Reset and Re-focus

The past two week I slacked off a bit. I skipped out on exercising five days. I wanted to take a break and also rework my planner (and my mind), and use a different layout. I decided to go with Passion Planner’s undated daily layout instead of the weekly. I‘m also using it for journaling and adding my Bible study plans as inserts. I decided to drop the walking in the morning for now. I like walking but I just enjoy it when it’s in a scenic environment, not in a neighborhood or on a treadmill. And it was too much for me to walk in the morning and then workout again in the afternoon. So instead I’m going to stick with yoga every day but do my strength training workout three days a week and the flexibility workout the other four days.

I need to get back on track before I make slacking off a habit again. So today is my reset day. I’m going to stick with my routine and re-focus on things that are important to me. I’ve already started making a list of video ideas for my YouTube channel. Some are more on the artistic side, some more on the comedic side. They pop up so well in my head. I just hope I can execute them well on screen. LOL.

Doing Less is Okay

I decided to change my workout plan. Today I was tired…seasonal allergies slowing me down a bit these past few days plus menstrual hormones were sucking the life out of me. I actually took a nap this afternoon. LOL. So I decided to do half of my strength training workout but still committed to yoga. I decided that I’m going to do a strength training workout only on Sundays, flexibility on Saturdays, and still walk during the week and do yoga every day. At first I felt a little discouraged but then I was like why? I’m trying to improve my health, not to reach a certain weight or dress size. And I’m still working out more than 30 minutes every day so I’m burning calories and closing my exercise ring. Had this been years ago, even last year, I would have let the discouragement take over and quit altogether. I’m learning to find what works for me and to also be kind to myself. Doing less is okay because it’s so much more than doing nothing at all.
