- I did not turn to emotional eating to comfort myself, & constitently logged my calories & exercise
- I continued to work out, even if it was just walking/slower running vs. my usual StrongLifts routine
- I took the injury seriously- I iced my neck/back almost every day, as well as spent time in the hot tub
These are three things I would have had a hard time doing 6 months or a year ago, and it feels great to know that my habits have changed for the better.
I also had a realization, which I shared on Twitter this week:
Kinda goofy, I know! But after taking a 5 day break from pushing it hard at my workouts like I usually do, I couldn't resist- on Sunday, I ran at an all-out pace for 6 miles. It felt AWESOME! I didn't realize how much I has missed running, and pushing myself that hard, but boy did I! Realizing that was probably my high of the week!
What was your high of the week?
