My oh my, where has the summer gone? It’s officially fall here in Colorado. The weather has been cooler, a slight breeze to the air, and sweater and boot season is upon us. I am happy fall is here. For me, seasons are a time of change and renewal. Fall for me is a time when I start to calm down, slow down and streamline a lot of the business in my life.
But enough of fall, for now.
What have I been up to this summer?
This summer, I really got back into myself–my fitness, my nutrition, my happiness and my growth.
It always happens when I don’t force it. Little changes over time and CONSISTENCY. I started making better food choices, like cutting out the “healthy” ice cream after every dinner. I was consistent in my workouts and really scheduled them in.
With these changes, my mind began to shift. I felt healthier in my mind, and not just my body. I started to appreciate what my body could do and, therefore, wanted to treat it better. I shifted my priorities–not just to “better” food, but bettering my relationships. I focused on building my friendships back up, because for me, my relationships and how lonely I feel, directly reflects how I am in my workout and my nutrition.
As fall approaches, I hope to keep up this new shift in my well-being. Currently, I am finishing up a big fitness program focusing on heavy lifting and metabolic conditioning. Once I finish up in a month, I will be shifting more towards yoga and gymnastic-type movements to give my body a rest and a different stimulus.
How was your summer? Was does fall mean to you and your well-being?
