Being Accountable: Workout Recap

Lately I've been slacking on my workouts, and it stinks! Also, I know it's a few days early but I wanted to say it:

I'm SO happy that it's Summer, and even with all the heat I don't care. I can't wait to go swimming or to the beach soon. 🙆🙌

Anyways, I've been slacking so hard lately, and it's mainly been a mix of stressing over my cat McLovin, not sleeping well at night (partially because of the former), and the intense heat hanging over the city. 100 degrees and humid makes me really glad I got Movie Pass though.😃

I don't know if you guys handle stress the same way that I do, but when I feel so much coming at me from all angles my first reaction is to (figuratively) ball up in a corner and completely shut down. Nothing gets done, no training, organization, healthy eating, nada. It's been my way of coping when too much comes in and it does no one any good. I realize that in order to improve I need to change these coping tactics, and what used to help a lot was writing down what I need to do, or what I did for the day. Partially this made me accountable, and seeing a schedule on paper leaves less to guess work.

In preparation for my upcoming marathon training, and feeling like I'm going into it blind and nervous, I'm going to start forming good habits now. Once a week, possibly Friday, I'm going to have a weekly training re-cap on the blog. I may not write down every small detail of what I'm doing (for example, each weight I lift, etc.), but I feel like it will get me into a good habit of being mindful of everyday actions.

How do you handle stress?
