Be Happy

It’s Sunday and I’m feeling really…overworked in fitness.  Maybe?

I’ve been going so hardcore lately – “upping” it in my classes, and going all out in my own personal workouts, in addition to picking up a few additional clients.  And this weekend I am paying the price.

I haven’t had a tarsal tunnel flare up in a few months but I totally overdid it this week (my own fault) and screwed myself and now my ankles have been buzzing since Thursday.  I can’t quite explain the pain to you – but it feels like ongoing electrical shocks in my ankles and at the bottom of my legs.  On top of that, my back is still going out every other day, and my hamstrings have been super tight the last few days (again, self inflicted and I should know better).

I could sit here and write about how horrible my life is and whine about “why is this happening to me?”.  But I won’t because I absolutely do not feel that way.  In fact, I feel the opposite.  I am blessed to have the ability to get up and work out each day.  I am thankful that I have a full belly each night – and that I even have the option of creating healthy meals.

Quite recently I saw a rerun of an old Judge Judy episode where one team mother was suing another team mother of their sons’ football jerseys.  The plaintiff really looked like a smug lunatic and she and her husband kept stating how “upset” they were that the uniforms weren’t what they expected.  Judge Judy then asked “Do you have healthy children?”  To which the plaintiffs responded “yes”.  Judge Judy then said if they were “upset over a uniform they were sickos” and that if they had to “deal with parents who were upset that the lettering was coming off the children’s uniforms when the children are able to run around a football field and healthy enough to do that then you’re all sickos.”

See the point?

I am thankful that I have the opportunity to better my fitness goals.  I am thankful that I have the ability to get up and lift weights and run and jump and teach classes.  I am blessed to live my life the way I do and have the option of making the choices I do.

I think positively.  I work hard.  I eat healthy.  I dance more.  I exercise daily.  I love often.  And I AM HAPPY.

Merry Fitness Christmas

Christmas Yoga

Merry Christmas to you all.

Enjoy this time with your family and loved ones.

Be safe. Be merry.

Remember it’s perfectly fine to indulge in all the wonderful treats and foods and drinks of the holidays.  Just try your best to not over do it….and if you over indulge, it’s not the end of the world.  You’ll get right back on track.

Santa be like

Yesterday All this week I’ve been indulging.  But I’ve been sure to keep up with workouts and runs and have been running up and down the stairs at work extra times to ensure I can burn off just a few more calories.

Last night I went shopping from work, then had dinner with my parents (take-out – something they never do) and then met up with some friends for a coffee date.  All I could think about all day was getting home in time to go for a run.

And that’s exactly what I did.  I ran a few miles (my best time yet, BTW), and as soon as I got home I threw up.  I over did it on the garbage treats during the day and pushed myself too hard in my run and I felt like a big bag of crap when I got home.

Try not to let this happen.

Merry Christmas!!  Looking forward to the new year.
