Well I feel robbed of my time today. And yesterday. Completely robbed! Damn you daylight savings time! You’re throwing me off and wrecking my mood. Luckily I’m heading to the gym soon to rid myself of the grumpiness and get back my schedule. Minus having to do the CF Open 17.3 workout today. Balls.
It’s been a crazy couple of days. I left for LA on Thursday last week, went to Expo West (a natural products expo) on Thursday and Friday, then dealt with the insanity of travel yesterday. All of this means I walked a sh*t ton, tried more snacks then I ever need to eat in my lifetime, walked around more people than I’d ever like to, and dealt with LAX, aka Hell. I know I sound like I’m complaining, but I’m actually not. It was a really great weekend that was spent with two of my favorite friends that I rarely get to see, in a new experience that I can’t wait to go back to next year.
It was such a cool experience, but it’s definitely an experience that’s tough on your health. Even though you’re at an expo that has all natural products and up-and-coming businesses, you’re still surrounded my sugar and excess salt and unneeded daily food. We would stop by one booth, try their new nut and fruit ball creation then walk 5 feet to another booth and have almost the same thing. Within 5 minutes of being at the show, you were sugar buzzed and ready for a nap. It reminded me of what people often talk about at my gym: they have to take clients out and one drink turns into many because they are trying to build that relationship. Well I was at this expo, trying to chat with companies and find out what they had to offer, so I had a hard time saying no to their product. Well one product turns into 10 which turns into 20, and before you know it, you’re sugar wasted and feeling like crap.
This is the perfect reminder that you can only control so much in life. But when you can control it, get back on track. When I wasn’t at the expo, I was loading up on water and trying to get vegetables anywhere I could. And when I could get a workout in, I did it. The workout wasn’t perfect, the meals weren’t perfect, and my water habits weren’t perfect, but all those better decisions were helping me dig myself out of sugar addiction and get back on the road to recovery come Monday. And here Monday is, and I’m ready to get back to my usual self.
We all have moments in our lives where we indulge more, but those moments don’t define us. They just paint a picture of how we will deal with that situation the next time it comes around. So stop moping about a poor food decision or not getting a workout in, just get back on track today, right now, this very second! The quicker you embrace the future instead of wallowing in the past, the more you will enjoy your life, no matter what stage you are at!
