Hey guys! I decided to pop in and give a little update on myself since it’s been a hot minute since I blogged. Something I have been really trying to work on lately is my mental and physical well-being and trying to figure out what is right for ME.
For years I spent my time scrolling through social media and the Web to figure out what exactly “healthy” meant. Was it going for a run every day? Lifting weights 5 times a week? Eating only chicken and broccoli? Counting macros?
Want to know what I learned from all of this? Healthy means something different for each individual.
To me, health isn’t just what you are doing, it’s also about what you are thinking and saying. To me, eating only chicken, egg whites and veggies isn’t healthy- for my own physical and mental well-being. For me, running a lot is not healthy simply because I don’t really love it nor should I be doing it until I figure out what’s wrong with my hormones.
Right now healthy means doing what I TRULY want. If that means lounging around all day,
so be it. If that means eating a box of mac and cheese to myself for lunch,
so be it. I am tired of feeling like I “SHOULD” be doing something that is working for someone else.
Life is about discovery, adventure, and experiences. Not wasting your time trying to mold yourself to be like someone else. I am trying to do what fulfills ME for once.
What my workouts have consisted of this week:
Tuesday: long trail walk with some jogging
Saturday: 45 leg workout with my mom (still sore…)
Sunday: leisurely swimming in my pool
May not seem like much to some people but I’m not here to try to impress anyone. I don’t like to workout on days that I go to work in the morning because my job is mentally and physically draining and I do not have the energy for it.
Mentally I have been up & down. I still sometimes struggle with being lazy on some days but I know that rest is very important and so is keeping stress levels down.
So tell me…
What is something you truly love to do?
Who is someone you love to workout with?
