Exercise wise? Great! 45 minutes of cardio, 30 minutes of ab exercises and stretching.
Food wise? Pretty good. Didn’t finish my counting for the day, but everything was a pretty healthy choice and stayed close to my calorie count.
Emotional/ mental health wise? Not good. I thought I was doing okay, but I think I was just avoiding a lot of pent up feelings. I’m confusing sadness with anger. I’m getting frustrated with certain people when I’m really just frustrated about other things. A run and some post-run yoga and meditation is much needed tomorrow. Time is also needed. I have to remind myself it’s only been a week. I’m not going to be totally okay one week later. I just need to focus my energies on myself and accomplishing my goals, and one day I will wake up without the sadness that’s buried far back in my heart. It’s okay to bring that sadness to light - it’s therapeutic, but it’s not something to dwell on. Choose to be happy. Choose to give yourself time to find complete happiness again.
Forgot to post about it yesterday, but yesterday was a relatively good day. After work I got in half an hour of cardio and then just a short half hour of weights and stretching. I noticed my hip has been bothering me a bit lately so I wanted to really stretch it out. Was going to foam roll but they were all being used at the time. It still feels better today. Talked to one of my coworkers and I may just go buy one from the running store so I can roll out at home after runs and stuff. Might help my shoulders a lot too, which have been in pain for the last month. I think I have a problem with getting pinched nerves or something back there, or my lack of a stable, supportive sports bra is causing the pain.
Eats wise, I went over my calorie count. But I was just hungry yesterday. It was just one of those days where I was extra hungry. I do think I need to start portioning out my dinner though and legitimately measuring it, even when my parents cook, so I can adequately track. Something to work on.
Just ordered my 12-pack sampler of Quest bars and I’m really excited to try all the flavors. We sell Cookies and Cream and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough at my work, so I’ve tried those and love them both. Now I can try all the flavors. I wish Quest would send me free bars to promote them because I’m seriously the biggest advocate for them.
