I love this quote, because it is very true. If I have to take off working out on a regular workout day I go nuts. My body craves the workout, and yours will too!
I started the New Year off with a 5K yesterday. It was my New Years Resolution Run hosted by For the Love of the Kids. I had to do my 5K at the gym on a treadmill since it was a wonderful 13 degrees out with crazy winds. My run started off great, my breathing was perfect, and everything felt great. Then, at 2 miles my right butt cheek cramped up on me, and to make things even more fun, a couple of seconds later my right boob started cramping (since my mastectomy, my chest muscles like to cramp up out of nowhere). I can only imagine how amazing I looked trying to nonchalantly massage out my cramps in my boob and butt. Thankfully there was less than a mile to go, so I slowly jogged to the imaginary finishline on my treadmill. It wasn’t the greatest run, but I loved starting out the year with one of my 13 in 2013 races and one of my 5 by the 5th races!
Guess what is back in season!?! Cara Cara oranges and Sugar Belles!! These are my favorite oranges, and they are beyond sweet. I have been eating at least 3 a day. They are just that good! I highly suggest you head down to your local grocery store and grab some today.
