Basically since finding out I was moving to Chicago, I’ve been slowly finding new reasons I’m beyond happy to be moving on, literally. But during that same time, I’ve found myself struggling with staying my usual healthy self.
Morning workouts have felt like the equivalent of being asked to run a marathon with no training, which means I’ve been not doing them. I’ve been eating fairly healthy, but have been overthinking what and when I’m eating, to the point of eating too much, and too much of certain things (read: avocado and nut butters).
This morning after my usual news shows ended, I shut off the TV, brewed some coffee and headed out to enjoy my new patio furniture. I put on iTunes Radio Singer-Songwriters channel, and caught up on email, wrote out my Extreme Shred workouts in my training journal, and made my grocery list.
As I enjoyed the fresh air, and perfect coffee, I suddenly felt calm.
My soul felt quiet, content, ready to return to normal. I realized that I’m always so worrying about what needs to be done, what I should be doing, or what show I could catch up on, that in what feels like a year, I haven’t just sat down and enjoyed what I have, what I am, and thought about what I want.
For the first time in a long time, I feel ready to really take on life again. And it starts today. Not tomorrow, not next Monday, but today.
