It's also been winter. I've been taking all excuses to not be active and then I've been trying to offset overwhelming stress with food.
As you can imagine, I am not happy with who I am right now.
Nothing will change overnight, but I'm taking steps to get to where I want to be. I went for a run this morning, which puts me at over 10 for the year. It doesn't sound like much, but I don't think I ran that many times in all of 2013. I'm finding ways to eat more vegetables and less processed food.
And hopefully, I'll have the first real ride of 2014 today.
It's a new year. I'm focusing on the little bay horse who needs me to be fit and strong to give him the best ride possible for all our upcoming adventures.
No more excuses. I'm laying down the miles, even when I don't feel like it and can only sort of breathe.
