for me it’s safe to say our bodies have been all over the place. We both ballooned after his time in the Marine Corps, got our act together, lost the weight (and then some)….
While diet was very important DH has found that when he starts running the weight just falls off. (Yeah, he’s “that guy” that women love to hate.) Unfortunately, his fibromyalgia and other ailments/injuries stemming from his time in service have become significantly worse over the past few years basically sidelining him from all running activity. He has been on multiple medications only to find that they may initially help but lose effectiveness soon after or he has a bad reaction. We’ve tried every “diet” under the sun to see if it’d help. Nope. Every so often he’d try running, make it a few days, but find that his body screams at him, making him stop.
Without running his weight has slowly crept up. Nothing close to his high weight in the past but it keeps going a smidge higher and higher. I am no where near chastising him. He’s not alone. Mine has too. While losing weight was already on our radar he had something hit him smack dab in the face. His band. Whether we like it or not, let’s face it, image sells. And as Corvus prepares to pitch themselves to a record label they have already been told, “You all need to lose some weight.” While the facts were already there, nothing like a little motivation, right?
Over the past couple weeks DH has eased his way back to running and we’re both paying more attention to our food intake too. I think DH will admit that it’s been much tougher to get back into the swing of things this time around. (Yeah, he also has a history of being “that guy” that doesn’t really have to train and can lay down mileage just like that.) Why has it been harder? Because his fibromyalgia hasn’t lessened. However, he’s come to the conclusion that because it’s lifelong problem, if he wants to lose weight and be active, he will have to deal with it. To say that it will be hard is a serious understatement.
Thankfully I was able to convince him he needed new running shoes. Hey, he’s already got enough cards stacked against him, he at least needs some decent go fasters. It only took me 3 weeks and winning a gift card from Road Runner Sports Birthday Giveaway (Have you entered yet? I had no expectations of winning and BAM! I won.) to get him to give in. Compromise and true love. I wouldn’t give my gift card to just anyone So this weekend we made a stop at Road Runner Sports Tempe and he got to have his own Shoe Dog experience like I got a couple months ago.
Most any runner will admit that the first steps are the hardest….and DH is living that right now. Chances of him running in races is pretty slim to none. It wasn’t his thing in the past so I highly doubt much will change, but I’m proud of him for getting back to it. Here’s to healthier bodies and a becoming a lean, mean, running machine….and the image that the record labels are looking for.

I recently read an online article that got me thinking. I don’t have a link to the article since I happened upon it in my Facebook feed over a week ago. From what I could gather it was written for a fitness magazine site, which focused on bodybuilding. In a nutshell, the writer addressed the recent “movement” of women posting photos of themselves and saying, “This is a real woman.” Supposedly these photos are of women that aren’t “fit” and most often taken after having babies, and of women that are more than likely in their 30s or older. The writer takes a jab at this movement and those women saying, “So are fit/built women not real?!”
The article keeps entering my mind and I can’t help but think about it.
First things first. Who are the real women? Fit, au naturale, built, thin, curvy? WE ALL ARE! I could stop there but no, I can’t. I’ve got more.
Oftentimes I think fit women don’t get “it”. They say, “Just do it!” when it comes to working out and eating right. Chances are that many of these women that say and act this way are in the early stages of their fitness journey (1-3 years). What many are so quick to forget is where they started from. My guess is a good 75% of fit people weren’t so fit in their previous life. Whether overweight or simply out of shape we all have had to start somewhere. After a couple months into their journey, when they start seeing results, it’s as though they have this born again Christian mindset, preaching the gospel of fitness. I see it over and over again. Heck, I was guilty of it myself! I see this often in healthy eating as well. People go organic or vegan and start sharing all of these articles on GMOs or animal cruelty. Yep, it’s been that way for years…but welcome to the party! Be proud of yourself, but come on ladies, don’t drink your own kool-aid.
Simply put, fit doesn’t mean healthy. I see people that look amazing, but this doesn’t necessarily mean they are healthy. I’m not saying that fit people aren’t healthy. There are many that are, but once again, I’m speaking from my own experience. If you think you’re really healthy I urge you to look long and hard at your lifestyle. The biggest question I ask myself, “Is this sustainable? Can I do this long-term, have the same results, and also perform optimally (not just athletically but in day-to-day life functions)?”
