It’s Sunday again and that means it’s Status Update time. Today’s theme.. the struggle never ends, but that’s so, so good!
Exercise… 13.5K average steps per day this past week. Below average for goal and well below average for my personal lofty expectations. A big part of this is probably the sharp drop-off of my Jazz classes. I used to get 3-6 classes a week and each one is like 5k+ steps. This past week my count of classes was ZERO. Yup.. a giant goose egg. Whatever though, I just haven’t had the time (better things to do). My routine is stale and I need to mix it up and the good weather brings more options. I don’t want to be inside dancing when I can be outside dancing!
Healthy eating.. THE single biggest frustration of my life besides relationships. I’ve lived in this body long enough to know myself really well and can predict my behaviors miles before the decisions are presented. This week was full of healthy choices followed by overindulgence and typical end of the day cheating on myself with sweets. This blog isn’t called the organic SugarCookie by random chance! 😜
Anyway. I could try to blame it on my relationship status because everyone knows you gain weight and make bad choices when you’re living large in the glow of new love, but I was doing this shit when I was alone and thinking I was going to be that way for the rest of my life. Whatever. JS thinks I look great and tells me that all the time. So what I gained a few pounds. Well.. as long as that weight gain train stops there. Sometime soon I’m going to do a deep dive on this topic. This status update has already gone on too long.
On that note.. yes, I’m still employed (flirting with full time getting 30 hours this week – gross). JS and I celebrated knowing each other 2 months this week… yaaaayas!! And I’m still in school full time (on summer break now though).
OMG.. I almost forgot sleep. People what up? I got 7 hours and 21 minutes average per night. That’s incredible.
I guess this week was pretty good despite the food and exercise things. I’m always going to struggle with balancing everything, but that’s ok. Life is wonderful and if that’s the biggest challenge I have, I’m fortunate. I know that.
And now.. without further ado.. it’s time to do this Sunday thing we do!
Peace and Love,
