I've been on a bit of a hiatus, especially over the past three weeks. My five day yoga/running/crossfit workouts have slipped to four then to two and I am feeling a major difference. All over.
My body is a bit more sluggish, my skin is slightly suffering, I don't feel as energetic as I previously have (and I have some serious energy, people) and it's easier to make bad food choices for some reason when I'm not hitting the gym as hard. An afternoon Pepsi? Pop tarts for breakfast from the vending machine? This is SO not me.

With the summer slowly winding down over the next month and in prep for my European adventure in 34 days, it's back to focusing on getting on schedule with my workouts and clean eating like something fierce.
Am I going to beat myself up for falling off the wagon? Hell no.
Am I going to stop going out? Hell no.
Am I going to be better at balancing? Hell yes.
In June, I made some serious progress with my trainer and friend Shelley with her Pure Shelley training program with crossfitting twice a week with two days of running and one yoga class. I saw a difference (total inches to be posted in another month), learned so much from her about how I need to increase my intensity and can't lose that feeling because of a few weeks of being slightly off track.
No way, Jose.
|Isn't that the truth?|
It's time to get back on the damn track.
Here I go.