Which leads me to my next point. Maintaining a fitness program and healthy eating is simple, and for the most part, pretty easy, but it does require persistence. With that being said, it’s realistic to want/have indulgences or not want to workout. It’s also normal to have periods of time where you just suck at it all. Be real with yourself and keep it real with others.
It’s important to realize that we’re all on our own journeys. We have different goals, motivation, and ability (physically and financially). Supplements vs no supplements. Paleo vs vegan vs whatever else there is. No one’s experience is the exact same as another’s and we’re all on different paths and parts of the journey. Just roll with it.
I’m not saying that women who settle with the current state of their body are right. But maybe it’s right for them right now. I’m at a totally different place, both physically and mentally, than I was 6 years ago…or even 3 years ago. I may not be as thin as I was after dropping weight but I am healthier and happier than I was.
Personally I’d probably never post a photo of my abs (or lack thereof) no matter what the state of my body condition. But it’s not right to chastise women for posting photos of themselves, no matter what shape they’re in. Maybe it’s their way to feel empowered. Maybe it’s their way to provide motivation to themselves. No matter what the reasoning, deal with it. If it bothers you, unfollow or look the other way. Otherwise uplift them and root them on, because when we uplift each other we all rise to the top.

I’m sure it’s pretty obvious from my posts, tweets, and photos that I’m still running and practicing yoga. Am I training for anything special? Nope. I still get up at 4:30a everyday to get a workout in, but it’s because it’s a commitment to myself. I can hear the comments now. ”Wait, you’re running just to run?” Yep.
Ever since I started running in 2007 I’ve never felt that I had to have a race to train for in order to push me out the door on a daily basis to get my runs in. Staying true to my promise, I haven’t signed up for a race and have no plans to do so in the near future. That’s not to say that I’ll never sign up for a race ever again, it just means right now I’m just simply enjoying my runs just to run. I still wear my Garmin but rarely use it and only wear it since my ID is attached. And I have absolutely no idea when the last time I signed into Daily Mile to log a workout.
Want to know what I’ve found? I actually enjoy running more. Other than my obligation to myself I have nothing hanging over my head. If I miss a run or feel like mixing it up for the day, it’s not the end of the world. What’s even more crazy is that I’m probably working out more than I ever have since most days I generally have two workout sessions. Don’t freak out. In no way am I wearing myself into the ground. In the past my job called for me to be on my feet anywhere from 8-12 hours, often at a high intensity pace. Now that I have a desk job I feel so stagnant during the day, hence why I’m all for the two-a-days. (I hesitate to call yoga a “workout”. Oftentimes it is, but that’s not the point to my practice)
Either way, this is basically what my weekly workout schedule looks like….
Mondays – Morning yoga at home (30 min), lunchtime Total Body class at work (30 min)
Tuesdays -Morning run (usually a simple 3 miler), lunchtime yoga class at work (45 min)
Wednesdays - Morning yoga at home (30 min), lunchtime Zumba class at work (30 min)
Thursdays -Morning run (usually a simple 3 miler), lunchtime yoga class at work (45 min)
Fridays – Rest
Saturday/Sunday – Hike or Run each day
I’m nowhere near burnt out like I have been in the past and I just roll with it when an opportunity like practicing yoga poolside with some of fave Cholla Chicks happens.
I seriously lack the ability to find a happy medium in almost all aspects of my life. Most often you’ll find me going balls to wall in a certain direction. It should come as no surprise then that I’ve never been able to master cross-training. In no way am I saying I’ve mastered it (far from it) but for once I can actually say I’m getting better at it…when I’m not even trying! Now, if I could only implement some strength training in there….that’s a whole different post….
The most awesome thing about this isn’t necessarily where I am physically (although that’s not half bad either), but where I am mentally. I love that I’m back to digging my workouts, am actually enjoying them (say what?!), and for once am accepting and embracing the flexibility of my schedule. All because I don’t have to workout. I get to.

