If you know me (or have read this blog much), you know that I am on a continual journey to be healthy, spirit, mind and body. I exercise regularly, watch what I eat, and fill my mind with truth. In most of my Monday and Thursday posts, I am sharing with you ideas and things that I have learned (and am learning) in my spiritual life. And I have occasionally shared about my physical challenges as well.

Recently, I made a big decision to follow a whole foods, plant-based diet. It wasn’t a snap decision, it is one I have been thinking and ruminating on for 6-9 months, but when I finally decided, I jumped in with both feet. Needless to say, I am learning a lot very quickly, but it is a pretty steep learning curve. Fortunately, I have friends who are further down the path than me, as well as one good friend who jumped in about the same time as I did, so we are learning together.

In addition to learning new ways to think about eating and preparing food, I am also learning how that affects my running and how to make sure I am getting all that I need to be adequately fueled every day.

I know that I am not the only one who is working to be healthy on all fronts, so I decided that I would add Food and Fitness Fridays to my blog. Each Friday I will talk about recipes, challenges, things I am learning on this front, running, and who knows what else. I will share with you what I am learning, and hopefully, you will learn something, too.

So, beginning next week, I will be blogging on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays instead of Mondays and Thursdays. Tune in and we’ll see what’s in store!
