I have had a sinus headache for 2 days. Gotta love Fall in Northern Virginia I tell ya.  I decided that even though I didn’t feel like going for a run this morning, that I would force myself to go and maybe it would help my headache. You know what? During the run — I had no headache.  At home post run — it came back although not as strong.  I ended up doing about 3 miles total. I have to get used to running in the crisper, colder air.  It’s definitely a different type of running for someone with asthma.

Still doing great on my new approach to eating aka Paleo. I have added a square of 82% dark chocolate because I have a sweet tooth and have been craving it like nobody’s business. The Dark Chocolate seems to satisfy that and because its over the 70%, its benefits are still there. Let’s see how the scale plays out tomorrow. My mid section is certainly more toned and I feel stronger overall. Just look at the pictures I posted this week. Nutrition plays a HUGE and Primary part in staying healthy and in shape. I have often thought that as hard as I work at my workouts — there has to be some part of the puzzle I am missing. I took all the necessary steps to get my body in shape and still felt all lumpy in my mid section – not the sleek, toned abs that I should have. I knew I had strong abs but a layer of fat stood in the way of seeing them. I am telling you — it takes time, patience, commitment and passion to make a change like this. But, it doesn’t have to happen overnight! Take it in steps and move on to the next step when it feels right to you —
