What happens when you get serious with a former cross country runner and you’re terrible at running? He wants to teach you, that’s what. So this week we have started running. I wish I could say I’m loving it but the first couple days have been a serious challenge for me. I let my past with running get in my own way and I recognize that so starting today I’m just going to think positively and see where that gets me. On the up side there are other things to do at the gym like lift and I LOOOVVVE lifting. It’s something I had to do in high school for sports and I just fell in love with it. I’m a little sad that I missed the opportunity to be using the gym here at school for the past couple years (stupid social anxiety) but I’m excited to be back to it! I’m glad he’s pushing me to improve because I needed the jump start right now. Every day is a new day and a chance to improve and that’s what I’m going to do. I am very determined this time!
I’m also very proud of myself because I realized yesterday that I have been eating clean consistently for two months. Of course there have been some off days but that’s to be expected with anything. I think it’s really helping that I started eating clean first and am now getting in to working out because if I had started it all at the same time I would have gotten overwhelmed and discouraged!
