Thank you all for your kind words related to Monday's post and for those that reached out privately to share your own experiences and struggles. I had my first appointment with my new therapist yesterday and I meet my psychiatrist in two weeks.
This is a healthy living blog and, of course, that includes mental health so I'll definitely be updating as necessary.
On to other things!
Saturday: 1 mile
Monday: 0.68 mile
Today: FitStar workout
One of the things that always comes up with counseling is the "Have you lost interest in things you have loved in the past?" and the answer is yes. I was telling my therapist I'm training now and it's such a struggle because the first mile is a liar -- when I am running such short distances I have to slough through. And I'm slow. And I'm fat. And I haven't been running that much in almost a year thanks to my broken ankle last May.
Plus, as much as I love my treadmill it's also a love hate relationship because I haaaaate the treadmill. I love having it as it makes it super convenient when it's 5am and dark and cold outside but, still. It's the treadmill. But, when it's early Saturday morning and when you know that if you don't run right.that.moment, you won't get your run in, it certainly comes in handy.
Luckily it's supposed to be nice tomorrow so I'm hoping I can get a run in outside.
Love form the ashes,
