Getting Back To It (brief health update and recording of progress)

Today I did something I love to do, but haven’t been able to do for a while. I ran with MapMyFitness! Distance: 4.00mi, time: 53:15, pace: 13:19min/mi, speed: 4.51mi/h.

I hadn’t been able to run since before pregnant with Elijah and if you check out my story here, you’ll understand why. I’ve missed it more than I could really convey. To me running has become alone time, a symbol of overcoming mental road blocks, and a peaceful time that leaves me feeling great all day!

I was cleared by my doctor to start working out recently and I knew I’d be nowhere​ near the HIIT workouts I used to do much less running 7 miles like old times. So I decided to try not to assess myself by an old guage, but rather go by how I was feeling. 

I am not yet done with my lead chelation detox, I still have about 1, possibly 2 months left and then moving the attention to healing the gut lining; during that time exercise has to be a delicate process. I can taste the strong days, they’re within reach now. I owe that all to my merciful God.

If I look back to where I came from, I can hardly believe that a year ago I was crying out to God for THIS time!! He has not only brought me through, but he kept his promise to give me abundance in him. I still “feel” bad days of fatigue every now and again, but I always have a Loving God to cradle me in those times and I’m so blessed and grateful!

From time to time I’ll give updates here if you’d like to watch my progress. Health is a GIFT I won’t take for granted!!

Giveme some feedback, would you guys be interested in seeing a sample menu of what I’m eating to stay/get healthy? 

Have a wonderful Sunday evening!
