Uncategorized Jun 11, 2024

Ah, my back is finally feeling better. I would say I am at 95%. There are a few movements where I am like oof, what is that, no thank you.

 

I went to my running class today and just walked the entire class. When it came time to do weights, I opted for 7.5lbs weights or dropping them and...

Hurt my back = no running today

Uncategorized Jun 10, 2024

Welp, my back still hurts. It's definitely gotten better.

 

I've been walking and stretching and foam rolling and icing and heating and laying.

 

Today I slept in and didn't go to run class, so instead I went for a 1 mile walk so I could check off that I did something instead of...

I hurt my back

Uncategorized Jun 09, 2024

Ugh, I hurt my back.

 

I had such a great week off from work! I went to my running gym and either walked and ran every morning. And I got so much sleep. And then we went to a new Crossfit gym, and we went 2x during the week and 1x on Saturday morning.

 

15 mins into the workout, I hurt...

Showing up

Uncategorized Jun 06, 2024

Today I let myself sleep in a little but still went to class. I've noticed on Saturday mornings, I don't go to class and I feel tired the whole freaking morning. So even though I didn't want to go to class today, I still went, it woke me up, and I get to feel energized, happy, and proud.

Procrastination, spending a lot of time getting ready

Uncategorized Jun 05, 2024

I was reading You Are a Badass today, and she was talking about how we spend a lot of time getting ready to do the thing instead of just doing the thing already. We spend time prepping and shopping and organizing and making things look pretty instead of just taking some sort of real action that...

Forgiving yourself and moving forward

Uncategorized Jun 04, 2024

It's been almost 3 months since Jameson died, and when I look back on the time, I sometimes feel shame that I didn't accomplish more in my life, and then I remember my dog of 17 years died, and I was actually doing the best that I could with what I had.

If you're stuck, examine your stories

Uncategorized May 30, 2024

If you're stuck, examine your stories.

 

What are you telling yourself about why you can't have, you can't be, or you can't do the thing?

 

Your stories can hold you back and prevent you from having the thing, being the person, or doing the thing.

Waiting until the 1st of the month to start again

Uncategorized May 29, 2024

We went on another mini trip last week! About 1 hour into the 3 hour car ride, I realized I left my computer at home and wouldn't have a way to blog. Womp, womp. Today is my first day back home, and I was eager to blog. It was missing in my day last week.

 

What's interesting is I could have...

Showing up is enough

Uncategorized May 23, 2024

I was getting in my head about how I am not doing enough, and I'm tired. Exhausted. No, just showing up is enough.

 

There are times in life when you have all the time and energy to go above and beyond.

 

And the other 95% of the time, you just need to show up.

 

And that is...

You are not your past

Uncategorized May 22, 2024

It's okay and normal if you've never accomplished the goal you're working on. That's why you're working on it.

 

And just because you haven't been able to accomplish it before doesn't mean you can't figure it out now.

 

Everything is a struggle or a challenge until we figure it out.
