That was only 5 years ago but I SO understand what those 'old' people I worked with meant. I mean, I still play soccer about 2 nights a week and I lift or find other activities to keep active but it feels much more like a chore. I still love to run but I just can't hack it in the heat anymore so I'm forced to find alternatives that aren't as enjoyable. The trouble is, I think I was ahead of my time. When did being healthy become trendy? Why couldn't it have been trendy when everyone thought I was bananas and how come eating carbs can't be really in right now? I NEED THE CARBS. Also, I'm tired of hearing about Paleo this and Crossfit that. Can we talk about something else? Like carbs!
Anyway, I'm currently trying to be 'extra good' right now. It's going alright but the hot, humid summer we're having isn't helping. Between Key West Trip at the end of the month and the whole Getting Married thing I think I owe it to myself to not look like a doughy P.O.S. so I'm attempting to stay on the straight and narrow although I gander the late night pizza-fest post friends bachelorette this past weekend probably didn't do me any favors. Also putting a damper on my Plan Du Health was the fact that I had a hematoma on my leg that prevented me from doing anything remotely active for a month. A MONTH.
Hot, Humid, Natalie sans Excercise for a MONTH. That's basically the scariest thing alive. Poor Soldier who lives with me. There were a lot of moments like these:
Let's just say it's really good that The Soldier is a patient man...and also that he got an air conditioner for the rest of the apartment Idon'tcarehowmuchtheelectricbillisgoingtobe #famouslastwords. Since that blessed piece of machinery made it's way into our lives I've gone from full on rage to this:
But I digress.
The moral of this story is I'm back and determined to not be lazy. I'll let you know how it goes.
