I just looked back and realized I haven't updated this blog since April. Makes sense, because that's right about the time I fell off the wagon in my diet and exercise regime.
It really defies common sense. When I was working out, practicing yoga regularly, and eating reasonable healthily, I felt happier, more mentally alert, and much more patient with my fellow human beings.
But once I started falling off the wagon, it felt impossible to claw my way back on. This led to less energy to exercise or run. So my descent continued.
I did find a new yoga studio that I like okay. I still do want to try crossfit, but I'm afraid I will physically die if I try.
And I'm trying to decide if I want to try weight watchers with a friend, or if I just want to go back to My Fitness Pal, which was very successful for me before.
I absolutely hate people who are constantly getting super excited about the next big weight loss thing, only to drop off of it a week later, so I have tried just to not even discuss my setback and how blue I'm feeling about it.
I don't like to be perceived as feeling sorry for myself, and that's not really how I'm feeling about it. More like, just irritated with myself because I know I can do it, I have done it, but I won't do it.
But I'm definitely working my mind around to doing it again. I signed up with some really great friends to run the Princess in February so I need to get my head in the game. Getting picked up by the "slow people" cart would absolutely suck.