Over the past year I’ve added a few pieces of fit gear here and there. Some of it I won from giveaways while others were to review. The majority of it has been yoga based. As I looked through my running clothes I realized it had been awhile since I had updated. Some items no longer fit (yep, gained some weight) while others just look sad and mangy. Like my fashion (or lack thereof) when I get set on something I like I buy in multiples and have some favorites. When it comes to fit gear right support and fit are deal breakers. As I took to the stores looking to replenish and update my gear I quickly realized it may be harder than I expect. Let me do some explaining…
I’ll start with the easier problem, shorts. For shorter runs I’m a Nike Tempo short wearer. Anything longer than that I wear Road Runner Sports compression shorts to reduce thigh chafing. I’m leaning towards shorter runs these days so I’m wearing my Tempos more. These are one of the items that have gotten tighter. I figured I’d just go up a size but going up a size made me feel like I was wearing a diaper. I need an in-between size. So…..I guess I need to search out a new go-to short.
As for tanks, this is where things get a bit more complicated. If the subject of bras and boobs isn’t your thing, stop here. A little TMI but I’m honestly reaching out for help….
Keeping it real, my boobs can cause some major issues when it comes to running. This is actually one of the things that kept me from attempting to run for so many years. Due to fibrosis it’s imperative that those suckers don’t move an inch. Thankfully after some researching and real-life testing I found some bras that worked.
I love Nike Pro Bras. Unfortunately for me they don’t provide enough support when it comes to wearing looser t-shirt tops or tanks without shelf bras. That’s where my Moving Comfort bra comes into play. It works perfectly for t-shirts but a no go for tanks without shelf bras as I have the overflow side boob chafing action. Not cool.
To break it down:
Tank with shelf bra = Nike Pro Bra
T-shirt = Moving Comfort Bra
Tank without shelf bra = ??
So you may think, “What’s the big deal? Just wear t-shirts or find tanks with shelf bras and avoid tanks without shelf bras.” If it were only that easy. It seems that the concept of tanks with functional shelf bras aren’t the thing anymore. Sure, some have them but they don’t help one bit. The tanks that I do find seem to fit me looser in the chest and tight around the waist. As I already stated, although I consider myself pretty busty, I have a larger cup size but am smaller around. Add that to my curvy hips. I’m the exact opposite fit for the tanks. Are my proportion sizes wacky compared to normal people?
I’ve scoured Dick’s Sporting Goods, TJMaxx, Target, Road Runner Sports, Old Navy, Nike, Reebok, Under Armor and haven’t walked away with anything that works. So this is my cry for help. Do you have any of the same problems? If so, do you have any “favorites” that I need to check out? Or, if you’re a brand that specializes in fit gear, help a sister out. I would LOVE to see tanks with snug chest areas with longish, looser waists. I can picture them in my head….Trust me when I say, my working out depends on this. That or I’ll have to keep running in my old stinky gear.

You know, I could actually plan out my blog posts, like I used to…something like every Friday write my “grateful” posts. But that never felt right and let’s be honest, that sort of planning actually works against my whole “Be Here Now” plan. I’m over it. I’m going to write what I want to write, when I want to write. For those that are regular readers I’m sure you’ve already picked up on this transition since I used to post Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, which is no longer happening.
Although I’ve always had control over my blog, (hello, I write it.) taking this thought and actually living it has felt empowering. I also have to say that my blogging voice is coming through much easier . My posts may not flow all that well (not that they ever did), but lately I’ve found that when I sit down to type there’s a much easier flow from my brains thoughts to keyboard.
So, with all that being said, it’s been several weeks since I’ve posted about things that I am grateful for I figured it’s time to share.
Mobile banking. Since we have direct deposit that last time we stopped at our bank was months ago. Direct deposit is awesome given that we bank with a credit union and there aren’t locations on every street corner. I recently received a check in the mail to be deposited but kept putting off depositing it because it wasn’t convenient to make my way over to our bank. However, I just happened to check if they offered mobile deposits, like Bank of America shows in their commercials, and sure enough they do! I simply downloaded the app, took a few photos, submitted, and within 24 hours the deposit was accepted. Now, I gotta admit, the whole thought is a bit scary but given that it’s not something I’d be doing regularly it’s a rad option to have.
