We’ve all had setbacks or fallen off the fitness wagon, well most of us I think anyway. Once I’m in a good rhythm I stay that way, but I’ve been having trouble getting into a good routine again. I decided this week I’d switch it up, get back on track with my blogging, and share my best ideas for getting back on track.
I bought myself a Zwift Hub for my Christmas gift. I do NOT know what I’m doing at all. I mean it’s true you don’t forget how to ride a bike, but the gears and all the other crap that comes with biking stress me the hell out. It’s kept me from really getting into biking. Running is easy. I am completely moronic with biking.
I just want to lay here and cry. Everything hurts. My elbow hurts. I made my Ortho doc look at my elbow while at work and he diagnosed me with tennis elbow. He said it’s pretty common after using crutches. I just want to be back to normal.
I left you all last week all excited to take on the world. I went down to my basement and tried out my cheap rowing machine that I had purchased knowing that I’d be unable to run for a while. I was so surprised and happy that I could use it with my boot on and it didn’t strain my foot or ankle at all. I thought my week was going to go perfectly!
Last week I started blogging my gratitude journal. I’ve attempted a gratitude journal in the past, but this time around it has been easier. I’ve been tracking symptoms, sleep, and mood. Each day when I track symptoms I also track down something I’m grateful for. At first, I was just doing it daily when I was prompted to track symptoms. Now, every time I have one of those “Oh, I’m so glad this went this way instead of that way” moments I open up my phone and jot it down.
Thanks for reading my 5. It’s been a horrid week and I really wanted to participate in this week’s Friday Five. I’m so happy I managed to work in the time for this.
Making time for journaling and blogging is also a big self-care for me. This one is shorter than I’d have liked, but I squeezed in a little time for blogging this morning.
