It’s all about change

Wow, I just realized how late it is! But I’m awake so I’m going to write this post anyway. I graduated! Can you believe it? I almost can.

 

I don’t have pictures from actual graduation yet, but these are some of my favorite so far.

I’m no longer a high school student. I’m officially a college freshman. This is a big change. And since my blog is called “healthy in high school” it’s time to change it too, right? I have created a brand new site, and I’m so excited for it. I love the look, and I can’t wait to be more involved with it in the future. Head on over there, and subscribe by going to the “side bar” page and scrolling down.

All of my content from this site is now over there. *fingers crossed everything worked with that*

So good bye high school and Healthy in High School…hello college and Blue-eyed Pre-med.

Thank you all for following these sporadic posts. I hope to get more consistent. Hopefully I will have more to write about once I get to college.

Supporting my Camp Family

Hi guys. A few days ago, one of my great friends from camp texted me. She told me that one of our counselor’s twin sister was diagnosed with stage 4 non-Hodgkins lymphoma. Let me tell you, word spread fast around the camp people:) Soon, that friend had shared it on our camp group text. Another camp friend shared a link to support her by buying a t-shirt. I just want to ask as many people as possible to pray for her. Her name is Jackie.

They have raised a lot of money and have sold way over their t-shirt goal. So again, I just ask that you all pray for her healing and comfort. Also that the doctors will know what they are doing:)

That’s all for right now. Thanks guys:)

Tired Bones

Here is a post that I wrote about a week ago. I thought I would share it with you to give you encouragement.

 

Hey guys,

It has been about a week since I started my fitness journey. I didn’t exercise Wednesday or Thursday. I have already accepted that Wednesdays wont be a big workout day. We have bible study in the evening so we never go home. In fact, I go home with a friend right after school, and I don’t want to workout at her house! Thursday was all on me though. My mom’s school had a snow day so I wasn’t able to get to school to get any books to do my work. We went over to my grandma’s house and I sat around basically all day. I felt really lazy that day…yeah it wasn’t good. I worked out on Friday and Saturday though.

 

I haven’t done yoga since about Monday. I have a piece of advice for ya’ll. Always, always, always (or at least most of the time:)) do yoga right after your workout. I have felt the difference even after two days of yoga and then no yoga. My back and knees and chest have all felt off. My back cracks very often. Sometimes it cracks if I breath deeply or bend my knees. Yoga has loosened me up and now I cant stop! I am going to be doing some yoga today!!

 

Now for the real reason of this post. I AM TIRED. My bones, my mind, my skin is tired. I know that I cant stop doing this or I will feel worse. This morning I went down to the basement to grab my laundry and the basket was almost too heavy for me to carry up the stairs. In some ways this is a good feeling because I know it isn’t because I am lazy and sitting around all day. No, I have started to eat better and workout almost every day. But then again, I feel miserable. Today in church, I stood up for the last song and I got stuck (almost) half way up. My upper back seized up and my head started to swim. It brings up the question: am I doing too much? Am I actually hurting my body more than benefitting it? I don’t know. Maybe it is just that I am stressed about school. I also think that some of this has to do with a virus of some sort. I just feel drained.

 

Whatever the reason, I know I am not going to stop. I know that in some way I am benefitting my body. I will just drink more water, and eat more fruit vegetables and protein. If anyone has any tips for me, remember that I am not a professional AT ALL. This is just trial and error. I believe in what I am doing and how I am doing it. For me, that is enough.

 

What I am trying to say here, is that if this is happening to you, its happening to me too. You aren’t the only one. Haha, now please tell me that some one reading this has gone through this too because I feel like I am the only one.

 

I guess that’s it. Please comment with questions or advice. I want to hear it all!

 

 

Here’s an update on that: I do feel much better. I am pretty sure that I felt better the very next day! So its ok to feel like that. It will pass! I wanted to share that with you to remind you of how little I know. Of how ignorant I am in the ways of fitness. 🙂

Today I did a nice little 30 minute workout. I did a ten minute full body workout and then a 20 minute yoga session. I am probably going to do something tonight and then work on my flexibility. You can expect some yummy Whole30 and not Whole30 recipes coming soon!

 

Questions: have you felt this way? What did you do to feel better? Are you feeling like this right now?
