Seeing this on the Brooks Facebook page made my morning:
My dad and I went out to the park track again bright and early this morning.
Apparently I forgot that my dad was taking a picture and not a movie judging by the fact that I was waving to you guys during the picture. Maggie and I did a few glorious laps together and then I finished up the rest of my easy run by myself. I don’t know what it was about today but today was just not my day for running and I wanted to stop a quadrillion times. I just kept reminding myself that that is normal and tomorrow will be better.
And this was today’s fancy brunch that I had. After my run I had eggs and then when Brooke went down for her nap I did too. I have been doing this really smart thing where I read until 1 a.m. and then wake up at 6 a.m. to run while at my parent’s house. Zucchini bread with chocolate chips is straight from heaven.
Vikki sent me an article and the whole time I was reading it I was thinking in my head, ‘YES.’ I have never related more to an article than to this one, 13 Signs You’re Addicted to Froyo.
My two favorites.
I do this all of the time:
A few people have asked for me to have my Dad share a few of his tips on how he has been successful at getting healthier!
From my Dad:
A doctor told me the best secret to losing weight is to just write down each day everything that you eat. Mom bought me a small notebook which we put on the kitchen counter along with a pen and a postal scale to weigh portions. The doctor also told me for a man my size it would be safe to lose 2 pounds a week. The rest is just a little math.
