I've been in a general life funk for weeks & I'm tired of feeling tired. I went for a 5K run last night & my body felt heavy, lethargic, slow, burdened; my mind & spirit feel as blah as my body does, & this isn't how I want to live.
To regroup, I need to know where I am now so I can plan where I'm going.
Food - not keeping track; eating whatever I want in large portions; eating well past fullness; high carb intake with refined flours & sugars being the main source; little to no veggie intake; fruit is ok since I've got a lot of berries on hand.
Exercise - only doing 3 mild-moderate cardio workouts a week; only 1 strength workout a week; no yoga or stretching
Water - average intake is probably 4-5 cups a day
Sleep - doing better the last two weeks with 7+ hours during the week & 9-10 on the weekends
Spirit - limited internet access means I connect less with everyone here; I haven't been working on or doing spirit-supporting practices; haven't spent much time with friends lately
Now that's in place, what do I want to focus on? There are so many things, so I'll take a page from Stage 1 & do a 2-week Fast Break. Starting tomorrow, I'll write down everything I eat & share it here to boot.
Here's to being successful again!
