What I learned today: I can keep my cool when Usher walks by and says hello…

Can an eight year old inspire? I like to think so. This young lady was standing on Boylston street one year ago. She spent numerous weeks in the hospital and Spaulding rehab recovering and learning to walk again.
Look at that smile.
“She’d nicknamed her amputated leg “Luvvy,” and was brave enough to wear a skirt on her first day. Later, Jane gave classmates a show-and-tell of her prosthesis, even explaining how she could paint the toenails, the Globe said.”
This girl rocks. I’ve been following her in the news since I learned of her story in those days and weeks afterwards.
She may have lost a leg…but she’s more confident and sure of herself…without a leg…at eight years old…than many of us are with two legs and who are much, much older. She’s awesome. She’s a survivor. She’s Boston Strong.

Today I enjoyed a beautiful spring night in a way that not everyone can. I laced up my shoes (and brace) and ran for my beloved city of Boston. We often take for granted the every day activities that we are able to do, but today especially I tried to be mindful of the life I am able to live and be grateful. Today and always: Boston Strong

I was planning on making Wednesday my rest day, but it got moved to today and I’m totally okay with that. I would be going to bed early of the moon wasn’t supposed to be so darn cool tonight. Up early to run some intervals&hills before work, and them come home to no more trouble zones. Tuesday, you sound pretty good to me.

I threw some spinach, iceberg lettuce, grilled chicken, strawberries, and craisins together and called this delicious concoction: dinner :) 

Today was a great day exercise wise. I did no more trouble zones, ran/sprinted/intervals/inclines, and day two of a challenge I’m doing with my sister and fellow intern. 

I forgotten how good it feels to run to run. No training. No certain mileage to hit. Just run. It’s a glorious thing. Today was a good day :)

These will probably last like two days. 🍓🍓 #strawbsessed

Work out one is complete. I did Jillian Michaels no more trouble zones, which is strength training. I am planning to get some cardio in today as well..hopefully in the form of running. I want to get some intervals and maybe hills conquered today. 

I go to Chicago in about a month to graduate, and I want to look better and more confident then I did when I left in December. I want to see those graduation pictures years from now and see a happy, healthy and confident girl there. My goal is to keep consistent work outs and eating for the next month.  One month to see what I can do when I really try and push for it. I’m ready! 

Dear self: I know it’s been a crazy week, but I need to see more out of you. You have a lot on your plate right now, but you still need to work on becoming a better you. You got this. Tomorrow starts a new day, and a new opportunity to strive for greatness. Let’s see what we can do to accomplish our goals. Tomorrow marks a new part of your journey..your journey where you make yourself a priority. Let’s make the rest of April, and the rest of your life, something you are proud of.

I just used the microwave for one of the first times since October. I’m at work, so I didn’t really have an option since the coffee I just bought was barely warm, but I am bummed that I had to use it. I just got really in to all the bad things that microwaves do to you/your food so I haven’t been using one for months. Now I am determined to make the rest of the day a healthful day to make up for it. No more toxins!
