I swore off supplements for a long time, thinking that I could get everything my body needs through food.
While I still think that’s a mostly accurate statement, it assumes I’m eating a wide variety of foods every single day, for my entire life. Unfortunately, my love for tacos and homemade pizza permanently disqualifies me.
I don’t know what, but something clicked last year and I did some research on adding supplements to my diet. It could have been the fact that my restless legs were keeping me up EVERY.SINGLE.NIGHT. Whatever spawned me to research the benefits of magnesium, I’m so glad I did – it could have been the root cause of so many of my problems!!
In an effort to keep my weight (a.k.a. blogger butt) under control, I took up running about a year ago.
After running consistently for a few weeks, my husband asked if I had a running goal in mind.
“Well, no. To be honest, I don’t really WANT to run. I just want to fit in my pants,” is what I said to him. In my BRAIN.
But somehow, “I think I want to run a marathon,” came out of my MOUTH.
And now I’m making marathon training high protein oatmeal every Saturday morning…
