COVID-19 has shifted my life in a whole new direction. Ever since the virus reached Austin, my school made students learn remotely. Now that school is remote, so are sports. Instead of having a built-in workout everyday between volleyball and softball, I practice at home by myself and without a coach, meaningI have to self-motivate instead of attending practice everyday. My volleyball coach helps by sending us drills that we can try at home.
Sometimes I feel lazy and unmotivated.Working out everyday and eating healthy is hard without my normal school and sports routine. I can feel the effects of not working out everyday because everytime I actually practice, I can feel myself move slower since I am not keeping my muscles toned. I realize that if I keep up these habits, trying to pick up sports again will be difficult. So I am trying my best to shake bad habits by moving my body when I can and by cooking yummy recipes that give me strength. My favorite thing to eat for breakfast is Beef Sausage & Egg Muffin Cups. I make them with my sister and sometimes we even swap the beef sausage for leftover pot roast.