Swanson Vitamins. After mobile banking and now reading this next one you may think I’m lazy. I swear, I’m not. It’s all about convenience! Coming from a small town I often had to order vegan products to avoid making hour-long trips to Whole Foods and such. Living in Phoenix has made things a lot easier, but heading to the store or mall drives me bonkers (can you believe D loves shopping way more than me?). So from clothes, food, and other odds and ends, I’m all about online shopping. The friendly folks at Swanson Vitamins contacted me and asked to see if I’d like to check out their products and services. Free goodies for trying them out? Why not? I must admit I was pretty blown away not only by the prices (the vitamins I normally order on Amazon are actually cheaper from Swanson) but they have so much more than just vitamins. I was thrilled I could purchase so many of the things I regularly use all from one source.
I also decided to order some Justin’s Nut Butter, which I had never tried. That may or may not have been a good idea. I’ll let you decide.
Running mojo. After several months off of running it may be back. I attribute this to listening to my body, taking a break from my daily runs, and adding in yoga. As you know over the past several weeks I’ve added in Zumba and Total Body classes to the mix. I have slowly pieced together all of this cross-training and am back to working out on a daily basis. I am no longer running everyday (like I used to), but I still workout everyday, with the exception of rest days, and still manage to practice yoga. It feels good and more importantly I’m having fun.
Amande Yogurt. I was never a big fan of yogurt prior to going vegan so it wasn’t something I missed. Several months ago I just so happened to see yogurt at Sprouts Farm Market that was made of almond milk. I was intrigued and grabbed the the coconut flavor. Delicious! I have since tried their other flavors, which are tasty as well, but coconut wins hands down. Unfortunately the closest Sprouts doesn’t carry the coconut flavor nor do they carry the large containers (hence, why David went on the hunt). I have since found the flavor and size at Whole Foods, but it takes a bit of a drive, so I stock up whenever I’m in the area.
Grateful Jar. Speaking of gratefuls. Just like many people we chose to start a Grateful Jar at the beginning of the year. Although I’m not great at putting something in each day I usually make up for it the rest of the days and the jar is slowly filling up. I look forward to reading them at the end of the year. Should be fun!

After several months of debating whether to join the gym at work I finally did it. Other than when I joined the YMCA for the sole purpose of having a place to swim laps, I have never joined the gym. With just 3 days into my membership I’m pretty stoked at what it all has to offer. At only $19 (yes, you read that right, $19) a month it’s a steal. Quite frankly it’s pretty small but it has all the right things that are needed including a locker room with all the amenities as well.
So far I have only used the gym during my lunch hour and have yet to use any of the machines, but it doesn’t seem overly busy as well. I’m sure over time I’ll get a feel for things, but if I want to run and am unable to secure a treadmill at lunchtime I can always head to work early to get in my workout before starting my workday. I usually read during my lunch hour, which I truly do enjoy, but with my new job being more sedentary than I’m used to it’s nice to get up and moving in the middle of the day.
So if I haven’t used the machines what have I been doing at the gym? Classes! Fact: prior to this week I have never joined in a group workout class….ever. I’m a solo athlete. Even when it comes to my runs I tend to head out on my own. But with classes included in my membership fee, I couldn’t pass that up.
The first day I joined in the Total Body workout. Basically it was 40 minutes of HIIT type workout. It was rough but I’m proud to say that I decently held my own. I didn’t make a total fool of myself either. I’ll definitely do it again.
The second day I tried out a yoga session. I’ve been practicing yoga since December. I’ve even been to The Sedona Yoga Festival and Yoga Rocks The Park, but never a real class per se. One where they’ll make adjustments and all. After the session I introduced myself to the instructor and gave her a bit of my history. She provided an ego boost when she said she was impressed how solid my basics were. High five! The only “downside” to the yoga classes is there is an extra charge, but at under $4 a class that’s not an issue. The biggest reasons I haven’t been able to venture into classes was due to money and my schedule. This is absolutely perfect!
From my trip to Sedona a couple weekends ago
Today I debated on whether to head back to another Total Body session or try out Zumba….I went for the Zumba! I love to dance and people rave about Zumba, so I just had to give it a shot. Another winning class! My moves may not be as smooth as I’d like but I’ve got rhythm a solid dancing background (from many moons ago), and a passion for dance, so you bet your butt I busted a move and had a blast.
