Some pictures from tonight’s dinner: a 10 banana smoothie…the remains, and some greens!
Picked up some great produce today, including a bunch of Iranian dates, that should keep me going for a while. http://youtu.be/h0z4qijkA-Q
Each day: Get up. Drink some water. Eat a bit of fruit. Go for a trail run/hike/bike ride. Drink some more water. Eat a bunch of fruit. Drink a bit more water. Eat some more fruit. Eat a bunch of veggies. Drink some more water. Go to bed early. Get up, and do it all again. Live the life.
Surround yourself with those you love and who love you. Do activities you enjoy. Seek to challenge yourself. Embrace diversity. Read a good book. Create art. Be part of a community. Give back. Have compassion. Smile. Revel in the beauty the world has to offer. Stop and smell the flowers. Breathe deeply. Be authentic and true to yourself. Get out in nature. Paddle a kayak. Ride a bike. Run on the trails. Hike mountains. Seek adventure. Enjoy the journey. Make your dreams a reality. Look at the world each day as if you’re seeing it for the first time. Bring your own uniqueness to the world. Live with passion. And most importantly, be YOU.
Running on the Spot
A simple, yet effective exercise for raising your heart rate, getting your blood pumping, and getting oxygen to your brain. Running on the spot is something you can incorporate into your daily routine to keep your energy up, or you can do some light running on the spot early in the morning to get your body moving before you do your stretches.
Be sure to keep your core tight as this can be a good core strengthening exercise as well. And you can always rotate between focusing on getting your knees up and kicking your heels to your butt.
