I managed to overcome my terrible morning feelings yesterday and turn it into a pretty great day. I saw the perfectly blue sky outside, crisp air and the perfect blanket of white snow and was randomly inspired to go on a run at lunch. It turned into a 6.5 mile sprint! I was so exhilarated by the cold air and pent up energy from not exercising. After work I bought a membership to the gym right here and did a quick strength workout that made me realize how weak and sluggish I have become. For some reason, when I don't workout consistently my arms swell like crazy, my stomach always stays pretty thin so people don't realize I fluctuate by 10 pounds every week or so, but arms and legs are like balloons. Not a fun feeling. I think I actually miss going to a gym with mirrors and just working my butt off. When I don't have mirrors around I tend to not realize that I've gone off course and last night was a brutal awakening. Oh well, resilience and patience.
Today I ate 2 muffins my friend baked for work which I count as work food, so I need to re-evaluate how to say no! I worked out this morning for 50 minutes, achieving my goal but we went out for a goodbye lunch for a coworker and I feel sick again. I did well- I got an elk burger and didn't eat the bun and only ate a few fries while they devoured everything, but I still feel heavy from the greasiness, oil and salt. Keep pushing forward, I can't let it get to me.
Today I am excited for going to a New Years Party and cheering for the wonders the next year will bring now that I will be so steady and content with who I am. I can only do better in the year to come!
