I've had a pretty eventful summer.. i didn't go on vacation or anything, but, it was full of growth, new experiences, epiphanies and reality checks.
I got a new fitbit! I absolutely love love love it! I got the charge2. talk about motivation?! I love the community there also. Very nice bunch of folks :)
I am growing in my Yoga practice! I am learning so much about myself. I have come to the conclusion that....I am a badass. hands down. I rock. :)
I am losing weight! Slowly, but surely! 1 pound is a victory for me. Even ounces tell me i am workin' it.
I enjoy my many non scale victories deeply. i dropped a size this summer. I can do the bleacher steps at the track I walk at without feeling like my lungs are going to burst out of my throat! I feel stronger. I have more energy. My underwear fit better. !!!! Yeah i said it.
I am eating better i think. I am making good food choices without thinking. I crave salads. Yeah you read it right. i crave salads.
I am learning about the quality of my food. I have cut down on meat/meat products to a few times a week. I am leaning towards plant based/flexitarian. Flexitarian is totally a word. Look it up. I did. and I was amazed.
I joined a gym! I needed to plan ahead for the winter months when the weather won't allow me to be outside. I actually went today. Got 3.5 miles in on the treadmill @ 3 miles an hour. I had a good time. yep. True story.
I learned to make a killer lentil burger. Even the meat eaters here at home love them. No lie.
It was a productive summer, but it was also filled with challenges. My asthma started acting up. I've been trying to reduce my asthma meds. I fear i am dependent on them. I know i am. i have been asthmatic since i was a child, and i don't feel like giving big pharma anymore of my money. If anyone knows any natural remedies i can try. Please let me know.
My reality check for the summer? Things are not always what they seem. Real Talk.
I love me. I am a badass. Did i mention that?
