I have been working out and eating well but I haven’t been doing either as well as I could. I work out but I don’t push myself. I find myself taking breaks when I know I have more push in me. I let things interfere with my work out and then tell myself I just didn’t have time to get that work out in. When it comes to the food, I have been better but not good. I am partaking in the catered in lunches at work, I used to always bring my lunch even if we were having lunch catered in. I walk past the candy dish at work and grab a mini candy bar, I don’t even like chocolate (yes, you read that right I don’t care for chocolate).
However, with all that said I think that I finally have gotten my drive back! This past weekend I received a package in the mail. When I opened it, much to my surprise I received a handmade cross stich asking me to be a bridesmaid in my brother and future sister-in-laws wedding. I could not have been more honored! I am a crier so of course I cried! But this is exactly what I needed, something to focus on.
So, starting today I am going to be a little bit more diligent about what I eat and push myself through my workouts. I have already put in 13,030 steps for the day which because I am short and have short stride is 5.22 miles. I have made it a goal to get at least 5 miles worth of steps each day. I have been a Fitbit wearer for two year and when I was running daily it wasn’t hard to get at least 5 miles a day but now that I have taken a break from running I really have to push myself to get to 5 miles. When I get home this evening, I will be getting my workout in as well. I love how I feel after a workout so I am not sure why I had been phoning it in but that stops today! Here is to a renewed focus!
What makes you push yourself?
