Mid January Re-Focus

There is a certain day in January that recognized as the day most people quit their resolutions. I think I might have hit that earlier than normal.

It’s been a weird start of the new year:

  • I had taken a flu shot, but still “caught” a bit of something.
  • I participated in an awesome healthy living / self care / meditation / yoga workshop, but ended up having back spasms on the way home. From driving??? Not sure. It took a couple of days with hot rice bags and stretches to get the kinks out.
  • Signed up for a “biggest loser” challenge at the gym. And in 2 weeks, somehow I’ve gained 2.4 pounds. (Honestly, I think it is salt and timing.)
  • Snow fall the last few days have resulted in more steps than the earlier weeks as I cleared the driveway, but has left me with cabin fever.

How I’m refocusing to get my head out of the funk:

  • I am replaying the most recent podcast episode about fighting processed food addictions. Wow. This one is hard to ignore!
  • Feeling discouraged, I did a “quick” summary of 2019 doctor visits and tests. (30 for my mom, 6 for my dad and 4 for me.) No wonder I’m feeling my focus has shifted.
  • Improving my workouts, circuit training, spinning, and light jogging. It’s easier now that I feel like I kicked that bug I caught.
  • Re looking at my words: Grateful/Habit Cue/Declutter
  • Entering and tracking my food in MyFitnessPal

Not the healthiest lunch when processed wrap and processed cheese meets tomato with oregano. Tomorrow will be better.

  1. I have also had to do a late January evaluation and reboot.
    Wasn’t ready on the 1st.
    Thank you for the last podcast episode. It helped me remember and refocus a bit.

    1. The second half of January has been better for me than the first half. Here’s to onward and upward for 2020! Thanks for your comment Ren!
