Now that I’m moved into my new room (thanks to a ton of help from a few awesome friends) and no longer have impending homelessness or apartment hunting or packing or moving to cloud my thoughts, I can finally turn a little bit of my focus to eating well and exercising again.
Of course, this plan comes right along with the arrival of holiday gift baskets from vendors at work, which puts a bit of a hindrance on the “eating better” part since I apparently have lost all self control/apparently love shortbread.
But tonight after work I went to the gym and ran one mile on the treadmill (10:20) and went to yoga. The class ended up being PERFECT for me (I had to make some modifications because between losing strength/flexibility/practice and gaining weight, boy am I terrible at yoga!) I think I’m going to make an attempt to go to yoga 3x/week for a few weeks and see how that affects the way my hip feels on a day to day basis.
Currently at home, eating a brown rice with tofu and broccoli in a homemade spicy peanut sauce for dinner.
I guess I owe about 6 shame selfies for my skipped runstreak runs, but chances are I’m going to have to miss a few more because of my hip and needing to ease back into fitness. I’ll do my best, but no sense in worsening a problem just for the principle of running every day! Maybe once my hip is more reliable I’ll try this again.
