Winter Winds

Today was a pretty great workout!  overall I ran about 3.3 and walked 1.3 miles 🙂  I also am really excited to be starting school on Tuesday and already have a bunch of readings I have to do for class.  On another note it was definitely a bit chillier in Minnesota today as it was in the 60’s.  Hence why I chose the song!

Workout song of the day: “Winter Winds” by Mumford & Sons

I’ve probably posted this song before but I really enjoy it!


Link of the day:

I was really thinking about what it meant to live life free from fear today.  It is more than just a mindset, I am done living in fear of what others may say or think.  The post is a reminder that we only live one life and what happens in that life is what we make of it.  Well I choose to be honest with myself and others even if it hurts or isn’t always the socially appropriate thing to do.  Even if it means I don’t always have the “upper hand”.  I have realized lately that what makes me the happiest is being myself and not compromising that.

    I really loved what you said here and now I wonder about what kind of fear that you have experienced. I feel your strength come through in this post. Thinking of you!
    : )

    • Aw, thank you 🙂 I’ve experienced plenty of fear, fear of gaining the weight back, fear of failure, fear of losing someone I love. But through it all I have just had to remember to keep it together and keep pushing forward and be myself!
