Take care of yourself.

A few months ago I signed up for Care/Of. I took the assessment and they told me what vitamins I needed to supplement my diet. Since it was my first time they gave me a great deal! It was around 30 bucks. The next month, however it was going to be the normal price of 70 dollars. I don’t know about you but I can’t afford that hefty chunk of money.

I got on Amazon, found the exact same supplements and it saved me around 20 dollars. I found some little bags that I wrote the days of the week on and now every Sunday I fill my little baggies. Sure, the convenience of having bags already made with little quotes on them were cute, adorable and easy peasy but this takes about 5 minutes on a Sunday, I can scroll through Instragram for some quotes and then take myself out with that 20 bucks I saved. It totally adds up!

Life has been a crazy ride lately. Running has not been my favorite activity. However, the temperature has finally begun to rise in Kansas City so I am hoping my motivation increases. The ebb and flow of life can be beautiful. Some days I want to run and eat spinach and other days I would rather take a long walk with Sophie and eat carrot cake. It is literally all about balance and trying to live each day and do what you want to do. I don’t want to be on my death bed and have any regrets and I know I will regret baking and eating all the cookies. I want to live a long and healthy life and that comes with having a bit of sanity and dessert keeps me sane.

I have been trying to cook more often and get Soph out of the house. Last week I cooked up some vegetable korma and took Soph to Bar K which is a dog park/bar. This is the life I want to live. I don’t want to be stuck in any boxes. I don’t want to be known as the “runner” or this and that. I just want to thrive.

Each day I want to push myself out of my comfort zone. Today I have a hair appointment and usually I just come right on home. I can get stuck in routine habits but today, I think I may explore a little more. I may grab some flowers from the farmer’s market or grab a coffee at Quay coffee. Seize the day. Breath it in.
