Okay! It may have taken me almost the entire length of this challenge to actually get into the groove of things, but things have been great the past two weeks, or so. I’ve been working out with kettlebells, using that Lauren Brooks program I told y’all ‘bout, and I’ve been going to spin classes about twice a week.
I’ve also been eating pretty well!
This was breakfast, the other day.
Like, really, pretty well!
This was dinner, the other night.
I did go out of town on a mini vacation last weekend, so alcohol was had, as well as a bit of bread and dairy. But, it was back to business as usual, by Monday. No extended vacation, whatsoever. And, I didn’t go totally ballnutz whilst I was on my trip, either. I made mostly good choices.
Due to some pretty significant turmoil in my personal life, exercise has really been my savior. It has, quite literally, become my antidepressant. I’ve been feeling really low– dangerously on the cusp of depression (a feeling I know all too well, as a prolonged bout with depression led to a major weight gain and my absence from YouTube from 2013-2014). Needless to say, I really don’t want to go to that place again.
But, I feel a tiny bit better, with each passing day, and even more better [sic], with each passing workout. For real, the post-workout endorphins lift me up SO MUCH, that I can temporarily put any darkness out of my mind, because I feel…good. Don’t get me wrong– I still loathe spin class. But I love how I feel, after it!
There’s just over a week left, before this challenge ends on the 26th. I’m not excited to share results, since I won’t really have any. I am, however, looking forward to building on this momentum, and getting, I don’t know, #Snached4Spring???
