Reset, Recharge & Refocus

You can't live a positive life with a negative mind.
I had this big post started where I was explaining how terrible I have been feeling lately and how much it has affected my posting, life, etc. But quite honestly, I hate how negative it sounds. I have been feeling like a big black cloud lately. My current treatment has been really tough and sometimes I can't get out of my own head. But I have decided....ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

I am making the decision that I'm not going to let this cycle of negativity to continue. I took a week off of my workouts and social media in general (with the exception of my groups of course). And I think it was exactly what I needed. I am back on track this week and easing back into my routine.

I also decided tonight that I have really been missing running. I didn't realize it until I had gotten into my zone and starting thinking back to when everything felt 'in line'. That was when I made running part of my weekly schedule. I really love my morning workouts. I love pushing my body to its limits. But as a stay-at-home mom, it is not often that I have alone time. When I'm running, I get to be alone. Even if I am running with a friend, it is still different because we are generally quiet and I can spend time with my thoughts. There is a lot to be said to be able to spend time just being, letting your mind wander, and getting lost in the music. So I have made the commitment to myself to make it a priority again. Hopefully it will help me with my journey to become centered again. :)

So that's it. That's what has been going on. For anyone who has been following me and wonders where I have been, there is your explanation.

The funny thing about a health journey is that it is ever evolving. It is never really done. There is always room for improvement and new things that you can do to keep yourself moving forward. I love the challenge and I look forward to seeing what the future holds!

Sometimes the people around you won't understand your journey. They don't need to. It's not for them.
