As much as I workout for my health, I also work out for my sanity. It’s definitely my therapy. So while I work on getting myself into a routine, I am reminded that consistency with my fitness, will lead to a happy (and obviously also healthier) Katie.

I am so thankful that I can run for my therapy. #runchat #ffcheckin #fitfluential #sweatpink

So when 4 miles just doesn’t cut it and I know there’s more stress, anxiety and case-of-the-crabby to demolish, I know my workouts and runs just aren’t consistent enough. I’m working on it, I promise. For the sake of myself, Samantha, the 50 States In A Year project and every person we come into contact with over this next year.

It’s just better that way. ;)

How were your workouts this week?

How do you work on making them happen when life gets a bit crazy?

Weekly Workouts – Catch Up Time!

I feel so out of touch with the blog world. Since I’m still trying to find my new routine, I haven’t really been writing or reading blogs, something that I very much enjoy doing so it’s been weird. I feel like I could be “missing” things which I must admit when I say it sounds absolutely ridiculous.

Anyway, last week was like a tornado. My head was all over the place and I was all over the place trying to get everything ready so we could leave for Duluth, MN. Because of this I never shared my workouts from the week so I figured this week we’ll play a bit of catch up.
