    Listened to a great podcast about fitness and it re framed my mindset. I don't feel so overwhelmed now and will continue to trust this process.

    Do you recall the name of the podcast? I would like to listen as well!

    Yes- so I preface this by saying it is Shaun T- however the podcasts are free and he only mentions his programs a few times + his advertisements that probably pay for the podcast. I wouldn't share if it was just a giant ad though :)

    Podcast Name: Trust and Believe with Shaun T
    Episode 234 Finishing Strong
    Episode 222- How to mentally get through a tough workout
    Episode 216- 12 ways to stay committed all year
    Episode 214- three things to do after your workout for success

    All of them are really good and got me back in the right mental headspace.

    Picking a really awesome playlist on apple music to get my lifting done. Yesterday I wasn't done work until after 11 pm and I wasn't sure how my 4:30 workout would go- but it was fire. Managed to lift 10 lbs more as well :)!

    Chating with a friend on the phone, wile walking. Then taking a longer walk so I can keep Chating.
  • Knowing that I had lunch planned and ready to cook and being able to augment my breakfast by 200 calories on a day when I knew I was going to be doing hard physical work before lunch. That way I didn't come to lunch starving and I feel pretty much okay and will be able to handle the usual dinner and snack regimen.

    Getting up and doing exercise right away. I did nearly 90 minutes (30 minutes cardio tabata workout with Amy from Bodyfit, 25 minutes Scottish Ballet beginners 55+, 15 arms workout with light dumbbells, 15 minutes rowing - 3km) and was very pleased with myself.
