Truth and Dare

Friday, May 18, 2012

Truth: Everything you want is just outside your comfort zone... - thanks Connie!

Truth: I'm relocating. My world is upside down. I'm trying to find new healthy options at new restaurants and stores, with less time to cook than ever. I've been striving for the daily 10000 steps a day and given how busy work is, I'm satisfied when I get over 7500 since the avg person does around 3000 steps/day.

Do I dare recommit to cooking more? I'm home so little, that I think that would not be a good use of financial or time resources.
Do I dare keep fitness in mind and look for housing around national, state, or county parks with walking/hiking trails?
Do I dare establish a social network based on maintaining a healthy lifestyle?
Do I dare look for a 5k or running group to help me find the inner athlete?
Do I join a gym?
Do I find a CrossFit gym to continue my fitness journey along the Primal route?
Or do I dare adopt the smarter science of slim exercise approach )along with continued walks and "outdoor play"?

My re-commitments:

1. I will be driving my car to Charlotte in a week or so and will pack key kitchen items I've missed (including my steamer, salt free spices, etc.).
2. I will be bringing my exercise equipment necessary for the Smarter Science of Slim - including kettle bell. Pull up bar, and step and will add these new activities to my regular routine.
3. I will also be more vigilant in identifying ways to focus on more lean proteins, veggies, and water.
4. Finally, I will NOT get caught up in the 'distractions' of some of the teams I am currently engaged in and will refocus my efforts on the activities that have brought me success in the past and will continue my personal journey towards health. If necessary, I will leave a few teams if I cannot fully participate and support to expected levels.

    Very good laid out plans. You can do this. It is hard to try to follow a solid lifestyle in the middle of relocating, but you if you make a sincere stab at it, that's better than not doing anything at all. Looking forward to you getting settled and being able to put your committments into full force.
