As you may have noticed, I have been MIA for quite a few months, almost a year (let’s be real). The best time to start a blog was probably not during the last year of my masters but heyyyy I’m graduated now and can pick up where I left off.
That will be easier said than done. This is because I’m not really picking up where I left off.
I have fallen off the proverbial wagon big time.
I went from eating clean with some cheats here and there, to completely unregulated eating. I went from working out 4-6 days a week, to working out none.
I let the stress of life and school take over my health and make me throw away my passion.
But, doesn’t this sound familiar? I think it does. A lot of us go through this when life gives us curve balls, or puts more on our plate than we can handle.
So what can we do when this happens, because, let’s be real, it’s bound to happen again. Life keeps happening and going on no matter what we do.
Want to know what I am going to do?
I am going to chase that wagon down and try to hop back on. My mistake does not define me. I have been pretty hard on myself for this, not gonna lie. I was reading through my first blog posts and had to remind myself of all the things I said in this little gem.
The best thing we can do when we face our criticism of ourselves for slip ups, is to let go of that criticism and keep chasing the wagon.
So, for now I’m going to re-correct some bad habits, and get back in a yoga flow.
Yoga was my first fitness love, so I’m going to go back to my mat to find not only some zen, but so love and passion as well.
I’m going to start a journal series on here as well. This is going to be where I post my raw, unfiltered thoughts as I go along and rediscover my passion for fitness and getting back in shape. It’ll read kind of like a, you guessed it, journal entry. Maybe you will be able to relate to it. Let me know!
