How To Keep Going When Things Don't Go As Planned

Well, if you follow me on social media, then you saw this picture flash up on Saturday.

That's right....I spent my Saturday morning getting all my necessities packed up to get me through my half marathon. You know, the one I asked you to celebrate with me about on Friday, ya that one! 

I was busy cleaning my house, shaving my legs, and packing bags for my family. I had plans to run a couple of errands, then we were hitting the road by 1PM, in order to drive the 5 hrs to get to my half marathon location! 

Then, when I was about to grab my son to go run errands, my husband called to inform me that I should not be driving because of the ice covering the roads, and dangerous weather conditions. 

So in short....we did not make the trip to College Station, TX. and I did not run across the finish line to receive a medal, completing my first half marathon post baby. 

And yes, my suitcase is still packed, and sitting on my bedroom floor! (moping much?)

SO, HOW DO I KEEP GOING WHEN THINGS DON'T GO AS PLANNED!?!? 

Well, to start, I looked at the silver lining and enjoyed a good day celebrating friends on Sunday. We attended several celebrations that we would've missed otherwise. 

Next, I choose to not sulk. Although I did enjoy a few extra pieces 0f the SUGAR FREE Chocolate cake that I made this weekend! (yummo!)

Then, I make plans to have a successful week, and continue prepping for my next half marathon I have in the books, which is April 12th! 

That half marathon I will be running with my husband! Which how sweet will that be! Considering it will be his first ever, and my first post baby! 

And, I am currently looking for a run to take part in during the month of March! I'm itching to race, but I want to stay local instead of spending money traveling, so we will see what I can find! 

So all that to say, I'm spending time choosing to MOVE, NOURISH, & BELIEVE this week! Living the Lorna Jane Mantra, and joining The Fit Switch & Jill Conyers for the #DishtheFit Link Up!

MOVE: 

My plan to MOVE this week is to get back into a good training schedule. Now that the ice is melting around here (praying it is done for good), and we are getting more daylight, I will continue training hard. + Find a run (even just a local 5K or 10K) to take part in before my April 12th half marathon! 

NOURISH: 

Continue staying strong in my Sugar-Free Eating and learning good recipes for my family! And making sure not to replace healthy sugar-free eating with random sugar free things that are processed. More on this tomorrow! 

BELIEVE: 

First, I will not be sad about missing my half-marathon, but believe that we made the best choice to keep our family safe and off the roads, and trusting that the Lord knew why we weren't supposed to be there, and being okay with that. 

Secondly, this week specifically, I am choosing to believe in the BIG DREAMS that my husband and I have been having for our future, and the future of our business, Simply Suell! And I am choosing to keep dreaming and believing that these big things will happen in our future! 

More This Week!
