I think I realized something important yesterday. I think I have the post-vacation blues. I have been waiting for this trip for almost two years and I have been actively planning it for over a year. Now it's over. I have never been the kind of person to feel this way, but it seems to be the case. I have always chosen to be happy, so now that I suspect this is happening, I can work on changing it.
My fill has gone very well so far, so that's good. I think the most important thing I can do for myself is to do a meal plan for the next week, go to the grocery store and get everything ready. I am the first to admit, that I have a horrible relationship with food and I make very bad choices when I'm tired/hungry/anxious and don't have a plan.
The second thing I can do is get active. A friend shared this today:
While I've always known this to be true, I realized when I read it, that I'm living the first sentence. Yes, I realize that I've had a less than stellar week. But usually, I don't let those kinds of things stop me. Yet this week, I have used any excuse to not do anything. I even ended up working from home a portion of yesterday afternoon for no other reason than I just felt overwhelmed.
That is when I had an A-HA moment and realized that I missed planning my vacation. Isn't that crazy? But I know that is what has me so in the dumps. Time to power through and get happy!
For next week, I had just about convinced myself to Jazzercise my assigned days and deal with everything else later. Meaning, no challenge to my workout routine. Well, there is no later. Later could have me convinced to stop eating right... So my commitment to next week is to work out M-Th. (2 Jazzercise, 2 CrossFit) My mom is coming to visit for the holiday weekend and that is going to be a blast.
September I start my new workout schedule. The plan is to CrossFit on Mondays, Tuesdays, & Thursdays each week. If I can successfully do that, which in NO WAY is that big of a deal, I will add a fourth day each week in October.
I know I can do this and I know by eating right and working out consistently, I will feel so much better. I just have to get the activity started so I can fuel more.
