Faking It Until I MAKE IT!
Thursday, March 29, 2012
UGH, I hate feeling the way I'm feeling! In the past decade I can point exactly to what threw me off track of my healthy journeys. There are two things. 1. A vacation OR 2. A non-structured time for my kids (summer break)
This time around it's been both! Our whirlwind trip to Boise AND then boom, Spring Break! The two combined has thrown be in a downward spin out of control.
I've acknowledged this struggle and have received a lot of support to get over it.
Mentally I have no desire to break the downward spiral but in my soul I want it, want it badly! I decided I need to fake it until my mind,soul and body are inline with the same desire.
Today was baby steps, somewhat. I woke up at 6:30 and did an hour on the treadmill. 6:30 isn't super early for me. Typically to get my workouts in before my day begins I have to wake up at 4:30. With my kids' crazy spring break schedule that is NOT happening. The next thing I focused on was water. When I'm not trying to be healthy I can go days, even weeks without even one oz of water. I didn't get my normal 9 or 10 cups in but I did get 5. That's 5 more since Sunday.
My eating has been completely off. I told myself I wasn't going to stress about it. Today was just workout and water. Tomorrow I'll focus on workout, water and getting 5 fruits and veggies in!
