Embracing The Healthy Me Journey


Sometimes, we have to take a moment to stop, reevaluate and adjust our tasks on our journey.  Today, I found some more exercise routines and I also reevaluated my eating habits.  My way of thinking is totally different now.  In the past, I would not have changed my workout routine by decreasing the number of workouts.  I would have increased to more than 2 a day workouts and developed an injury probably.  I am not that same person.  I am working on been better than the person I was yesterday.  Since I am striving for progress and not perfection, I do not have a problem with slowing down to get better results.  It is not a race.  I will not be penalized if I adjust my tasks.  I could try to increase my workouts and risk injury.  What good would that do?  That’s a setback waiting to happen.  It seems like my body has gotten used to the 2 a day routine.  It’s time to change things around.  I have been doing 2 a day for most of this journey.  They last for about 2 -2 1/2 hours a day.  I started Tuesday of this week decreasing how many workouts I complete on exercise days.    As I am typing this, I am wondering if I can stick to this for the rest of June. I will try.  I am also increasing strength training and decreasing cardio.   I started two days ago and it has been hard but I am learning a valuable lesson in the process.   I am embracing the journey.  Sometimes, I have to slow down to give my body time to recover and refuel and it’s OK.  Remember, I said slow down not STOP.  I would rather decrease/increase instead of increase/risk injury to my body.  I will increase my workouts back to 2 a day probably in July.  There is not a finish line on this journey.  This is a lifestyle.



 Let’s embrace our journeys and the lessons we learn along the way.
