TODAY WAS A GOOD DAY PEOPLE.
Seriously. I feel pretty good about things.
What things? Let me tell you.
I’m back on track.
After finishing LiveFit then freaking out over my mom’s cancer then moving back to the USA I let myself completely derail from the healthy living thing. I wasn’t out there eating twinkies and chugging soda, but I wasn’t paying attention to my food and I wasn’t exercising much at all.
Frankly I felt awful last week because of it. A few weeks of that made me feel just AWFUL.
I can only go so far off track these days before my body screams at me to stop it and treat it better. Better food, more movement, more positive thinking. Those things are the important things to me and make me feel better. It’s important for me to feel good, to feel strong, to feel capable. So I’m shaking off the last few weeks and getting back on track.
- Taking my lunch to work most days. (Started today!)
- Going for a walk before/after work and during lunch. (Also did today!)
- Tracking what I’m eating in some way. (Back to MyFitnessPal counting today!)
- Forcing my thoughts to the positive. (Harder, but I’ve tried today to banish the downer vibes!)
It’s pretty damn annoying to go through this process so many times (and probably more annoying to read for those faithful reader who want to shake me sometimes). You know… I get to my healthiest point and then for whatever reason slide into less than healthy behaviors. Here’s to hoping one day this isn’t something I do anymore.
But for now I’ll deal with the reality of the situation. Taking it one day at a time. Small healthy behaviors lead to bigger changes, right?
Go team Merry Life. (Maybe we need to work on the team name, hehe. Suggestions welcome.)
All The Other Things
There’s a lot of stuff happening in my life right now that I’m not talking about and might not for a while.
Doesn’t matter though… I feel good about the things that are happening behind the scenes. Life is good.
