My Healthy Day Check-In: Week 2
Ok, my friends. It is week 2. How is everyone feeling? I've been trying to drink a lot of water this week, as well as get moving early in the morning even when I want to stay in bed. Here's what I've been up to this week:
Blogilates arms challenge (I may have done a bunch of days one day when I got behind and kind of regretted it...)
WW 30 minute dance workout
25 minute neighborhood walk/run
Some of you may know that in the past, B.R. (Before Rory) I was a half-marathon runner. Well, my friends, that has not been a part of my life for quite some time now. I enjoy running, but haven't had the time to commit to training well for a race. I've thought about running another half, but it scares me. Enter the Chick-fil-A Half the Half Race. This is quite exciting, because I'll feel like I'm doing a big race but will only run half the distance! My friend Hannah and I will start training together for our 6.55 mile race soon, and we will run on April 1!
We ate a lot of leftovers this week. We had food that we hadn't used, so we decided to forgo a big grocery trip in hopes of saving money, and we did!
Crockpot Mexican Chicken Tacos
Hearty Vegetable Soup with Gnocchi from the She Reads Truth Advent book
Roasted Salmon with Squash
Baked Potatoes with leftover chicken
This week my NingXia Red arrived! NingXia is an amazing blend of super fruits that is amazing for overall wellness and is a great source of antioxidants. I have been taking some every morning and am super pumped to see how I feel after a month of use. :) I also received my FemiGen capsules and have been taking two each morning. This week I'm unfortunately on antibiotics, so I've felt a little out of whack. I've been using lemon on my chest and in my tea along with Thieves to help combat any infection and seasonal ickiness with all these crazy weather changes, and I've also been using my diffuser at work to clean the air and brighten my spirits. :)
How are you doing, friends? Have you taken any baby steps to wellness so far this year?
