Row, row, row your boat

Okay. Nice. Worked out for the first time since mid-September last night. (I've done some little hikes and that mud run, but those were more activities than exercise!) I rowed while I watched The Office!

Um. Super hard.

At the beginning of the year, when I was really working out hard... cardio every day, strength every other day, and getting kind of really ripped... the rower was my favorite workout. It wasn't EASY but it was do-able and fun.

I am a little out of shape (cringe).

I was burning after two minutes! I had to break after ten minutes, did some squats, then tried again.

It is going to take some time to get back to where I was. But I want it!

Also, weighed in today. Felt like it was time to be accountable for my actions (especially since I've been discussing/thinking about people who talk but don't do). I weighed in at about 123 (I have two scales, one weighed me in at 122, the other at 124... most of my weights are averages of the two readings.)


I definitely want to get my bad-disordered-emotional eating under control. It's not healthy to think of food like I do sometimes. BUT, I am not piling on the weight, either. I am still tracking (even when I admit to you that I had a cookie or too much wine). I am still 90% paleo. I would say I am 95% completely clean in my eating, as well. I cook for myself twice a day. No store bought meals for me! I don't lay around all day, I am decently active.

The hard and fast rules worked in the past, and they are working now, even when life is going all crazy!

I am not going to get off this path. Common sense works. Clean, whole foods heal your body. Food is medicine. Food is fuel. Activity is important. Moderation is important.

This is for life :)
