The detox from social from Facebook and Snapchat. I however will keep IG for sharing my running journey and love of fitness. I was off FB for 2 months not realizing how much better I felt. My anxiety has increased with the use of FB lately to the point I am waking up wanting to throw up. FB has triggered other behaviors comparison, lust and having a higher rate of irritability. I am changing jobs and quite honestly it’s terrifying walking away from home to grow by choice has not helped the emotional rollercoaster. I am moving on changing my number cleaning out my contacts and am focusing on creating a new life. Fofrich that’s the name I take pride in, it starts with me and I wanna get in.
Nothing is better then the love of pets. Cute little noses and squinting eyes are absolutely adorable at all times even when messes are made. The companionship pets offer is second to none, pure unconditional love! If ever in my future I have a big yard I will fill it with doggies and kitties. 😊
Improving as a runner has always been a goal but over the last 5 months I have took some serious strides with only small tweaks. Incorporating circuit training has improved my overall athletic performance by strengthening muscles and heart rate training. I realized I can maintain a quicker pace due to having my heart being conditioned to sustain a elevated heart rate. Nutrition has been huge I eliminated all meat from my diet and switched over to a vegetarian plan. Pre run I eat the same thing two cliff bars while gulping a Kroger brand water. protein sources have been limited to lentos, nuts, eggs and beans. I buy the lentos at balance already cooked then mix with red potatoes or brown rice, it’s simple and cost friendly. Set a goal don’t stop until compete and then set another one the sky is the limit. One life remember that! Lip service means nothing throw it out the window and be what you dream about.
I have not wrote lately but I am back! Vulnerability is my key 🔑 to my overall health. I created this blog over two years ago only to delete everything I wrote over that last couple years. Took the past few months to center myself and focus on my releationship with Christ. Looking forward and truely excited about the future !
Often I see people who happily in relationships or talking etc and my first thing reaction is anger. I learned that feeling of frustration about seeing others happy is not their problem it’s only a me problem. Hate is never the answer to happiness only contentment is. Sometimes we have to realize that we have more control then we think and the things we desire for our life are more then obtainable.
Dave has said it for years, the Bible has said it for centuries! Anxiety increases when discomfort arises and we all know how financial hardships can cause stress and anxiety. The only way to win with money is to budget and stick to it like a workout regime, you can’t out earn sloppiness. Sacrifice generates something lIke nothing else.
Phone rings as the day is ending and sun has been long set, a voice that sounds so ashamed on the other line. I am tired but my heart speeds up hearing the hopelessness . Every day it’s the same struggle for someone and everyday I answer for what reason I don’t know. I wanna believe it’s God working through me and if so that’s enough. Sometimes what is taken for granite is often dreamt of by others, remember as I need to do as well ONE LIFE and YOU ARE ENOUGH as you are.
When I first started running I just moved my feet forward there was nothing to it, recently I found out the importance the strike. The strike what the heck is that I know right, it’s where your foot is located when first making contact to the ground. I finally was fitted for proper shoes and with proper footware it has made my running mechanics improve drastically with that said my times have not only improved but the intensity of my runs have increased. When I started this journey 3 years ago I would of never thought I could run a 7 minute mile maybe not even two months ago but that has changed with proper shoes
and proper striking.
