Okay…I’m not gonna lie.
I feel like a bit of a healthy living blogger failure.
I have been seriously, seriously lacking in motivation lately, both when it comes to working out and eating healthy.
I think that being so busy and stressed out has really taken a toll on my energy levels and desire to workout. It could have something to do with the change of seasons too, because all I want lately is comfort food.
The other night, after I got home from an all day recruiting event, I stood in front of the pantry with no creative inspiration or desire to cook. So instead, I rented some movies and decided to go for some take out.
Nothing but good old barbecue sounded good to me, so I did it up big.
If that isn’t comfort food, I don’t know what is.
I definitely enjoy eating like this sometimes, and I think that it’s important to treat ourselves once in a while. I’m a firm believer in the fact that no one should deprive themself!
That being said, I really do feel better and look better when I am more committed to healthy eating and exercising. I think that life calming down a little should help (recruiting is finally over, thank God!) and hopefully I have will more energy to workout.
So to kick off a week of sticking closer to my exercise routine, I went on an awesome run. And as I was running toward the beautiful Rocky Mountains, it occurred to me that I have never showed you guys where I fell in love with running!
So I’m going to take you on a virtual run with me. Ready? :)
I am so spoiled by this gorgeous scenery.
And this awesome 5.5 mile run (I decided to turn to the right :) ) gave me the energy and motivation I needed to be a healthy college girl this week.
Tell me about your favorite run/workout spot!
Is anyone else craving comfort food this time of year?! (ALL I WANT IS PUMPKIN BREAD AND COOKIES!!!)
Love you guys! xoxo
