I am working each mouth with a buddy from my own Carried Away About Nutrition Buddy Program on a couple goals to keep my health in focus. This month I have a goal to record my food in My Fitness Pal and to practice yoga one time a week (check out the full post here). My buddy and I have been texting and sending picture messages back and forth, to aid in what you would call compliance :) I love having a buddy to talk healthy with and it inspires me to continue what I do.
So far this month I have had two yoga sessions, one on the Fourth of July, and one this past Saturday. I do love to do yoga when I make the time for it, but this Saturday things did not end well. Let’s just keep it at I am injury prone, and threw out my back. I was pretty miserable until I made it to the chiropractor Monday and my L4 and L5 are still not very happy. So I am on a ice and anti-inflammatory routine, and finally starting to come out of the woods… If I am going to do more yoga this month, I may have to stick with something like the tree pose. Unfortunately, injuries and setbacks are a part of life. I am finally learning to listen to my body, not that I like it, and take care of it with rest when necessary.
I have an 11 day log in streak going on My Fitness Pal! I get an alert on my phone at 10:30 if I haven’t logged breakfast and this really seems to help, especially on those really busy days. Recently, I have been cooking from scratch and making meals up as I go and that is a big hindrance when I am trying to get an accurate intake. Tracking has been really helpful the last few days since I am hurt and not as active as normal. I am able to keep myself in check!
