I am comfortable in my own little world. I mostly am able to maintain my weight. Except that's not really what I want to do. Sure, in the end, I want to be able to maintain my weight, but right now, I know there's more work to do.
"If you don't like what you're doing, you've got to change it". That's one of the things they say in YBB (Yoga Booty Ballet). Or words to that effect. It's one of the reasons I really enjoy YBB. A lot of inspirational chatter in there. They're not hard workouts, but they good workouts, and I enjoy them.
I realized after a while of Insanity that I was missing my YBB. I suspect my butt issues are due to overtraining with Insanity, but I'll never really know. So for now, I'm still working out, I'm still running, but I'm trying to take it just a little bit easier -- and lots of stretching of those tight hamstrings.
I thought I'd be doing speedwork for my upcoming race, but I don't think that's what my body needs right now so I'm not. I'm working on some longer runs (inside, on the treadmills) with some easier outside runs. Sometimes I actually have to reign myself in a bit on the outside runs! Not that I'm running particularly fast, but I find myself breathing heavily and have to remind myself I'm trying to take it easy.
Because I want to run for the rest of my life, not just for this upcoming race. I wanted to beat my time from my first 5k (it's the same course, after all), but while I'm still visualizing a faster time, if it doesn't happen, I'm fine with that. I've got many years to (hopefully) get faster.
And I'm excited to start swimming in a little over a week! Even if it will be hard to drag my butt out early in the morning and "late" (for me) in the evening. I know I'll feel so good afterwards.
So back to the title. Right now, I'm not trying to change up my exercise or my eating too much. But I realize I've become real good at procrastinating again, and that just has to change.
So I tackled a couple of things this morning -- one that I've been procrastinating about for months, the other it's just been a couple of days. Neither was particularly hard, so I don't know why I was procrastinating.
I contacted the company about the hole in my running tights. We'll see what they say.
And I contacted my web hosting company about moving my food blog to its own domain. Yes, I want to resurrect my food blog. Again. I have the domain. I've had it for more than a year, in fact.
I've spent the last few months trying to decide if this is what I really want to do. I'm still not really sure, but I've decided that I want to give it a year of really going for it and then re-evaluate. And that first step is to move it to its own domain, so that I can sign up with an advertising network that is devoted exclusively to food blogs. So I initiated the conversation with my host.
By now your eyes have probably glazed over if you haven't just gone on to the next blog.
But what have you been procrastinating about? How do you feel after you tackle something you've been putting off? What do you need to change to be happy with your healthy lifestyle?
Part of my problem with my food blog is that I'm not sure I will have to time to blog here & there, as blogging can be very time-consuming, but I don't think I can give up this blog either. We'll see what happens. Stay tuned!
Whew! I really thought this was gonna be a short little blog . . .
