Already mid-week, how wonderful! Today is day 11 of the Ultimate Reset and I’m feeling awesome! I’ve been sleeping so good. Today, my body clock woke me up at 5:30, 45 minutes before my alarm, so I got out of bed and made it into work early to blog.
I haven’t had much to say on here other than discussing the cleanse because my meals are based on what the book is telling me to eat and I’m not supposed to be exercising (although I have been doing some light work outs, shh!). Since I’m half way through the cleanse, I thought today would be a good time to discuss the balancing act and how I’m going to make life work, post-cleanse.
My New Year resolution was to do a better job of balancing my life. I need to find time for things like workouts and blogging and I need to make it a priority to see my family and friends. In addition to that, of course there’s work… and because I really want a full plate, I decided to go back to school. It’s all great, because I love being busy, but I’m going to need a plan to keep my head on straight!
I want to continue meal planning similar meals to the Resest once it’s complete and that can all go down on Sundays for the most part – so, I’m not too worried about that. My main concern is getting my workouts in and allowing myself the hour to go to the gym and not feeling guilty that I’m not at home studying. I’m also playing with the idea of going back to Renegade, as I have never been stronger as I was the months I spent working out with Jen and Chris. There are also other gyms in the area with similar workout styles that I need to checkout, too!
If I do that, I plan to still keep my regular gym membership, so I need to crunch numbers and see if A.) I want to take on the extra bill each month and B.) If I’ll allow myself the time to go there without worrying about school while I’m there.
I’m putting together a tentative schedule to start getting used to the idea before I make any decision. Here’s what I’m thinking:
Monday: 6am lift – no class, study at night
Tuesday: Cardio – workout at lunch, class at night
Wednesday: Renegade – no class, study after workout
Thursday: 6am lift – class at night
Friday: Cardio – no class, workout before or after work, TBD
Sunday: Rest or light cardio
I know if I WANT to make it work, I will. Everything is just an adjustment when you add things to an already full plate. Working out is a huge priority for me, though and I want to make sure I’m making time for it for my physical and mental well-being. The cleanse is over on January 31st, so February will be the start of this new plan. By then, I’ll have decided about Renegade and will be in a routine with school, work and personal stuff…. hopefully!
I’m going to be 27 in 13 days and I’m feeling really good about where my life is at. I keep saying 2015 is MY year and I wholeheartedly believe that it will be. I have a lot going on and I’m really excited for what’s to come!
I saw this sign in Austin while I was there for Christmas and decided it’s going to be my new motto!
There’s so much more in store for F2BF, so stay tuned!
