We’ve received a ton of rain in Texas recently. I’m grateful for the rain.

A little over a month ago I completed my first marathon. I still can’t believe it! Since the marathon I’ve run a couple of times but have mostly focused on weight training. I decided to focus on weights partly to give my body a break from running and partly because I want to give my body a chance to get stronger. I have to tell you, I’m loving weights! I love that I can be creative in what exercises I choose and what body part I want to work each day. Granted, it’s also kind of stressful since there are so many options but I really like being in control of my workout. If there’s an exercise I have on the schedule but I really don’t want to do it, no sweat. I choose something else. Although exercise is a commitment and I don’t always feel like doing it, I don’t want it to feel like a big chore. Being flexible with my weight lifting routine helps a lot.
I’m excited to share more about my weight lifting journey with you! I took some “before” photos and hopefully by the end of the summer, I’ll be brave enough to show you where I started and how far I’ve come.
