OH NOOO ....My Running Buddy is Sick! Now who will tell me if I have under garment issues?:)...only a sister would do that.

Holla Girls!!!
           Today I almost stayed home from my 5k training because my workout buddy a.k.a (my sister) was sick, What was I to do?? Go alone? I could never, all by my little self? LOL ...I had to resist the desire to all of sudden be sick . LOL. So instead I told myself to do the opposite of what I was feeling...You GO Girl..the following questions began rolling in my mind , but who will I talk to? go to the bathroom with? Who will tell me if I have a wedgie? LOL!!! Because you know girlfriends do these things for one another.!Ok to much friend dependency.I went and was sooo glad I did,I  met a new friend in class and she was an awesome mom training to run her 2nd 5k. I would say dont be afraid to go it alone sometimes it opens doors to meeting new friends that are interested in knowing you! have a wonderfully blessed day!! Alisha:)

Want PEACE? Stay at your own pace!

This morning as I headed out to meet our training team at the MArshall Rec.Ctr we all got in our regular formation and drill with Moe and Erica our trainers. As they layed out the run before us changing things up a bit we were all pumped and ready to take off!
As sis and I began running and running and running she became somewhat breathless and I looked at her and said, hey the great  thought and truth that brings much pEACE is that we are not running this race to compete or keep up with others faster then us, were running this to become stronger, healthier and attain the level were suppose to attain, not any one else's goal level.
Let's rest in the PEACE of knowing that when were doing any exercising, don't start the mental beat up session on YOURSELF, just exercise at your pace and your body will let you know when its time to step up on your game! Be at PEACE with who you are and where you are starting out in your regiment of fitness.  It's always inspiring and reinvigorating to change things up and chose a variety of fitness experiences to stay focused and keep your drive in check to achieve the best for YOUR health and fitness! please continue your support and share your thoughts and wisdom with all of us at 2 Moms on the run.
God Bless,

"I want my BINKY STOP CAR STOP" Effective ways to destress! :) and defy gravity

Okay today I am not speaking about my get healthy be a fit mommy goals, I am sharing about how I destress when I am feeling my stress level rise. On the way to my moms I was driving and Haven dropped her binky and yes she is too old for a binky , but thats something I am sure we will discuss under another topic such as why I never get sleep anymore LOL!!:)Anyhow I heard it pop out of her mouth and hit the floor and I knew it was coming," I dropped my Binky Stop car stop whaaaaa!!! LOL I began to explain " mommy cant get the binky right now , I cant pull the car over."I want my Binky stop car".I began to say" we have to learn to wait , we cant always get what we want when we want it".I said Breathe in thru your nose out thru your mouth , I looked in my rear view mirror demonstating this method she looked at me strange and began to giggle, I kept demonstating and before I knew it she  had forgotten about the binky and I was really calm myself LOL!  Loved watching her try to suck air thru her nose and exhale like a fish thru her mouth. And guess what the binky is still in the car and she is on to something else LOL! When you feel stress take a deep breath in and exhale it out. I will try this again especially while waiting in a long line at walmart! Well that or squeezing my buns together at least its helping defy gravity.:) and that is my fit tip SQUEEZE YOUR BUNNS TOGETHER! lol BY: Alisha .H

Dare to Dream

Taking some texts from a book that was given to me as a gift, titled YOU CAN DO IT! THis book was purchased and given to me by my sister Alisha about 2 years ago while living in Louisville,Ky. My sister and I have always been so close and best friends that share everything together.......conversations about our kids,our spouses,our disappointments,our joys,our needs,our wants, and almost all the time when we called each other, which was approximately everyday 2 x a day, we shared in our conversations Our Passions.....Our Dreams!

