My journey to a healthier me

Tales of my life

Struggling to get back into routine

on May 11, 2013

I’ve back from my trip to Arizona for a few days now but I’m struggling. Struggling to get back into my routine. Struggling to get back to normal. The day after I returned, I was at the gym. But it was hard. I barely managed to get through some cardio. The next day seemed just as hard. Tyler and I worked outside for the first time this year. We did hill runs. Although Tyler said I got my best time ever, I felt like I struggled badly. Why do things seem so much harder when we return after time off? I think the “old” me would have given up this week. But the “new” me doesn’t want to. The new me wants to keep going, to get back to what I should be doing. So why is it so hard? Why do I sometimes feel like I can’t do it? And it’s not just my workouts. I’m struggling to get back to my normal eating patterns too. I’m trying not to be hard on myself. I was gone for more than a week, so I know it will take time to get back into the swing of things. I just have to keep that in my head and do my best each day. And turn to my support crew when I feel like I’m slipping. And hopefully that will work.

    It’s wonderful that you’re sticking to it, though. Struggling is part of the journey but the best thing ever is that you don’t give up. 🙂
