I was traveling last week and didn't have control over my own schedule while I was away, so I only got a few 30 min workouts done in a hotel fitness
Until my foot started to feel funny. No gory details here, but the short story is that I've hobbled around w/ blisters on my foot for a few days after going barefoot through airport security. And I'd guess those "antimicrobial mats" I stood on weren't germ-free. Enough said. So week #2 is a loss. Or is it?
Everyone gets injured, sick, sidetracked. Instead of being frustrated and beating myself up I realized this is a great opportunity to focus on something else. Food perhaps? Not just eating, but what and how? I've heard different experts in the fitness industry suggest that working out is about being fit and strong. But to really get lean you need to focus on your eating- the quality and quantity. Not so easy with two kids hanging onto their Halloween candy.
Rewind briefly to a telephone call a few months ago when I was complaining about my weight and the person I was talking with, who knows me much too well, said "Kim, you know exactly why you're not losing weight". And you know, I do know. I know the information- I've studied it for years. But as many of us know all to well, making it happen day-to-day is a different story. I keep getting closer to losing the emotional connection to food and instead making smart choices that honors my body and where I want to be. So no, I didn't log in workouts this week. But I did drink more water, snacked less, and ate more slowly. Getting closer every day.
