OK – not really. That lyric does say something about how I’ve been feeling lately though. Not in a bad way. Just in an all over the place way.
Anyway, I digress.
Reminder (to you and me): this is a fitness and health journey blog. Fitness and health done MY way. Yes, I learn from others, but you have to do and keep what works for YOU.
I haven’t written since this past November. I really need to do better. Writing helps. Writing helps keep me accountable – sometimes. It helps me express my joy, frustration and excitement – among other things. Now, for the CONFESSION!
Over the holidays, I indulged. Actually, I’m just getting to the point of stopping the indulgences. UGH. So hard to stop once you’ve started. I treat it as a mind game though. I’ve got to trick myself into NOT indulging. Or basically slap my own hand. Now, I never stopped working out, but the indulgences took me back physically, mentally and emotionally.
With an AI disease, foods that are not “on your plan” don’t only affect you physically. They can affect your mood too. Now, that doesn’t happen to everyone that has an AI disease. Food + AI diseases are very personal. Like with the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP). It’s not meant to be a forever meal plan/diet. You’re supposed to eventually reintroduce foods that work for YOUR body.
Anyway, I’m really getting away from what I meant to be talking about. I’m re-committing to me. Eating the foods I know I should eat. Staying away from the ones that I shouldn’t. Exercise isn’t my problem. I get in 3-4 days per week on the exercise. Now, if I could only stick to weight training…..LOL! I did it ONCE last month. *sigh*
So, in summary, I need to eat what I’m supposed, not eat what I shouldn’t and continue exercising. Got it. Always easier said than done.
Again, writing helps. I should it more often. Perhaps my next entry will be a little less fragmented.
