WhAt A wHiRlWiNd!

10 Sep

Hello loves. So… I haven’t posted a lot lately…that’s because I recently started my social work practicum and it has been extremely hard getting adjusted. If you look under my Social Work tab, you will see the post about where I am doing my field work. I love being in a school district but there is so much to take in.

The first week that I started, I ended up getting extremely sick. I was on antibiotics, nausea medication, and I felt miserable! Then this week, I reinjured my shoulder. I am DEVASTATED about this injury. I’ve been struggling with it for a while now and I am going to go see a surgeon next Wednesday. So, my gym routines have been horrible! I was sick…and couldn’t go. Now my shoulder is messed up and I can barely lift! So….things have been extremely stressful.

I am really having hard time managing field work, my two classes, eating healthy, working out, and my social life. I know everyone goes through change..however, I have major anxiety when it comes to things changing! Since I can’t really do any lifting…I have to somehow come up with a new way of working out. Those who know me know that I HATE doing any sort of cardio. If anything I will do 10 minutes of HIIT…I’ll blog about that soon. SOOOOO now I am pretty much forced to. I am thinking of coming up with interval circuit type work and tabatas..that way I am not forced to be on a treadmill! Also, my diet is going to have to be pretty darn good!

What’s the motto to this blog post you wonder? Well…I wanted to show you guys that I am a normal everyday person who struggles with the same things that everyone else does. A lot of people assume that I have a “perfect” diet and a “perfect” workout routine. Well, I don’t. And I never will. I struggle just like everyone else. I have good days and bad days. Stressful days and relaxing days. Happy days and sad days. What keeps me motivated you ask? MY BEFORE PICTURE! I know that if I stop trying at the gym and stop meal planning…I would go right back to that miserable girl with the fake smile. I see how unhappy she was. I know the intense pain and hurt that she was going through. And you know what….Struggling in the gym and struggling coming up with healthy recipes is 1,000 times better than going back to that place. Eventually, my routine will kick back in. And I will be back to lifting all of the time. But, for now, I have to make due! I know that GOD is in control and everything is in his hands. “I will never leave you or forsake you.”

So…to help others who are maybe going through the same thing I am right now…I was thinking about making a list of all of the foods that I eat and foods that are good for you! Some of you may not know where to start and what to buy! They will be basic things and of course tasty! What do you guys think??

Remember, YOU ARE WORTH IT!
