I've been here before. But one of the motivational items I received from another Spark member a while ago has a line on it "you are human, you will fail sometimes. Nothing worth achieving is ever going to be easy or happen straight away. JUST KEEP GOING!"
I am shifting my plan though.
I recently started getting back into yoga. I'm going to continue going in this direction, even if it means I may have to drop some other exercises for a bit until I get times figured out. Its funny, I can do a vinyasa and hold a plank form but if you just have me doing strength training and get into a plank form, I'm terrible at holding it. I'm sure its just a mind set.
But I need to look at my mind set right now. Looking at why I've failed, its generally related to stress and pain. When I previously was doing yoga, it was during a healthy period of my life. I've been struggling to get back into it, but I've been pushing with my old routines. Lately I've been finding new ones that fit better right now. I don't know a better way to say it, but I think other yoga people out there will know what I mean.
And I'm grocery shopping tonight. NO JUNK! When I get frustrated and stressed, I buy junk. I'm clearing it out! Back to cooking tonight. I like cooking, and it gives me leftovers for healthy lunches.
And . . . I am avoiding the cake in the upstairs conference room. Honestly, it isn't that good of a cake anyway. So I know that I'm not really missing anything. I would rather save my sweet tooth for good treats now and then.
Tomorrow is my MD appointment. Hopefully my doc and I will be able to work out some better pain management to compliment my new focus.
