{Faith and Fitness}: Stay Fit Doing An Activity You Love

If you have read my bio, you know that I am engaged! Brendan and I will be getting married in July and we are very excited! Right now we are working on our pre-marital counseling and our counselor suggested that we find something that we both like to do and use it as an anchor in our relationship! Our anchor…cycling! This weekend we did the MS150, a 150 mile bike ride over the span of two days to raise money and awareness for Multiple Sclerosis. We had so much fun spending time together and being active! As hard as the ride was, having someone that you love to be around, right there with you encouraging you along the way, made it seem so easy!

When thinking of ways to stay active it is important to think of things that you enjoy doing! The more you like the activity and look forward to doing it, the more you will get out of it. I love playing volleyball, and do it at least once a week. That is a great way for me to burn calories without realizing that I am even working out! Whatever you decide to do, have fun! Just a tip, from personal experience, if you are going to do a big event…make sure you train for it!!! Showing up and trying to go all out is not a good idea for your body and recovery! Thank goodness for AdvoCare products and Epsom salt baths!!
