Happy New Year… Yes, really.
Wow, y’all. It’s March. How did that happen? I, for one, feel like the first two months of 2015 were a total blur, probably owing to the fact that I was recuperating from surgery that kept me from exercising or typing more than 10 words at a time. Couple that with the snow that we’ve had, and I’ve been a physical and mental hermit for 2015.
Well, NO MORE! The first two weeks of March have been good, I’ve been trying new workouts (that don’t stress my wrist), logging my food, doing videos for Crazy Fit Mama, cleaning my house (what?!?!), taking my girl to the playground, finishing my fitness studio (I’ve got a virtual tour coming for you soon), and teaching classes left and right.
Apparently, my new year doesn’t start until March. Sound familiar?
Maybe we can all petition to get New Year’s Day moved to March 1st.
I mean really, who wouldn’t love to get a mental fresh start when it actually resembles Spring outside?
(I’ll start writing my Congressman as soon as I’m done here.)
I’m still dealing with some consequences of my hermit life.
1. I have a half marathon next Sunday that I haven’t logged the right number of miles for (yup, the treadmill isn’t my friend either), but I’ve been doing lots of cross training, and I feel like good overall conditioning will help me survive.
2. I still can’t do a pushup with my bum wrist, nor a handstand, but I’m getting really good at push ups on my knuckles, and am trying to rock a forearm-stand. #giveit100 #gladitdoesnthavetobeconsecutive
3. My body has somehow decided that it needs 9 hours of sleep every night. Yes, I go to bed early. Yes, I lay awake for at least an hour. Yes, I’ve cut out caffeine in the evening. I blame it on being a mom. I used to sleep like a rock for 6-7 hours and be good to go. Ahh, youth is totally wasted on the young.
4. I CAN OVERCOME ALL THESE THINGS!!! I am awesome. I am worth investing time and energy on myself. It’s never too late to start, or re-start, or re-re-start.
(So are you!)
