After the semester ended and the 12-week mark approached, I decided it was time to start back on the Buff Bride wagon. With finals and papers my workout train was pretty much derailed for the month of November and the debris spilled into the first half of December, and I got myself WAY out of shape. Like, hurt myself out of shape: as I pulled out my dumbbells from their hiding spot at home (I hate gyms) to start Day 1, I managed to pull my right hamstring, first thing, before I even started working out. Smooth move, ex-lax.
I suffered through the workout despite the injury (except the standing kickbacksI'm determined, not a masochist), and I am so glad that I did because I already feel a million times better. In the flurry of lifewedding, school, work, familythe easiest (and worst!) person to neglect is yourself. Exercise has almost always been a big part of my lifeit's meditative for me in a way that gets me out of my navel-gazing for a timeand it was silly of me to let it go for so long. After only an hour of work, I already feel healthier, physically and emotionally. Even though I'll be limping my way through the next few days. :)
What do you do to get your focus off the wedding?
