Sweatual Healing + Meal Planning

Sweatual Healing

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Mira.

The news of the results of my MRI last week kind of brought me down (again). And then when I found out that I can’t get into the foot and ankle specialist till the end of August, that just brought me down even further. I really was hoping that I’d get a magical cortisone shot (or something) within the next week and I’d be running by mid August.

Well, that’s not happening.

So I had to put my big girl panties on (again) and remember what I can do rather than what I can’t. The most important thing is that I can still do exercises that make me sweat. When I can do an exercise that gets my heart pumping and the sweat coming out in buckets, I feel the most calm, vibrant and alive. It makes everything all good.

Let’s just call it Sweatual Healing.

The awesome Mira Fit peeps describe sweatual healing as what happens to your body after exercising. It may start off as a feeling—like that burst of confidence you get after a sweaty workout or a sense of calm after a long walk—and quickly evolves into much more.

Don’t you just love that?

So what am I doing for my sweatual healing? I’m tackling the biggest hills I can on my bike. I’m walking for miles and miles. I’m lifting weights. I’m doing Tabata’s. I’m doing the elliptical. I’m doing yoga. Whatever it takes to make me feel alive and strong and to get my healing on. And I’m still wearing my Mira Fitness Tracker daily to keep track of my steps.

What’s for Dinner? {Week of July 19}

I’ve found a new (to me) kitchen gadget and I’m in love.

For quite some time, I’ve seen Zoodle recipes around the internet. I was interested, but finally took the leap and bought my own spiralizer last week.

And now, I want to spiralize EVERYTHING!

It’s so fun! The kids’ think so too. I even got my daughter to try zucchini. And she liked it. Woohoo!

I got THIS spiralizer after reading so many great reviews from others. I fully agree! (Disclaimer – it’s an affiliate link).

Hope you are having a lovely weekend. We spent the afternoon kayaking with the kids yesterday. It was their first time and they loved it. AND no kayaks were over turned. It was a good day!

Have a good day!
