What’s in the Water You’re Drinking?

www.wildnourishment.comThe easiest thing anyone can do to begin a healthier lifestyle is to DRINK MORE WATER! When I tell people that I usually get one of two answers: 1) I don’t drink water because I don’t like the way it tastes and 2) I drink bottled water and “vitamin” water when I can. Read more and find out why your water “tastes bad” and why you will find nothing but sugar “vitamins” in your bottled stuff.

C25K – Week 1/Day 3 Completed!

www.wildnourishment.comHoly crappola, I did it! Week one is now complete and I can’t begin to write how I actually feel. This morning I ran on my own and picked a gravel path near the local high school and forest preserve. It was beyond relaxing and extremely motivating!

Because I woke up this morning like I got hit by a Mack truck! No that’s incorrect. It is realistically more like the Mack truck rolled over me, backed up, and then rolled over me again. Keep reading if you want a delightful account of how I got through day 2.

C25K – Week 1/Day 1

www.wildnourishment.comFirst day of Couch to 5K training…and I don’t know what I was all worried about. As usual, I get myself into a tizzy over things that just aren’t tizzy worthy. That aside, it was an interesting first day of training and I was tested by Mother Nature in just how serious I was about doing this.

Encouragement is the Fuel on which Hope runs.

www.wildnourishment.comDid you ever dream of doing something you never did before but you just don’t get around to doing it? I have had a longing to do something that I was just to scared to start. Why? Because I’m out of shape. Yep, I’m putting it out there…I’ve lost over 100 lbs since December 2012 and I’m still fat and out of shape. What do I want to do? Run. I want to run a marathon. I literally cannot see that happening right now but I can see me running a 5K. Yep, I’m starting the C25K (Couch to 5K) program and I’m scared out of my wits.
