This week on my Harry Potter team challenge, one of the ways to earn points is by writing a blog addressing the following topic:
What's something you're having to overcome in your journey? How are you handling this on your own terms?
~ I have had to overcome the obstacle of time by scheduling workouts around my family's schedules. It is difficult at times but I try to incorporate their schedules into my workouts (for example, after dropping off my older daughter at a class, I can jog back home rather than walk).
~ I have had to overcome the obstacle of a bad back. I haven't been able to run in months and every time I try I end up aggravating my injury. But I am still forcing myself to get lots of walking in. And I know I will be able to run again some day.
~ I have had to overcome the obstacle of alcohol. When alcohol is in my life on a regular basis, I drink more than a normal amount and in turn eat more than a normal amount because the alcohol clouds my judgments and confuses both my mind and body. I think I am handling this better as time passes, although I still occasionally treat myself at a party or nice meal out. I recognize that I have a hard time with the whole moderation thing and therefore will not allow myself to have it in the house.
There are plenty more obstacles, but these are the major ones!
