160525 – Moving Forward

If anyone has been wondering why I’ve made so few posts the past 3 months , I’ve had to take a sabbatical for personal reasons beyond my control and I’m just now building up steam.  I had a great personal loss in January leaving me physically, mentally, and emotionally tattered, and the gym was honestly the last place I wanted to be. All I’ve wanted to do after work was have a beer, play with my horses, and feel sorry for myself. I tried to return to training a month ago, but it was just too soon…I was just not healed up enough to see it through.  Eventually with some help of loved ones, I’ve made it “mission-status” to get back what I’ve lost in fitness.  I’ve successfully made it through 8 workouts and really cleaned up my diet in the last week and a half.  I’m refocusing my efforts and feel like I’m heading on the right path again.  If you find your self in my shoes (hopefully not) HERE is a great article for helping you make your return injury-free.
