Far from falling off the wagon, I'm still around. Doing different stuff, however. On my agenda recently:
--Finding time (and money) to finish my 200 RYT with YogaFit by the end of 2016
--Ditto for a mat Pilates certification - I'm certified with the Y, but cannot teach outside of those auspices "legally"
--Leading five classes a week - Pilates, yoga, cycling and strength - as well as filling in when I can for other folks
--Adding rowing and running back into my personal workouts
The rowing, while boring, is a great upper body exercise. So much so that my shoulders have gotten huge!!
Could be the regular Pilates and yoga, too.
The running...is kind of a grieving process. Overtraining syndrome dried up my endorphin response, so even shorter runs are tough. I'm making do with 2-4 miles right now, and hoping for a little boost once the weather is warmer and I'm not gutting it out on the 'mill.
Makes me really, REALLY miss the way I used to run. That ache in my chest isn't the A-fib...at least not all of it.
ANYWAY. That aside, I'm re-configuring and dialing back my food again. Bad habits crept in and while I was under control calorie-wise and didn't gain weight, I've been eating more processed food than I should and eating more dairy than is ok with my tummy. A little drift...croissant for breakfast rather than fruit/PB...pizza for a cheat meal...fried chicken twice a month...you get my point.
I felt better almost immediately by simply eating more fruits and veggies rather than snacking on other stuff. Darn those nutrition maxims! They're true!
And so on I go. Hope you are doing well out there in Spark-land!
