Pizza is always appropriate.Posted: July 20, 2010
I love that you guys are embracing being fearless. Life is too short to spend in a comfort zone.
While I’m all about being fearless, I’m not advocating being reckless. There is such a thing as healthy fear and a mild apprehension, and I firmly believe it serves a major purpose in letting us know when we are really challenging ourselves.
It’s okay to admit that something is scary. Not everyone is born adrenaline junkie, and that’s perfect! Similarly, not everyone has the time, money, or resources to go on a full-blown adventure every weekend. It’s all about looking for the little areas in your everyday life to stand up and show yourself what you’re made of.
What would you do if you knew you could not fail?
My coworkers all ordered lunch from a grease-laden Italian restaurant up the street. I couldn’t get in the mood for their meal, but for dinner, I was definitely in the mood for Italian food! (Heck, when am I not in the mood for Italian?)
I pulled together a vegan pizza on a pre-made Publix Greenwise whole wheat pizza crust. This baby had pan-seared eggplant, zucchini, kalamata olives, spinach, and lotsa fresh GAHLIC!
I definitely dominated three big-azz slices of this post-workout.
My runs have been incredibly draggy lately. I’m extremely affected by the humidity. When I hit the treadmill a month ago at the hotel in D.C., I knocked out a 5-miler in 37 minutes, but now I’m struggling to break 30 minutes for a 5k. While I know that treadmill runs are a lot easier than real pavement, I still feel like I’m not able to really work out to the best of my abilities.
I’ve been dropping hints to my family that I’d really like a gym membership for my birthday. My Gold’s has a membership for $20/month, which I think I could swing even if it’s not one of my presents on Sunday. I’m incredibly excited to join a gym and get out of this miserable heat!
I’ll see you tomorrow AM!
