These past two weeks, I’ve learned a few new things about me. Just when I thought I had myself figured out……(kidding ;-))
I figured I’d let you guys in on it because maybe you can relate. Or maybe not.
I’ve obviously been learning new things since the day I was born, but the past 2 years, I feel I have learned more than I could have ever imagined. This includes ALL aspects of my life, but for your sanity sake, I will just stick to fitness/nutrition related.
– I feel like I’ve realized this before, but never to the extent that I do now. Happiness plays such an important role in how successful you will be in this health journey(for some, not all..). The problem is you don’t really believe that until you are happy. Then you know. I’m not saying I wasn’t happy, because believe me I have a LOT to be thankful for. What I can say, is that ever since I decided to start working on my mind instead of my body, I have been happier than I’ve been in a long time.
Note to self: A happy mind= a healthy mind. Noted.
–Something food related that I learned. I don’t like how complex carbs make me feel. In small amounts, they are fine, but I am learning that I do much better when I eat a shit-load of veggies as my carbs. Sweet potatoes and oats make me feel very weighed down. Brown rice seems to be okay, so I will probably shift to eating that and quinoa more.
-The more on track I am with my health, the more on track I am with the rest of my life. Can’t even describe how productive I have been these last few weeks!
I’m sure there are things I’m missing, but those were the ones that I thought about today.
Yesterday’s boot camp was hard. I felt like I got pushed really hard and I could feel the effects of the workout for the whole rest of the day. I absolutely LOVE getting my ass handed to me. Nothing like a workout that just annihilates me 🙂
