Today is a get it back on track day and will most definitely involve water, chicken and Kale!
(Let's hope there are no more snow days in 2022 :))
I signed up for 3 of my races yesterday and I am looking forward to each of them! While I am not fast I feel much more prepared at this time that I have in quite awhile. The physical act of signing up was what made them all the more real. These things are happening with or without my preparation, so it is definitely time to prepare.
Last week was given an assignment and that was to skim through 2 books from our class and grab an idea and bring it to class.
The first book that I really thought I was going to like I ended up disliking. It was one of those books that asks a question and then gives you like a paragraph in response. Questions like "What is the different in Keto and Paleo?" It would go on to give the answer but at the very end would throw a little jab in there like.. but neither are good for you. "Will you lose weight on Keto?" The answer was Probably, but... I just can't get into a book that had so much negative opinionated answers in it. It was so full of yes buts I never did fully grasp what type of eating or plan they supported. This is something I believe.. there is no one right plan for anyone.. just like religion or politics I am not going to knock what you have found to be right for you.. because I am me and we certainly don't wear the same size jeans so how could I be the one saying "Your jeans don't fit right"
What did I find in book two. It was a 10 minutes to a better you type book. I liked the lay out it had photos and exercises that were grouped together nicely. I am going to happily hand this book on to my mom as I think she could find some useful sets and they are very well illustrated so easier to follow along than just the words of raise your left foot behind your right shoulder and wiggle your fingers. But again the book was not for me. There were so many 10 sets of doings that it was overwhelming to me. Do this 10 minutes to flatten your stomach, do this 10 minutes to destress, do this 10 minutes for a nicer bum.. you get the point... by the point I was done flipping through the book I had enough 10 minutes to take up 3 hours and that wasn't helping me at all.
I did learn through reading these books that I do like and believe in my plan. The "diet" I follow and my work out schedule work for me when I work the plan I just need to dig deep and get it done.
Hope you enjoyed the snow as much as I did!
Peace Love and Light
