Just keep moving
Unfortunately I have always been an all or nothing kind of girl. I either give everything I have towards something, or I walk away. If I believe in something I fight, way past common sense.
In many things, this is healthy. I have fought with everything I have to get the weight off. I love the people in my life with my heart and soul.
In other things, this does not work in my favor, and I need to be reminded that slow and steady are also beneficial.
My energy level is slowly coming up… We have a long way to go!!!! My tendency is to burn it all up when I have it… Because I never know when I will have it again. Today, I got back on my bike for the first time in a VERY long time. My legs are strong…. So I was all set to push hard…. A little voice told me, take it easy… Let’s go slow, do a few miles and build… (That would be my hubby’s voice!)
Yesterday I rode just a few miles, and we took our time… It felt AMAZING! And I am not wiped out… I drank plenty of water, and had a chocolate drink mix as soon as we finished. Today my bum hurts, and I am going to just chill out!!!!
Baby steps… Gotta go slow so I don’t go backwards!!!!!
