This past Sunday I went to my husbands baseball game and I was amazed to see these men, ranging from 25 to 55, playing baseball and staying active. It was great to see all these guys get out of the house and play sports. Many men, especially older men, start to get lazy as they get older and would rather sit on a couch and drink all day. I was happy to see my husband and all his teammates have that competitive spirit and really put their all into the game. In the end they lost the game, but they didn’t let their spirits down and they amped each other up for the next game. There are so many sports that adults can get into, but they just need to look online and find local sports clubs around them. Since I am moving to VA soon I started going onto Meetup.com to find different outdoor activities
Below is a recap of Aurora and I Fitness Re-cap. There is nothing really good to recap and you will see why? LOL
We have a renewed motivation now and this is because of our co-worker, Jackie. She started her journey to a healthy lifestyle and I have never met someone with so much discipline, Amazing!!!! So, we are bringing back and harder then ever. Lets see what happens.
Can I just say it is always great when you fall and you are able to pick yourself back up again. I have been reading through some of my favorite health blogs and it seems these past few months have been rough for ALL of us. But the true test of ones dedication to their healthy lifestyle is being able to pick themselves back up again.
Believe me it is rough. The past month has been a struggle, trying getting myself back in my old routine of daily exercise and consistent healthy eating habits. Around day two and three I would just give up and feel sorry for myself. Thankfully, this past week I have been able to pick myself back up again and get myself going. I tried to think about what helped me get back in the game and a few things came to mind.
1.Reading health blogs: Reading other blogs helped me realte to other women.
2. Observing how my body feels: When I start feeling groggy and sleepy all the time I know it has to do with the quality of food that I am eating and me not going to the gym.
3. Clothes: When my pants start to feel a little tight that is usually when I pick myself up real quick.
4. Sadness: When I start to feel sad and almost depressed I know alot of it has to do with my Health. Being healthy for me is meditative, I feel a sense of balance.
These are just a few things, but I am sure there is more.
So those who are feeling down and out, find what works for you and make sure you write down and place it somewhere where you can see it everyday for constant motivation.
