So what the hell happened to me? Quick summary. So last you all saw me, I fractured my foot and was in a walking boot. I wore the walking boot for approximately 2 months, and have been finished with it since the beginning of October. During that time, I used the bike at the gym and did a little weightlifting (only if Cameron came with me), but obviously no classes, no yoga and most importantly, no running.
So why didn't I reappear in the beginning of October when the boot came off??
Cuz we got married!!
Here are a couple of pictures from our wedding:
OK, that was October 14, why didn't I start blogging and exercising right after that??
That's a little tougher to answer.... I'm not sure why to be honest. I wanted to and even had moments where I thought about writing, but then I just didn't. But now I feel ready and I'm back and ready to document my exercise "adventures" and other life events.
However, I've done a lot of thinking about this "journey" I started over a year ago. When I started exercising, I was just trying to get into the habit of doing something a few times a week. When I started blogging, my goal was to try all sorts of different forms of exercise.
When I was injured, I found what I missed most was running. I'm not sure if I missed running because I'd been training or because that was the form of exercise (I feel like I've said exercise too much) that alleviated the most stress for me.
I think my journey is evolving. It makes sense thinking about it. My first goal was to just do ANYTHING. It really was to just make it to the gym or a class several times a week. I didn't care how I did, I just had to stay for 30 minutes or the duration of the class. My next goal was to explore different options. I thought that I would get bored doing the same thing (hence exercise ADD), but I also was looking for something that I enjoyed, was good at, or wanted to keep going back to. Unexpectedly, I found that: running.
So I think my focus now is running, and improving my time and increasing distance. I still plan to take classes when I can and do other activities, but my main focus is really going to be running. With that, I want to change the name of my blog and update the format. Suggestions are welcome!!
How have your goal changed over time? What should I rename my blog?
