Sparkles & Spinach

So I had a couple of personal milestones the last weeks and also have been doing a lot of thinking. I strike my 1 year tag living my Fit lifestyle and I also changed 35 within a couple weeks of each other. This brought a great deal of positives and a few negative feelings for me. I truly believe as Bloggers, that it’s easy to lose yourself unintentionally in “gaining a brave face”. Myself being included in this. I don’t do it because I don’t want to share with you or because I want to pretend I’m something I’m not.

Life isn’t all sunshine and rainbows 24/7. I’m generally just a positive person and training myself never to dwell on the negative continues me blissful for the most part. This past year I went for my yearly check-up and my Doc was worried about my slightly greater than normal heartrate.

Even though I tend to get very anxious at the Doctors, I still required this very significantly. With an comprehensive family history of high blood heart and pressure problems, as well as my own past with Preeclampsia, I didn’t want to take any chances. I knew it was time to essentially kick things into high equipment. I had developed already again started training, but I needed something that was a bit more structured.

Enter Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide. I’m confident that if you’re mixed up in blogging world, on Twitter, are into working out, and are on Instagram, you might have come across at least an associate or two of Kayla’s Army. I purchased the BBG and immediately began. In the beginning I possibly could hardly do 5 burpees without getting winded, I kid you not! And I adored to hate every second from it.

You do not know how big this was for me! Basically what I’m attempting to state is that everyone has high factors and low factors. I’m lucky enough to have become one of those people, that despite the level of difficulty of the workout – I’m now finally on BBG 2 – I really do truly enjoy working out for the most part.

Unless I’m so sore I cannot walk and feel like I’m dying, it is never a chore for me really. But I have had some lows as I’ve approached the middle of my Thirties. Along the way following the holidays Someplace, I started eating in a way that threw a curveball within my already fragile human hormones totally. The pudge around my middle which i worked so hard to lose, returned and so did my “love handles”.

The last almost a year have been a constant learning from your errors, racking your brains on what works best for me. My Human hormones are out of balance and as of this true point I think I might be experiencing Adrenal Exhaustion, but There is a great supplement regimen that appears to work well and am just fine tuning my eating.

I’m considering trying Paleo at this point. I’ve dabbled for some time. I began operating last originate even, something I thought I would do never, and after a couple weeks into it, I really began to love it. I did so it regularly all summer long and simply a couple of weeks ago starting having issues with a high heart rate, lots of discomfort and my usual routine just not feeling good anymore (hence the adrenal fatigue). So I’m back again to LISS in support of running a few miles one day a week easily can. By the end of your day it’s just as much of the mental fight as a physical one.

I’m slowly understanding how to forget about my perfectionism and become happy with who I am. Which if you understand me, you know is very difficult. Right now I’m just happy that I’m happy 90% of the time. Despite the fact that I still haven’t achieved all of my health goals, I went from the average Resting Heart Rate to a fantastic, almost Athlete’s Resting HEARTRATE! And this is the most muscular and healthy I’ve ever been in my life, despite the fats I have to lose. My outlook isn’t perfect all the time, and I really do have my days.

But I’m ok with that! 1. Progress is Progress. It generally does not mean it’s ok to excuse multiple binges in a week, or not staying on your training routine for multiple days – providing yourself a free pass. But sometimes life happens and we are in need of a break. A break from the everyday, from ripping ourselves apart, from breaking and rebuilding our body, and from the mental taxing.
