Getting myself back on track

      2 Comments on Getting myself back on track

January was kind of a wash for me in regards to walking. When my grandpa passed in early January, that sorta took the wind out if my sails and I just stopped walking everyday. I was also experiencing high levels of anxiety and that only made things worse. I was averaging about 80 miles a month and I just bombed in January. I’ve cut myself some slack and I’m not beating myself up over it. Beating myself up over it serves no purpose. What I am going to do is correct this going forward.

That being said, I made myself go walking this afternoon and it went pretty well. It was cold but not too bad. I’m glad I went and was able to grab about 3.1 miles..

It felt good to be back at it and I intend to continue moving in the right direction. I want to continue to improve my body and overall health. I haven’t set a weight loss goal for the year but I think 30 lbs is a solid target.

Anyway, I’m looking forward to getting back out tomorrow and get another 3.1 miles under my belt. ☺

Just a gentle reminder that selfcare is extremely important and you need to find time for yourself. If you need a reminder about selfcare or its importance, check out my podcast below because I spend some time talking about it..

    January in Ohio is a winter month. So having bad weather on top of your other events makes it understandable you missed walking. But now you get to start this month.
