Sometimes we all have unrealistic expectations of how our results should be. Like when we expect after a month of intense workouts to undue the damage of years of unhealthy habits and injuries. It’s not going to happen and it took me a week of intense brooding and my husband to finally get that through my head.
Soon after I started beating myself up for not pushing hard enough, I vented on Fitocracy. I lovely Fito friend reminded me this is part of a journey and this is only the start.
I started the summer out strong. Found my weaknesses, worked around injuries and got help for my long term injury that was preventing me from pushing too hard. Cleaned out my fridge, cook on a regular basis and now lean towards “healthier” options without too much thinking. And now that I think about it, that’s a lot. I went from junking out every other day to actually getting up and moving for an hour AND eating healthier. How was that not enough? Just ‘cause the scale didn’t reflect it? Just ‘cause I was expecting instant results?
My body is awesome and it’s feeling better everyday and I should LOVE that. This is just the beginning and we all know that beginnings are usually the hardest.
