Non-tea related revelation, can skip if desired
So I decided, yesterday, randomly in the morning, that I need to do something about how I am living life. I go to work, sit at my desk, eat lunch, sit at my desk, go home, eat, sit at computer or watch tv, go to sleep. Not very active, since I drive to work and drive most places really. So yeah, yesterday I was like screw this, I need to get heathier. Also, my back has been getting really bad (poor posture = many many knots and tension headaches) and yes, I just haven’t felt good lately really, even with all my tea. Oh, I am also going to try to cut back on caffeine for a bit for my anxiety.
So today, I went for a run! I was going to go yesterday, but the terrible excuses got me haha, but today I went! Now, it wasn’t a full, run the whole time thing, but I sweated and I couldn’t breathe and I’m sore tonight, so it must have done something! I am going to try to go every two days. I got in this habit last year, and I felt amazing, but for some reason quit halfway through the summer, and it went downhill from there. So this summer, I want to do it every second day for the first bit until I can actually do a decent amount of running without feeling horrible lol, and then I’d like to stick with 2 or 3 times a week. I need to do this. It’d be nice to progress into some yoga-like things or going to the gym for some weights, but for now, I will start small. I don’t need to lose weight at all from running, but I do need to get in shape and I’m hoping some physical activity will also help with how anxious I seem to get sometimes. Sorry for pouring my heart out, Steepsters, but I just felt the need to tonight, and I’m always happy you guys are here to listen!
OK, if you read through that, kudos, and thank you for reading my lamentations and goals. Sorry for cluttering up the tasting note with unnecessary and unrelated things. Now, onto this tea!
So after my exercise, I was feeling all cliched and was like “I’ll have The Skinny tea!!” LOL. But I do like this tea, I still can’t believe I used to dislike it so much, and now that I’m down to about one cup left in the bag, I might have to buy another decent sized bag just to have on hand for times of need, as this is a tea I crave at times. It was orangey and fresh, very enjoyable! See previous notes on this tea :)
