Back To It and My Cutie

  I have said EFF IT!
I started running again.  Actually jogging...
Scratch that, I walk fast with a hop.
I was getting really down on myself.
I felt fat, and lazy.
I needed to do something, so I went for a jog and iced real well after. 
Pause for a cute picture.
My little cutie, Penny always feels as though she needs to be on top of me.
Literally all the time.
After my run. Icing my knee.

Back to the important stuff...
A constant battle in my life is equilibrium.
I have been struggling with this since I was younger.
I haven't found a happy medium.
It is strange how happy I get from helping people out, but it is also a handicap for me.
I can't balance helping with my own life...
If I help, I go all out and you could take everything from me before I realize.
It has happened to me multiple times in this past year.
I can't balance time, money, exercise, diet, etc.
For a few months I'll be a beast, and I love working out, then a switch goes off and I don't want to move a muscle.
It is the same with my diet.
I love food, I love junk food, but with the fluxuation of exercise I end up feeling guilty and my diet ends up fluxuating as well.
My biggest goal is to find balance.
Equilibrium (noun): a state in which opposing forces or influences are balanced.
Synonyms: balance, symmetry, equipoise, parity, equality
I need to make this a priority.

  1. Good for you for "running" that's more than I've been doing! I need to get out of the house but I'm so busy that when I'm home I just want to lounge!

    1. Thanks Hannah! I am really just trying to convince myself it is more important to take care of my body than do laundry daily...haha
