I just wanted to say THANK YOU for all the kind words of ENCOURAGEMENT. It really made my day! I just know I’ll rock this Triathlon!
On a side note, I decided to get rid of The Daily Sweat page. This page tracks my daily workouts. I’ve been really thinking about whether or not The Daily Sweat page was a good thing for my blog. Coming from the ED side, it can make someone focus too much on what they did that day or last week or last month. This can lead to developing an exercise addiction. I can say that yes, I’ve been there, but it is part of the learning and healing process for me. Too much info for you? Perhaps, but I am trying to keep it real.
Other questions came to mind:
- Do my readers only think I do cardio, cardio, cardio and nothing else? This may be true, I love cardio. It is my thing, because I want to keep my endurance level high.
- Do people judge me for this? I am sure they do. I have received emails from readers criticizing my normal routine and how it isn’t good. I won’t get into that right now.
- How does it affect others who have/are suffering from ED? I don’t want to help encourage those who may be suffering themselves. This leads me to the issue of the comparison trap. As humans we cannot focus on what other people do. We are ALL different and UNIQUE! What works for me, may not work for you.
Basically, I just don’t want to constantly update the The Daily Sweat page everyday and struggle with the thoughts that I didn’t do enough or what are other people thinking. I will still share my fitness/workouts/running recaps in my posts, but I won’t have a page dedicated to it.
Has anyone been there? Has it helped?
Do you feel that there is a comparison trap?
Thank you all for understanding. I know it isn’t a huge deal, but I just want to be upfront! 🙂
I still have my Fitness page that has Ab, circuit and treadmill workouts. I am constantly adding workouts to this page!
On the note of sharing my workouts, I did a 20 mile bike yesterday evening. Ended it with a pretty steep hill that got my legs going. Woo!
BTW, don’t forget to enter the Giveaway! It ends on August 15, 2013!
