Alright, Break Time's Over!

I just wrapped up my first run in about three weeks. Why the break? Well, after running the Lucky Laces 10k earlier this month, I had a little bit of plantar fascia irritation for about a week. Oh, and I got a cold. And there was a blizzard. And I wrecked my legs installing new floorboards in our house. And yadda-yadda-yadda...

I tend to get down on myself when setbacks occur. My self-esteem plummets and I get really angry with myself. At those times, my healthy eating habits tend to fly out the window, too.

Instead of beating ourselves up when things happen, let's instead try forgiving ourselves. "It's okay, buddy. Even the pros take breaks. When you're ready, get back out there and have some FUN!"

Man, wouldn't it be great? No more guilt. No more shame. No more regret.

The weather is great and I'm feeling healthy and happy. Let's do this! :-)

P.S. - The picture is from our neighbor's front yard. We've heard chainsaws all week and figured they were just cutting down the dead trees. Turns out...they're making BEARS! Hell yeah!
