I Ran Again

I haven’t run in nearly 7 1/2 months and I actually did it yesterday.  And that was a big step for me.

My Adidas Walking Shoes and Comfy Neon Socks

Going to need a new pair of good running shoes.

I had been working on my own version of a walk/run C25K last summer before I broke my ankle in 3 places on August 15th.  It has been a very slow and arduous journey back to walking, and I still have times when the pain and swelling flares up and I limp.

But I started back to the gym about 2 weeks ago, and have been working out at home

using my Beachbody ChaLEAN Extreme program, and just felt ready last night to try a brief run.  And I do mean brief.  I think it lasted about 15 seconds and I did it twice.  I just wanted to celebrate once it was accomplished.  No balloons fell from the ceiling of the gym and I probably looked like a dork with the big grin on my face, but I didn’t care.  I had just run.

Running had been a goal I set for myself to complete before the end of March and I did it.  Fear of the pain, or perhaps falling down, had prevented me from trying sooner.  But now it seems that conquering that fear has lit a new spark in me, and I plan on creating a new C25K program to start April 1.

Studying to be a health coach through IIN has changed me from the inside out, and I’m liking the positive changes.  Hoping there are more to come soon!

Nurture Change Health Coaching

I have finally created my Facebook page for my health coaching business through Integrative Nutrition.  I had created it back in November but never activated it until today.  I guess I was just scared of it going live, and I have no idea why because it was quite easy to publish it.  Just hit the button!

This is the picture I chose to use on the Facebook page since I love it so much.  It is of the Scituate Reservoir taken during Columbus Day Weekend at the Scituate Art Festival.  Just a nice picture overall.

Please stop by to visit my page if you’re interested.  I’d appreciate any likes and comments, but it’s still a baby and a work in progress.  https://www.facebook.com/NurtureChange

My business is called Nurture Change Health Coaching and I will put up links when I have the actual business site up and running.  That too is a work in progress!
