Two mantras on my mind this beautiful Saturday morning:
An object in motion, stays in motion..
“Every action you take is a vote for the type of person you wish to become. No single instance will transform your beliefs, but as the votes build up, so does the evidence of your new identity.” – James Clear (Atomic Habits)
I have the worst cramps and feel almost hungover from a week of little / poor sleep, several days consuming alcohol, and several hard workouts that I’m still recovering from.
I really need to do a long run (im registered for the Colfax half marathon in a couple short weeks), and also planning to ride gravel for 1-2 hours with a friend. But all I want to do is lay down from these cramps and sleep off this hangover-like feeling. Seems like I get into this cycle of crash/burn/rest, recover, strengthen back into a healthy routine, then repeat.
I want to be consistent in “voting” for the self I want to become, but I also think I am not 100% sure of what that version of myself is or should be, and how to balance and blend the different pieces of that together:
Successful rockstar at work
Healthy, rested, & slow living
Fun social “yes” girl
Prioritizes deeper relationships w/ family/ close friends
Fit and outdoorsy