There are even more choices when it comes to the class options…cycling, cardio mix, muscle conditioning. I love it! After being in such a running rut I turned to yoga but missed the cardio high. Running will always have a place among my workouts but just like everything else in my life, fitness should be about fun, trying new things, and adventure.

There once was a time when I didn’t care if I hurt my body while exercising. I just figured somehow my body would bounce back. Yes, I’ve gone down that road of pushing, pushing, pushing only to realize I was doing more harm than good. For instance, as I increased in mileage I found inflammation and pain in my bad knee. Then one day I thought, “WTF are you doing Heidi?” There was nothing that triggered this thought per se, it just happened….thankfully before I had done permanent damage.
This is what I believe: Fitness and physical activity should be challenging. There are times it should leave us tired and sore. Trust me when I say that allowing myself to fall deeper in an asana is not easy nor is it comfortable. However, barring the freak accident, fitness shouldn’t cause us pain, agony, or compromise our health and well-being. Yes, Exercise should make us push our limits, but not our breaking points.
As I scroll through my social media feeds so often I see fellow friends/athletes that are sharing their fitness injuries through photos. Torn hands from cross fit. Busted up runner’s knees being iced with peas. Bodies taped to the limit. I cringe at the sight of these photos. I don’t cringe because I feel their pain but at the thought of people voluntarily hurting their body.
Seeing these photos makes me realize that I’m in the minority when it comes to my beliefs. Then again, maybe people don’t really realize what they’re doing to their bodies? Or maybe they think it’s “proof” that they’re a bad ass? Or is it a one-upping type of thing? This all in turn begs the question, if instagram/social media didn’t exist would people be doing this to their bodies? Don’t get me wrong a little healthy competition or seeing other people out there pushing themselves may encourage others to get out there and move. It it can also have the opposite effect as well.
I’m no super athlete nor do I make a living off of my physical activities, which is the case for the majority of my friends. No doubt, the pros are out there pushing themselves, but most are in tune to their bodies more than the average Joe and are also in a different realm of physical capacity than most of us, right?
As always, the point of this isn’t to criticize anyone but more to share my recent thoughts and provide some food for thought. Physical activity/exercise is a commitment I’ve made to myself, but so is my health and well-being. From physical activity, to what food I eat, or even my everyday actions and choices, nowadays I ask myself, “Will this help me or hurt me?” and it makes my decisions much easier.

There are only a couple days left to enter my Road Runner Sports Giveaway. Don’t forget to enter!
It’s no secret that since moving to Phoenix I have fallen in love with Road Runner Sports. From the Adventure Runs to their other fun in-store events what’s not to love? Their fitness apparel is pretty darn cool as well and I’ve found it to performed amazingly well. However, they just upped the ante. With the help of the Road Runner Sports Tempe store I was able to grab a quick sneak peak of some of the newly released or soon-to-be released items. Wow! Bright colors and versatility are the two things that stuck out to me.
For me, the brighter the better so I’m in love with all of the colors.
I’ve also taken note of a few differences in the overall style of the clothing. Dare I say it’s more LuluLemon-esque? Which leads me to my next point. What I mean when it comes to versatility is the ability to transition from sweat to street with ease. Sure, the clothing is still active wear, but not all of it screams, “I’m a runner!” It can be easily worn for other active lifestyles….or in my case, even work.
Case in point. I have fallen utterly in love with my Out & About Cardi. I wear it a minimum of once a week and most often I wear it to work…in a business setting. Not only can I wear it to work but it can be worn 50 million (ok not really that many) ways. In all seriousness, it can be worn in more ways than you can imagine.
Having already connected with Road Runner Sports they reached out to me to see if I’d be interested in doing a giveaway. After consulting my own personal standards on holding giveaways, I think it fits perfectly, so let’s do this!
What’s up for grabs? This entire outfit below! Men, yes you can enter for the ladies in your life as well. Even better? Send them to this post to enter as well.
To sweeten the deal Road Runner has also included my absolute fave piece in the giveaway….
Yes, the Out & About Cardi! – dog not included
