Forging ahead

in Fitness, Just life

How has it been more than two months since I last blogged? That’s crazy! So much has happened lately and life has been a bit of a roller coaster. Forgive the random thoughts that are about to follow.

My workouts were going pretty well until the weather changes brought on my annual allergy and sinus junk. I was so congested, and coughing, and just UGH. Breathing was hard enough without adding vigorous activity to it! Today was my first workout in a little over a week and it felt so good to sweat and get the heart rate up!

We’ve had a good deal of cold and rain lately, and that put my half marathon training to a halt. I don’t mind a little rain, but cold rain is a deal breaker! This weekend the sun is shining and I have a date with a running buddy tomorrow. Looking forward to getting back out there!

The biggest change in my life right now has definitely had an impact on my eating and workouts. I decided to make a career change after being in my current position for 11.5 years. I was offered a job on March 26 and gave my four-week notice to my boss the next morning. This was not an easy decision for me and I’ve been looking for the right ‘new’ position for a few months. While I did spend a few hours feeling excited and sharing my news with a few people, the next few hours were a little more stressful as I planned what I would say to my boss and how I would go through with leaving the first and only professional job I’ve had.

I’ve noticed that my stress level has already decreased in the two weeks since giving my notice. I’ve also not only cut back on my eating, but there have been several days that I don’t really have an appetite and don’t have a serious craving for something specific. I’ve always been an emotional eater, and two reasons I would eat were to procrastinate or if I was feeling stressed. I haven’t done either of those in a few weeks and it feels pretty good!

I’m getting back on track Monday with the 21 Day Fix eating plan, because I know it’s just as important to not under eat as it is to not over eat. Looking forward to feeling more in control and ready to face my new future!
