My glucose was @124 this morning, a little up, probably because we had some flatbread pizza for dinner! Not bad though...my ranges were ok for yesterday.
I'm going to work a little bit and then get my sit-ups & walking in before packing orders this morning.
Resting is weird...not that I don't have a ton of practice sitting around chilling out, historically in my life I achieved my black belt in loafing a long time ago...but now, with being so much more active and deliberate with my choices throughout each day...it just felt weird to give myself a day off yesterday. Not that I threw caution to the wind, but I really tried hard to not let my thinking in too much and feel guilty for not doing "something". Underneath the head, deep down I know I'm someone that struggles with going, going, going and then collapse...not the best m/o for the long haul. So trusting that I'll be able to stay motivated after a rest day is a little uncomfortable...but I know it's the right way to go. Practicing consistency and sticking with this plan, building habits for the rest of my life is what I'm working toward.
I get very afraid of sliding backwards, so it takes me a little time to process and get some clarity and be ok with not going full on, wide open all the time. I continually have to remember and remind myself that there is not a clock on this, time is my friend and the successful people I'm getting my inspiration from ALL say slow and deliberate progress is the way to be.
So Sunday...another restful day, aside from maybe 5-6 hours of work....then Monday will start and I can slide back into my comfort zone as of late which seems much more automated and routine.
All of this experience day to day and the observations I'm making are really just helping me to understand how I am, and how I want to be....but, I also need to let that go sometimes and just keep it simple. Make your meal plan, stick to it, take in less than you burn and don't over-complicate this Ryan!
I hope everyone has a Smooth & Easy Sunday, Ryan
