WELCOME TO REAL LIFE:
In just a little over 10 days my physique has completely changed, and not in ways I’m happy with, I feel it weighing me down physically, mentally, and emotionally. My second job has started and I have 50 million additional things pilling up on my plate. I’m exhausted, hardly have time to myself, I’m not finding that I have time to cook or eat the right food because I don’t even have time to go to the grocery store. My horses have been great trying to take care of me but even my rides now are exhausting me like they didn’t before.
I had a complete breakdown mid workout today and cried for the first time ever during a workout and had to call it early. I don’t EVER quit Wods but I had to today..... Life is hard. It’s fickle, challenging, busy and it’s super easy to forget to take care of yourself. I’ve been going so non stop that today I finally reached my limit and my body gave out on me. It’s scary, frustrating and hard. I’m trying not to get down on myself because looking at all I’m doing honestly I’m surprised it didn’t happen sooner. (Hindsight)
So I’m going to do two things:
1. At least for the time being I’m going to have to back off on my training. My body isn’t capable of my normal intensity right now. 😭
2. I’m going to look into shipping pre-made meals to myself from a company. My nutrition is super important to me and I want to maintain it and if I don’t have time I have to spend the extra money to make sure it’s maintained.
Keep pushing forward but be aware to take care of yourself always as your number 1 priority. I constantly forget to put myself first and I’m learning the tough way it’s not right. Make time for you and your health you’ll be much better off because of it.
