Do you ever have those days, weeks… or even months where you just feel like you are static? you are not changing. You are not getting out of your comfort zone. Just.. nothing is happening?
That has been me for the last little while. Sure I have been working out but I haven’t been fueling the way I could be. I haven’t been challenging myself with my work. In fact, I have SLACKED with my work. I apologize if I haven’t been quick to replying with you if you have been contacting me for coaching or training. I have been an anxious mess to be honest. I haven’t felt like me. Meaning.. though I am a planning ADDICT. I write EVERYTHING down. Yet, I have managed to let things slip through the cracks. I have overwhelmed myself with a TON of things to do that I feel paralyzed and I don’t get things done. Hate that.
I don’t like not knowing what our move in date is. I don’t like that I have been comparing myself to others. I don’t like that I have allowed myself to slip into a negative slump. Not cool, man. So now what? CHANGE. That is what.
Before bed last night I wrote this on my “desk” (the quotes are because my desk is currently a whiteboard over top of some plastic storage bins..):
Be grateful (name 2 things)
Sweat it out
Sometimes, we need to slow down in order to speed up. I have said this before. I always seem to forget. It is okay to be human. It is okay to sit back and think “what needs change here.” Reflection is what helps us grow. So I woke up, took some breaths, had 32 ounces of water, thought about the amazing people I have in my life that I am grateful for, smiled, and got my sweat on.
Cardio and Plyo fix because I felt I needed a good long HARD sweat session. Man I felt ROUGH during it. Always the case after eating poorly for an extended period of time. But after? BOY did I feel good. As they say, no one regret a workout!
Tomorrow Matt and I will be off on a roadtrip. We had some free night stays at some hotels and we felt we needed some one on one time to reconnect.
Love some husby and wifey time.( Ew. Yes I just said that. Ew. Sorry. So very sorry.)
Cannot wait to show you all snippets of our trip! ❤ I am also getting Piyo certified while we are down there because.. well…we are just gonna be in that area at that time and..why not? Don’t know what Piyo is? here is a bit of a look into it.
Oh and last but not least.. I wanna show you an update on my sweet golf-ball-induced-bruise because I am a classy broad like that. I know I said I wasn’t going to do this.. but this is just too awesome..err..okay maybe a bit gross too.
That was taken yesterday.. it is a bit different looking today but hey, it will heal up. 😉 But seriously? who ever thought I would get nailed by a golf ball on a race? At the time it sucked and hurt SO bad..but now it is kinda funny in a “what the..” kinda way. Anywho, I am done here. BYEEEEEE!
