More reflecting on the challenge... :)

It has been kind of quiet here.. so hope everyone is doing well and the challenge is doing positive, good things for them, whatever their goals were.

I had kinda aggressive goals.. which I wanted, but didn't do too well the past week becuase frankly I had too many other goals, too.
I had some ambitious working goals and also faith related goals. I was getting up at 5 am to work out so exhausted completley by evening. Burning the candle at both ends. Eating for comfort, not hunger. Not smart.

So I cut back on a little of everything- that I was pushing myself with. I am playing more. Spending more time with the kids. I feel more refreshed already. I feel this is more doable now. I am going to work out again mid morning which I felt I could not before because itw as 'work hours'. Well, I don't care. Work can work around me!

I also changed my workouts, like you Leonie. Something new and different.

So, back to healthy eating... and working out. Hope it sticks a little better. I really do love how I feel when I stick to it, but then it is about ebb and flow.. right?
