It’s been several months since I’ve been running on a regular basis. Not running has sent me into a spiral of other bad habits. In order to get my running groove back, I’m going to have to change some of my current habits and mindset.
More Strength Training
Strength training isn’t exactly something that I push myself on. I tend to do the bare minimum on my strength training workouts and blame it on not having the right weights. No more excuses. It’s time to get some heavier weights and get the work done.
No More Mindless Nighttime Snacking
I’ve been the world’s worst nightime snacker here lately. And it hasn’t been healthy snacks. I feel like my late night snacking habits are having a significant effect on my weight, which is having a significant effect on my running. No snacks after 7 pm.
No More Soda
Do I really need to say anything more about this? I’ve been drinking soda and I need to stop drinking soda. Enough said.
More Meditation and Positive Self-Talk
I’ve been really beating myself up lately. Lots of negative self-talk has been going on. I haven’t been feeling successful in anything I’m doing. And I’ve just been overwhelmed. It’s time for me to stop with the negative thoughts and start meditating and talking to myself in a positive voice.
No More Weekday Drinking
There is nothing quite like unwinding from a busy day with a good craft brew. Those craft brews are high in calories and carbs. So no more weekday drinking for me. *sad face*
I’ve got my work cut out for me, but I know I can do this. Do you all have any tips for getting back into a running mindset?
