I know, it has been a long time since I have posted. I always say I will do better, but never seem to get with the program! My excuse? None really, it’s just laziness. I am too lazy to get my laptop out of my work bag and write a post. I will work on that.
The good news is… I have not given up on my goals for myself for 2016. I am working out consistently. I am for the most part eating clean, and I am working on being more present.
You would be proud of me. I have been in my garage 4 mornings a week at 5:30am working out. I run 3-4km do some strength training and then throw in a WOD. I am working on the skills I dislike, like push-ups, thrusters, and burpees. I am fighting through the awful, and I am continuing to do it alone. When I started my garage WODS in January I was working with just body weight, and now I am finally starting to add some weight to my WODS. My strength is nowhere near what it used to be, but I can gradually see it coming back to me. It’s a good feeling.
I’ve kept up with my running too. I fall off the wagon all the time with running, and this time I have stuck to it. Once again, I have stuck to it alone. I started in January with 7km, and I have built myself up to running 17km… ALONE! Never in my life did I imaging that I would just get myself up and go run 16+km just for fun. I have surprised myself with that adventure
The food and diet is continuing to be a bit of a struggle for one reason or another. I completed the 21 day sugar detox, and kept it going for a week post detox. Then I fell off the wagon (nothing drastic) and gained a few pounds. I have maintained mostly Paleo. I have been doing better meal planning, but always find I fall off the wagon when I have company or nothing prepared. I have realized that if I am serious about the weight loss, then I need to take it seriously and make some serious adjustments. I have discovered “If it fits my macros” flexible dieting, and I think that is the direction that I am heading in. Or at least I am trying to. That is an entire post to itself. I will get that written ASAP. ;-)
So there it is… an update. I am still focused, I am still working on my goals, just trying to figure out the best plan.
