Ok, so my last entry was a few weeks ago (almost 3 actually) complaining about the fact that I didn't remember how to "do this"... Meaning eat healthy on a consistent basis without roller coastering out of control.
Since March 1st I've been doing decent. I would say out of 16 days I tracked my food 14 or so. One thing that I've found is that on days that I would have said to myself - I messed up so just might as well give up - when I actually went and entered in the food I ate, it WAS NOT the end of the world. It was usually much less worse than I made it out to be in my own mind.
This was mind altering to me, because that is usually what causes me to spin our of control and back into old habits super fast.
So, the other thing I did this month was give up the Insanity workouts (they really are extreme and insane) for my first love...running. I've been running consistently (in addition to snow skiing most weekends) and the running has got me into a good mental state for the most part. I'm feeling good (not that I havent' been exercising)... Running just does that for me.
The other huge thing is that I'm usually suffering in a bad way from allergies, BUT I switched to a naturopathic doctor who is supporting my body systems, and guess what???? I am OK! Usually by now I've missed several days of work because of infections due to allergies. I'm in heaven. No itching, no sneezing!
Life is good, we just have to keep our chin up, do what we already know we should do...and be ok with imperfection.
