I opened my email last night to find that my blog had been nominated for the Top 25 Health and Wellness Moms on Circle of Moms. I was stoked when I became a Top 25 Outdoorsy Mom awhile back, so I never thought I’d be nominated for anything else. Whoever did think of nominating me, thank you very much! I’m honored that someone would take the time to think of me and this blog.
I’m trying hard to take charge of my health and wellness, as well as the health and wellness of my family. If you are already a regular reader you will see that we believe that nature not only heals the soul, but can play a powerful role in providing positive sensory input and problem solving skills for my child with Autism. I can safely say that without so much time outdoors connecting with nature, we never would have seen such progress in Big Brother. I hope to use this blog to inspire others to get out there and live a life of adventure….for your health and for your happiness!
And for myself, I have been working hard to train for my upcoming Half Marathon. In fact, tomorrow morning I’m running a 7 mile trail race to get warmed up for the big event 🙂 Since I started my training a couple of months ago, I’ve lost over 12 pounds and have dropped my percentage of body fat by several points. I am feeling more energized and happier already! I am so excited about this new journey I’m on and I am happy to be sharing it with all of you. If you feel like voting, you can click on the image below to do so. I’m just excited that people find this blog as a place of encouragement and inspiration. Thank you all!
I’ll let you know how my first ever trail race goes tomorrow, wish me luck, I think I’m going to need it!
