This weekend we decided to run our virtual 5k that we signed up for a few weeks ago. It was amazing! We picked a day, coordinated our start time, and checked in with silly photos along the way. I would have loved to do an actual 5k together but this was a nice consolation. It felt great to get out and run again. We can’t wait for the next one! Any suggestions on one to sign up for next?
This post comes to you from my very empty, covered, community pool. It’s crazy to think how drastically life has changed in the last 3 months. This has been a hard time for everyone. It is especially difficult for those of us with anxiety. It took me at least 20 minutes to muster up the courage to come sit outside (and no one is even out here). It took fifteen minutes of getting over what will people think and five minutes of stressing over what I’d wear out there (if I’m being realistic more like 10 mins).
With so much uncertainty going on around me, my anxiety is at an all time high. I’ve come up with my own ways to manage it over the years but all my normal tricks aren’t covering it. I’ve been exercising like crazy and trying not to eat my feelings (key word trying). I signed up for a virtual race to keep me focused and set on a goal! But I need more. I’ve been trying to come up with what else to do. What have others been doing?

How nice it has been to have three days off of work this week. Spending the extra time at home and playing with my pup has really brightened my spirit. The past couple days off I have been doing beach body workouts. It has sucked that the gyms are closed. Fortunately, I am blessed with options to do workouts at home with minimal weights or equipment. This morning I did a cardio workout (I do this one a little too much). Cardio has always given me the best release and fulfillment from my workouts. This workout challenged me with burpees and planks and continues to challenge me every time I do it. I am hoping to get stronger and better every day. What workout moves do you struggle with and want to improve at?
