I hope that this is the last day that I have to work around an injury. I feel like I am ready to do some light lifting and cardio again, and resume this journey the way that I envisioned it! In Episode 7 I do 90 minutes of yoga, some core work, and have a walk. I think I’m ready.
Today I was able to do 15 minutes each of cardio and yoga, but I did pay for it a little bit at night. I did not get much footage of the day, but did have some reflection about wellness: desiring wellness is a big deal in a society that values illness.
Today was a struggle. Another day without being able to exercise sent me into a spiral and having a small treat of chocolate triggered me into old patterns.
Today I tried my best to completely rest. It was very challenging to not do the things that I wanted to do, but I tried to keep my back in a resting mode throughout the day in hopes that I can return to exercise again soon.
In Episode 2 I try to keep my movement to a minimum due to a back injury, but I end up causing more pain.
I decided to start a YouTube daily vlog to reflect on my wellness journey of diet, fitness, and mindfulness. I am already four episodes in, but did not post on this website yet! So, stay tuned for the first few episode saturating this site for a moment. Please follow on YouTube if you would like to stay up-to-date (and I will try to remember to post here, too).
