A Rough 48 Hours...

life, brittanyBrittany GrahamComment

Life seems to have an odd way of knocking you right on your a** right when everything is going great. Two weeks ago I was chillin' in Vegas then spent two days resting at my parents home in Dallas. As soon as I came back home I was greeted with a severe headache for three straight days that resulted in a visit to the doctor's office and two very painful shots. I was quarantine in my room all weekend long with little to do. So you can imagine once the meds kicked in when Monday morning rolled around I was more than ready to get back to work and have my regular life back. I jumped out bad around 5:30am and headed out shortly after for morning workouts. The day was great and life was good again. Our team played wiffle ball and it was an absolute blast.

But later that evening due to circumstances beyond my control that I would rather not get into detail about, I was forced to stay on my friend's couch, and the next night at a nearby hotel. Despite all of this, work has been in full force non-stop with meetings, workouts, and recruits all week so far. I've been flat-out exhausted and not being able to have the comfort of sleeping in your own bed so unexpectedly hasn't helped.

That's life though am I right? Always going downhill in a hurry out of nowhere. Now comes the hard part of getting myself back up and having faith that God will see me through this difficult time. It's easy to question, it's easy to complain. So right now, I'm trying my best to remain positive, stay busy to take my mind of my problems, not worry or ask why me? But simply wake up, face everything head on and know that it's a new day and God's got me.

I will continue to pray and not let everything I'm currently facing bring me down.

This New Workout Thing...

If you read my blog last weekend about my trip to Houston to see my best friend Bethany, then you know she has inspired me to get a Fitbit and be more active. As former division I college athlete I always found it hard to workout for "fun" without a game or season to prepare for once my career ended. When I was still playing, I could run and workout for days, lift, shoot, and run for miles and love every second of it. However, now that I don't true reason to run other than to be healthy I've been nothing but lazy since then. Luckily for me I've been blessed with amazing genes and metabolism. I'm capable of eating hot Cheetos, donuts, sour patch kids, and coke without gaining a pound. No but really...

As much of a blessing has it's been to be able to do nothing, and eat anything I want without my boding changing, at times I feel guilty. Guilty because  for so many people who have to watch every little thing they eat and spend hours in the gym and still aren't satisfied with their body.

For me though, the desire to start being more active isn't about the physical aspect of my body looking a certain way. At this point in my life I'm more concerned with living a long and healthy life and doing everything in my power to preserve those precious years while I'm still young. With that being said however, it will also be an added bonus that my body will tone up a bit more.

As for completely  ditching the hot Cheetos and donuts, that's a tough one. Maybe in time, but just like adapting to this new fitness routine of mine all things take time. So I'm more than willing to take the necessary baby steps to become a healthier person. To the world it may appear I am skinny and healthy, but on the inside I truly know I've got to be better if I want to live a long, happy, healthy life.

I've started off my mornings this week with hour long workouts prior to starting my days and already I can feel a difference with more attentiveness and energy all day long!

SN: I also created a pretty bomb playlist on Spotify to get me going, check it out :)