Always talking about it but never really pursuing, but this has all since changed as of this past spring. We both are proving that by just "DOING IT" something inside you begins to transpire and change and cause such a driving force that is unstoppable like the force of a mothers LOVE nothing will change that LOVE for your child, nothing will stop a mommas LOVE from helping her child,from caring for that child and giving it all that it needs, nothing that is most fearful will STOP that force of a mommas LOVE! I'm sure all you mothers could agree?
I must share that beginning college this past spring at 35 years of age was quite an unusual feeling of mixed emotions for me but the way GOD so orchestrated everything was simply a GOD THING as some  call it! I literally tasted,dreamed,daydreamed and often envisioned myself going to college with my sister but now it was actually a reality that was being birthed right before my eyes as we both walked across campus from class to class also with us our cousin Thomasina.
How I sit back and am so WOWED by GOd's handy work in placing those dreams in my mind and heart, the passions as well! I have faced fear right in the face and God has shown me that there is nothing impossible with HIM and through HIM! I can achieve with HIM! He is leading me to face all the fear that has tried and has bound my mind at times that I couldn't succeed because of my past, my family's past, my insecurities, but certain areas of fear in my life have been broken and I am literally seeing the lies the enemy has placed before me come crashing down,being dissolved, disappearing like a vapor! Christ has placed in me a greater purpose then my own agenda.
A statement from this book states this, "It is not because things are difficult that we do not DARE; but it is because we do not DARE that they are difficult."
THis statement is so powerful and it use to ring loud like a school bell in my life. My life literally became so difficult because I wouldn't DARE step out by faith and try those things I dreamed of doing or pursuing! It just takes timing and one step forward to falling into the deep waters of our dreams and in doing so discovering that we have left the shoreline of fear,doubt,and worry that we realize it was there all the time just like the ocean was there the entire time waiting for us to take the plunge and discover all the treasures and joys GOd has to show us that He wants to do in our lives to free us to DARE and help others to be freed to DARE and just DO IT!
Here's a last lil tidbit or golden nugget for you, from Lauren Grandcolas in the book YOU CAN DO IT .............

"I rarely regret things I have done,but often regret things I haven't-whether its a dinner invitation I turned down, a class I didn't take,or a trip I thought I was too busy for. Why is that it's so much easier to talk ourselves out of things than into things? I suppose "just say NO" has it's place,but to really live, I'm learning it's also important to say, YES"..............Maria

Be Blessed,
Candice

So whats got your undies in a BUNCH???

Have you ever shared an idea or a dream you have for yourself with someone else and they look at you like they've got their undies in a bunch! LOL

   I know what you mean, 2 moms on the run wants to be your encourager. We want women to see if we can share and accomplish our dreams YOU can too. Our vision is NOT to make it all about us, but to make it about ALL of us, You know women like you and me!

 Its scary to have a dream in your heart and hold it there in secret protecting it from what people will think if you share it,how they might reject it or dismantle it with all the reasons it just wont work. Nevertheless you must share it , once it is released it then becomes a possibilty. Yeah I know its risky to put yourself out there and be vulnerable but not  everyone is a debbie downer LOL! maybe your journey isnt a 5k, or to jump from a plane, or go back to school but whatever it is embrace its possibilties!!All women need encouragement and support thats what 2 moms on the run is about! What all of us CAN DO! WHEE! Thanks Alisha

Do you have workout burnout??

Well girls we all get it  the dreaded same old exercise routine burnout, sometimes doing the same old exercise can get BORING...its great for our minds and our muscles to try something new. I like Zumba a fusion of latin dance and exercise its great fun and after a few minutes ya dont think of it as exercise but you are moving all kinds of muscles! Try something new this week and you might be suprised just how much good a little change can do! Now go gettem girls! :)

Fun on the run

Today I had to do my training outdoors at ritter park. I met Candice and I had to unexpectedly take my little Haven for the run, she wasnt too  fussy, she is 3 yrs old so I was afraid it would be a broken record of I wanna play on the swings but she did okay. I thought about not going but Candice got me movin!Do you ever have times where you have to improvise because of the kiddies what advice do you have to share?
