Yesterday: I maintained the integrity of my calorie budget, I remained refined sugar-free, I exceeded my daily water goal, and I stayed well connected with exceptional support. 7 Stars earned yesterday by way of: Morning foundational routine, staying within food plan boundaries, personally preparing all three meals, midday meditation break, exceeding water goal, and two points for the elliptical workout.
Mom and I decided it was likely the wiser choice to wait until the expected warmup this weekend for her to get out and about. This decision changed the plans around last night, but it all worked out well.
I'm really noticing the mental benefits of getting back into a more consistent exercise schedule. It is so easy to fall back into a place of inconsistency! Then, I believe, the barrier becomes this all or nothing perspective/attitude where I start to believe how I need to create this elaborate schedule/plan and high expectations--before getting started...and that's not what works for me.
Just doing something, anything, and not being afraid to start small, makes a huge difference. I've often spoken and written about paralysis by analysis and how that dynamic often keeps us from moving forward. Yet, I'm imperfectly human and occasionally find myself falling into that groove. One of the biggest takeaways for me over the last decade of this blog and journey has been the importance of just doing and allowing the plan and practice to naturally evolve along the way.
|This wasn't just an elliptical workout.|
It was learning about ping-pong from the
SYSK Podcast followed by rocking out
to big pop hits of the 80's and 90's.
