I have found my groove for the past week and did not write about it so I would not jinx it! It always amazes me how good it feels to have worked out for a week and even the muscle pain after a good strength training is amazing. It is a different story when I eat the way I should, too.
So - why is it that this sort of thing that does you good never comes naturally? Instead as soon as my attention turns to some other thing I'm out there binging and being lazy to move at all and the old elliptical transforms to a clothes hanger?
There is no logic. There is no excuse. All right I may feel tired after all the stress. And I'm stressed because, it seems, something drives me to do more than I can. Sometimes, it's things inside me (like the fact that I was taught that I'm responsible for EVERYTHING and EVERYBODY); sometimes it just comes from life (like paying for the education for your children must be done somehow, doesn't it?). But there will be sometime when I am not around - and the world will keep spinning (well, I doubt it, but they keep telling me, it will!)
Why should I not just pick my battles and make space for healthy.
I so wished healthy came instinctively (like letting go always does). Any solutions?
