Days 5 – 9

“The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.” – Mother Teresa

Despite one Gala, one cocktail party, 60 hour work weeks including nights and weekends, and one small gathering with friends my eating has been Whole 30 compliant. Ie. clean.

I do confess to goggle-ing Whole 30 ice cream over the weekend. Yeah, it doesn’t exist.

My clothes are feeling looser, my appetite is up, my sleep is deep. I feel good most of the time. On Sunday I jogged a mile to Strongman and on the road to recovery managed to work up to 95lbs. clean and jerk overhead during the WOD.

Yesterday, despite much dragging of the feet I did make it to the 3pm WOD. I’m slowly getting back into getting myself to a WOD at least 4 times per week. At times it is not so fun, mostly in the moments leading up to going. Truth; I’ll look for any excuse not to go. I keep trying to figure out why this is, why am I avoiding, and have decided it’s because I know my stamina is for shit and my strength gains have diminished. I’m back to being last in many things. I find this incredibly frustrating and am struggling against it. Chin up, I tell myself. Don’t let this get you down. It is all a journey and if you keep at it, if you keep chipping away at it eventually you find your way back to that position of strength. Yes, this is what I keep telling myself. Somedays it works and others, like right now, not so much. Either way I promised myself to hit a WOD today.
