Today is the most beautiful day!  Fall.  Leaves.  Trail Runs.  I am 99.9% over my marathon soreness!  The leaves are starting to change and I need to get out on the trails.  I’m hoping my friends are up for several more mountain runs this season!  Tomorrow is a 5k at my daughter’s school and she actually came to me and said she wanted to run it!  We’ll see how she feels about 3 miles!  She is my most NOT a runner of all my kids!

I mentioned I’d talk about lowering your metabolism and decreasing body fat.  From the article I read in Max Muscle, most of the suggestions are things I harp about all the time.  Yay for me (:  Here’s the list:

  • Exercise, especially weight training.
  • Eat smaller portions of protein 3 or more times a day.
  • Eat 5-6 small meals a day.
  • Get plenty of sleep.
  • Eat high fiber foods.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Focus on breathing, especially when working out.
  • Add fish and fish oils to your diet.

There you have it!!!  Starting officially on Monday (:  I’m going to work on a few of my weaknesses.  I want to lean out some more.  I’ll be doing several of the above listed pointers!!  I’m looking forward to fast runs, hard weights, and MORE sleep!

We had a good week!  My Mom celebrates her birthday tomorrow!  My sister and I took her to dinner and the mall!!  Cute Mom!
