Back in the game

Tuesday, June 12, 2018

I've been away from SP (obvi!) and my consistency has not been good.

I miss my 3x weekly workout ladies in CA like CRAZY. Having that accountability was gold, y'all. So I am trying to find a new workout group here.

Back in February, I fell down the steps and sprained my ankle. Had to wear a boot for 8 weeks and I was on crutches for awhile in the beginning. Between that and not being mentally ready for the cold winter... yeah. Now that the sun is out and my ankle is stronger, I have been biking and walking and doing some strength workouts. But I could be doing much better and being more consistent, for sure. I've gained weight, mostly in my abdomen, and I want it gone!

So here's the silver lining: my hard work and time in CA helped me to learn more about myself. When it comes to being healthier, I DO know that there are things that work for me.
One of those things is having accountability, in person, to others. Showing up and being part of a group is something that gets me to that workout. Another thing is surrounding myself with friends that are making healthy choices.

I've been striking out in terms of finding another small workout group here, so far, and I'd love to hear any suggestions y'all might have.

In the meantime, I'm trying to get back to what I know works for me:

-daily workout and walk
-cutting out alcohol, added sugar and wheat/carbs, increasing the lean protein and vegetables.
-getting more/consistent sleep by keeping a routine. (I find this SUPER challenging, but important.)
-relieving stress whenever possible
