It's raining, it's pouring

This is what it looks like outside today . . .

So I'll be doing this for my workout today :( I really love running outside. At least I have the option to do it most of the time. A day here or there on the treadmill isn't too bad I guess. Working on Week 3 of 8 Weeks to a 10K!!

Off I go!

It has definitely been a while!

So I may start blogging again, but I'm not entirely sure. There's not much to blog about with just Ryan and I. He works a lot, weekends and all, and even though I only work part time, we live with family so I kind of take care of things like cooking and cleaning all the time. Unfortunately, we don't do many of the exciting things that we were looking forward to doing when we found out we were moving back to the Bay Area. It's hard to find balance when you're not always on your own time.

However, I have been putting a lot of time and effort in to improving my health, and hopefully the health of my husband (when he gives in to my demands!) and that of the family I am living with as well. I won't get in to the main reason for why I am trying to drastically improve my health, but if you know me well enough, you know why. When things start to get exciting and start happening, maybe then I'll reveal my reasons.

Okay, so what have I been doing? Nothing crazy, but I got a Blendtec and I make green smoothies every morning, and have been for the last 4 months or so. Yes, every morning, and I make 5 of them! I have also been eating a lot more "nutritarian" like, which means eating lots of nutrient dense foods. So, no processed food, tons of veggies and fruit, and I'm also trying to eat gluten, dairy, and soy free. Dairy is easy, gluten is sneaky and is in everything! I also get a foot zone a few times a month. I believe the correct term is Foot Zone Balancing. Anyway, it's similar to reflexology and what it is helping me to do is realign my body and all it's inner workings back to it's perfect state, the way it's supposed to be before life and environmental factors get in there and mess it up. Of course, there really is no "perfect" state, but I can try to get close!

Well, we'll see if I do more blogging or not. There are so many aspects of it that I know nothing about, all the technical buttons, lists, blogrolls, fancy little things on the side, etc. And it's also very time consuming, which I don't like because time is one of the most valuable commodities we have, and the way we use it is a deep reflection of who we are. I would rather use my time to better myself and my family. But maybe by cataloging what I'm actually doing to better myself is a good thing too :)
